I have a tripod set up and a very nice HD video camera. Only problem is it is meant for sports use and has a somewhat wide angle lens, but big deal. I would rather use that than take a performance hit unless I am actually trying to get specific details across.
It works far better to do it that way when you have a resolution of 5760x1080. Videos recorded at that aspect ratio suck.
And for that matter, nearly all screen cap software takes a large amount of cpu time, even on the pc I have now I see a drop in framerate just broadcasting, let alone actively saving video. My last setup, a severely overclocked Q6600, would drop from 60 to 25-30 fps in nearly every game I was recording.
