Thread: Fatshark HD3's Camera Choices

    Fatshark HD3's Camera Choices

    I'm looking for advice on which cameras would be best suited for the Fatshark HD3's? I have the Pyro-Drone 16:9 1200TVL camera right now. I've got the HD3's on order found a good deal on the http://www.antigravitysports.com but now I want to make sure I take full advantage of these bad boys.


    What would you recommend as far as good camera options that are best suited for the HD3's? Styles of flying would be for Areal Photography and Freestyle Flying.

    There is really only two out there right now, runcam eagle and the foxeer 1200tvl/monster/everyone's rebrand of the same camera. I like the runcam better but the 1200 has lower latency so it's a toss up.

    The HD3 are only 16:9 when attached to a digital input (the HDMI). They are 4:3 when using analogue, so you don't want a runcam eagle or foxeer monster, you want a 4:3 like the Runcam Swift etc etc

    I'm pretty sure the runcam eagle has a 4:3 option and that's probably the best option.

    I just got into FPV about a week ago. It didn't take me long to zone in on the 4:3 eagle and it is a huge upgrade from the stock vortex 250 pro camera. The camera comes with a little joystick to control an OSD menu. Turning sharpness from auto to manual and then to zero or 1 almost completely eliminated the digitizing effect. For instant the horizontal wooden slats on houses no longer have lines running through them when they create diagonal lines across the screen.

    The colors are amazing on this thing. But still kind of grainy on my headplay se goggles (headplay hd and dominator v3's on the way). What is the optimum frequency or setup to reduce this FPV grainyness if you know what I mean. Or is it just always going to be there??? Don't get me wrong picture is great but I wan't to see CLOSER to what a gopro can produce. Is this possible??

    Eagle 4:3 is grainy with moving terrain. The 16:9 isn't that bad.

    You are saying the 4:3 is more grainy with moving terrain than the 16:9??

    Yes reviews seem to show that. 4:3 is more vibrant as well. They seem to be quite different
