While buying the dashboard camera, you need something with wide filed-of-view so that it captures the movement of wider area. While the front facing or one-channel systems are most common, many wish to go with the two-channel and four-channel system that covers the front, rear and two sides of the vehicle.

  • Frame Rate

You don’t need motion blur while your car is speeding up on the highway because in this way the device will keep on skipping frames in regular interval. Go with the cameras with higher frame rates like 30 fps or 60 fps for not missing one single moment.
