Question about Webcams and color depth...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Currently looking for a webcam that supports 8 bit color depth to use with some pattern recognition software at school, and I was wondering do most webcams that have 24 bit listed as their color depth also support 8 bit and 16 bit? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm still fuzzy on color depth in general.

i would double check the specs but in general whatever the color depth of a camera is set at is what it records. now if you need it to be 8bit and your camera is 24 bit then you can convert the footage in post unless this software uses the live webcam footage. generally cameras do not support changing the color depth as a setting in the menu... this is usually the case. i would make sure that the cameras you purchase meet the requirements suggested by the software. if it indicates 8 bit then youre good. 8 bit color depth is basic webcam quality and nothing super fancy.
