Attention: RC-CAM.com will be closing down August 2021.

The RC-Cam.com forum was the very first online community dedicated to the advancement of wireless video cameras on radio controlled (R/C) models. This is now called "FPV" (First Person View). We are proud of the contributions that our members have made to the FPV hobby.

We've seen significant changes over the last twenty years. Initially there were a lot of eager R/C hobbyist that built their own video systems. Allowing these creative individuals to share their work was the purpose of this site. Now the FPV market is flooded with low cost systems; Sadly DiY FPV video projects are now rarely discussed.

RC-CAM.com (main site and forum) will be closing down August 2021. This is being announced now (March 2021) so that everyone has time to download any information that is important to them. After the site is shutdown the information will no longer be available here.

We appreciate every member's involvement with advancing the FPV hobby. It is indeed sad to say goodbye to all our online friends. Be safe and stay healthy.

  1. Are they the exact same camera or are there different models that look exactly the same? Because, when I googled it, I've seen big differences in the stated FOV. DPCAV lists 50 degrees while some other sites list 62 degrees, and I saw someone say 40 degrees on a forum. Strangely, all the other specs listed are exactly the same. I'm still interested in this cam but I hope the differences in listed FOV are just embellishments and not actually different cams. Thanks
  2. http://www.dpcav.com/xcart/product.php?productid=16617&cat=0&page=1 I hope this is the right place to post this, but I'm wondering about this little camera. On paper, it seems to be perfect. It's cheap, tiny, low voltage, low current, with about the highest resolution a standard def cam can offer. So, what's the catch? What's the video quality like? Is there a prominent jello effect? Thanks
  3. I was following what you were saying in your first post until you got to "Analogue to Digital Conversion (ADC) rate", then everything everyone said after that point was lost on me. I don't think understanding this stuff will happen anytime soon. To be honest, I'm just looking for something reasonably priced with a "buy it now" button. The only reason I commented was because something about REDIMAGE's post seemed strange to me. I was hoping REDIMAGE would reply with some information on how he/she managed to check up on all of this information. No big deal. Thanks
  4. I've been following this thread as well because I've been interested in HD wireless video transmission for a while. But I must admit, much of what's in this thread is beyond the scope of my knowledge base. You cross-referenced all of that information? Could you provide some links? You must have had a pretty robust knowledge base before you even looked at this thread. Most of this thread was, to me, like a fly buzzing in my ear.
  5. VideoRedo is the best. Are you saying you think it's possible to connect a Canopus converter to the DN-60 to create a portable solid state DV recorder?
  6. I understand. Which frequency would you recommend for a newbie at this time, assuming I buy from a reputable manufacturer? Basically, here's the situation as I'm seeing it. 900 MHz to 1.3 GHz Pros: - theoretical advantage based on the frequency alone - 1.3 GHz may be less crowded than the 900 MHz and 1.2 GHz Cons: - outdated hardware may negate any theoretical advantage 2.4 GHz Pros: - better, newer hardware than the lower frequencies Cons: - frequency is overused to the point of being ridiculous 5.8 GHz Pros: - better, newer hardware tha
  7. Good luck Viper. If you find something, let me know. I've been looking for a good DVR for probably around 4 years now. The one I've been interested in for a long time now is the Chasecam DVR100. I've been waiting for the price to go down. It started around $350 then it went up to $550 and stayed there for a few years. I figured it would go down anytime now. Guess what, the price increased again by $100. If I had only bought a few when they first came out, I could have used them for a few years and still sold them with a huge profit margin.
  8. Of course I'm interested, but I didn't want this thread to revolve around a concept that's relatively easy to understand and is discussed in every thread I've ever read on the topic. Just trying to steer the discussion toward issues I don't understand. Obviously, it's one of the most important issues. Very helpful. Thank you. What about 1.3 GHz? I don't remember seeing much gear using that frequency even a few years ago. So, I would presume that it's relatively new compared to 900 MHz, 1.2 GHz, and 2.4 GHz. It's also a relatively low frequency, so less multipathing, as you
  9. I've been trying to figure this out for some time, to no avail. I'm looking for a primer on the pros and cons of higher vs. lower frequencies (900MHz, 1.2GHz, 1.3GHz, 2.4GHz, 5.8GHz) for video transmission, while not considering the issue of environmental interference (e.g. wi-fi, phones, etc.). That's not to say that I'm not interested in interference, but I'm not interested in a discussion of which frequencies have the most gear using that frequency. What I would be interested in knowing is if there is something INHERENT in a particular frequency that makes it either more susceptible or less
