Bill,

Regarding this:
Furthermore, I'll add the polymer coating to the back of the camera, just like I do with the RTF system. I think this would address IMRich's concern about the exposed electronics.
Tell me about this 'polymer coating', is it just a spray on coating, or is the camera sealed in a plastic case?

If I order a camera only (I have one of your 2.4G 600mw systems) will it come with the electronics protected?

I'm thinking of using this camera two ways:

1) As a viewfinder camera with a D70 or other DSLR

2) As a stand alone camera with a wide angle of view with the 2.4 GHz transmitter.

Hi Rich,

It is just a plastic coating to protect the circuit board from dust, moisture and inadvertent short circuits. It is very similar in consistency to "liquid electrical tape".

If you already own a BWAV transmitter, I'd be glad to seal the back for you.

Thanks,
Bill

Bill,

Thanks, I'll probably order one of these camera's soon.

I could probably use some of this coating for several things. Is it readily available (like at radio shack), or do I have to get it from a commercial vendor.

I was hoping for more of a plastic backed case similar to the lens mount as it would help to protect the electronics better than just a 'paint on' coating.

I agree 100% percent, and in this application it's not like a hard plastic back would add any appreciable weight.

I'll look around and see what I might come up with, but in the mean time head down to your local RS and ask them for some liquid electrical tape. If they don't have it check an electrical supply store or other electrical-hobbyist store. If you are near a Fry's I bet they'd have it.

Thanks Bill,

The east coast doesn't know what a Fry's is!

We're lucky to have radio shack, and they are slowly removing any 'do it yourself' type electronic items.

Let me know if you come up with a nice 'enclosure' for the camera. I think it would make it more appealing to others too.

PAL Anyone ?
I'm really keen to find a view finder camera just like what's been discussed in this forum but in the PAL format. Does anyone know of a similar spec PAL camera & where to find one?
Cheers
Chuck
