Is the Caddx Polar Starlight HD FPV Camera the new gold standard for the DJI FPV system? It's looking that way, especially if you plan to fly during low lighting conditions. Polar features the mega starlight sensor. It's compatible with the DJI Vista and Air Unit modules and you can get it with or without the coaxial cable included. Have you tried it yet? Let me know what you think.

Fly low; Fly fast
Joshua Bardwell reviews this camera at
Caddx Polar vs. Runcam MIPI both are flawed but at least they're in stock (buy now or wait?) (13 min 4 sec)
.
I have the Nebula Nano and a Vista HD (with original, superb camera). I think the Nebula Nano is very poor. Since you cannot get the HD camera anymore, the Polar is really the only choice. Bardwell also discusses the Runcam Mipi, another option.

Just swapped out a Nebula Nano for this Polar. Plugging the camera connector onto the Vista was surgical in nature! But we got 'er done and it is indeed an upgrade IMO. The low light capabilities are especially impressive.

This video nicely compares the two DJI digital cameras that are currently available, the Polar and Runcam MIPI:
