Camera situation
« on: October 17, 2012, 01:19:00 PM »
Hi again! Before I buy this I would like some opinions and if anybody knows of a good way to hook it up to a laptop, that would be awesome. You can google this and its also on ebay Wireless Receiver & Small spy Camera 4 LED Vision Color. I will be trying to mount this on my robot.

You can use the CTRL key and the C key simultaneously and then the CTRL and P keys to give the URL.

Also more details on what your use case is would be great. Night camera? Image processing? Long-term spying on squirrels? Etc.

Lol More of a spy type use. I want it to feed live video and sound directly to my laptop but Ive done some more research and alot of people use LCD screens, not sure if it gives sound but it does give video. Here are three videos on youtube Ive found so far-  RC FPV Kit HobbyKing 900MHZ 200mW Tutorial by sfabiom, RC FPV Kit 1.2GHz 800mW Wireless Camera Transmitter Receiver by  INVISIBLE315, Interactive Wireless Camera for small robots by  SniperPIKACHU.

I own a few wireless video systems, including a HObbyKing one you mentioned. For hooking up to a laptop, you need something to convert A/V signals into something your computer can use. I like the EasyCap, just plug in A/V signal and hook it to your computer via USB. Then use VLC media player to record and stream the video live

Thanks! Whats your take on just buying a receiver, transmitter, and camera, then hooking the receiver to the camera and the transmitter to an LCD screen? Do you think that would be any good?

I think you got receiver and transmitter mixed up there, but yeah that would be good! I just like the ability to record so I use my laptop.
