Vector: Color issue with Sony ccd PZ0420

The PZ0420 seems to be a very common an popular fpv-cam but my cam doesn`t display colors from the vector at all. Is the vector not compatibe with this cam or are there any settings in the cam that must be changed?

Benjamin,

We aren't aware of any compatibility issues with that camera. Is it set for PAL or NTSC? Can you open a support ticket on our website and provide a video or picture of the issue you are seeing?

Regards, John

I think you should try it with and without "Reverse color for PAL camera"
in the OSD Setup-> Display Hardware Settings.

"reverse color for pal" doesn`t change anything. I tried different monitors and different cam settings, the result is the same. It works with the Gopro3B AV Output, but not with the AV Output of both my PZ0420. The main colors, that should mix the different colors, seem to be "seperated", not mixed (overlayed).

Here are some Screenshots of my issue: I changes the number colors (red,
yellow, blue, green)

Hi Ben,
I'm using the same camera with the Vector and think its a great camera.

But I find it will quickly go to Black and White mode in low light conditions such as your example shots above.

My cameras is the NTSC version and I haven't selected the Reverse colors option.

If you take the camera outside in good light you should be able to see the Vector's colors with no problems.

No, the cam is not in Black an White Mode. I haven`t any color issues with my sony`s and monitors so far. Otherwise, the cam displays correct colors, but the Vecor colors are incorrect.

Hi Ben,
Sorry I couldn't see the color problem well from the screen shots.

So are you saying when you use the camera outside in good lighting conditions you still have the same color problems?

Yes. The cam colors are great but the vectors colors are messed up. Hmmm

I am attaching a video that demonstrates that with 3 different types of cam, the colors can change in relation to the setting suggested. The fact that low light colors do not match that is another matter if you try to remove the cam and view the video carrier of the vector, you will find that the colors disappear and you will see everything in black and white or shades of gray.

Hi Ben,
You may need to open a ticket with Eagletree for further assistance with this one.
Sorry I don't know what further to do.

I am having the exact same issue, rebooting the vector through interface brings up the colours perfectly.
Will try the beta firmware.

Do the vector color settings control the camera colors or the vector text colors?
Hue, brightness, etc.
