I do not have any prior experience with FPV goggles (never owned one), but now I am involved in a project where I need to connect a video or FPV glasses to an external camera through a wired connection and watch the camera view on the goggles.
It is important that it is connected to an external camera because I need to achieve that point of view. A person must be able to see his own hands through the camera if he points the camera towards the hands! This is a must.
I have been looking through the internet trying to find some potential glasses that I can test on, and I have found the following:
Since the goggles and the video camera will always be within a close range, I am at the moment considering a wired connection. I assumed that wired should provide with better quality video compared to wireless. Is that correct? If not, there is absolutely no reason for me to go wired, and I'll go wireless.
For now, I consider wired connection, therefore the goggles must have AV or HDMI input that I could plug my camera into, which is my main concern.
Few questions I have regarding this project
Wired vs Wireless communication between the goggles and the camera? Is it true that using wireless will reduce the preview video quality?
AV or HDMI? I was planning to use an FPV camera such as this, and connect it to my goggles through an AV cable. However, I am concerned about the video quality. Will the HDMI provide better quality video? In that case, I must consider glasses that have hdmi input and must find a small camera that I would be able to conveniently mount on a stick (planning to use something like a selfie stick).
The price is not the biggest problem here. I am willing to spend extra to achieve very good quality video preview through the goggles.
I am hoping to receive some help from people who know about FPV (2D 3D video) goggles, FPV cameras and AV/HDMI. Appreciate any help
