The lack of explanation of the settings in FPV cameras often leaves users wondering what they actually do, and how to achieve the desired camera performance. In this post I will try to explain the different settings in FPV cameras and how they affect image quality.
The Runcam Sparrow 2 Pro FPV camera is basically the original Sparrow 2 with a full size M12 lens and enhanced housing for better protection. In this review we will take a close look and check out the image quality compared to the previous version.
The Micro Swift 3 FPV Camera is using a standard size M12 lens for better image quality, as well as the latest UART camera control technology! In this review we will take a close look at the new features and improvements.
The lens on FPV camera can often get loosened due to vibration or crashes. In this tutorial I will show you how to focus FPV camera lens in a few simple steps.
FPV Camera Lens makes a huge difference to image quality. This article covers some of the most significant aspects of FPV camera lenses when it comes to maintaining and choosing one.
The Runcam Camera Control Adapter converts the OSD pin on an FPV camera to a UART interface. This allows you to use the UART port on the flight controller for Camera Control without the need for additional resistor and capacitor.
Very annoyingly the Foxeer and Caddx FPV cameras don’t have a OSD ground pin. Especially the cable that comes with it have male connectors on both ends making it nearly useless for me. In order to use the camera and play with the settings at the same time, I had to make a DIY cable that breaks out the OSD signal and GND.
Spoiler alert: the new Foxeer Monster Pro FPV camera has really good looking image! It’s a mini size CMOS 1200TVL camera and I’ve heard they making a micro version too.
Onboard DVR is a way to record FPV videos in the best possible quality without all the signal interference from your VTX, by installing a DVR in your mini quad or any RC model really.
Camera Control is a great feature that allows you to change FPV camera settings including brightness and contrast. It replaces the need for a joystick controller that you need to connect to the back of an FPV camera. Now you are given another camera control option via UART rather than the OSD pin.
Runcam is releasing yet another FPV camera, this time, the Micro Sparrow V2! I am actually quite excited about this one because it seems to provide nearly the same performance as the Foxeer Predator, but the extra image settings make it a better camera.
FPV Camera Control is a new feature in Betaflight flight controllers that allows you to access your camera setting menu using your radio transmitter sticks.
