ICAS   Correct!.  But I have received many enquiries as to the potential of being able to produce a camera for the flight of the golfball, so I though I would be polite and try to make an answer.
With the advice from you guys I think I am on the right track to understand the necessary infrastructure of a practice area GOLFCAM..  Information has now come to me from a UK University of their success in tracking tennis balls - see JPEG above.  The suggestion is that the technology can be applied to golf balls, and at a fraction of the cost of Trackman.
Hi K14:   Very encouraging news.  Based on 640 X 512 @ 300IPS in colour then the rate is 7.28 seconds per GB.  I now discover that SSD memory has come down in price and 240GB is available for about $120 so that means the GOLFCAM-01 could offer ( by owner selection in firmware ) to record in RAW video and that would give 29.12 minutes - that is nearly 30 minutes of fantastic quality raw. For those who wanted longer then they could switch to H.264 compressed and a...
mchepp - thanks for that.   My next task is to work out, or find out, exactly how much recording time is required per practice session.  My golf ignorance suggests that it would average out at about two hours and as the GOLFCAMERA-01 need not be switched to RECORD ( by remote RF control ) until a few seconds before the actual club swing takes place then perhaps one hour of actual recording time is all that is needed.   The current conception of the GOLFCAM-01 is raw 12...
SAEVAL125:   I am familiar with all those low cost cameras and I have a lab with about fifty different models in various stages of dismantle.  But it is no use my trying to compete with these big boys.  I could build a twin lens version of the Garmin vehicle unit and use the same SOC but Garmin make 30,000 a month. I have to find a unique niche design that is so different and so better featured that it warrants the higher price due to the lower production rate.  In the...
K14 Hacker: - I will struggle to get the end user price down to the $500 mark as to achieve the 640 X 512 at 300 IPS I will have to use the GP-01 sensor at its component cost of about $200 and just not use its full potential.  I have failed to find any other sensor that will reach 300 IPS.   Lee Tracey
Finally accepted the attachment when I converted  it to JPEG but refused it as a TIFF or PDF or Word or Coreldraw.   Lee Tracey
MCHEPP - I only mentioned the Omnivision and Sony as being sensors I already had in my parts bin but I thought I had made it clear that they would not do the job.  Below is the sensor I will use if this project does get off the ground.  As for the lens:  for my law enforcement evidence cameras I used a board lens that cost $4 - however for the GOLFCAM-01 I will not be able to get that cheap as the camera cannot afford the distortion that the $4 lens created, not that the...
Many thanks for all the suggestions and hopefully more will come  I am getting the aroma that 300 IPS is the target frame rate and that a resolution as low as 640 X 480 will do the job.  Have to go back through my database to try to find a sensor that can meet this.  At the moment I have an Omnvision that stops at 100 IPS and a Sony that stops at 164.  The answer ( unless somebody knows better) is my 1.3M at 1000 but performance reduced to get to the 300 and a suitable...
