Things you need to know when buying a Dash Camera
Single Lens Dash Camera vs Dual Lens Dash Camera
Single lens cameras record footages through the windscreen of your car. They are often the most affordable options, not to mention very easy-to-install.

Video quality depends on the camera resolution and frame rates. This is an essential feature that you need to consider.

Nowadays many types of incidents can happen while we are away from our vehicle. Occurrences can be from a simple door ding at a parking lot, to a hit-and-run accident by a careless driver, or, a theft inside the car when it’s unattended. It also comes reliable in the event of power loss during an accident as it can provide backup power within the vehicle. Capacitor dash cameras are more heat resistant as they are designed for extreme temperature and therefore always ready to record when your vehicle is on.
