Welcome Again! In this post we will discuss about the main part of the whole Quadcopter/Multirotors system. Here we will learn about How to choose FPV Camera | Camera best for FPV First Person View. Before knowing about How to choose FPV Camera | Camera best for FPV First Person View you must know the basics of Quadcopters or UAV or Multirotors. As we are discussing about How to choose FPV Camera | Camera best for FPV First Person View so we must know about the system on which we want to implement it.
How to choose FPV Camera | Camera best for FPV First Person View
FPV stands for First Person View, which means a Quadcopter (UAV) can be controlled from pilot’s view point. The cameras which were originally designed only for surveillance purposes they can also be used for FPV. But a few things should be considered for selecting a camera for FPV.
The video quality is dependent upon the quality of the camera, no matter how much good quality video transmitter you are using.
Some of the factors upon which FPV camera quality depends:
CCD and CMOS
In FPV camera CCD works better than CMOS, whereas other cameras uses CMOS. CCD having many features like
- Less Jello
- Less noise compared to CMOS
- More light sensitivity
- Greater dynamic range
Whereas CCD cameras are much expensive compared to CMOS cameras. And CCD cameras consumes more power compared to CMOS cameras.
IR Block VS IR Sensitive
IR Block camera gives better color contrast for a image. However, this camera is good only while daylight is there. This does not give better resolution when light is dim.
IR Sensitive cameras are however gives better pictures both during day light as well as when light is dim. Whereas the color contrast is not so cool as compared to IR Block cameras, but the plus point is we can use this IR Sensitive camera when light is dim.
GoPro VS dedicated FPV Camera
If we use a GoPro camera instead FPV camera, no doubt weight and cost is decreased but the disadvantage include:
- Delay while recording
- If video recording stops, video feed also get loose.
