When a motorist is on the road, anything can occur. From witnessing a double rainbow to unintentionally knocking someone’s cow off the sideways, these scenarios call for evidence; and that’s when a dash cam comes in handy.
A dash cam is a digital video camera that is fixed on the car’s dashboard to record whatever journey the driver is on when the car is moving. And here are the best car cameras that tick off all the right boxes:
HD DVR 2.4” Night Vision 6 LED Wide Angle Lens
Best dash cam with night vision which is cheap
With under RM50, you get a cam like this right here that speaks EIGHT languages, from Russian to Korean, to French, and the list goes on. Don’t judge its reasonable price as it works just as good as any other dash cam if not better. It has a fairly simple outlook and that’s what makes its appearance obvious for other drivers to know that you have an ‘eye’ watching them—an eye that has a view as wide as 170-degree.
Transcend DrivePro 520
Best car camera for Uber drivers
Referred as the “taxi cam”, this cam records both the exterior and interior of a car; and it covers a wide field of 180-degree view. This cam comes with a suction cup that makes it easy to be mounted on the windshield. Its 32GB micro SD card can be upgraded to 64GB for longer recording duration.
Makiyo 2.7″ Vehicle Car DVR Camera
Best car blackbox camera and DVR camera with GPS
A cam like this right here is perfect for delivery drivers or elderly parents as this cam has a playback software that will show you where the journey was via a Google map diagram on the screen. It might look like a small cam, but it can record videos at a high resolution. This cam also has a function of double lens video recording where it can optical zoom in two times, meaning that it can zoom in and out of the distance without loss of image quality.
GOQ G9000 Car DVR Camera Video Recorder
Best dash cam for those on a budget and for night driving
This is the cam that many of us will long for. The price is on point and so is the outlook and the features. With less than RM100, you can get a cam like this that captures and records video at night clearly without worrying about shaky images as it has a built-in intelligent anti-shake technology. It is also able to withstand temperatures as high as 70 degree Celsius to as low as -20 degree Celsius.
Garmin GDR C300 HD Driving Recorder
Best dash cam for excellent video quality
With its display stretching at a good length of 3 inches wide, this cam has a wide-angle lens that captures the excellent video detail on the road and journey ahead in both bright or low-light conditions. When it comes to vehicle damage, due to a collision, this cam can be removed to take close-up shots of the incident.
Thinkware F50 Dashcam
Best dash cam without screen
Wondering what’s that one cam that records your journey without fail? Not only will this cam record continuously, it has various recording modes including the event recording mode, manual recording mode and parking recording mode. Its external GPS enables the safety camera alert whereby it detects red lights and alerts you when there is a speed cam around. With no bulky screens blocking your view, this cam fits just about any corner of your windshield perfectly.
Xiaomi Mijia Mi Car Camcorder
Best dash cam small in size with audio
This cam has a small screen but is wide enough for touch button operation. Unlike other cams that still use the suction cup design, high temperature and static stickers are used to install this cam. This cam can be controlled by a mobile app called the MiJia App, which means that most of the settings can be controlled through this app. Although the interface of this cam is in Chinese, this is a good value unit if you are fine with not changing any of the settings.
