Both Runcam and Foxeer have two nano size cameras on the market that boast features compatible to full size cameras, both are also around a similar price point so it is logical to compare them directly head to head to see which one you will prefer. Let takes a closer look

TL:DR

At the end of the day, the best FPV camera largely boils down to pilot preference. And without trying to sound like I am trying to avoid making a decision, the fact is both of these cameras are pretty impressive for something so small. Long gone are the days of having to compromise on quality when flying nano cameras. If I have to choose, I would go for the Predator V4 Nano as the image and colours are more natural to me.

Comparison Video

As you can see in the video, both cameras are very similar (mainly because the use a similar sensor). Sometimes runcam looks better, other times predator looks better. For me the most noticeable difference is at night (towards the end of the video). here you can see the Predator Nano give you a considerably nicer image with less noise, better dynamic range and colours. So based on this I would say the nano wins for me.

Hopefully this quick article has helped you make up your mind about which camera to get. For me both will be great, so I would pick up whichever is cheaper at the time.
