I am working on a project where I am going to need to interface up to 7 cameras in a real-time capture system. What is the best/fastest camera and what type of interface do I need for OpenCV use?

BTW, I tried an IP camera and I get a 1/2 second lag time. This is NOT acceptable!

Some remarks 1. Picking camera interfaces is not in the scope of this OpenCV forum 2. It doesn't depend on the camera, but on how you are grabbing your frames of each camera. I think taking a look at stuff called multi input framegrabbers is a good start 3. A camera with a half second latency is just plain weird and probably something else is causing this.

However as long as topics are not related to OpenCV programming problems, they will get a lock. Other and better places out there to find solutions for this.
