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.

I hope this is the right place to post this, but I'm wondering about this little camera. On paper, it seems to be perfect. It's cheap, tiny, low voltage, low current, with about the highest resolution a standard def cam can offer.

So, what's the catch? What's the video quality like? Is there a prominent jello effect?

Thanks

I've received good comments on it. The main catch is that it has a narrow FOV, so a micro servo for panning would be helpful. The camera is sold elsewhere as the FH10C, so you might find some FPV video examples if you search around the web.

It is a great camera if tiny size is extremely important. But if your model can accommodate a quality 30x30mm size CCD board camera then keep in mind that it would offer the ability to use a wider lens. Plus CCD will not have the jello effect issue to worry about.

Are they the exact same camera or are there different models that look exactly the same? Because, when I googled it, I've seen big differences in the stated FOV. DPCAV lists 50 degrees while some other sites list 62 degrees, and I saw someone say 40 degrees on a forum. Strangely, all the other specs listed are exactly the same.

I'm still interested in this cam but I hope the differences in listed FOV are just embellishments and not actually different cams.

Thanks

I suspect that they are all the same, but I cannot confirm that. On the tiny cameras the FOV tends to be an estimated/approximate value. To my eyes, the PAL version looks slightly wider than 50o and the NTSC version is slightly less than 50o. Maybe that is why there is a wide variety of published specs.
