I will phil. I tested both cameras on 9 different types of TVs with exact same results. B/W, B/W, B/W....
My fear is that the ones you sent me (SMD crystal) are outputting black & white video, but the ones you showed in the TTL Camera tutorial (the ones w/ a shiny metal can crystal) output color video for some reason. can you verify that you are getting color on the TTL cameras that have a white SMD crystal? Also can you test it on this display
as well as this one
? (I need that display so that I can bring it to places with no outlet..)
