Camera selection for image processing on Jetson Nano

Hey. I have a SAR drone project. I will do image processing with deep learning using yolov5n model on Jetson Nano. Does resolution provided by camera matter for detection? Since my model will probably convert the image before start processing it to something like 480p. I’m planning on using an action camera like gopro. Do I have to buy a 4k 30fps camera for it? My model runs around 20fps. Or would a 1080p 60fps image would be enough for it?

Unfortunately there’s no one-size-fits-all clear cut answer for this question. It depends on a number of constraints what the best tradeoff will be.

Could you say more about your project? What will your model be detecting?

Happy to dig in deeper once I have a bit better understanding of the context.
