A group of us (4 biology students) plan to underake some biological studies
(snails!) and need some way to film snails overnight. We're not very techy so
really need advice in this regard ...
If any of you have a moment, would you mind please offering your suggestions as to
how we could best go about this?
We considered webcams, but problems here might be:
(a) We'd need to get/download some recording software
(b) We've been told our computers wouldn't have the capacity to take a full 6-
8 hours of recording through a webcam? Do you know if this is correct?
Other options are:
Video cameras: We have 2 available, one is about 5 or so years old, the other
is a couple of years old and is an 'HD', can have USB sticks etc. attached.
Do you know whether video cameras generall would have the capacity to run for
6-8 hours non-stop (if plugged in to an electrical source)?
Any other suggestions as to what we could use to film for 6 to 8 hours?
Many thanks for your help :-)
