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.

Olympus Eye-Trek FMD-700 glasses for sale

I'am selling them only because I need a smaller base unit to be carried to a field.

That sure looks enormous! I only used some FMD200 ones, but they had the little A35-like controller, with many more settings though.

I got myself FMD-250W instead.

It has less effective resolution (by about 20%) but the controller is much more compact. I guess the controller is similar to FMD200. FMD-250W glasses have nice wide screen mode - anybody knows of wide screen format CCDs?

NO retirement yet, I am just starting to warm up from the winter ;) .

DV camcorders often have a good widescreen mode, I prefer that to 4/3 when filming so I bet that could be cool too for flying. But as for board cameras... never seen any :(

Maybe a very small camcorder? :huh: Could then use zoom too :P

Do you get bars on the sides or does it crop the top and bottom?

I now officially own a set of Sony PLM-S700 that I had borrowed from a friend this summer and flown with. Really great resolution, the only drawback being that huge power consumption... I use a 7-cell 3300mAh NiMH pack (have 2 of them), and one lasts a stunning 1h30 :blink:

But as the LCDs are 800x600 they display unscaled video in full 720x576 (a small black border is all around), which really makes a huge difference. I use them to watch DVD's as well, looks far better than a TV, more comparable to a beamer. Detail level is awesome. And for the price I've made a very good deal... :)

It adds black bars on the side for 4:3 format.

High resolution is nice, I agree. I am sill waiting for new products to appear,

it's amazing that nothing exciting came out of this (portable video glasses) industry in the last 3 years.

I wonder which would be the best glasses for a good start?

I did try the V490 von Innovatek ((CLICK ) and was NOT very impressed by its quallity. This was because of the low resolution of course, 320x240x3=230.000 pixels only.

So which would be the best and which would be the cheapes 640x480 glasses (same question for 800x600)? (I ask for exact product name and a circa price, since I can not find any apporate product here in germany available...)

Best greets,
