Zeepin Dashcam Overview – You can win a dashcam too!

At this time of year, there’s always going to be some slightly unpredictable driving. Some idiots will take a chance drink driving, others will be distracted and some will just be generally terrible at driving or parking. It’s basically silly season where everybody panics to get those bargains …

Conbrov T19 Car Key Fob Camera – Review

A camera recording in per 1280 x 720p is one thing. But having one hidden inside a car key fob is another. Here, for those who might need it, is a key fob which can detect movement, record it, or manually if you prefer. Why would you want …

Thinkware F800 Dash Cam – Review

Back in August last year (oh how time flies) I reviewed the amazing Thinkware F770 Dashcam. Since then I’ve been contacted and asked to review the latest iteration – the Thinkware F800 Pro. Good Points: This is a feature-packed device (see main body of the review) 140 degree …

Why you should invest in a dash cam

Because I’m a tight-wad, I paid a mere £8.46 for a dash cam. The resulting product, unsurprisingly, is a piece of crap. The low-light performance is appalling, the build quality is flaky, the rear LCD panel doesn’t always illuminate and despite the “HD” promise, the 640×480 video reproduction …

Hello Nest Hello

If you’ve bought into the Nest gadgets, this next big gadget from Google is definitely going to be on your shopping list. This is a doorbell, and like all doorbells it’ll sit right alongside your knockers to alert you to visitors. Called the “Hello”, it is a bit …

Selfie stick? Phone cover? Combined? Boom!

You want a case, but you also want a selfie stick. What to do eh? Just how are you going to take those arty shots and simultaneously annoy everyone in the surrounding area without that selfie stick? What you need, flower, is a Stikbox. It’s a world first …

Remember the HTC Re ? You can still get something like it..

It was an interesting idea. A camera, without a viewfinder, that you randomly carried around (probably with your camera-packing-phone) and generally pointed in roughly the right direction of whatever you wanted to film. We reviewed the HTC Re a couple of years back but now it’s vanished from …

The Kitvision Immerse 360 Duo 360 Degree Camera – Review

Last November I reviewed the Kitvision Immerse 360 Action Camera for Coolsmartphone.com, and whilst generally my experience was positive, there was still plenty of room for improvement. The Kitvision Immerse 360 Duo is the latest version in the Duo range but does it improve on the original?? Let’s …

OPPO F3 to feature dual front camera setup

We’ve started to see more and more smartphones coming out with three cameras instead of two. You’ll have two on the rear for wide-angle or clever RGB / monochrome detection and there’s usually one up front for selfie shots. However, Oppo want to turn that setup around with …

The Huawei P10 – First impressions and camera special

This comes on loan from EE, where it’s available for £40.99 per month with 5GB of monthly data and unlimited texts and calls. Although I’ve perhaps not totally unleashed everything it can do – I’m properly impressed so far. Out of the box, it was the build quality …

MWC – Hands-on with the Arlo Go 4G mobile camera

This one is still on pre-order but you can get it first in the US for $449.99, then you’ll need to put a SIM card in. It’s a camera that will monitor movement and, if you want, live stream from anywhere with a 3G or 4G signal. Created …

Fancy a flying tripod?

We’re all aware of drones. They float around and, based on my experience, seem to fly off into neighbours gardens so that I have to sheepishly ask for it back. Here we have a new idea. It’s a smartphone case which houses a drone. Just snap it out …

Netatmo Presence – A new outdoor security camera with a light

Another security camera for you today and this time it’s from Netatmo. We’ve already written about their kit, and they’ve now moved on from weather stations with this Netatmo Presence camera.

Hot Wheels stunts, filmed on a tiny car camera

Me and my son love Hot Wheels. When I was a kid I used to put tracks all around the house and now I’m doing it all over again. Anyway, we stumbled over this simply amazing video. It’s been filmed by someone with far too much money and …
