I will be updating this over the next few days with some examples, and other thoughts :) for Christmas, the wife bought me a GS8000L DashCam. I had dropped the hint a few times, and it seems that she picked up on the hint ;) I must say, to start with - I am glad that she got me it!
Whilst she hasn't told me the price she paid for it, I will put as much useful information together as possible :)
The price of this unit starts from £19.99 from Hing Kong, or if you want a local version, the price is £27.45.
Build quality feels very well put together. It doesn't feel cheap or 'plastic' but feels rather rugged!
Dusk / Night driving:
Excellent video quality. I took a few different video's but this one I find does it justice! plus, it also shows a complete douche who cut me up. (thanks for that Mini Cooper, X2 BCP, who seems to drive like a pratt :)
Functions: (main functions)
Camcorder, Camera, Playback mode.
1080 (Full HD) 1920x1080
720P 1280 x 780
Loop Recording (not really explored it yet)
Motion Detection - Cant say its really worth it. Specifically driving in night, it struggles to recognise that there is movement and so the filming stops mid way, so I disabled it. It seems that it only catches movement in the dark that is immediately in front of the car (few feet range)
Audio recording (On / Off)
Date / Time stamp imprint on the video (On / Off)
G Sensor (2G, 4G, 8G, Off)
Resolution Still trying to work out, there are many!
Sequence - Seems to be just a burst shot
I find the camera is excellent quality, but on its HD setting runs a very large file (as expected) so you would need a large memory card (class 10 would be best) to get the most out of it.
Overall, so far I am very impressed with the camera. and I think the quality of the video's speaks for itself, and for less than £30, its very good quality. The battery isnt the greatest, it does need to be plugged in to make sure that you get the best out of it.
I will provide feedback, but if anyone is interested, feel free to ask questions :)
