Dash Cam Pro

lpskierlpskier Posts: 2,832 Mega Baller
Just saw an ad on TV for a product called Dash Cam Pro (watching the men's downhill from Kitzbuhel; Lake Placid skier Andrew Weibrecht was second in the Super G yesterday). Put the camera on the car windshield and record your journey. It has a 120 degree field of vision. $40 plus shipping. Anyone try it on a boat pointed toward the skier?

    The one I have been using is not wide enough for slalom or jump, works for trick. I use it to monitor boat paths when my end course video isn't running. I ran one all last year. I run them on my cars too, seems no one can stay in their lane any more and I will have HD video when one hits me and trys to say I hit them:)

    If it runs off the 12v supply in the boat, it may still be cool to put it on a wake-eye or something like that. I love my JVC camera but hate how the batteries occasionally go on the fritz when it gets warm. Would also be nice to not have to recharge batteries every day.

    If you plug into a switched outlet, they start and stop recording automatically when the boat starts and shuts off. Although you can change in setup, they typically default to recording two minute clips. If you put a 64 gb card in one, even recording in HD you get many hours of recording before it overwrites. (You can also configure to stop recording when full, or use the default which will constantly overwrite the oldest file).
