Choose the right Car Dashcam with help of these tips

by Black Vue Car Camera Distributor

These days, a car dashcam is more than just a luxury purchase that can capture offbeat footage. It can be used to identify perpetrators committing crimes against anyone around the camera. In fact, the footage recorded on a dashcam can also be used as an important evidence to get insurance claims.

Many people don’t recognize the importance of having an in car camera, as they prefer using their smartphone camera for recording an incident. Instead of offering help, this method can result in a disappointment due to several reasons. Exposure to sunlight and direct heat degrades battery life of a smartphone and can cause long-term damage. In addition to this, a dedicated recording device can offer better benefits without interrupting other things like a phone call, etc.

Irrespective of the budget, one can get the best value for his/her spent money by purchasing a modern dashcam.

Important features to consider

Video resolution- The recording camera should have at least Full HD 1080p recording capacity to ensure the footage is sharp enough to see license plates, car model, and faces. Getting a dashcam with 4K UHD resolution is also a good option; one can record more details like car license plate from 4 to 5 cars distance away. With latest H265 compression, one doesn’t have to worry about the file size anymore.

Storage capacity- One should aim for at least 64 GB of storage. As a camera with higher resolution will need a larger space to store the videos, it is essential to purchase microSD cards of a higher storage capacity. One should look for dashcams that can support minimum of 128GB or even 256GB storage capacity for future upgrade.

Night vision- One cannot predict when an accident could occur. Street lights, city lights, and headlights of vehicles can sometimes provide enough illumination, but those lights aren’t always going to be there. So, one shouldn’t risk this factor while buying a car dashcam.

Automatic on/off- Some dashcams are designed to turn on when the engine of the vehicle is switched on and turn off when the car’s engine shuts off. One should also consider having a dashcam with parking mode as the dashcam can record even when one is away and the engine is off. The dashcam should be powered safely by a standalone rechargeable battery like Celllink.
