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.

Hi, I'm a dog trainer who knows next to nothing about electronics - but I'm interested in buying or putting together a camera that I can use in one of two ways:

1) To take video or, preferably, still shots when it detects a lack of motion rather than the presence of motion or...

2) That can be very easily remotely triggered to take still shots.

The camera needs to be relatively small, sturdy and battery-operated as I plan to attach it to my dog. Hauling a computer with me is something I don't want to do unless I absolutely have to as we'll be hiking together in steep, hilly, wooded areas. He's a great dog and won't go far if I don't want him to, so working distance in a steep, wooded area doesn't have to be huge. 100 yards would be fine though more would be nice.

I have only rudimentary electronics skills and would prefer to buy rather than kluge. I also don't have an unlimited budget.
