Hello,

what camera is most suitible for FPV ROV underwater ?!

does an ordinary camera do well (after adding water protection ofcourse) ?

my budget is about 20 to 40 dollars

Many cheap underwater cameras use off the shelf video cameras. The trick is to make a waterproof housing with a water corrected lens in it that is cheap enough, not so easy.

Have a look at something like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WuJV3_SwLU

thanks for reply & the video

would one of these cameras be good enough, if i get suitible lens and make my housing ?

and would the view be really bad without the corrected lens ?!

Good enough for what? A pipeline survey? probably not. An ROV competition? Probably.
