Recently geeks.com had a special on a digital mini-hd video cam for $30. At that price I decided to pick one up to see if I could get some flying video. Next I needed a way to mount it. I found a neat little device called a "Clampette" for about $15.
Yesterday I flew the pattern a couple times to see if the cam would work out. Unfortunately as is common with CCD devices the prop shows up, in this case as a series of flickering lines.
Is anyone aware of other affordable miniature video cams where this isn't a problem?
Here's a link to the video: http://www.ericmarsh.info/Flying_Wit...e_Pattern.html It may look a little odd at times because the camera was not mounted perfectly perpendicularly.
I've attached photos of the cam and Clampette.
