In Car Video Camera For Less Than £11

Recommended Posts

I saw this advert and thought I would give it a try:

At less than £11 I wasn't expecting much. It arrived yesterday so I put in my car today. It comes with a 3m power lead so you can put it anywhere on the windscreen and run the cable and tuck it away and still reach the power socket. Its also got a rechargeable battery, screen suction mounting kit and a USB Lead.

I stuck in a 2gb SD card I had lying around and I was amazed at how good it is for the money. The sound isn't great but what do you expect for this price.

I have only used it on the second quality level 720 x 480 and it was OK. I haven't tried it at night yet. I also want try it on 1280x 960 but only having a 2gb card in there Im not sure how much video it can take.

You can put it on a loop so it records individual files from 1 minute to 15 minutes long and when it comes to the end of the memory it automatically deletes the first file and replaces it with a new one.

It also starts recording as soon as you turn it on and will shut down automatically as well if there is no movement.

I bought one of these a couple of years back for about £20, it has been very temperamental as in the buttons only work when they want to, and it will stop itself for no reason. I guess you get what you pay for.

Got any video samples?

Not that I can upload.

Its not HD quality and if it lasts a few months I will be happy. You are not going to make a movie with it so it shouldn't take a lot of abuse as you only have to hit the power button and not even that when you use the power lead.

The problem with some of these cheap dash cams is the video quality is so bad you sometimes can't even read number plates. You can get a Mobius for about £40 and that's all the dash cam most people will ever need.
