R E C O R D E R........MEGA-LIST............( ground based video recorders )

The BEST quality recording is done on a good old fasioned Mini DV Camcorder.
With that in mind, here is a list of Camcorders with AV-IN.


I cant beleive most of you have NOTHING in your blogs yet.!
Its so easy, just drag your youtube/Vinmeo videos straight into your blog screen.
Then others can see what your setups look like.
To do your own blog, simply click your own username , and click (make new blog )
pop in a few photos of your planes, a video or two, easy as pie.

Double check for yourself that any camera you are interested in does AV IN.
PLEASE DON'T POST LINKS to other websites of lists.
Gets too hard surfing the web looking through other lists of 1,000's of cameras where 95% of cameras listed do NOT have AV IN.
btw, I'm no expert, so dont ask me questions, I just make the list, lol
And thanks in advance guys for added input, helps a lot.





NON Camera Based recorders
DV-500 mp4 portable SD recorder used by David22
EasyCap USB2 Average results depending on computer and software info
JXD 990 8GB (8GB aboard plus mini-SD slot) Pal & Ntsc, mp4 recording price per features $107usd used by npole
JXD 981 portable media player/recorder -ebay- used by aeroseb

BEST SOFTWARE for USB recorders
AmCap this capture software is the best,website and download here

VIDEO SPLITTERs
cheapest best - link to product ->info



THE CRAP LIST

Pinnacle PVT. average quality, never works on those important flights (wobby) has this, hates it.
Sandisk V-Mate. very poor quality
Kworld PlusTV composite capture is down right nasty (quote) lol






LIVE FPV FLIGHTS
BROADCAST (Guide and viewer)

Good job with the list, I have been searching for a good system to record my flights. Is there anything that uses a memory stick and built in monitor other than Archos ?

Very nice, I was thinking about getting a portable DVR (640x480 @ 30fps) but the think that I dont like is the mpeg4 compression, I think thats what kills the quality...

I will get a camcorder very soon!

Thanks for the list Wobby

Chances, yeah im with you on this one, I am so over the crap quality of mpeg4 compression and the likes, lol
As far as im concerned, ive yet to see anything that can record at say 24Mbit to SD card, HDD, etc..

Good old handicam kills all these fancy digital recorders on quality.

You can add another one, Sony, DCR-SR100. It has AV inputs and outputs. I use this for my recording. It has a hard drive and records at 9.6 mbit/sec on high quality mode. You'll have to find it used on ebay though.

Sad but true...all the latest recording gadgets and still DV camcorder is the best for recording quality IMO. I think I'd tried over 10 different recorders only to come full circle back to my old trusty Sony Handycam. I even picked-up a used newer Sony model on eBay for $150...can't beat that price and video quality unless we start going full HD

Very cool!

DCR-SR100 is in the list.

I have a DCR-SR80 here, so hopefully it will work also. I read somewhere that it does have input but can't seem to find it again.
