    I already have a DV camcorder and wanted to know if there are devices that you can use with it to captre footage from a distance away from the actual camcorder, wirelessly. I know I would need a receiever and a lense at the other end for capturing cos ive seen them at spy gadget sites, but there are so many options out there and some of them look really bad, can anyone help ?

    Attaching a camcorder to a wireless camera is pointless, all you need is a cheap VCR to record. The wireless cameras (the affordable ones, anyway) are exceedingly poor quality (think Youtube) and are meant for security mostly.


    Pay attention to resolution, and whether they come with a lens or whether the lens is an extra price. C-mount means that you have to buy a C-mount lens.
