$25 Laptop Cardbus Video Display And Capture

Recommended Posts

Here is a $25 PCMCIA video display and capture card. I saw it listed on a vendor of rc helicopter ariel photography equipment for $110. I have no idea how well it works, but at the price it definitely seems worth looking into.

I like the idea of a bigger display out in the field, as well as not having the extra step of transfer the video from my camera to my pc to store and share on the internet.

Happy New Year!

I used to have a USB TV tuner box which captures and records real time video. But it has a very serious delay problems and sometimes dropouts occur if 'bit rate' is set to high. It may be due to the slow processor of my notebook. I don't recommend that you use a capture card to reduce the steps of transferring videos to computer.

I just ordered one, and will let you know how well it captures video. The helicopter photography website that I found it on said that it worked very well and they used it for pretty high-end applications.

It seems that buying a little memory stick video camera, even on ebay, could set people back ~$200. I just thought it was a super inexpensive way to capture video.

I agree that it would not be useful for realtime flying because of time delays.
