Yi Smart Dash Cam – First look

Ok, I will be honest with you on this one. As I’m in the middle of preparing for yet another mad cycle ride, I have run out of time to publish the review on this one. However, because this camera has impressed me so much I wanted to …

Another dashcam special

You’ve probably seen our recent coverage of dashcams such as the Zeepin, the Thinkware F800 and the tiny Conbrov one which we grabbed footage from but today…. ..well today there’s yet another reason for getting one.. Insurance scams. Usually these will consist of a couple of cars closely …

Conbrov Mini Dashcam – Example footage

Following my initial hands-on last week, I’ve now mounted the camera and recorded some footage for you. The tiny 1080p HD dashcam is easy to use and comes with a straightforward menu and navigation system too. It’s available from Amazon for a mere £39.99 right now and, for …

So, you want a dashcam, but you don’t want the bulk?

The kind gents at Conbrov sent us a dashcam just recently. Now I’ll admit, it sat in the box for a few days and I didn’t really take a great deal of notice. After all, our “review cupboard” is always bulging. However, today I actually got time to …

Zeepin Dashcam – Review

You may remember how I covered this Zeepin Dashcam. You can buy it from Amazon USA or from Ali Express. As I mentioned before, it slots onto a bracket which adheres to your windscreen and features a lens which can be tilted to suit. In my case, it’s …

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 …

Why do you need a camera in your car? Watch this..

The idea of having a dashcam would’ve seemed a bit weird some years ago but, with bad drivers and nearly everybody lying about everything nowadays, it’s good to get something that can’t be argued with. Thinkware have just launched their new full HD dashcam, which they call the …

Thinkware F770 Dashcam review

A few weeks ago I was filling my car at the local petrol station and noticed that if you purchased a certain amount of fuel you could buy a dash cam for £20, which I promptly did. However, this camera can only be described as awful. It was …

Garmin Dash Cam 35 Review

The purpose of dash cams is varied. Some would say that they’re an essential tool for reporting exactly what happened in those moments before a crash. Others would tell you that they’re a great tool for showing terrible driving on YouTube. Personally, from what I’ve seen on YouTube, …

Record your driving with an Eye Witness from Garmin

Yes, I know we don’t normally cover this sort of thing, but I’m putting this squarely into the “interesting” category. You may have seen or heard of on-board cameras in cars, particularly in the US, that continually record footage as you drive. In the event of an accident, …
