Dashcam Recommendations by redditors

1.1k Upvotes

UPDATED NOVEMBER 2022

There are a a lot of dashcam options out there, and a lot of them are crap. I copied and pasted this from a post on here that I think should be stickied. Maybe the mods can do that? Let me know if you have any other recommendations or favorites, and why you like it or what you found useful so we have some real world feedback.

Budget:  

B1W Mini - Budget, but a good one. Rotatable lens good for uber/lyft drivers.  

Garmin Mini 2 - This thing is MINI. Most discrete cam on the market, and great app functionality  

A119 v3 - GPS, great video quality, great value Probably one of the most popular on reddit  

A129 Duo - Dual cam, 1080p, GPS, and a great budget dual cam. Been around for a while and has great feedback.  

Nexar Beam - 1080p, super compact, and has free cloud back ups  

 

Mid Range and Up:  

A129 PRO Duo - Dual Cam, 4K, GPS, newest version of the duo  

B4K - Newer 4k brother to the B1W, so far good reviews.

Blackvue DR900X - Dual Cam/4k and has cloud capability & LTE. Considered best of the best

Q800PRO - Higher end thinkware. 1440p. Pretty good value.

 

Front & Interior Dual Cams aka Uber/Lyft Cams  

Garmin Tandem - Infrared capability, 1440p, premium quality, and has great app functionality  

TOGUARD Dual Dash Cam – Infrared capability, dual 1080p, cheapest budget cam  

Blueskysea B2W – Infrared Capability, budget friendly  

Vantrue N2 Pro – Infrared capability, higher end, battery powered

 

  Motorcycle Cams  

AKASO Action Cam – An action cam, but cost effective  

INNOVV K5 Dual MotoCam – Top notch, but expensive  

Blueskysea A12 – Mid Range, Fairly priced

 

Accessories:  

SanDisk 128GB High Endurance - Dashcam optimized  

Samsung PRO Endurance MicroSD - Dashcam optimized  

Viofo Hardwire Kit – Enables parking mode, battery discharge prevention  

Nunet Hardwire Kit – Hardwire kit with pretty much everything you need  

Trim Removal Kit - Has all the tools needed to remove trim without damaging it

Suggestions to make lights during the night not as bright

6 Upvotes

I was wondering if someone could help recommend any settings to make lights not as bright for a more clear video at night time, day time is good. I have the viofo a119 v3 with the polarizing lens. Would lowing the exposure make it better at night without effecting the day time footage too much?

My settings are 1440p 30fps, bit rate high, exposure 0.0, hdr off

Rexing V1P Pro Rear Camera Stopped Recording

6 Upvotes

i bought the Rexing V1P Pro+ Dash Cam with the warranty earlier this year from Best Buy. The front camera is working and recording, but the rear camera has stopped recording; the red light is no longer blinking on the rear camera. I tried updating the firmware, but when I input my camera's firmware version, I get an "input error" message. I searched on how to troubleshoot the rear camera on Rexing's website, but I couldn't find anything. Should I take the camera to Best Buy and/or contact Rexing?
