Posted: Thu May 30, 2013 10:16 pm Post subject: Any Dashcam users?
I just bought a DVR-027 on ebay, it was about $59 and came from China.
I've been wanting one for quite sometime, partly to cover my A$$ in an accident or just to catch some of the crazy driving I see daily on the Northside of Milwaukee.
As stated in the article, it can take up to a 32GB SD card (purchased seperately) and it has cyclical recording so when the card fills up it starts recording over the oldest files.
I have it set to turn on with motion sensing since the Impala constantly provides power to the lighter outlets.
It's been a great purchase so far, the video is clear and crisp, the audio is pretty good to hear my in-car road rage.
I'm looking to find a decent FREE video editor just so I can cut the length of videos, I don't need to do anything flashy or special. I used the youtube video editor for this one but it takes quite awhile to upload and cut the video, I'd like something local.
I also wonder if anyone uses a better video posting site than youtube for sharing if I do happen to get something interesting.
Windows has built in video editing software... Windows Live Movie Maker.
It keeps crashing on my version, I still have XP, I might try the newer version see if that's any better. I really just looking for something simplier than that just so I can cut videos, I don't need all the other features.
I've been wanting to get one, might have t pick up the same one, pretty good quality and not a bad price
Just becareful, there are alot of fakes out there that look just like this one, read the article to help spot the differences.
In a thread about a year ago or so someone had the same question and I posted a clip from my dash cam but I can't find the thread. The search isn't finding it. I dubbed the theme from Mannix onto it. I have a cheap ebay unit but the resolution is good.

I wish I had one I could have caught a near head on collision today. I was on a 2 lane side street dumb ass on a cell phone was pulling out of a drive way and did not make a correct turn and was going east in the west bound lane.
