Watch out! I just nuked 1-post user "gear101" after receiving five different complaints over the course of about 20mins that he's sending PMs to people offering to sell gear. Seems pretty fishy! I'm sure he'll be back under a different name but with the same old game. Be careful! Thanks to everyone who let me know about this guy.

i just picked up 3 cameras on ebay myself yesterday for $30 which were guaranteed working. These seem a bit more iffy in regards to funcionality. Personally I would go for it..

now that i have my cameras.. i suppose I'll post for you all when I find them smile

Lars - do you have a database (or can we start a one on the wiki of camera models with genlock?)

do you just use an 1/8 to BNC to hook them directly up to the LZX?

BNC to RCA is a cable you can buy and will work with the upcoming CVI module.

But for vector rescanning and use without CVI.. I took a long 1/8 ad infinitium and jointed it with a bnc cable..
try to make the joint in the middle of a long-ish cable, and reinforce the joint area to try and stop it from flexing and breaking. one of my first vector cables broke.. but i repaired it and now they are all very nice and secure.

the kinda- kinda not awesome thing about these is that they run on 120v AC IEC connections

just found these bad boys too. doesnt come with power supply but they use 12 V DC or 24 V AC so that should be a quick trip to my 2nd hand electronics store

By all means, create one on the wiki, that's what it's for! smile
I plan to add more to the wiki soon personally, but I have been so busy this month. :(

Basically with genlock you want to see a picture confirming the two BNC inputs on the back of the camera! "Line lock" or "external sync" in the description can be misleading, because those do not mean the same as genlock.

That's the way to do it for now. And you could feed the Color Encoder output to the Genlock input (or via a Video Distribution Amplifier if you need multiple outputs for more cameras).

Color/Triple Video Input is coming out in a few weeks, and with it you get three pairs of RCA inputs/Genlock outputs for when you want properly DC restored and terminated video inputs (much more ideal than just feeding directly in via an adapter cable.)

I hope nobody was getting serious about snagging that group of 7... because they're gone.

They'll be perfect for showing off my new modules. hyper hyper

I don't mind the AC power at all. In fact I prefer it. That way you stick the camera on a tripod and run 2 BNC cables and a power cable with an extension cord to the camera, and the camera can be as far away as you want without having to have a wall wart at the camera (and an extension cord anyways) or needing special lengths of double wire to run power.

One of the modules that I already have done (except the commercial metal faceplates) is the BlackBurst distribution Amp. Blackburst comes in the back from the genlock module and is amplified and then goes out the front to whatever external cameras, TBCs, or other devices that need it.



Thanks guys. This was perfect timing. And I promise I won't buy any other cameras out from under you for a while now. (probably need another half a dozen this summer)
