Budget Dash Cams
Video cameras that are attached usually to the windscreen and record traffic movement during a journey have attracted the name " Dash Cams" a strange name considering they are rarely mounted on the dash board. These cameras have grown in popularity as they claim to record events if the driver is unfortunate to have an accident. Several manufacturers now market these products with widely varying prices and features. This short survey investigates whether these low cast cameras are worth considering. The lower priced cameras generally require a memory card and currently 8GB cards are available for about £5 so this needs to be added in. Two models that are widely available have been tested One model shown below on the left is widely offered on Ebay, garage forcourts etc. and can be purchased for as little as £8. The one on the right for around £30.
