Talos Color Mini Camera 1/3" CCD 3.7mm Conical Pinhole Lens Good for a Starter?

I was looking around for a camera for my starter FPV setup until I get good then I'll throw my good camera on. It's going to be on a multi-rotor quad with a 900mhz 200mW setup.

Does anyone know anything about this camera? Is it ok for starting out? I don't know much about this, so I would be pleased if someone could throw in their 2 cents before I commit and spend my $40 (that's with $8 shipping) on it.

Specs:

For the same price you can get a Sony 600tvl ccd board camera, which I think would be a better camera. Check out the fpv videos on youtube that use the 600tvl, and compare those videos with 420tvl and you will see a difference.
