I’m planning on mounting this to an F450 DJI Flamewheel frame, and then also to a DAYA 680 (should I use rail mounts?). The reason why I picked the Gitup camera was becuase I found out that the latest GoPros only have HD out, and so that was the best AV out sports cam I found find.
Let me know if you share my same thoughts or have other hardware ideas. Thank you!
Interesting camera. The Banggood page says “PWM for remote shutter control”, but when I read through the user manual on the Gitup site I see no mention of this. If you get the camera I’d like to know if you get PWM control working.
That’s encouraging. In the picture of the cable I see part of a label with “WM”, so hopefully that is PWM shutter. The cable on Banggood you originally linked looks like it’s different and doesn’t have a PWM plug. Please do report what you find.
The other thing that would be interesting to know is whether the camera provides continuous TV out for an FPV feed while in photo mode, or is the TV out only live when the camera is in video mode?
Have only done minor testing with the video so far to check out EZ-WifiBroadcast with an HDMI to csi converter for the PI and worked good. Did not try to record video or take pictures during this testing but do not see what recording mode you are in (video or photo) being an issue. Could freeze the video when taking pictures like regular digital cameras do while saving the image, but do not know.
I think the whole line of Firefly cameras operate about the same.
