Road-Cam RecorderComments Off on Road-Cam Recorder
When you’re on the road for a while, the urge usually comes along to want to film some of the more breathtaking trips. The Corniche on the Cote d’Azur, le Pont de Normandie, meadows in the Pyrenees or sometimes even the murky crossing over the Severn Estuary. I’ve fiddled about with my phone and my little video camera trying to save those very breathtaking views for posterity. What I actually get is a really good shot of my hands or lap, lots of camera shake and glare from the windscreen. I don’t want to bore myself or anyone else with hours of film of us trundling along the road but some bits really are worth a second look. There’s also the added bonus that if you’re unlucky enough to be involved in, or witness an accident, it’s all on film.
I’ve had a look on the internet and I quite like the look of this Road-Cam Recorder from RoadPro.
It’s small and compact and fixes to the windscreen with a suction cup like the one you have on a sat nav, so you can fix it up and then forget about it.
The Road-Cam plugs into your 12v lighter and will start recording once you turn the ignition on. You can turn the camera on and off manually too. I like that you can leave it set up and it will just start recording, as I would be bound to forget and miss the best bits.
It will record your journey in clips of 5, 10 or 15 minute segments which can then be downloaded to your PC if there are any clips you want to keep. It records in 1920 x 1080 HD format making the quality crisp and clear and it can also be used at night.
The 1.5inch LCD display means that you can keep an eye on what you’re recording and you can playback on the screen too, and with its 120 degree view you get a clear shot of the road ahead.
The Road-Cam comes supplied with a 32Gb Kingston Micro SD card capable of recording hours of your trip.
I think I’m quite hooked on the concept so I might have to ask Santa for one for Christmas.
The Road-Cam is available at £99.99 from RoadPro.
