Mobius ActionCam (Dash Cam Version) Review

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Tuesday, 18 February 2014

Mobius Action Camera

The Mobius ActionCam is an all round action camera which comes with the basic dash cam features required to make it an ideal car camera. This includes loop recording, auto power on/off, range of car mounts, and auto recording amongst other things which turn this light and nimble action camera into the perfect dash cam.

When you first hold the camera you realise just how small and light it actually is with an excellent build quality - it feels very strong and sturdy, more than enough to cope with even the worst drivers out there! It's by far the smallest dash cam on the market and one of the cheapest.

Mini 0801 firmware update

One way of ensuring your Mini 0801 dash cam is performing at its best is to keep the firmware up to date. Firmware is essentially the programming of your camera and manufacturers will release new firmware files as they develop their products so users can update them. This often adds new features and menu options, or fixes known issues and bugs. With each firmware upgrade your product will usually get better and more stable. Read our tutorial to see how this is done.

Our guide to parking protection with real life footage

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Monday, 20 January 2014

Parking Protection Video

Parking protection is a popular feature on many dash cams but we're often asked, just exactly, "what is it?" Does it help you park the car into a tight space? Does it record whilst you're parked? Read on for our beginners guide to parking protection or watch our video for an overview by the lovely Katie.

If you've ever returned to your car in a car park and noticed a dent in the door or even worse, dented and scratched panels, you'll immediately see the benefit parking protections can bring.

In a nutshell, parking protection is a mode on the camera which continues to record whilst you have parked and left your car. When the camera detects movement in front using motion detection or a shock using a built-in g-sensor, it will record and lock a file so you can play it back later should you need to.

Monitor your kids behind the wheel

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Monday, 30 December 2013

If you're a parent, handing the keys to your precious car over to your 17 year old son or daughter can be a tough decision. We all know that statistically drivers under 25 are at a higher risk of being involved in a car accident and as a result we've found that many parents are turning to car cameras as a way to help improve their children's driving and reduce the risk of an accident.

We all know that statistically drivers under 25 are at a higher risk of being involved in a car accident. There are many reasons for this including lack of experience and attention, excessive speed, poorly maintained cars, night-time driving, and perhaps a false sense of confidence.

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.
