../_images/cam_v100r2lens.jpg
  • Pros

    • Affordable price
    • No additional interface hardware is necessary (USB2.0 interface)
    • Embedded IR illumination (No additional IR light is necessary)
  • Cons

    • Relatively slow speed (100fps)
  • Note

    • Focal length of the genuine lens (f=4.5mm or 5.5mm) is too short for gaze tracking. M12-mout lens with longer focal length (e.g. 25mm) is necessary.
    • Camera should be placed near participant’s face (less than 15cm-20cm from eye) to prevent bright pupil.

OptiTrack V120slim (USB2.0)

../_images/cam_v120slim.jpg
Pros
  • Relatively affordable price (Although camera unit is not so expensive, IR illumination and CS-mount lens are necessary)
  • No additional interface hardware is necessary (USB2.0 interface)
Cons
  • IR illumination and CS-mount lens are necessary
Note
  • 800nm IR pass filter option is highly recommended.
