So are you looking for a camera that is remote control compatible? What sort of camera, i.e. DSLR or point and shoot? If you are looking for a DSLR, essentially anything from Canon and Sony to Nikon have a remote control option on them, but I'm pretty sure that the remote has to be purchased separately.
I'm not rich. I could spend at most £200 ($309). If the camera can shoot HD video, I'll be in heaven. If I can write software that will control it via USB, then I don't need the remote
But since those odds are tiny (i doubt camera manufacturers provide SDK), then I will need a consumer model that accept a wireless remote control. Any recommendations? Thanks.
