Do you have any samples from the camera online? I'd love to see how it looks, I'm fairly tempted to buy one!
TechMoan has loads of reviews of cameras.
Here's a 1080p HD car cam, about 100 euro.
It's a 20 minute review, so you might want to download it to view in 1080p , if your internet connection is not the best.
I have mine running up over the headlining, down behind the seats, under the center console and the wire pop out right at the socket.
You can't with the one I have as it runs on 5v and the ligher plug is a converter.
You can! look at my pics..its a hardwire cig lighter socket. I plugged in the original cig wire, taped and cable tied it and put it behind the dash..so it frees up my factory sig socket and no unsightly wires..
Heres one already soldered up..cut off the lighter end and hardwire it.
I think I've been more unlucky than Nissan Doctor. I've the same model but mine keeps freezing. At least once a day I have to pop out the battery & put it back in. Quality is fairly good for the price but it's a pain to have ro reset it all the time. Tried different/faster SD card but the same happens.
What class SD card are you using ?
Is that the same one puppet master linked too? Some images out of it for that price.
Also, is it possible to knock the mic off? I'm a bit of a sing-in-the-car kinda guy!!!
I get you, A hidden lighter socket is on my list of things to do. I thought you were talking about wiring the camera straight to the cars power.
Its the same type alright.
I'm not sure if you can turn off the mic but its probably wise to listen to the video properly before you upload it to a public forum and embarrass yourself with dodgy singing
On the one I have you have a choice of recording sound or not. It should be in the options menu along with Resolution and record length section size (2min,5min,15min).
I'd imagine that it would be a good thing to keep on..... If you are unfortunate to have a knock the other person could make some comment or statement that could well be caught by the camera. If you're publishing footage on here movie maker on windows can kill the sound for you...
Oh yeah I totally agree. The option is there though, for the person that asked and liked singing in the car.
I am very tempted by that 1080p unit. I am struggling to find a recognisable seller online. Most are US based.
Is there an Irish/euro area one that anyone has used with no complaints ? Chinavision are just wholesalers and well.....Chinese.
All the ones on ebay seem to be £160 ish + . He mentions £100 in the video . Wouldnt mind payign that but £160 is touching €200.
