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).

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.

Here, high traffic volumes and congestion make driving conditions difficult and stressful, and the result is that 75% of all UK motor accidents occur in urban environments.
