Camera Support

With the new software version 4.2.0 there is a newer option for using camera at the Root. I didn't use a camera before.

Can you (CEL) tell me / us something about supported cameras.

How to use with Root? Is it Plug&Play?

Hello, Pete,

Thank you very much for the hint.

However, the question remains open for me which alternative USB cameras can be used. The only reference everywhere is to the Logitech C920 and "...that many USB cameras do not work well on the Raspberry Pi."
So again the question to Robox, if there are alternative, well working, USB cameras and which ones would be.
It seems that Robox has already tested cameras and found out that some of them do not work well, it would be nice if they were shared here.
