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?
