5.0 out of 5 starsEasy to install with great record quality
Reviewed in Australia on 26 June 2019
I was eager to install a dash cam as I almost had an accident when a car dash out in a T junction in front of me. I installed it as soon as I received it.
Quality: -Lightweight -Easy to install -Large lens for low light recording -Clip-on design, easy removal of the camera without detaching the suction cup.
Operation: -The menu is easy to navigate without the need to look up user manual. -Build in timestamp for accident track. -Able to set the Car Plate number watermark on the video, in the event, there are multiple recording SDs from different vehicles. (I have to mask off my number plate for privacy purpose)
The low light recording is good when there are more light sources around, e.g. traffic junction, near the shops, where most of the accidents happen. During the day, almost all dash cam can record clearly as long as the front window is clean. For this reason, the dash cam should be installed behind the area where the windshield wipers can clean.
1.0 out of 5 starsLoop recording, technical support
Reviewed in Australia on 14 November 2019
Loop recording is limited to 1,2 and 5 minutes, need to format the sad card every fortnight, shut down half way trough the recording, Technical department no help at all, not solve the fault, only advice they gave is don't use certain features in the camera, I don't buy again, picture quality is great,
The video quality on this is brilliant for such a cheap dash cam. Wasn't sure what to expect as it's not a well known brand like some others but suitably impressed. Hooked it up in the office to have a play about with the setting (it comes with a USB cable as well as the car charging cable). Easy to use and set up and now nicely mounted in the middle of my windscreen. As it is such a small device, it's not intrusive into my view while driving but the screen takes up the full back of the device so you can still see clear images when you check playback on it. Uploaded a few videos to my pc this morning and the images are very clear and most importantly, should I ever need to I can see number plates easily!
Not having owned a dash cam before I looked on Amazon for highly rated products at a resonable price. This APEMAN dash cam has glowing revew for a reason - it is very well priced, easy to install, and produces very good imagequality. There is both a powerful suction mount and stick on windshield mount included together with a generous power cable that plugs in to the 'cigarette lighter' type power sockets.
The rear screen and menu system is dated but that does not affect the imagequality when viewed on a PC. I have a simple need of the camera - when I turn on the ignition it begins recording, when I turn off ignition it stops recording - it does this as required. I also have the screen darken after about a minute so it does not distract whilst driving (there is still a small LED that blinks showing it is recording but this is not distracting for me)
I purchased this together with a 64GB micro sd card which it has no issue in using.
I really liked this dash camera for the quality of the image. It is surprisingly clear especially at night, even when I'm driving down a dark Highway,I can still see the number plate of a car 10m away. I also like how long the 2 cables comes with it are. They extend all the way across from the dash, down to any outlet in the car. I'm very happy with this purchase. I bought 3 and all are fine, and customer service is great.
Very easy to install! I like the suction mount with a twist to secure feature. it is very handy to adjust. Very nice imagequality with a big screen. Much better than my previous one ($150 above)! I like it.
I’m loving to have this dash cam as I drive a lot for work. I had one before but wasn’t great as this one. It got excellent view and clear as. The quality of image is very high quality . It doesn’t blur at anytime. Video quality is amazing too. The good thing is that it’s easy to setup on the screen. I like it’s good qualityimage .
The imagequality is pretty good at night. The camera does not have night vision, but make up with the WDR, HDR features. (Note: make sure the inside of your windshield is clean, unlike mine.)
The dash camera was very neatly packaged. Very slink design with the black matte finish. No over-complicated glossy design, this is what a dash camera should look like. It has a nice 3' in display screen, it's not a touch screen but it's nice to have a big screen to navigate the menus.
The instructions are pretty simple, also in multiple languages. The cables included are long enough to run around the car neatly. The included charging cable has a built-in USB charging port, which great if you only have one cigarette lighter receptacle.
There are two different types of mounts included (1) is a suction cup the other is a sticky pad. Suction cup mount has two adjustments nobs which are very easy to use to get the correct angle. The suction mount has a twist to secure feature I like when locking the suction cup in place.
The menu is easy to navigate, tons of great features built-into this camera like motion detection, seamless loop recording and parking monitor.
It took me about 15 minutes to install and run the cabling through the car.
Great little dash camera!!
Note: Amazon's video upload quality is terrible. Video samples can be on found YT. The video does not reflect the quality that the dash camera records, its very high res and smooth.
Pros: - Good videos with "G detection" - No frills simple functionality for a good price - Solid build, compact package that doesn't obstruct your vision - Easy to setup with nice long USB cable - The imagequality is pretty good at night. Room for improvement: - The camera does not have night vision, but make up with the WDR, HDR features. - The suction mount pivot doesn't lock, so it's possible for the camera to "yaw" out of position if the cord is yanked. Consider making this lockable.
Overall It's a good quality cam with great video quality. It’s a great quality cam. It was easy to install with simple instructions. the camera turns automatically when the car starts, the screen is clear and the recording clarity is amazing. Highly recommend!
Youngest daughter wants to start borrowing our car, I thought getting her own Dashcam will make it safer for her and a piece of mind for my self!
This 1080P dash cam comes with everything needed except an SD card. It comes with the suction mount charger and a very well detailed manual which is nice to see. Having a wide-angle is helpful to see the whole road can even see lanes beside us if driving in the middle lane. It has all the good features like motion detection and HDR. The HDR gets the pictures looking natural bright and a balanced image. It also comes with a G-sensor in case any accidents happen. Has the features I wanted in a dashcam.
Apeman support was quick to reply to the question I had about the product and very helpful. The dashcam itself was packaged very adequately with no way it to move around in the box.
My family has dash cams in their vehicles, where I am from if you has a dashcam and in a car accident the person with the best footage and proof of who's at fault will help in investigating.
Will survive the harsh winters and summers in Canada, was glad at how quickly the shipping was and impressed with the quality of this camera. The picture quality once uploaded to my laptop looks clear and bright just make sure to take the plastic off to ensure this. With most dash cams you will have to keep it plugged into a power source to use. It has a good length in the cable so we took the time to hide the cable and now can't even tell cable connected.
It's the perfect size as legally it can't take up too much room or could become a hazard, one thing to note is make sure to get a good memory card class 10 or else it won't work correctly.
