outdoor web cam

I am looking to purchase a web cam that I can use in an outdoor environment. specifically, I have a panasonic cf-30 toughbook that I use in my profession of emergency services (police, fire, ems). I am looking for a usb or wireless camera that I can use with my computer to take real time video of emergency operations, and send via the internet to a remote location. i.e. responding to the scene of a hazardous materials incident, set up my computer and web cam, and then send real time video to an emergency operations center. I tried this actual scenario recently, but the standard web cam I have would not work. due to the bright outdoor environment, the picture was completely washed out. the video settings could not be adjusted to allow this to work. additionally, I am looking for one that is not too expensive. any ideas? please advise, and thank you!!
