Can anyone recommend the best camera to get for a budget of £40. Is thus one goodbye enough?

You sound like the instructions you get with a Chinese dash cam

Buy a mobius action camera, costs bit more but awesome kit and app

Heat from me.

Not a bad price however you would not go far in terms of quality although I might be wrong as my experience with previous cheap dashcam wasn't very good. Heat added for the price.
#4
The selling point for me for these kinda things is the ability to show a good clear number plate reading image at night.

As we don't know what other model is currently selling out there thats the same as this lidl dashcam, we cannot youtube it.

I got the Xiaoyi YI 1080P 2.7" LCD Smart Car DVR Dash Camera
last year - really pleased with it (£32.60 at DX at the moment), it's quite small and although every one goes on about it being chinese - the menus are all pictures so you know what the menus are without having to flash it!

Dude the Mobius app for windows and android. Not sure about ios but the app is class, so many settings can be altered by the user.

Unfortunately, Lidl don't give enough specs to make a proper judgement, we're not even told the size of the sensor, let alone what chipset it uses, and I haven't seen this model listed on Lidl's offer site before.

The 30fps frame rate at 1080p and 60 at 720p would suggest that it is at least a relatively modern chipset so likely to be true 1080p and use a decent compression codec like h264, rather than 720p interpolated up to 1080p with mjpeg recording like I believe some of lidls previous models were.

My guess is it will be a low end budget chipset, like the General Plus one used in the G1WHT - a later, inferior version of the G1WH, so you may well be able to do a fair bit better if you are prepared to do a bit of research and buy from china. I found the forums here fairly helpful when I was looking for a budget dashcam:- https://dashcamtalk.com

On the up side it does have a 3 year guarantee providing you don't lose the receipt and Lidl is more convenient if you need to take it back.

I would never buy a dashcam with built in battery, look for capacitor versions, g1wc, mobius a118C/119C etc..

I'd like to know which cams can grab a legible number plate at night of an oncoming vehicle, I've got the NB415 and it struggles with glare oO

Not if you notice the day after someone has hit your car while it's been parked.

Your precious evidence will have been overwritten. Will not use a dash cam with less than 128gb sd card now

Most of these cameras don't have 24/7 recording. That is a specialised feature and would require proper wiring. Heck, most don't even have parking collision detection as it requires a permanent live and most people just plug into the cigarette lighter.

If you are lazy like me then this is too big. It's size of a mobile. Mine stayed in glove box for 2 years unless i traveled far. Buy those small hidden cameras
#21
...which I have. Mine is hard wired into the car, and even if you don't know how to do it, an auto electrician should be able to do it in half an hour.

You should protect your car just as much when you aren't driving it.
One hit and run in a car park and the camera has paid for itself.
You don't even need "parking collision detection" if there is even such a thing?
Continuous recording on a 128gb card gives around 2 days worth of recording - which is plenty of time to spot damage on your car and review the footage.

I bought my father a G1WH about 3 years ago , which is probably a similar size, and it has been permanently mounted behind and to the right of his rear view mirror ever since in his last two cars.

I blacked out its pointless white plastic led cover with insulation tape, and the case is all black with no chrome or printing on it, so Its not very noticeable through the windscreen and it doesn't look valuable.

No one has attempted to steal it to date.

A cheap solution that works well and the camera is pretty good IMHO. My more expensive Nextbase one gave up, so went for this based on reviews.

An easy hardwired kit link below, just plugs into fusebox, I have piggy backed off the wiper fuse as this is ingniton only power.

This is cheaper off eBay for alternatives and the Nextbase one.

No but a front + rear one has a good chance of covering everything.
Better than not having one at all isn't it? Unless you don't mind having your door/sill scraped and dented by that one idiot that turned too early and too sharply when reversing out of a space

Not so, on my camera it registers the shock and preserves the 3 minutes of video around the incident.
It does the same even if you brake hard, and there is a button that can be pressed to lock a file too.

I don't know if this Lidl one has a G-Sensor, but a 32GB recording is not the limiting factor.

You cannot rely on a G sensor for a hit in a car park. Chances are the force from the impact won't be enough to wake up the camera, yet will still be enough to scrape and dent the car.

I'm very dense when it comes to modern technology so excuse my ignorance; does this device record while the car is parked on my driveway? I would like to know if some of the pesky kids from my street are responsible for the scatches on my car.

Mobius actioncam. Can't fault them, both work perfectly for 24/7 and support 128gb

If you want parking protection two lens is the absolute minimum and I would have thought that two days isn't really enough recording time, I know my father has only discovered some scratch marks and other minor damage when he has cleaned his car, so could have happened any time in the previous week. The worst was a very deep, but narrow dent in his last car's bonnet, we couldn't figure what had been used on it, although I did wonder if someone had shot a ball bearing gun at him overhead from a bridge.

This is what people have been talking to me about (in ignorance)
In my opinion it wouldn't be a good camera to use continuously as it can't use a big memory card. By the time you notice the scratch, the recording will be overwritten.
Look for a möbius actioncam. They are very good and take much larger memory cards. Their small size makes them discreet too.

I agree with you as it depends how much you check your car. If you only check it in detail when it is cleaned then you'll only spot massively obvious dents and scrapes and miss the smaller scuffs & scratches. As a victim of a hit + run driver who kindly stoved in my rear door (needing me to source a new door) - i wouldn't be without now.

2 cameras won't cover absolutely everything but will cover the majority of the car. You only need to be able to see the car driving away after they have hit the car - which is highly likely they will leave from either the front or rear direction of the car. Like I say, it's better than nothing at all.

Another vote for the gw1h had mine since 2014 and never gone wrong once, crystal clear picture.
Cost about 35 quid from bangood with English menus. Agree that the range of quality on these cams can be massively variable but you can get great ones for under £40 for sure!
