...... so started this thread to discuss this camera....

ommadawn seems to be the first to have one of these camera's in his hands, and he has done some test flights....

Wow, that looks great.

Okay, it does not like vibrations, but thats for most of the CMOS Cams.

PS.: the landings are really scary.

Mine should be in the mail, the first person to ask me whether it is noisy gets a lifetime ban though

Cheers,

If you look at ommadawn's vids (linked in the first post) you can see it has a time/date stamp in the lower right corner.

The vids seem to be the onboard recording, not the live out.

My cam has not get here yet, so I don't know if you can "turn off" all the icons/symbols.

Looks like something I could use. Need to make a Awacs pod to put it in.

I dont think the date/time can be deselected. Theres not a lot you can do with the settings. However the characters are is quite unobtrusive.
The day I flew was cool and overcast, so not sure about how it handles bright sunlight/ground transitions.

This is possible, There is a square in the top left of the screen that tells you that is is recording. however that said I don't think that this will cause a problem with looking at the osd.
