I did a side-by-side comparison with my EV800's modded with the ProDVR against the Fatshark Dominator V3 DVR. Both recorded at 640x480 30fps.

The Eachine colors are not as saturated but it's not bad. I was able to color correct both so they looked the same color-wise in Premiere but did not color correct at all for this comparison video (for obvious reasons).

So which one do you like?
