This is the biggest problem with a quickcam. It takes too much CPU
time for too low a frame rate. My feeling is that they MUST move to a
better interface, otherwise something like the Panasonic EggCam is
going to eat their lunch. Costs the same but gives you a true 30fps
without all the CPU time spent flipping bits. Only problem for us is
that there is no Linux driver for the frame grabber. Anybody have
contacts at Panasonic?
