Tales of a Dashcam
#1
£400 Roadhawk or £14.99 ebay?

I would guess you get somewhere near what you pay for but have you guys who have one got any pro's or cons for your chosen price range.

I'm going to get one soon, basically to capture any potential crash for cash scam-theres been a few recent ones around these parts-dare I say it-foreigners.
Yo av give me ze viplasch I sooyo-simples!

And I want a new toy to play with.

Ive looked at the ebay ones-by the time youre paying £40-£60 you get full HD quality footage, night vision and a fairly neat and compact form.

We have professional CCTV at work that can barely distinguish colours let alone reg no's so HD would seem to be the way to go
I drive mostly in darkness in GMT months and it must be descreet to avoid being stolen itself,so these seem to fit the bill

I could go up to £100 for a semi-proper one but it would have to be really worth it.
Or buy a series of cheap ones until I get the type that suits.The hand me downs could serve the rear window and use the power socket in the back.

Got a 1080p hd dvr, c/w I.R. LEDs for night vision ( night vision is b&w ) type with flip down screen one myself. Cheap on ebay , between £20ish to around £40. Does the job. Must confess I want Crash Catcher one as it records interior and outside at same time, and gets great reviews. http://www.crashcatcher.co.uk and get 10% insurance discount.

There is a (UK) reviewer of car cams on youtube called techmoan.

e.g http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X16kiyDtTms

I want one. But really it needs GPS for accurate speed and location.
