Boscam Pan/Tilt Camera Mount for HD19 ExplorerHD FPV Video Camera
I've just got and bench tested my camera and it works very well, it does everything as advertised..
The lens fitted to it has a built in IR cut filter, if replaced with an other lens the picture in daylight is very pink due to IR overloading it.
So if fitting another lens then fit one with a built in IR cut filter to preserve the colour balance.
It has the standard thread to suit MVC and PCB style camera lenses
I also tested it at night using IR lighting and using a lens without the IR cut filter and found the low light sensitivity to be poor even with IR lighting.
I concluded that it is only worth using in daylight but then it must have an IR cut filter lens.
Thank you v_max. (I cannot reply directly due to status limitations). Anyway, I couldn't wait for your answer so I tried to power the camera through the usb port with 3S battery. Based on the smell it was not a good idea. I can turn on the camera but it won't record nor take pictures anymore. I cannot connect it to external video over the usb. It seems I fried it. Any idea where in Europe it might be fixed? Or if it is worth fixing at all?
Thanks for the support.
sorry to hear... have no idea where you can fix it... the question is what is really dead inside... if it's only USB side power regulator then it probably possible to fix...
But if processor or camera matrix dead it's not worth fixing
Hello, what is the maximum power over usb connector I can use? Can I power the camera over usb with 3S lipo? And use the video from the multifunction cable at the same time? I broke one power pin on the mulitfunction connector, now I am looking for a solution. Thank you.
USB is 5v only. So your options are ecternal 5v ubec on USB port.. or connect 7-12v to 5pin micro jst....
If you broke wire on connection cable it's easy to replace with precrimped wire... If you broke pin on camera connector then you can open camera case and repalce whole connector... or solder wire to connector pad inside camera
Very resistant to crashes.
I can use for FPV and Transmission Audio and Video plus power punch her **radio on and off the video recording and (or) photographs.
It is small and has very little drag.
Fucniona with 3S and 2S batteries also.
Consumes very little power.
Picture quality is fantastic.
Comparing Mobius to HD19 ... I let you decide who is the winner.
Personally the only plus on HD19 it is that it is very very strong. I had a huge crash on my tricopter, and by Boscam got a crack on the lens, some ***p on the case ... but it is still fully functional, and still doing good video after replace the lens (new lens are few $ only)
I would conclude that the Boscam has better resolution and optics, although you would not detect this in Fatshark's FPV (or even Headplay 800x600 FPV). For posting videos to youtube though, there is a slight advantage. The Mobius has better color saturation, which may appear more pleasing, although many video editors can adjust for this or compensate for videos you post. The Mobius looks lighter, the Boscam looks more robust. The Boscam has an available Pan-Tilt gimbal, I still think both are great choices.
To tell the truth boscam gimbal is awfull...
Assembled it, give it a try and place on shelf... very bad idea was to use large tooth gears on pan, especially with 2:1 ratio which makes pan nonsmooth
recieved mine today and gotta say its a gem , comes with a ton of leads some reading material and a box , its a small camera perfect for FPV , but how to mount thats going to be the tricky bit , but id buy this again no worries
its easy to use will be interesting to see if any waterproof go pro like cases come out for it or a quality small pan tilt set up thats suitable for the camera mounts , though i will knock something up p 0 p
Great camera at a very affordable price! Come with the latest 1.13 firmware. I think that the manufacturer can make it a REAL best seller if they put some effort in releasing a better firmware.

Amazing little camera. I simply unplugged my board camera and plugged-in the boscam. Check your wiring, I did and it happened to be the same. The picture quality is great and it is light and small. I used it as my FPV camera and the lens is great for that. Best purchase!

Excellent quality picture for the money.
Note that it will run off 5 volts on the USB socket but not off the other socket.
It will happily run direct off a 3S LiPo.
