I own an original Microswift and really liked that camera a lot. When I heard about this, I pre-ordered one. Having the OSD so I can keep track of my battery pack voltage and flight time is worth the price of the camera alone. The pre-set camera settings are also a nice feature and you get the controller so you can adjust everything through your FPV goggles. I patch it through my TV set and I can make adjustments without having to put on and remove my goggles constantly. Great camera and great value. Going to buy a couple more for my other rc vehicles.

The image quality easily surpasses most CMOS cameras in its size and price range. If you fly FPV and have only used cheaper cameras (which I had), the difference is obvious. The OSD is also simple to setup and works as advertised. It's form factor is great for smaller builds and the mounting bracket is useful. My only criticism is the orange case; something more discreet like a black case would have been preferable.
Customer Service was also brilliant for sorting out an query I raised.

It's got it all. Small, lightweight, excellent quiality image, and built in voltage monitoring OSD.
Seriously, it's the best option out there.

I love my RunCam Micro 2s even more than my Micro 1s. The quality is about the same, but it's super nice have the presets and the OSD voltage. I'm using the presets currently, but not the voltage yet. I will soon, but I expect it to work just as well as the Swift 2 voltage OSD. I do wish the font size was a little smaller. But I bet there is a way to change the font, but I have to check.
Anyway, during the day, the quality of the image is exactly like that of the Swift and Swift 2. During night flying it's a tad bit noisier than the Swift 2, but the smaller camera makes it totally worth it.
The lens is great. Currently using the 2.1. Great for racing, and even though it's a bit wider than some freestylers use, it's still very good and pretty low distortion.
Definitely a winner. Currently have 1 Micro 1s and 3 Micro 2s and ordering a few more.

Runcam continues to show that they can take a great camera and make it even better with the Micro swift 2!
This new camera brings features that were wanted by the FPV community such as voltage read out,alarm and timer,as well as a great set of one touch preset settings, that make it simple to use for anyone and yet also enable the advanced user to make their own personal tweaked settings.
The Micro Swift 2 handles low light extremely well and covers a broad range of lighting conditions.
It does all this while retaining it's small micro size too.
Runcam did a great job clear down to the cable which enables you to upgrade from the original Micro swift to this second version with the greatest of ease.
Simply put the Micro Swift 2 is the very best Micro CCD camera on the market to date and it is a must have in your FPV arsenal! 5 Stars all the way!
