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.



wireless video output types (IEEE/firewire?)


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've been thinking of getting a wireless video camera/receiver combo like the eyecam or similar. From what I can tell these units only offer a composite out from their receivers. MY problem is that I have a JVC miniDV camcorder. The only input I can use to record this camera is through an ieee/firewire cable. Is there any way to convert a composite cable to an ieee/firewire cable? i.e. take the composite out, convert it to ieee, then input it into the camera? Alternatively, is there a receiver that outputs digitally through ieee?

Thanks alot.

Yes, but these things are so expensive you would be better off just buying another recorder that can do a lot more. Expect a good $300.

Never seen such a thing.
