[PD] OT: video camera for detection

I am shopping for a camera or an installation. :)

Detection (pix_blob, etc.) requires a camera with a pretty high
resolution, and I also need to be able to disable auto gain control
(AGC) and auto iris control (AIC). I guess disabling the auto white
balance is a good idea too. I looked at matco.com, which has pretty
afordable cameras. Their SX-920C-HR looks pretty good. It has 480 TV
lines, which gives more than 720x480 pixels. See
http://matco.com/pro-camera-1.htm and click on "Technical details"
under that part number to see the little datasheet.

I am afraid I cannot disable AGC, though at least I can use a lens
which has no auto iris. Is that correct ? Do you guys think there is a
way I can disable that auto iris control ? Otherwise, anyone has a
camera to suggest ? Thanks a lot !
