I have finally bought myself a dashcam and i am very pleased with my purchase. The camera is called Mobius ActionCam and it's a multifunction action cam, one of those function is being a dashcam and it does this rather well, infact it does it better than that anything else for the price. The camera cost £41 and it can be purchased here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mobius-ActionCam-Full-HD-Sports-Camera-1080P-30FPS-720P-60FPS-Pocket-Camcorder-/151071891306?pt=Camcorders_Professional_Video_Cameras&hash=item232c961f6a I highly recommend if anyone buying this camera purchase from the above link (Seller eletoponline365) The camera is made and sold by this specific seller from Hong Kong with the lowest price anywhere. (delivery takes 1 week) Lets get down to what this camera is and some of it's features. 1080p full HD recording 720p HD recording H.264AVC1 .MOV files Photo mode SD card slot upto 32GB Plug and play for windows Live TV out whilst recording Data transfer from camera 80mins real life recording on battery And much more although i will only mention features relevant to car cams as this camera can be hooked upto remote control planes, motorbikes etc, it's an action cam! and it looks like this This is what comes with the camera (Plus a multifunction USB, TV out adaptor cable not in photo) Here it what it looks like in person and how small it is, as you can see compared to my keyfob it is indeed a very small camera so is the mount. The Camera does not have a viewfinder like some of the other cameras others have chosen, i specifically went for a cam without a viewfinder for it's compact size and quality. Now i must admit at first i was worried setting up the camera would be difficult without a viewfinder although that is not a problem, the mobius actioncam can be used as a webcam therefore plugging it into your laptop will give you a view whilst setting up in the car but i am pleased to say that will not be necessary, the camera wide view is great any almost any position pointing straight will be perfect every time. I am truly impressed with the compact size of this unit! it's barely visible from outside of the car and wiring it up is simple, since the cam has no viewfinder, no settings can be changed via the camera itself, you have to connect it to your computer, download the software here http://www.mytempfiles.info/mobius/index.html and change whatever you need, out the box it will work just fine although for a car settings must be made for the best quality videos and auto start recording, the software is simple and it works, there is no drama no errors no bs, just plug it in, and run the software. I must stress to anyone thinking about this camera, it does not come with any mounts suitable for a car, hence the price, the mounts, and there are several available, all sold separately, there is a suction cup mount and a sticky back mount, i bought the sticky back mount for permanently fixing it to myself windscreen +plus it is slightly smaller than a suction cup mount. Mounts cost under £3 Suction cup http://www.ebay.com/itm/Car-Windshield-Suction-Cup-Mount-Holder-for-Mobius-Action-Sports-Camera-/181166005622?ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT Sticky back http://www.ebay.com/itm/Car-Windshield-Mini-Tape-Mount-Holder-for-Mobius-Action-Sports-Camera-/161054762107?ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT SD card fully tested and working in the mobius, compatible and and confirmed by Ben £9.99 http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/291166483317 Instructions on how to hard wire this dash cam can be found here http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/tutorials/article/229-dash-cam-hard-wiring-mobius-actioncam/ under the guides sections Links to parts for hard wiring below (Thanks to Higgsy) 3Meter DC 12V-24V to 5V 3A Right Angled 90 Degree Mini USB Power Converter Cable http://www.ebay.com/itm/130978719862 Mini Blade Fuse Piggyback Kit http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ADD-A-CIRCUIT-FUSE-TAP-PIGGYBACK-EXTRAFUSE-MINI-BLADE-TYPE-/251170199430?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3a7ae91786&clk_rvr_id=603448643401&afsrc=1 3A Mini Blade Fuse Set http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MINI-BLADE-CAR-FUSES-3A-4A-5A-7-5A-10A-15A-20A-25A-30A-5-OF-EACH-45-/190836262993?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2c6eba4851
FOCA posted a topic in General ChatWell i got myself a Samsung Freesat HD twin tuner hard drive recorder it has a 500gb hard drive, with the twin tuners i can record 2 channels simultaniously while watching a previous recorded programme It recieves all the Freesat channels including all the HD Freesat channels, and can record and playback on full HD 1080P Samsung is now one of the market leaders in AV and mobile phone etc technology This is one of the best of these boxes available and compares favorably with the Humax box and recieved a 5-star raiting from What -HI-FI and video This joins my 500gb Sony Freeview HD recorder which also has twin HD tuners and can record / playback in 1080p HD and also has a two hour buffer and can pause, rewind and record live TV, I have a Sony 1080p HD tv that also recieves freesat HD, and can record onto my 2TB hard-drive the Sony freeview box can also connect to the 2TB hard-drive, to backup The Sony box integrates nicely with the Sony tv, the box remote control works the tv, and the box and tv "talk" to each other via HDMI (for example if you switch the tv off, the box also switches off) Between the Freeview HD and Freesat HD channels i get all available free channels on both platforms (there are some on one and not the other) And i can record 5 simultanious channels between the tv and two boxes, and watch 2 of them simultaniously (picture in picture) i can record series with a total of 3TB (approx 3000mb) of storage Im getting rid of all my old AV gear (its mostly obsolete now) i may also get a Blue-ray recorder, (i have a Samsung Blu-ray player for now) mostly i will get rid of all the standard- def stuff (PS - i don't like 3D so i plan to keep my present setup for a while) And the mest thing about it - there is no monthly subscription- All the Freesat/ Freeview/ HD channels are Free! i may post a list of all the Freesat/ HD And Freeview HD channels to see how they differ
