Did you know that in some countries, dash cameras are obligatory due to many insurance company frauds? Oh yes they are and in fact, they should be able to record video also for use in case of an accident. One of the best budget dash cams comes from -who else- Xiaomi. It is the Xiaomi Xiaoyi that was released 1.5 years ago and still makes for a very good solution.
The Xiaomi Xiaoyi is a specialized version of the YI Action Cam. Other than that, they are two different products as the former is optimized as a car DVR. It comes with a simple menu that is mainly icon based and very intuitive to use. It supports resolutions up to 1296p with a framerate of 30fps, or 1080p at up to 60fps. If you go for the [email protected] one, you should use a high quality SD card with a high read speed. For the rest of the resolutions, a normal class 10 SDcard will do the job.
As you already saw in the title, the camera is on offer at TomTop, where you can obtain it for $50.99 with free shipping for the US buyers. You can find it here. Beware, because the offer is limited to 200 units from which almost half are already gone! Below, you can see a nice review of the camera.
