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

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.
