Does anyone know what the light sensitivity for this camera is? Or has anyone done a low light check with it?

You can see clear video in low light environment, and the camera adapt to light change quickly, you can check another review from this link: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=2591161
The reviewer go from outdoor to indoor, then under his son's bunk bed, he said "I had full, clear video the whole time".

With less than 60ms latency analog video output. our camera has the fastest response on the market resulting in quicker reaction time, making for faster and safer flying.
You say 60ms analog latency is the best we could get?

Haha you must be kidding. All the normal pcb cams (without recording) have much less latency. The TBS ZeroZero has less than 1ms from lense to screen (at least thats what they say). And thats the latency normal PCB cams always have.

Even 60ms for HD video out wouldnt be that new as the GoPro can do that already. But wait, no HD out on your cam???

That's overstated and untrue Rangarid, granted 60ms isn't particularly fast but...
One of the best cameras around for low latency has always been the PZ0420/CC1333 Sony Superhad II CCD at 30ms, the 800tvl Effio-V CCD camera as an example is around 75ms
CMOS board cams are often worse than CCD, inparticular HD cams such as the GoPro/Mobius etc, so for an HD cam 60ms isn't bad though very fast FPV mini quad racers might find it a bit too much

I agree that if compared to the mobius or other HD recording cams it is faster, but it is not compared to analog cams. That is what i wanted to say, as they say their analog output is the fastest. And that is just not true.

It's fastest among HD camera.
If anything we said wrong, welcome to correct us, we don't mean to talk big.
We did compare test with those camera we know, it's possible we made mistake.
