If you have the coin I would recommend a decent GPS/G Senor/HD recorder. But a cheap $50 special will get you out of trouble if need be. Just remember to make sure the date and time is always correct.

Re:


The reason I wanna go HD quality because I want to use it for off-road and road driving as well, so having good quality video clips is important for me to share online. O sort want to kill 2 birds with one stone with this purchase instead of buying a dedicated off-road camera and the black box one.

I'll have it with me on the Woolgoolga trip so afterwards you will be able to see what it does when I post them into the trip report.

Re: Black Box Car Camera Recorder


I've been using the $35 In Car DVR from an eBay store.

Do a search for "In Car DVR" and you'll see many up for sale.

Audio and video recording - basically VGA quality but quite OK for Day and Night basic recording of your journeys. Quality is such that Number plate characters not quite clear until very close.

I Love mine! Starts and stops with Car on/off. Takes up to 32Gb sd cards with continuous recording in 5, 10 or 15 Min blocks. (card full then earliest recording deleted to make room). Can take still 5Mpixel shots - has Infrared LED's for night recording including Motion Detect (good for when parked) and as I said records audio as well (good for verifying chats with parking bozos and various other annoying people.)

Re: Black Box Car Camera Recorder


Ended-up buying a Full HD 1080 in-car DVR blackbox camera today and drove all the way to Hornsby to pick it up from the seller who turned out to be a nice Russian fellow, so we had plenty of time to chat about all the different in-car DVR cameras, including the copies emoticon

For $120 bucks (including a 32GB micro SD card) he highly recommended this one and said it was very popular seller. This one doesn't have a GPS or G-sensor, so it would only record, display the date and time (bit not the location). I didn't need the GPS recording, but this camera comes with it as an option for an additional $35 bucks.

The specs of the camera I got are as follows:

I have tested it today and I am extremely happy with the video quality and sharpness of the video as well as the easy way to navigate around the setting. The video output files are QuickTime movie files, so they are very easy to work with.

The camera is small enough to sit just behind the rear view mirror and not attract too much attention. I just need to run the 12v cigarette lighter cable through the windscreen lining and bring it down to the 12v plug I have in the centre glovebox. Won't have time to do that before the trip on Friday, so the 12v cable will be visible.

The camera starts recording as soon as it senses 12v power coming in or if the motion sensor setting is enabled, it will start recording as soon as it detecs any motion.

Here are some screen-shots of the camera in action:

Re: Black Box Car Camera Recorder


Excellent clarity.

The only number plate I care about is the one a couple of feet off my bumper and about to hit me, so a 20 meter number plate resolution range is superfluous to me. 5 metres is adequate.

As is in-camera GPS . I have a GPS for that.

I look forward to seeing the videos of the next trip from that camera.

That may sway me to take the leap to install one on the Snowstorm Beast.

Re:


The in-camera GPS function is not to guide you or show you the way, it is there as further proof of where the footage is taken and can also be used for tracking purposes.

I will indeed be using at the Woolggolga trip. Well, it will be "on" automatically LOL emoticon
