almost any camera will do under windows and
artoolkit. If you use Pintaric's library
for the image acquisition you'll be all set.
The library uses DirectShow and almost all
camera drivers under windows offer DirectShow
I'd recommend the Philips webcams, they do very
well. Also Logitech is quite nice. Consider
that most webcams have no autofocus, so=20
tracking will only work in a certain distance
range. Just check that the camera has autocontrast
and autowhite balance (very useful features for tracking)
Firewire cameras work also without a problem
with artoolkit&windows. Here's to say that some firewire
cameras (like my sony handycam) use interlaced
mode, so you'll have trouble with tracking when
you rapidly move your camera (unless you track
the single fields, which gets more complicated).
Firewire cameras most often offer a better image quality
and thus ease the tracking a lot.
Hope that helps,
