How to Choose the Right Dashcam for Your Vehicle

by Black Vue Car Camera Distributor

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting from among the various car camera brands available in the market. Here are a few things to consider while choosing your car camera recorder in Singapore. 

 

The Cost

 

The price of a dashcam varies as per the feature. It ranges from as low as $50 for a basic model to $900 for an advanced and feature-packed dashcam. The cheaper dashcams may not necessarily be the optimal choice as they may lack the features and clarity required to help you in case of an accident. It is better to choose a feature-rich car camera recorder in Singapore from a reputed brand as this works almost like insurance on your safety while you are on the road. 

 

Reliability

 

If you are going to invest in a dashcam, do it right. Check and compare reviews of different models. Look for models that will perform optimally in different climatic conditions. The purpose of installing an in-car camera will be of no use if the camera does not work when it is most required.

Check if the dashcam supports parking mode recordings (recording while engine is switched off). Even it does, check for any proven track record that the dashcam is able to sustain the harsh climate. Since such feature requires the dashcam to be switched on most of the time, most low cost dashcam is unable to perform reliably. In addition, check if the brand provides after-sales service. In the event the dashcam does not work, you will need to get it repaired quickly. 

 

Video Quality & Memory

 

The video quality of an in-car camera is essential. When you met with an accident, it is crucial that the details of the accident are evident in the footage of the camera. A high-quality camera with the capability to record up to 4K Ultra HD with 4 times more pixels than Full HD 1080p will give you footage with more clarity in which license plates are clearly visible from further distance. You should also ensure that your camera has sufficient memory, which will determine how long a camera will record before the card loops and begins recording over earlier recordings. Best video compression such as H.265 helps to maintain smaller size for the recorded file s even though it is in 4K resolutions.

Good quality camera has special Adaptive Format Free feature which requires lesser user intervention to format the SD card as to maintain the recording stability.

 

Recording Capability

 

Do you want to catch footage of only what is ahead of your vehicle (1 Channel), or do you want to get detailed footage of your vehicle's surroundings (2 Channel)? By the way, 2-channel or front and back camera is the most popular nowadays. It could monitor the traffic condition for the front and even the rear side of your vehicle. For some cases, your recorded video may help others who involves in an accident or hit and run.

 

Take the time to understand your requirements and pick the right dashcam to keep you safe against unexpected incidents.
