2.4GHz Wireless NTSC Outdoor Camera

Replacement: None. We do not have a replacement for this camera. This page is for reference only.

This water resistant outdoor 2.4GHz camera needs only a 12VDC for operation. We decided to carry them simply because of their versatility and ease of use. The camera goes on your robot/aerial/teddy bear platform and the receiver connects to any device that has an RCA input (TVs, video cards, etc.). Power up the camera, tune the receiver a bit and you'll be looking at a live color image with audio of whatever the camera is pointing at.

Retail package comes with everything shown: Camera, power adapters for camera (12V) and receiver (12V), RCA cable, antenna, and compact receiver.

****640mW * Transmission Distance: 250 meters line of sight

  • How much does it weigh? This is my biggest concern.

  • How much does it weigh?

  • Hey guys, quick question; what are the red/yellow jacks on the camera for?

    • following 'composite', probably.. yellow = video, red = audio (right channel, but it's not stereo.. that would be the missing third, white = left channel).

  • Do you know approximately how much current the camera draws?

  • Please I've a question: Is the transmitter is built in?

    • I also would like to know that, cause in the picture there seem to be a RCA cable connected to the camera and I don't understand why if it is a wireless camera...

  • I have a question: Does the camera come with internal batteries or it must be connected to an adapter all the time? It is not clear.
    Thanks !

    • It needs to be connected to an external power source, it doesn't have an internal power source

  • Judging by the illumination and resolution I'm guessing this is a CMOS camera. Oh and CCD cameras are definetly better for most apps. (CMOS is cheaper).

  • is multichannel, so can put more cameras in the same receiver. how many?,,, please answer the question. never answer nothing here.

  • Can you hook this up to a micrcontroler? How many bits does it output?

    • It is analogue signal so you wont need a microcontroller (no bits)... Unless you are going to control Pan & Tilt with servos or some other coolness.
      Another example of analogue vs. digital for cost effectiveness.
      (analogue - 1, digital - 1010 1010)

  • Is there any way we could get some wireless cameras with PLL tuning so they don't need to be retuned as it warms up, etc.?

  • The Google video for this is pretty entertaining. :-)

  • Cmos or CCD? I don't like Cmos cameras they just don't offer that good of video. Was looking at video security cameras the other day and none of the packages would state whether they were Cmos or CCD. Sales person didn't know either. To me there is a big difference in the quality of the video between the two.
