Comparing Video Cameras

Overview

This procedure is used to evaluate the performance of video cameras used on board water rockets.

Equipment

  • Video cameras to compare.
  • Standard scenery

Procedure

  1. Attach both cameras to a common board so that they both film identical scenes.
  2. Start recording of both cameras.
  3. Point the cameras at different scenes, such as bright and dark areas. Rotate and pan the cameras to compare the level of smearing and distortion due to horizontal scan rate in the images.
  4. Obtain comparison images/video from the two cameras.

Notes

  1. Take note of the data and frame rates produced by the different cameras. You can get this information from the captured video files.
