At the workshop, the recommended resolution was medium for the cameras, but, I don't know if this is recommended by everyone. What are your opinions?

It depends on what you are doing. For simple blob tracking low resolution worked for me and greatly improves framerate for more accurate tracking.

I agree.

I agree with you too. For simple, blob-tracking (like just looking for a random color blob), it would be better for low resolution. A medium is made for is you are looking for either a certain size blob or small blobs. High resolution is the best for looking for majorly specific sizes or locations.

My personal opinion would be to run low resolution myself because of the lack of depth sensitivity in the camera anyway.

I think for some kinds of tracking where extreme precision could be necessary it might be beneficial to go to high resolution.

High resolution means drop in FPS and that may actually cause more problems than it solves.

Framerate only matters if you are doing continuous tracking though. If you were just looking to find something and no where it was you wouldn't necessarily need more than 1 or 2 images to do it.

True, but I would do continuous tracking even for that short span of time.
