Another Camera Thread

I know there are lots of these but I was wondering what y'all thought of this guy? Camera
For $18 I don't know if I can pass it up. I know it is black and white but I think for intro I might be able to live with that.

There are lots of cheap color board cameras on eBay. I haven't used any of them, but if you verify that they at least come with a cable and work on the voltage you require, you should be in good shape. There was a thread about a cheap camera a day or two ago on eBay that might be worth looking at as a first camera. Jut look back a few posts.

This one


Edit: I just noticed there are none remaining. But the point stands

Edit again: Found another listing

Thank you. I really want to get into this but being a college student and only working part time it is hard to afford a hobby like this. Good thing is, once I get the stuff, I don't HAVE to pay any more unless I screw up.

If I get one, will do. Now that I know I can get a camera for cheap, though, I got to start shopping for video transmitters and receivers.

Well, if it REALLY is a CX161... those were some of the first well-known FPV cameras - about 6 years back. They were discontinued around there, so maybe these are really old stocks, hence the low price. They were good though.
