Run Cams support team is excellent. I had an issue with a camera and they quickly replaced the bad camera. I'm very happy with their products. They definitely have a customer for life. All my camera purchases for my drones will be runcam from now on.

Great image quality and very strong in front of hard impacts recived flying with my quadcopter. This last version doesn't has any weak point.

Perfect FPV camera, strong and video quality.
All my quads are mounted.
On our team Acrobaix it's the firts option.

Good quality, better color for day/ night use, advisable for FPV use

I really enjoy flying with the runcam swift. Never let's me down.

Best camera - first to use the 4 locking points so they don't move

I love Runcam products, this is a very good quality camera

Very pleased with this camera, response is fast in high contrast area's. Its easy to mount and easy to configure. I chose the IR block version and the colours are true. I put this into a Eachine Racer to test prior to a 250 build, the difference between the original CMOS and new CCD is night and day, it makes it so much easier to fly.
I would highly recommend this camera (2.5mm lens).

Hands down one of the best FPV video cameras out there. Out of the box the setting were pretty much spot on.

I have been a long time user of many cameras for FPV use, Runcam has taken the lead on designing easy to use, (separate config cable) to positions available for plugs. This truly adds versatility and ease of use in tight spaces. Thank you Runcam, Looking to test out the runcam eagle 16:9 soon. cheers, neil

Have a cheap board camera 900tvl and an Aomway 700tvl cmos ( lots of jello) this is by far the best.
Crisp clear picture on my FS Attitude v3, small and light.
In fact I liked it so much I just ordered another for my second quad.
Also have Runcam2 awesome.
Keep up the good work Runcam.

Best Of The best :) low latency , awsome video .

Après avoir essayer une demi douzaine de caméra made in China à prix attractif, je me suis décidé à commander la swift à la lecture de la fiche technique et je ne suis pas déçu.
Un packaging très complet avec toute la connectique et différent support. La configuration paramétrable à souhait et très facile d'accès est un plus. Mais la qualité est surtout au rendez-vous. Pas de latence, très bonne gestion des changements de luminosité sont vraiment des points importants en FPV qui faisaient défauts sur mes anciens modèles. Je ne regrette pas mon investissement et pense même en recommander.

The swift is a superb FPV camera. It delivers a slightly better picture than the venerable HS1177. BUT you do need to make some mods to ensure it will last a long time. Open the back of the camera and make sure you epoxy the camera sensor to the board, otherwise it will break off the circuit board in a crash. Also put a dab of hot glue on the crystal (looks like a tiny capacitor) to stabilise it and ensure it doesn't vibrate and break off. If you do that you will have the best FPV camera on the market!

A truly stunning camera tinyin nature huge in performance , it sits in the Dji s900 u can't see it with out looking for it ! The picture quality from this is far better than every other I've tried , the clarity of view allows my to use the s900 for professional work being able to see exactly where the s900 is paramount and this camera never fails to amaze me

Muy buena cámara. Excelente la sujección. Muy buena compra

The RC Swift is a great cam, comes with multiple mounting accessories, has a easy OSD menu (cable included), picture quality is the best I have had on my FS attitude V2's, and the switch to B&W in low light makes night flights easy to achieve..

I tried a couple of cheep board cameras from web sites like Banggod and Gearbest but was not satisfied. I just put this one on my 250 racer and noticed the difference right away. Much clearer picture and adjusts quickly for different light conditions. I used the little mount which clamps to the lock nut on the lens and it worked quite well.

Really a good fpv cam. It's much like the hs1177 but with a quality feel to it..

Excellent performing Sony 600-line camera in a small case. Good mounting options. Very nice to have the OSD on a separate socket. I'm using the wide-angle lens which is sharp and bright. The only issue I have is that this lens comes to focus with very little screw length inside the camera case so you can't use the locking collar supplied. I used hot-glue to lock it. I also noted the vibration of the board inside the case, gave a shaky video, encouraged me to balance my props and motors a lot better!! Run-Cam are easy to deal with, nice people I think; and ship quickly - recommended.

Good camera, but needs few improvements.
Few improvements, that are needed:
1) the mount is great, but the backcover is attached with only 2 screws in corners which makes it play a bit;
2) the mainboard with sensor doesn't sit firmly inside the camera case with backcover`s screw fully tightened. This can give you shaky video. To solve it I had to put some tape on the mainboard, so now it sits tightly and also helps with backcover play.
Hope that helps if you have similar problem. Maybe it is just first batch issue.

Not much to review. Worked as advertised. I watched Bruce's review before buying and I would have to say it's pretty good with a few exceptions. Basically, the hanging mount is better than he stats. I'm not sure if he knew (or didn't thing to look at) the ring on the camera is movable. If you want more of an angle, just screw it closer to the lens which allows you more freedom. Additionally, I've crashed a few times and the mount isn't as fickle as he seems to think and certainly better than what others offer. So while I'd say it's not perfect, it is certainly better than the other camera's I've used so far.

Who can better review stuff than Bruce? Here is the link.
I personally love the Runcams both the swift and the sky versions. They are tough and handle light really well. As critical as Bruce can be, he sure likes the quality of this thing too ;)
