    Are you happy with your camera? My camera was 35€, or about 55$ and yours are 120$.

    Maybe there is no shortcut? One get one's moneys worth, or what do you think?

    I am unhappy about this:
    - the contrast. If the sky is bright the ground is just a black siluette. Useless in most cases.
    - the colors are not good. In normal daylight the threes are orange and not green.
    - resolution is a bit low

    Edit:
    Eeeh. I think I see my misstake now... I probably have a CMOS camera and not a CCD...

    From what I've learned; if it does not explicitly say "CCD" don't bother. It's c**p.
    I've just bought this item.
    I'll keep you posted

    I am afraid that you are correct... That's why this forum is so important. I'd love for someone to say that a certain camera has perfect quality. Isn't that a sign too? That no one has said that?

    But; if he is correct 65$ is a good price and it fits the hole I've already made.

    Either way I will be able to tell you guys,

    CCD and CMOS comparison



    I just got my 120 degrees CCD camera and made some comparisons

    The CCD has better colors, less noise, and better resolution. These pictures are however taken off my TV screen so this is just an indication.

    What I do not know is how easily it is blinded. To avoid blinding effects I will have to turn the camera down a bit anyway.

    How are those ones that go around the license plate? Specifically the boyo brand?

    I've just replaced my CMOS camera with the CCD above.

    Comparison
    - better colours. Its nice with green trees instead of constant autumn
    - better resolution.
    - The CCD is 120 degrees, but left corners are black leaving a rounded left edge...
    - More sensitive. I get better quality at night. (See below)
    - I believe the dynamics are better, and that the camera is not blinded by a bright sky, but I am not sure. I've tilted the camera towards ground a bit and that could be part of the explanation,
    - when looking straight at the sun its a black spot on the CMOS camera. On the CCD it leaves a vertical bright line. This also happens as lower intensity than the CMOS camera. Even reflections in windows, and car headlights can give that effect. If the light is really bright the whole screen!
