What is Camera journey?
The Camera journey is also known as the “Black Box Car”, a smart device capable of recording all sound and images in the process that you drive on the road.
What type of dashcam?
Currently there are many ways to classify the dashcam, but based on the means of transportation, we will divide the dashcam into two categories:
Journey camera for 4-wheel vehicles: cars
Dashcam for two-wheelers: motorbikes and motorcycles (usually mounted on helmets)
Benefits that journey camera bring
With the images and audio recorded and stored by the dash cam, it will be extremely important evidence to help road users protect their legitimate rights, especially when accident situations occur.
Advice on choosing the best journey camera
A. Lens rotation angle
According to many consumers, the actual angle of rotation of some existing products on the market is much different from the specifications that the manufacturer has given.
So you also need to pay attention to this issue, a cruise camera is appreciated when and only if it can give the most detailed images during recording, in which the lens rotation angle takes The role is extremely important, so to ensure the quality, you should choose wide angles of rotation at 120 – 170 degrees or more.
B. Resolution of photos and videos
The video quality and resolution are directly proportional to each other, so the video quality of high or low dashcams depends entirely on the resolution.
C. Power supply
There are currently two main sources of supply for dashcams: regular and autonomous.
– Regular power supply: will normally be supported via Cigar portal.
– Autonomous power supply: is a device that supports the Battery, with the characteristics of continuous operation, so the life of the battery is usually not high, not to mention some unsafe battery drain phenomenon that you encounter quite a lot trouble, so you have to pay attention to this.
So which power source to choose now?
As far as we can see, current dash cams prefer to use regular power through the car’s Cigar port, but because of the peculiarities of the dash cams. So I think you should choose one that supports both : regular power and autonomy.
D. Video port number
Compared to before, the new product line is supported up to 2 camera ports. One port for panoramic view and one for monitoring, can be installed on either side of the vehicle, behind or the cockpit.
E. Support features
In the high-end product line, many useful features will be integrated, in which the warning of speed when cars or motorbikes go into the speed limit roads is the feature that we feel is the best in the dashcam.
This feature will recognize signs on either side of the road and at the same time give necessary alerts to drivers during travel.
In addition, with the parking camera for cars, the parking recording feature will help you quite a lot, this feature will record collisions, or people who are intentionally sabotaging when the car is parked.
Also with GPS positioning helps the camera record the route the vehicle has traveled, this is really extremely interesting when we can review the places we have traveled.
F. Software for analysis
This software is only available in newer cameras, it assists us in video analysis, statistics and summarizing the routes, time or speed that the vehicle has.
G. Memory card capacity supported
We all want to choose a high-resolution dashcam, but keep in mind that the higher the resolution, the larger the video will be, so when choosing, take care of it. How much memory card does the camera support?
To ensure the storage of high quality videos, no jerky, when watching, you should choose cameras with a memory card capacity from 4G-64G, the dashcam has auto-delete or overwrite mode when the memory card capacity is full.
H. Easy to use
Simple design, easy to use is what everyone wants. Therefore, the camera you choose must ensure a simple button system, easy to operate.
Journey camera products now have an average warranty period of about 12 months, the higher-end models can cover up to 2, 3 years.

The current consumer market is at an alarming level with the status of fake and low-quality counterfeit goods with a variety of designs similar to genuine products. So choosing those with clear origins, from reputable brands is essential.
Most current dashcams originate mainly from Taiwan and Korea, and a few come from Japan and the United States.
