BR,

I have not received the item yet. And I received the following message from Ebay "This listing was removed by eBay. If you already paid for the item, we recommend that you wait 10 days from the expected delivery date to see if the item arrives. If you did not pay,you are no longer obligated to pay for this item. If you have a problem with the purchase, you can resolve the problem by filing a claim through our resolution center"

I presume this is heading for a refund.

I can see this on eBay, variously showing as "2.5 Inch HD Car LED DVR Dash Video Camera Recorder Camcorder LCD 270 Degree" and "HD Color IR DVR NightVision Car Dash Camera 2.5inch TFT LCD Screen Road Recorder" under http://www.ebay.in/itm/HD-Color-IR-D...ht_9919wt_1037 and all in the shade under 2900/- rupee range.

What I need this for - a friend of mine claims he has been targetted and accused of a variety of misdeeds on the road in an argument with the police and this is something I want to safeguard against, so need a simple car dash camera kit that can also turn to the left and right as well as point straight ahead while driving. The dual camera sorts appear to cost about twice this amount.

Anybody got a review or feedback on this please? Thanks in advance

I received (through family in UK) an H.264 portable car camcorder/dashcam (unbranded made in China) and while I shall upload the photographs of the product itself, here's the first video I made using it.

This is on automatic day/night setting, without changing any of the default settings, as I try to understand it better.



Cost shade under 60 pound sterling plus extra for the 16GB memory card.

(all police cruisers in the US have dashcams and it can very well be used as evidence)

He also said that its up to the judge here, should he choose to accept it or rejects it as evidence!

Even i am thinking of buying them, the initial plan was Go Pro but the cost was way high and I am sure I am not going to use so extensively hence decided to pick something in mid range budget.
My initial online research inclined me towards these came DOD LS300, LS400 and LS430 and SJ1000, the LS430 is costly at close to 175 $ but comes with GPS logger, G sensor etc with Google maps.
SJ1000 is the budget cam and costs 74$ with shipping.
My requirement was full HD cam which i can use it in car as car DVR as well occasional videos from bike ride.
I am ordering SJ1000 in couple of days, if I find it useful sure i'll be orderingDOD LS430 as well.

I own the SJ1000, its amazing as far as IQ is concerned. You can go for it. However, remember, 90% of SJ1000s are fakes(any popular cam gets lots of fakes).
So make sure you buy from a seller with high rating

A whole bunch of my friends in the UK have bought this 720p dashcam with rear cam too:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321190448711 and are thoroughly happy with the performance.
Highly recommended.

Here's the first day-video I uploaded from my webcam, again, on automatic settings, and actual un-edited.



Heartily suggest dashcams of any brand as essential equipment in this day and age,

Did you finally buy it? Looking forward to your review about the vendor and the cam if you did.

It runs fine for about 1.2-1.5 hours. You can buy from an ebay seller which has good feedback rating.
you can also try aliexpress and choose from seller which highest feedback rating for SJ1000

Watch "SJ1000 coming out of basement parking." on YouTube -

Watch "SJ1000 test at commercial street parking lot." on YouTube -

Quite happy with its built and functionality, worth each penny, even attachments are of good quality. I have plugged in class 10 32 GB micro SD card and videos are flawless even at 1080P resolution.
