Vistaquest VQ3005

Discussion in 'Digital Point & Shoot Camera' started by Frederik Ramm, Aug 28, 2007.

  1. Folks,

    I need a very simple and, most importantly, very lightweight camera (in
    the 50 grams range, max.) which I want to attach to a small R/C helicopter
    to take aerial pictures.

    After some searching I found the "VistaQuest VQ3005" which seems just ideal
    for my purpose (data sheet at www.vistaquestusa.com). However I cannot find
    any place to sell this beast to me (problem being I'm in Germany!). There
    seem to be only two online retailers, one of them WalMart who don't ship
    outside the US, and the other SurplusSourcing.com who said they won't ship
    because my paypal address was "not confirmed", whatever that means. eBay has
    nothing either.

    Does anybody have any idea how I could get hold of this camera? Maybe
    someone's willing to buy one at Wal-Mart and put it on eBay, I promise I'll
    buy it and of course pay all shipping etc. ,-)

    Bye
    Frederik

    I can't find anywhere here in the UK selling that model, but would a
    "Phillips Thumbcam DMVC1300K" suffice? Only 1.3 MP and slightly heavier,
    but at least there do seem to be a few still available this side of the
    Atlantic. Sadly, such cameras seem to have fallen out of favour with
    manufacturers. There are still a few models with VGA (640x480 pixels)
    resolution, but they are seldom better than toys.

    You could try looking in second-hand shops or markets.

    Another possibility is to make up something using the miniature cameras
    sold for 'security' or 'spying'.
