Been toying with the idea of a permanent dash cam for a while but the biggest worry is it being seen from outside and my window smashed for it. The shaded band at the top of the front windscreen does do an excellent job of concealing anything attached so I'm thinking I could have it quietly poking down just in front of the mirror next to the rain sensor. Anyway, here's the shortlist of cameras I'm looking at. Has anyone got one of those and can give their thoughts on it? 1. MI Witness HD @ £249.95 which is 720p and 120° viewing angle + Hard Wiring Kit with battery drain protect @ £29.99 = Total Cost: £279.94 There doesn't seem to be many reported problems with this and looks like good image quality but the price is quite high. 2. Roadhawk 720 @ £139.96 which is 720p and 135° viewing angle + Hard Wiring Kit @ £14.95 = Total Cost: £154.91 Good price but I'm not very impressed with the image quality of Roadhawk cameras and I believe their software is very buggy. I don't think there's a parking function on this camera. 3. Roadhawk Ride @ £142.77 which is 720p and waterproof to 10m. Comes with Hard Wiring Kit = Total Cost: £142.77 Good price but I'm not very impressed with the image quality of Roadhawk cameras, although this could be ideal for front grill mounting reducing the risk of having my windows smashed. No parking facility though so it will shutdown when the car is turned off. Their software is meant to be very buggy. 4. Blackvue DR380 HD @ £154.99 (Amazon) which is 720p and 120° viewing angle + Hard Wiring Kit with battery drain protect @ £34.99 = Total Cost £189.98 Good image quality but there's been reported problems with the exposure changing a lot whilst driving. The later models are in silver so harder to hide. I'm leaning towards the Roadhawk ride purely on the basis of not wanting my windows smashed. Although, I'll have to figure a way of getting the wiring through from the engine bay to the cabin fuse box unless I can use the box in the engine bay, but this may not allow me to close it tight, which I won't be happy with. There's a Blackvue Baros A3 which comes with a hardwiring kit but I've heard these are just cheap Chinese copies that have been rebranded by Blackvue and a 100% markup slapped on. With any hardwiring installation I'll be using an add-a-circuit to protect the car element that I tap into should the camera short etc. What with the number of crazy drivers, the fact that I'm usually alone when driving so no witness and now the new police powers to instant fine for crap driving which is subjective I want to have a witness in my car! Any thoughts guys?
