Anyone knows of a device that can send an HDMI signal to the ground. Most up to date DSLR cameras now have a HDMI output and not an AV output anymore. One can use a converter to change the HDMI to AV but that adds another 220 grams of weight and the AV signal is not very good.
Sending and streaming HD via a afordable video sender is not yet possible because you cannot get a high enough refresh rate (1080p is not the only variable) with the Gopro you can send SD via a standard sender while it records to the memory card in full HD.
Yes, the GoPro would be fine, if it did not have a fisheye effect, now it is a NoGo.
FYI, most screw in lens on a gopro will require some sort of glue... (we used similar had to glue the lens on to keep them in focus).
Sending and streaming HD is completly possible,only thing is,it is not affordable(at least not for me)
for affordable version i posted a link before and here it is again http://www.armatosvideo.com/apmhd-wirelesslivehdvideocameratransmis... you will only need to tweak the antenas to make it work at longer range(200m+,this is no good for FPV,but for everything else it is).Problem is,you still did not specified for what you will need this;is it for FPV,is it for HD signal,live broadcasting or is it just for monitoring...
Problem with GoPro1 fisheye can be solved if you change the lens and put some from sunex or similar(google it).on GoPro 2 you can choose different modes so problem is not that big
if you want to buy normal video link use 1.3 Ghz from Lawmate (better than 5.8Ghz on wich you will have complite black out in case of signal loss,1.3 will only have "snow"and picture still viewable).If you plan to use it om multirotor with delicate electronics i sugest do not use anything stronger than 8oo mW bcs so much power will interfear with your electronics............
and than,one nice day in the future you maybe able to have something like this,best multirotor in the world http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcokEkwFmE0
price?100 000 $++ :-)
Hi Em Bru
We have a Skyjib 8 plus Photohigher gymbal with retracts & 360 pan and we want to take good photographs and video from the air, maybe even with a Red Scarlet (if it can handle the weight). We don't want to broadcast, we want to have a monitor on the ground that gives us a very clear picture. So, by the time we take a picture or video we know approximately how it would look when the craft is back on the ground. The camera will do the recording but we must be able to know what we shot and not just a hope and see.
Thanks for your input
Than it is easy....Lawmate 1.3 Ghz 800mW,and if you use ArduCopter FC buy yourself this http://diydrones.ning.com/profiles/blogs/minimosd-meets-arducam-osd... and if you use Canon Eos camera (5DmarkII or 60D for example) you will be able to control the camera from the ground.I strongly sugesest not to put expensive red scarlet until you are very good pilot....sometimes good lenses are more important than camera.....
So, where can one buy this Lawmate, hope it gives a very clear AV (composite) picture and where can one buy the
I don't find it on the JD Drones website
Lawmate 1.2Ghz 500mW AV Transmitter http://www.readymaderc.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&a...
500mV have new electonics compared to 1000mW...
