Looking for low light camera


Hello all!

Im looking for a very low light camera for night flight.
The lowest Lux I found is 0.0003 Lux and it isn't enught for my requirement:

Im looking for the lowest CCD high-res camera with the lowest lux value, Let's say about 0.00001 Lux or less.

My budget is up to 300$ for that kind of camera.

Thank you all.

The one you found is about as sensitive as they come right now in this price range. It won't see in total darkness, no camera can unless they are assisted with infrared or thermal imaging.

I'm starting to experiment with led flood lights on the plane to illuminate the ground in front of me kind of like headlights on a car but on a plane. That camera you mentioned is sensitive enough to pick up this kind of light.

You should visit the thread, "fpv audio/video goldmine" and pick up on the posts dated september and later.

Very interesting!

The problem is that 36 field of view. The lenses on thermal imaging devices are usually not made of glass and are not easily replaceable or modifed.

Nevertheless, I would love to have one. The video showed a pretty large camera. Okay for a car to carry, but pretty big for a plane.

There are tow small problems:
1. the Price tag: 2500$...
2. the weight: 360g (For my FOX is Ton).


So, there isn't a low light camera for my budget?
Any suggestion?

Thank you all!
