$300? Eff that, order a <$100 one online and say IDGAF if it dies.

Go here, read through and check the sample vids to find one that has what you want, order it from one of the listed sellers and be done with it https://dashcamtalk.com/

you can say that now until you get into an accident/close call and proceed to post a thread on revscene asking for any witnesses/mentioning "if only i got a dashcam sooner/there was no dashcam to record the incident unfortunately"

but in all seriousness, it's unfortunate some of our members get into accidents/have to resort to asking for witnesses. I'll be honest though, when I see a thread every other week asking for a witness I just shake my head and think "GET A DASHCAM DAMMIT"

seriously, its worth the investment and is worth every penny.

In the last year alone I seen 5-10 threads, where the OP was said some variation of:

"Should have installed my dashcam sooner"
"Def picking up a dashcam now"
"Wish I bought a dashcam sooner"

Etc.etc.

It's cheap insurance, a few hundred bucks is cheaper than even the most minor of fender benders.

As for the SD-Card question, I been using the factory blackvue one for 3 years now, and it's still holding up great. In fact my blackvue DR600 after three years still is working fine. The only issue has been that the internal battery died after about 1.5 years, so the time stamp is always wrong.

I don't know why people buy $300+ dashcam. You're not filming Titanic there, James Cameron.

grab some add-a-fuses and wire it into your kick panel fuse box. (depends on the car but this works extremely well on most cars).

I don't know why anyone would worry about how much someone else spends on a dash cam...

Regardless I agree with you, if I had to do it all over again I would snag a cheap 60-100 dollar cam, and just replace it in the event of failure. Just pray it doesn't fail you when you need it...

When I bought my blackvue all those years ago, there wasn't any decent budget dash cams available in North America like there is today.

no people aint filming titanic here, but when one gets into an accident, one would want as much details as possible from the videos. its like a $100 digital camera vs a $1000 DSLR. if the video was captured in perfect lighting, there would be virtually no quality difference, but when it comes to poor lighting, the video quality in the more expensive cam will trump the less expensive cam. its all about the sensor quality, capture rate, compression etc etc. when companies market their dash cams saying it uses "sony's cmos sensor", its not just a marketing gimmick.

My el cheapo dash cam is only there to cover the event of when someone hits me and claimed I hit them. The cheap dash cam wont be able to capture the full licence plate (unless good angle and close up) so it'll be useless for hit and run.

Open your fuse box, look at the size of fuses you have (regular or mini). Go to Princess Auto and buy a female lighter socket, an add-a-fuse in the size you need (mini or regular), and one of those butt connector/ring terminal multi packs if you don't have a soldering iron.

Take the wire from the add-a-fuse and butt connect/solder it to the wire going to the center of the lighter socket, and crimp a ring terminal to the wire going to the outer barrel. Go to the car, open the fuse box and find the fuse for your cig lighter. Remove the fuse, install the add-a-fuse and put the fuses in it, then find a nut or bolt down there that's on bare metal. Remove it, put the ring terminal on there and tighten it back down. Plug the dash cam into the socket and zip tie it up out of the way somewhere. Now the dash cam will come on with the ignition and everything is fully removable if you decide to sell the car.

That might not be terribly clear but I can make a proper tutorial with pictures and stuff if you guys want, I'll be doing all this again anyways when I put one in my GTFour.

At first I thought he would actually stop as he kind of hesitated, but NOPE just go for it anyway!
Also, I was on the right lane a few seconds earlier, about to turn left at the next corner.
