Dashcam Discounts on Insurance

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Wednesday, 21 May 2014

Dashcam discounts

Last month saw Swiftcover become the first mainstream insurer to offer a discount to their customers that install a dashcam. While their 10% discount might only equate to around £30 off their average policy value, it's great to see a new company recognise the benefits that dashcams offer. For more information on how you can save money on your car insurance, and to find out about other companies that offer similar discounts, read our blog post.

Helmet cameras for cyclists

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Friday, 9 May 2014

Helmet cameras

Riding a bicycle is enjoyable for many reasons and millions of UK residents regularly take to the roads on two-wheels. Whether to commute to places of work, escape the hustle-and-bustle of city life or to get their pulses racing in more extreme cycling activities. However, there can be downsides and, at the top of that list, are the dangers that exist when you are on a bike, compounded by the lack of protection that you get when you're in a car. It is because of these dangers that helmets are so important, and helmet cameras can also play an important part.

iPixi/Winycam V200HD Review

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Tuesday, 15 April 2014

iPixi V200HD

If you've read our review of the BlackVue DR550GW, you'll know that we're big fans of 2-channel dashcams here at Car Camera Shop. To you and me, that's a dashcam that features both a front and a rear-facing camera. There's no denying that having footage of activity on the road behind you as well as in front gives outstanding peace-of-mind. So we were excited to review the iPixi/Winycam V200HD and see how this smart looking dashcam performs.

iPixi/Winycam X100FHD Review

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Thursday, 10 April 2014

iPixi X100FHD

The iPixi X100FHD (also called the Winycam X100FHD) is a unique camera with many features which make it stand out from the others. At £199.99 it's priced at the top end of the range and has full HD, GPS mapping for speed and location tracking, a g-sensor to monitor impacts, parking protection, and a unique swivel lens allowing you to point the camera inside the car - a feature particularly useful for taxi drivers and driving instructors.

The first thing we noticed when opening the box and unpacking the camera was that is felt like a sturdy and well built unit. The materials oozed quality and it was firmly put together. You get all the essentials in the box but no spare adhesive pads means there's no backup in case you want to move the camera later. You can always get spare adhesive pads from eBay if you need to.

Powering your dash cam with a cigarette lighter socket

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Saturday, 22 March 2014

Cigarette Car Accessory Socket

If you're new to car cameras it's important to know that they get their power from the car cigarette lighter socket. Car cameras can't work off an internal battery alone because they will only last a couple of hours before running out. It's worth noting that many cameras do have an internal battery which allow you to take the camera out of the car and use a still camera.

A Car Camera Success Story

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Monday, 10 March 2014

One of the main reasons that we buy car cameras is so that we can prove our innocence in the case of an incident; in particular, those that result in damage to our vehicles. With even cosmetic repairs running to hundreds, or even thousands of pounds, being able to show, irrefutably, that it wasn't your fault is crucial. And that's exactly what I managed to do recently, thanks to the footage from my trusty Mini 0801.
