Do you want to enjoy the 3D-OSD feature with your NerdCam3D but are unable to find the necessary ADC4OSD extension board? Here comes the relief - you can simply build it on your own using a small and inexpensive COTS device called "PCF8591 AD/DA Converter Module". Although it is not so small and handy like the original ADC4OSD it fits exactly the same purpose. The converter module is available at many places under that name, for example here, or here, or here. There may be also never versions...

It is quite obvious that video editing of the raw FPV footage goes along with loss of quality due to de- and re-compression inside the video editing software. In addition the conversion of the video files at YouTube even further reduces quality. I am somewhat able to fight against that with tricky conversion steps using AVISYNTH. However, from time to time the question arises whether a genuine piece of footage (directly form the ground DVR) is available. Therefore I will provide two vesions of...

Some more videos with the NerdCam3D attached to a brushless gimbal and mounted on top of my Axial Wraith. This time I have used my new 2.2mm lenses, which performed very well in my opinion. I'll make them the new default lenses for the upcoming new camera batch. This is how it looks like:

For ground operation on RC-cars a gimbal is higly beneficial - especially for 3D-FPV. This video shows how the camera can be integrated onto the roof of an Axial Wraith.

RC-crawling in the park with a NerdCam3D on the roof. Enjoy this video on your 16:9 Smart TV using the YouTube app. This video is probably not very well suited for 4:3 aspect ratio video goggles. Music: "Pure drive" by Marc C. Nichols Productions - available on premiumbeat.com.

The is the Low'n'Slow video you might alread know from my YouTube chanel. However, this video is made for 16:9 3D-capable Smart TV sets. Enjoy!

The NerdCam3D can be a diva with respect to power supply - you might have made this experience already. Therefore I would like to show you in this post how to create a tiny, lightweight and dependable DCDC converter for the camera using a commercially available converter module - the LDO03C-005W05. This device is a new high density, open frame, non-isolated converter for space sensitive applications. It has a size of only 15.5mm x 9.4mm x 8mm and a weight of 1.7g. The module features a wide...

Live 3D-FPV footage with NerdCam3D on a Hammerhead Nano frame. Enjoy this video on your 16:9 3D-capable Smart-TV. I finally figured out how to convert the 4:3 raw footage - recorded with a FPV Japan DVR - into 16:9 HD-video using AviSynth, MPEG Streamclip and iMovie. Note: This video is probably not very well suited for feeding 4:3 aspect ratio video goggles. The convergence setting of the stereoscopic OSD is a bit extreme for my taste, but this simply was the preference of the sUAS operator...
