having a maaaajor clear out at my elderly aunties house at the moment. came across a dash cam very similar to this one
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6LED-2-5-HD-C ... SwQXZZ2MBb

it looks exactly the same basically.

are they any good?

what are the modern reasonably affordable cam's like in comparison? ie like about £50 sorta mark.

or are decent ones available for less?

gonna bang this one in my van and see what it goes like. if its no good i can relegate it to my dads van and buy a better one

What can I say... that particular dashcam is Sh1te.

It's exactly the same as my first dashcam which got binned... I'll see if I can find the footage.

video quality from that dashcam

That has to be the worst one ever. It looks fairly reasonable in daylight, but come slightly dark it can't see much. Yes I know it has IR LEDs for night vision, but they bounce off the windscreen blinding it.
Put it in the bin and buy a good one.

That said, I had problems with my expensive nextbase dash cam, so I got the mid priced one, and that works fine and has given me no trouble.

This is the one I use

https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/332262858673?c ... 426&crdt=0

:dunno: about the seller though. 1080 P and I did a review on you tube.

That one comes with a 16 GB micro card, most dashcams you have to buy a card separately.

The car park incident allowed me to track down the driver/car and claim back over £ 500 in repairs. so £80 odd squid well spent. :wink:

Yes, I know. But as I said its the nearest one to mine that I could find. Besides, fin could take the sd card out of the one he has and use that. But its up to him.
I am also NOT saying your one is better than mine, and I am also NOT saying my one is better than yours. I am saying both of ours are better than the one he has :-)
