What's the best solution these days, given that "Of course we have a camera that will work!" has turned into "You have $200 to make this happen." [more inside]

webcam for sports capture

Recommend me a video camera to use capturing sports action. I'm looking for a USB camera for use outside that can send live capture to a Win7 machine. It should have a wide auto-focus, software to instantly review the feed. I've reviewed previous Mefi posts, and can't decide whether a web cam, stand-alone Hd camcorder, or something like a Flip or helmet cam would be suitable. Right now the Contour or GoPro are considerations, but I'm unsure of the software side. Price is not really important, but I dont' want to spend $500.

Selling a camera... on the streets!

Dear Chicagoans, I need to sell a nice camera tomorrow somewhere in the area. I'm a minor, so if I need to be 18+ to sell then my question is moot, but either way- if I theoretically wanted to bring in a camera and sell it on the spot, where and how do I do such a thing?

Damn you old technology

Back again. In a previous question I asked about Sony 8mm videotapes in the Philadelphia area. Sadly the price for converting Sony HG120 tape, Sony 8mm MP120 tapes and Sony Video8 MP60 tapes is too expensive for the 3 or 4 tapes I have. I'd rather not pay $150 when the tapes might be mostly blank, have crap on them, or otherwise not be worth spending $120 on. Any ideas? Should I try to buy a cheap camera for these? Anybody want to lend their for a few hours? [more inside]

Why are microscope lenses so small?

Why are microscope lenses small and camera lenses large? Surely having large lenses on microscopes would let you gather more light from the thing you're trying to examine and give you a clearer picture.
