In car camera/ Dash camera question for all of you.



Why or why would you not have in dash camera.

Im talking about camera that records your driving, recently been on the news regarding that scam people do, I think most of you heard about it. Very popular in Russia, China ETC.

What you think advantages vs disadvantages?

Discuss!

For those who dont know what im talking about.

Waiting for Randy to do the group buy on the blackvue

only negative thing is the technology does not make the camera super small yet. I have concerns leaving it on the car all the time as some curious vandal will break the window and rip it off to see what it is.

Not concerned about battery drain.

If it had built in bluetooth that would be the best.

i recently purchased an extremely cheap alternative on ebay. its a keychain covert spycam. I velcro'd this to a sunglasses case and onto my sun visor. It can record up to 2.5hrs with the 8gb mini sd card in there. It also takes jpeg images with the push of a button. I usually turn it on when I start driving, I don't do 2 hrs of driving on a regular day so its good for small local commutes. Its a DVR so the file format is avi and can playback on my cell phone on the fly. I can delete, modify etc.. had it for a month now and pretty content.
