This tiny camera packs a big punch! With full 1080p60 resolution and a CS lens the HD29 offers high end video quality in a small form factor. This camera is the number one choice for filming from the cockpit.
The HD29 is the highest quality camera available for its size while being robust enough for cockpit mounting in rotorcraft and fixed wing aircraft.
The HD29 offers the best picture quality of any small-form-factor cameras on the market. The HD29 features the highest quality chipsets available with a Sony Exmor sensor, latest generation NextChip DSP, and production quality Gennum SDI transmitter. Video is output via the SMPTE 424M 3G-SDI or 292M HD-SDI standards.
Housed in a machined aluminum enclosure the internal solid-state PCBs are mounted directly to the CS mount creating a ridged plane from the lens to the image sensor. Locking power and BNC connections allow the HD29 to be mounted in high-vibration environments.
A powerful DSP allows users to adjust settings such as; resolution and frame rate, shutter speed, white balance, back-light compensation, wide dynamic range, gain level, noise reduction, and flip, mirror, or rotate the image. A wide range of standard CS mount lenses allows users to choose nearly any field of view.
The HD29 Micro HD Box Camera has the option of lenses from 135 degree wide angle to 20 degree zoom. Lenses are a fixed focal length CS mount type with an adjustable focus. Stock focal lengths include: 2.8mm, 3.6mm, 4.0mm, 6.0mm, 8.0mm, 12mm, and 16mm. Additional focal lengths and vari-focal lenses are available as special order options.
The HD29 also has the option of cable type for camera power; Integrated HRS which features a Hirose LF series locking power connector for high vibration applications, and Thumb-Screw Multi-Pin which features a Molex multi-pin cable secured with thumb lock screws for less demanding applications. Both versions feature a 3GHz BNC for video transmission.
The HD29 features a standard 1/4″-20 mounted boss on the bottom of the camera for use with standard camera mounts. The camera does have the ability to mirror or rotate the image using the on-screen menu allowing the camera to be “top mounted”.
A number of mounting options are available for the HD29, each using the standard 1/4″-20 stud.
|Big Mite – is a cast aluminum collar, machined ball, and spud. The spud can be bolted directly to a solid surface using a #8 to 1/4″ flat machine screw. The collar is then clamped to the spud and locks the ball in place. The Big Mite is a larger version of the MiniMite designed to support larger cameras in high vibration environments.
|Mini Mite – is a cast aluminum collar, machined ball, spud, and extension with a flat base option. The spud can be bolted directly to a solid surface using a #4 to #10 flat machine screw. The collar is then clamped to the spud and locks the ball in place. Alternatively the spud can be affixed to the flat base which can be attached to a solid surface using 4 x #4 or #6 screws. The Mini Mite is designed for smaller cameras like the HD29, HD19, or HD23.
|Ultra-Clamp Mount – is a cast aluminum frame with a poly-carbonate injection molded adjustment attachment. This mount is clamped to a secure bar or flat with a hand screw. Additionally the top may be removed and mounted directly to any surface using a 1/4″-20 screw. This mount can hold any size Rugged Video camera.
|Locking Suction Mount – Is an injection molded poly-carbonate mount with the same aluminum collar and ball as the Big Mite. The suction mount features a wide cup that can attach to any smooth, hard, clean surface. The suction cup is secured with a lever that creates additional vacuum within the cup. This mount can hold any Rugged Video camera, but should only be used inside the cockpit for portable installations. The mount is secured with air-pressure and thus should be tethered to avoid injury should a change in pressure occur, or the mount was to lose pressure.
|Pedestal Mount – is a cast aluminum collar, machined ball, and formed steel flat base. The base can be attached directly to a solid surface using 3 x #4 screws. The ball is secured with friction by using a winged screw. The pedestal is designed for smaller cameras like the HD29, HD19, or HD23.
