Best FPV Camera?

So I am picking up a DragonLink next month (First time FPV!), and was wondering, what is the best camera for the live video feed? I have a GoPro 2 already, and was wondering if I can use that? And if not, which camera would you guys reccomend?

Thanks!

I think it is probably the TBS69

http://team-blacksheep.com/products/prod:tbs69

not a cheap cam, though, close to two hundred dollars

best value is the SuperHAD600, which seems to be used by 1/2 of us now. forty five dollars.

You can use the Gopro, but it is an inferior camera for live video.

I also would suggest a WDR600 or SN505. I have both and they are awesome

+1. TBS69 = top notch
SONY 600 TVL = great + cheap, better than my $130 700TVL cam

Are these the best for all around fpv for fixed wing specific? I'd like to know what's best for multirotors/fixed wing and also night flying.

thanks

I use the SuperHAD600 on both

BTW I thinkt he 'WDR600' is the same camera as the 'SuperHAD600' - both are Sony 1/3 with WDR(Wide dynamic range mode). aka pz0420

Night flying is a whole other issue. You can get away with many of the above cameras, since they usually have a B&W night mode. But there are better performing night cameras, and also special low light lenses which really improve the experience depending on your locations. The 540tvl cam is supposed to be a good one - just got mine in the mail with a low light lens. Hope to try it this week.
