5.0 out of 5 stars E-PRANCE New 1080P Novatek CPU 1.5" Car DVR Driving Recorder Video Camera GS608 + 120 Degree Wide Angle + G-sensor + 5 Megapixe, 18 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: E-PRANCE® New 1080P Novatek CPU 1.5" Car DVR Driving Recorder (Electronics)
Had one of these for a few days now, done 20hrs worth of driving with it so far, I'm very impressed with it and don't think you could get better value for it's price of less than £25.
A bonus it's about the smallest you can get, unobtrusive so can hide behind the mirror and you can just leave it to do it's job without messing about.
I'd read other comments as they all seem fairly coherent.
I get a little bit radio interference from the 5v cig lighter power supply but not a problem with a strong local radio signal, the car power adapter is going as I'm to hard wire it with a better 5v supply.
One supplied has Firmware V20140112.2012
I've stuck an old camera microSD card (unbranded 8Gb class4) in it, formatting in the camera it did it to FAT32 64kb sectors. (I don't know what it was formatted to before).
Setting the recording to 5 minute chunks I've been getting 50mins of driving before it erases the oldest file.
To give an estimated recording times for various cards:
8Gb = 51min
32Gb= 3hrs 26min
I've ordered, just awaiting a 32Gb C10 card as they seem the best value point at the mo at £12-18 each.
Each day had a new dated folder is created so you have some order of where to start looking if needed.
The recorded image is just brilliant, yes full 1080P very clear and sharp, easily identify number plates. It has an anti-shake, image stabilization keeping the image sharp and smooth over potholes etc.. You have the option to rotate the image 180 deg if required too, so it can be mounted on your Dashboard rather than the more typical fixing it to the window screen.
At night (no moon) on an unlit road you are fairly limited to what it sees but definitely enough if something is needed, on a illuminated road/motorway it's OK. Knowing cameras/CCTV you'd need to be spending LOTS more to get anything better than this. (Don't even think of looking at the cameras with IR LED illumination as this is all you will see at night glaring back off your screen)
This model doesn't have the power pins through the connector and slightly different to the more expensive models so you can't use their slimline adhesive patch mount.
(READ THE ADVICE THE SELLER HAS IN BLUE WRITING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE DIFFERENT CAMERAS AVAILABLE!!!!)
Some have commented on playback and problems, I'd guess most of this is down to the micro SD card they have used and why the Seller also supplies options with cards they KNOW work perfectly.

I'm just about to order 3 more, for front/back mounting of our cars.

UPDATE: Been using a several in cars now for several months without any problems, occasionally removed and checked the recordings to make sure still working... Perfect... I've also hard wired a different 5v power supply in making the wiring unobtrusive, you wouldn't really notice cameras are fitted now and has stopped the little bit of radio interference I had before. Still very pleased with purchaces and still definitely recommend.
