Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
This thing is what you want if you're here. Records video with sound that can be opened from PC without additional codecs, not creating load to CPU for decoding. Date & time are also captured. Easy mount and almost easy unmount. Standard mini-usb plug + coaxial 5V, 32 Gb SDHC - no problem, auto recording when powered, wide angle lens, screen rotating in 2 directions for easier viewing, detected by PC via USB (while no driver in Windows 7), no warming during operation even for a long time, auto file truncate (5 minutes per file) for easier further processing/viewing, 4 LEDs on front that are probably making things auto white balance that is working more-less fine, audio auto gain control. Power cable is LONG! You can use it as rear camera attached to rear glass still powered from cigarette lighter in front.
720x480 is not true, digital zoom is definitely applied. License plates are understandable from very short distance only. Audio gain control falls fast, but raises slow that makes audio volume to be always different. Glass handle not looks too strong, but works OK for a day so far. Front LEDs are white (not IR), thus makes car to look strange. Instruction is hard to read, English isn't very good. Default screen language isn't English, you have to find a way in menus to switch language. 5 minutes for each video file isn't adjustable. MJPG video codec that creates very big files by its nature. A bit too long power cable (alhough can be "truncated" if you have some experience in wiring/soldering).
Don't apply any force trying to attach/adjust/detach the device in the car, each time you apply force, can be the last one. But if you're careful, it will hopefully work for long.
Hope you will never use your recordings for the purposes they've initially recorded. Just enjoy this little thing and have fun!
