KX131 and low resolution goggles Question

Recommended Posts

I have the KX-131 camera with 320 horizontal lines of resolution. The video goggles I have are I-Theatre and 230,000 pixels resolution.

Question: given the limitations of the camera that I own, is there anything to be gained by moving up to high resolution goggles?

Yes, for several reasons.

First, the lines of resolution that you refer to are virtual lines.

All video cameras in a given format have the same number of scan lines.

therefore goggles that can display more of the actual scan lines will provide

a better image, even with an inexpensive camera.

A higher contrast ratio will also provide a better image.

Perhaps even more important than the pixel count is the field of view.

A wider field of view is important for FPV and is dependant on the optics

rather than the electronics.

I'll add that low resolution goggles have big pixels you can clearly distinguish. With high resolution ones that's one less thing to see :)

The KX131 is supposed to be 380 lines too.
