For my current project (Night Vision Goggles) I am going to use a micro camera (Similar to this [http://www.themicrocamera.com/]) which says it has composite video output. The only problem is that I can't find very small LCD or LED displays which require composite video input. I thought about using rearview back up camera which already come with displays, but those require 12v, which is more than I'm planning on using. My question is, where can I find micro/mini LCD or LED displays which can be used to stream video directly from a camera through a composite video cable?
I'm not sure if I've come to the right place or not, so please let me know if other, more relevant to my question, forums exist. Thanks!

Thread: Video Output for Mini Camera
Your link doesn't work because you included the bracket at the end. I doubt that that $19.95 camera is capable of streaming anything.
Well, it sure seems like it ought to be able to stream, since it has a USB connection and specifically provides a DL link to "webcam drivers" in the instructions.
However, I'm sorry to say, toxomanduke, that it says NOWHERE in the instructions about having any Composite out, nor does it show any composite connections on the 360 image of the device. So I think you are out of luck there, unless you wanted to hook it up to a laptop via the "webcam/USB" connection and use the laptop's screen as your "display" (not likely since you wanted really small).
I'm interested in the device, though - lots of ideas for its use...
I should have specified. That camera exactly is not the one I'm going to use. Those cameras are called "808" cameras, and there are a bunch of different versions. The version I will use (#3 or #16v2) does have composite out via a usb cable. www.chucklohr.com is the ultimate website for these cameras. and sorry about the broken link. Once again, my problem is that I can't find an LCD smaller then 2" which has composite out. I also considered a 0.96" OLED display by 4d Systems, but I'm not familiar with the pinout for that module, and most importantly, each display module will cost me $40 a pop.
Please leave me any suggestions and thanks in advance.
Found this link in another thread: http://www.aquavu.com/Accessories/Aqua-Vu-Mini-DVR. Maybe you might be interested in it (though it seems more expensive if you are only using it for monitoring capability).
Here's a few small monitors that I believe support composite inputs. The smallest ones are at the bottom of the page. If you need cameras, this company also has a good selection with compostite outputs.
This seems a bit of an ambitious project to try to accomplish for a very low cost. But good luck.
