Looking for CCD Camera

Recommended Posts

I've outgrown my CMOS camera and am looking to move up to CCD. If possible I'd like to stick with 5V, but the only cams I've found so far are exspensive. Price is definately a factor here, I'm on a tight budget. A low lux rating isn't that important, I usually fly in bright sunlight anyway. I'll go for new, used, whatever I can find. Like I said 5V would be great, but isn't absolutely necessary, I could build up a 12V pack I guess.

So far the only real option I've seen are the $39 cameras at Supercircuits, but are there any other cheap cameras out there? Anybody got any used ones?

Personally, I wouldn't bother buying a low cost CCD camera. There is more to good performance than just the CCD sensor. The DSP hardware that is used in the decent models really makes a difference. And good glass optics count too. Perhaps you could wait for a used CX161 or KX131 to show up here or on ebay. Both are 5V and worth their weight in gold.
