Camera suggestion

For a University Project i have to film a semi-transparent Window, detect certain shapes and send the results to another computer. (Example Picture at bottom of post) The detection is done with c++ using OpenCV in Win7.

I think the simplest solution is to connect the camera directly to a computer and do the Computation on the machine. I need to have at least 25fps, a resolution of 1280 x 1024 would probably be enough for the detection.

I am relativly free in the decision which camera i want to use. Can you suggest a camera that works well with OpenCV and is easy to use?

This Question has been asked a few times, but most of it has no answer or is old:

Recommended HD camera (Best thread i found. suggests logitech quickcam 9000 pro, not on market anymore)

Which Machine Vision Vendor provides OpenCV support (General Advice not sure what to make of it)

Which Camera for body detection (2010, no clear answer)

OpenCV Webcam Compability (2011)

List of compatible camera tested with opencv (dead link, no copy found yet)

Industrial Camera in Python (no answer and not what i need)
