Rechargeable 2.4Ghz Wireless Camera    Send article as PDF   
I brought this Hamy, 2.4Ghz Wireless 1/3 Sony CCD Rechargeable Camera to use with my Robots. It has a Sensitivity: of 0.5 Lux at F1.2, which makes it great for low-light conditions. As can bee seen from the Video made with just the light coming through a doorway  into a large room, its sensitivity is EXCELLENT!

I found the Camera & Receiver on eBay for US$93.00 & was assured I could get a refund if I wasn’t a 100% happy. There was an issue with posting from mainland China, so the eBayer resent it from Hong Kong without any prompting from me & it was kept informed of it’s progress.
