Mini 0801 Car Camera Review

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Friday, 6 December 2013

Mini 0801 Car Camera

The Mini 0801 has been hugely popular ever since we added it to our site, so we put it through it's paces to see how it performed during our tests. With full HD 1080p video and a smart little LCD screen, it is packed with great features, so read our review to see if it performs as well as it looks...

The first thing that impressed us about this car camera was the size. At just 2.8" wide it's ultra compact, but it's bullet design ensures that it makes use of the space well; squeezing a 1.5" LCD screen in along with the regular features such as the lens, a speaker, a microphone, a status LED and the usual controls. Build quality might not be to the same level as some of the more premium cameras, such as the BlackVue DR550GW-HD, but it's perfectly acceptable given the cost. A power button on the end of the camera has a distinctly plasticky feel to it, but continues to work perfectly.

Dash cams make for safer drivers

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Tuesday, 12 November 2013

It's long been thought that when being filmed, you change your behaviour - whether you realise it or not. We've found this to be true when you have a dash cam in your car. For some reason, when you know that your driving is being recorded you become a more safety conscious driver.

There appears to be no real explanation for this but perhaps it's because you want to make sure you weren't at fault should you need to rely on the footage - there's no hiding from video evidence! Remember, when you submit your footage of an accident you want to be sure that you're not left open to any blame.

We're supporting Movember with every order!

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Sunday, 3 November 2013

It's that time of year again, when girlfriends and wives up and down the country have to endure their men with fluff all over their faces. Movember is becoming more and more popular since it started back in 2003 but if you don't know what Movember is all about here's a short intro.

Movember is an event held throughout November each year. The idea is that men (and indeed some women!) sport a moustache to raise money and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. You start the month with a clean shaven face and grow your moustache (or Mo) throughout the month, promoting awareness and sparking conversations wherever you go.

The importance of car cameras for driving instructors

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Tuesday, 29 October 2013

UK driving instructors are quickly realising the many benefits of installing a car camera. Not only do they deliver peace-of-mind in the case of an accident, but they are also being used to produce training and promotional videos which are achieving tens of thousands of hits on YouTube.

There are currently around 23,000 driving instructors in the UK, each of them blessed with nerves of steel and the patience of angels. Certainly, if my lessons are anything to go by, their days are fraught with hair-raising manoeuvres at the hands of nervous students with less clutch control than a herd of buffalo. But, rather than screaming for their lives, clutching the dashboard with white knuckles, they are always a picture of calm and reassurance, as they invite us to try again (and again, and again).

Does the GoPro make a good car camera?

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Tuesday, 8 October 2013

GoPro dashcam?

The GoPro is arguably the best known action camera in the UK and has quickly established itself as one of the most popular on the market. With a range of different cameras and accessories available, it has become synonymous with extreme sports the world over and its high quality videos capture everything from skateboarding to scuba-diving.

So, if the GoPro is that good, does it also make a good car camera? We took our trusty GoPro Hero 3 for a road trip around the hills of Italy to find out!

How dash cams recorded the Russian meteorite

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Tuesday, 1 October 2013

Whilst recording the rare natural wonder of a meteorite crashing through the Earth's atmosphere at 100,000 mph isn't exactly on the top of the list of reasons to buy a dash camera, they do certainly provide amazing footage of something we've never seen on this scale before.

Back in February this year an asteroid crashed into the Earth over Russia - named the Chelyabinsk meteor. This awe inspiring sight was travelling at an estimated 40,000 mph which lit up the morning sky creating dark shadows across the large Russian region.

Our new range of bike cameras

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Sunday, 8 September 2013

After receiving many requests for bike cameras as well as car cameras, we've started to introduce a carefully selected range from the best manufacturers. But what is a bike camera? And how is it different from a car camera or an action cam?

Bike cameras are designed with the main purpose of being mounted on a bike, or more usually, on a helmet. As well as dictating that they must be compact and lightweight, this means that they need to be weather-proof and be easily controlled by touch alone. To this end, most bike cameras have simple buttons that can be used to start and stop recording without looking, and some even feature vibrating alerts that can be felt through the helmet, ensuring that the user knows that their camera is operating as it should.
