Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Motion-detection works nice is very functional. IR Leds works to view at night or on ambients without light. Pedestal small and nice. Av out
Cons:
Image isnt 3.0MP, its deffintly a not very good image quality Wide angle isnt 140º Max file size is 150mb(4:30 mins each file), so every 150 mgs a new file is added, this make a 2-3 seconds of gap (lot of cameras are like this, so i can dela with that) The image lags sometimes, like 0,5 secs freezings, thats not nice. (i dont know if it is a defect in my unit or it is in all cameras) CANT CHARGE WITH USB, just in your car... (i dont know if it is a defect in my unit or it is in all cameras) BATTERY is TERRIBLE, after a fully charge, when i put it at AVout to see the battery life, it is already on last bar (there are 3 bars) (flashing 50% to 33% and 33% to 55%) (i dont know if it is a defect in my unit or it is in all cameras)
Other:
If you are perfectionist you will not like this. Im very unhappy with some deffects..
Bottomline:
You can find better car camera if you look hard... I picked up this one cuz it have(or should had): -good battery (800mha) -av out -motion detect -IR leds -3.0 MP (afteral it isnt 3.0mp) Its hard to find all of that configs in one car camera, but the image quality should be better...
