So I recently tried out a new dashcam. As it was free (due to a few arguments to be had on ebay) I gave it a whirl and can report the following, without the negative impact of saying I have bought a cheapo cam, when in fact I have been given one!
So, I bought this initially: http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1497.l2649
It was advertised as having rear cam, remote control, HD and all that jazz, and it disappointed on most levels, so having complained I got my money back!
The specs on paper look good. But, the camera is poor quality and is quite blurry. You can read signs and lamposts, as long as you are within about 1 - 2 feet of them.
It claims the following:
Full 720P recording - check the quality on the linked video for yourself!
Loop Recording - This will be tested enroute home tonight I suspect
G Sensor - Not yet tested, but I will bounce it off the floor and see how it reacts.
Motion Detection - It has got this, but its not great, I was driving down the motorway and it stopped recording because there was no movement in front of me, seems that the trees around me just blur into one!
So Heres the video:
I will also later try and post the same footage but taken from my current camera the GS8000L to compare the difference!
