I am looking for a high speed usb webcam.

The plan is to rotate the camera at about 20-30 revolutions per second, the problem is this requires me to have a framerate of about 120fps (depending on the lense...) and secondary the exposure time needs to be really short for the image not to be blurred (and still have a decent quality).

At the moment i am using a 120fps USB-Webcam by ELP but the results are not satisfiying (the image is used by a computer-vision algorithm which needs a more or less sharp image).

Is there any camera available which can achieve the desired results (and is quite small and lightweight). Money is not our primary concern.

With a 1.4 gigapixel-per-second throughput, you can capture stunning high-speed video at up to 1280x1024 resolution. Frame rate ranges from 1,057fps at full resolution, up to 21,500fps at minimum resolution.​ but the price is bit absurd.

These are the frame rates

I would contact the professional computer vision folks, such as Cognex, and maybe National Instruments. Your camera requirements are quite challenging for off-the-shelf USB cameras which are not designed to support high-speed automation.
