You most likely already have your reasons for why you want to buy a dash camera for your car. Now you want to know which camera you should go with. There are countless brands out there to consider. We've looked at an incredible amount and arrived at a conclusion. We believe you should go with one of the five models we've selected — all are made by Rexing.
Given that there are numerous brands, types, and models of dash cameras available today, you should determine what you need depending on the reason for buying.
Here are essential questions to ask yourself:
- Do you need two cameras or three?
This could be two exterior cameras, one forward-facing and one rear-mounted. Or it could be one forward and one interior looking at the cabin. Maybe you want three cameras and two of them should face forward while one is rear-mounted. Consider your requirements and look for the terms "dual channel" versus "3-channel".
- What features do you want?
Do you want Infrared Night Vision? Do you want AI Technology to assist you with alerts when it detects a hazard? GPS tracking? Consider how you plan to use you system and what you prioritize.
- Does camera resolution matter to you?
1080p is a bare minimum for the camera's we've chosen to recommend. We also feature 4k options. Consider this, 4k adds value when zooming in on footage.
- You can always buy a two camera system and pair it with a third camera later
- Memory capacity of the system
Having looked at the top buying considerations, here are five dash cams that check most boxes:
The key thing that separates this dash camera system from all the others we are recommending is simple. It's the Artificial Intelligence. You can improve your driving experience by spotting potential hazards early. The AI doesn't blink or get distracted by singing its favorite song. Beyond early warnings like Lane Departure, the V2 Pro can handle a memory card up to 256GB. You can automatically switch the dash camera to Parking Surveillance Mode so that when it detects vibrations or motion the camera will instantly start recording.
It's the 4k (3840 x 2160p) front camera plus a 2K (2560p x 1440p)rear camera that records in that makes the V1P Max the best bang. But there's more. Let's say out picking up groceries and someone tries breaking into your car. With the Parking Monitor technology the dash camera will automatically turn on and record a 20-second video when the car camera detects vibration.
You are getting so much for the price point. A complete package front camera, inside cabin camera, and rear camera all that shoot 1080p Full HD. It also has a High Speed 64GB Memory built-in. Plus you get the Night Vision Technology which provides clearer footage and images when recording in very low light conditions. The interior cabin camera is fitted with four Infrared lights facing the vehicle occupants. Now you can accurately capture the whole car interior even when completely dark.
The S1 comes complete with three cameras for front, rear and interior video capture in 1080p Full HD. You can't bet it's price. While the S1 Pro has a built in 64GB memory, the S1 supports up to one 256GB MicroSD card.
The V5C has a higher point because it provides a superior 4K (3840 x 2160) @30fps resolution for the front camera and a 1080p interior cabin facing camera with an adjustable lens. It has built in GPS logging and Voice Control for your photo/video taking tasks and more.
You can't go wrong with any of these options. The 1080p minimum resolution requirement to make this list means footage will be up to par and better.
