I have the G1WH. It's not fancy, but it records 1080p video on a loop to a MicroSD and it's only $50. I suggest the rear view mirror stem mount, the suction cup mount that comes with it is slightly shitty.

u/JoffreyDiesS04E02 · 8 pointsr/ImageStabilization

I got myself a dash cam for situations like these. Nothing has happened to me yet but when it does I'll be glad I have a dash cam.

This is the one I bought: It records crystal clear and super smooth 1080p video, and turns on and off with the car.

u/Wagnel · 7 pointsr/Austin

I know this won't help for your current situation, but consider getting a dash cam. Here's a reasonable one for ~$60.

u/AtlUtdGold · 7 pointsr/Atlanta

I used the G1W-H($54.99) to take this video of a meteor I made a thread about over ago now. Basically the most recommended camera in the price range at the time and I've been happy with it. I did buy a different mount that I could cling it to my rear view mirror.

u/Al_Tilly_the_Bum · 6 pointsr/SaltLakeCity

I guess installed is a strong word for "attached to my windshield with a suction cup." I got this camera which is pretty cheap and the video is good quality. There are some minor issues as noted in some reviews but it is a great deal IMO

u/drdrdrdrdr_and_dr · 5 pointsr/triangle

I have the Black Box dashcam that I got off Amazon. Got a 32gig microUSB for it and I plug it into the cig lighter (also plugs into USB). It turns on/off with ignition, but you could probably hardwire it into your map lights or right to the battery if you wanted.

u/dcux · 4 pointsr/washingtondc

The G1W with a 16gb card. I'd probably opt for the 32gb in the future, but if it's just for accidents only and not youtube posting, 8gb should be fine.


I'd probably get the G1WH if I were buying today (wider angle, black bezel, tho I painted the bezels on mine with matte black paint):

u/raabco · 3 pointsr/Roadcam

YouTube compression even crushed some of the quality. It's a G1W-H, bought from here, took less than 2 weeks for delivery. I'd highly recommend it for the price.

u/Daenks · 3 pointsr/houston

For a recommendation, I bought two of these last year after someone intentionally rammed my vehicle several times on the gulf freeway because I would not let him cut me off. they have proved invaluable since. i wish there was a way i could submit dash cam footage with a police report easily.

I had my mechanic run the usb power to the car's battery so when i start the car the cameras start (cost me $30 to have this done). I have one in the front and one in the back. They are wide angle lenses so they capture quite a bit; and they have accelerometers that will write-lock a section of footage when an "incident" occurs.

my only qualm is that the quality could be better; but license plates and faces come out just fine.

u/kraze1994 · 3 pointsr/videos

G1W-H is a great starting point in dash cams.

u/Jack_Attak · 3 pointsr/kansascity

Weird. I've bought four G1W-H cameras and all of them work perfectly with no gaps between files. Are you sure that you got a legitimate camera? There are a lot of knock-offs.

u/blueshiftlabs · 3 pointsr/news

G1W-H, or if you're in a place that gets really hot and you don't want to deal with batteries exploding, G1W-C.

u/basketcase77 · 2 pointsr/subaru

I bought one a couple months ago and I love it. I've actually recorded one accident at an intersection already (luckily not my own) and was able to offer the footage to those involved and the police if they needed it. After doing some research I heard a lot of good things about the G1W. There are knockoffs, but the one I got from "Black Box" on amazon appears to be legit. I got the "stealth" one as well for less glare from it. Here's the links to everything you need it you want to pick up a good one for a good price:

If you've got prime (which you should because it's fuckin awesome. Seriously get it or find a friend with it and get on theirs) then this whole setup almost exactly a hundred bucks and you're all set to go.

PS, great car, how long have you had her? Sorry to see the damage.

u/Ragoczy · 2 pointsr/uberdrivers

I second the dashcam -- a decent one is less than $50 ( Get two SD cards and swap them after anything hinky or questionable happens so you don't lose the record. It'll also give you some protection if you're in an accident and not at fault. No he-said/she-said about the color the light was if you have video.

u/bapsteks · 2 pointsr/CarTalkUK

A lot of people I know are using this one

It's £25 and is packed full of features :)

u/Shadowhawk109 · 2 pointsr/CFB

My buddy has this and recommends it.

Says that there's lots of counterfeits, and to check /r/dashcam for sellers.

Of course there's a subreddit for that.

u/wireke · 2 pointsr/belgium Best dashcam under 100 euro. You can order it at

Well that was quite the word vomit from the Amazon app.

Seriously though. I have it. Got it based on recommendations from other users here.

u/ConstantRevolution · 1 pointr/gifs

This is the one I have- it's $60- but well worth it.

u/danielsamuels · 1 pointr/WTF

I use one of these and it works perfectly. Example videos can be found on my dashcam YouTube channel (not the cycling ones though!).

u/Mu4dD1b · 1 pointr/videos

I went with this [one] (, it has served me well for two years. It comes recommended on

u/DamienJaxx · 1 pointr/Columbus

It was cheaper, but it's gone up in price. Night time quality is great, looks just like what you'd see out the window pretty much.

u/MayoFetish · 1 pointr/videos

This one has lasted me 2 years. Get a 32gb memory stick and you should get 5+hours of 1080p video.

u/ShawnS4363 · 1 pointr/subaru

The G1WH is pretty popular also.

u/Narutofloss · 1 pointr/videos

I have this one. Apparently it's the same ones that the russians use in all their cars. It got good reviews. It's the upgraded version of this reviewed one and it's matt-black so it's easily hidden. Great deal for $70.

u/flyingwolf · 1 pointr/videos

It was a cheap 50 dollar one from Amazon.

I just tossed a cheap 32 gig SD card in it. It sits behind my mirror, is always on and has worked perfectly.

u/boathole · 1 pointr/legaladvice

The G1W has an updated model available, the G1w-H, but you can't go wrong with either of them. (Mine works so well, I'm seriously considering getting one for the rear window too).

u/McDuble · 1 pointr/Dashcam

if you have this mount, it works just fine for civics:

its the ones in this picture that does not point far enough down:

if you look at the different pictures, they have two different mounts featured. one has the ball mount on the swivel connector, one has the ball on the arm connected to the cup (the one that does not work). the one that did not work is in this video of mine:

you can see in that video, the ball is on the main arm, not the part that swivels. the "nut" and fat connector does not go far back enough on the end of the ball.

u/PopSmokeAndGTFO · 1 pointr/Dashcam

I've only had mine for a few weeks, but I love it so far. I purchased mine as an upgrade from a [G1W] ( I had before. I'm not too knowledgeable on specs and whatnot, But I wanted something reliable that wouldn't break the bank. The reviews were good, the price was right and it serves my purpose perfectly. I hardwired mine and it sits up and out of the way but within arms reach if I need to snap a picture for any reason. [Here] ( it is if you're interested. I can also upload couple of clips when I get home if you'd like. Cheers!!

u/Youshotahostage · 1 pointr/cars

I know the differences, but what's the major benefit? Just that a capacitor holds a charge more efficiently than a battery over time?

I'm not overly familiar with tech stuff like this, but that seems like a steal for inertial recording and night vision.

u/Plavonica · 1 pointr/Bad_Cop_No_Donut

Try this one out. It even has a great review.

u/Hero-Requests · 1 pointr/Dashcam

This one correct?

I have 2 of these and none experiencing the focus problem. Everything is clear as day. Might need to contact them for warranty or exchange it from your vendor.
