Car cameras - small RTV equipment efficiently recording image and sound, which documents what is happening on the road, so we have the opportunity to clarify the disputed situation, e.g. during a collision, accident, or when we want to offer our help as an event witness . The driving recorder can record all the important moments of our private journey, but it is also often used in companies - to control employees' business trips. Many users of driving video recorders claim that the rear camera (also known as the reversing camera), which is mounted on the rear window, is useful. We adjust car cameras to our needs and requirements. These devices have various options, e.g. Full HD 1080p recording, night mode, wide viewing angle, smaller or larger screen diagonal. The car recorder is often sold in a set with a reversing camera. The storage medium of the video recorder is usually memory cards.
Is the use of car cameras legal?
After the introduction of the provisions of the Regulation on the Protection of Personal Data (abbreviated to the GDPR), many car camera users wondered whether a car recorder is a legal tool. Polish regulations do not prohibit the use of recordings to obtain evidence - e.g. to use them when examining insurance matters or to pass them on to police or other services. The law does not provide for penalties for people who do not benefit from such recordings and who use car cameras for personal purposes - e.g. for their own safety. The use of car cameras in our country will not cause us any trouble and will be helpful if we use them in appropriate circumstances and we will not make material from recordings publicly available. Let us remember that in other countries it may be different, e.g. in Austria we may be punished for simply installing the webcam behind the glass, so before traveling to another country it is worth checking whether the use of driving recorders mounted in our vehicles is accepted and complies with the law.
What to look for when buying?
When deciding to buy a car camera, first of all we pay attention to the fact that the image is clear, that the route is recorded accurately, which will help the services identify the perpetrators of a possible collision. Camera accessories can improve our recording. It is currently assumed that the minimum value is HD 720p (HD camera), but certainly Full HD 1080p will be the better choice. Video recorders are available on the market, where the maximum resolution is 4K, but you need to pay attention to the fact that you will need a large capacity of our memory card. The next important element of a car camera is the angle of view, the wider the angle of view, the better, because we can then record both lanes. Another function is the night mode. It is worth that the image from our camera was accurate at night, and the camera itself was resistant to car lights or street lighting. Let's pay attention to the next element - the sound. The movie recording function with sound is not included in the standard equipment of car cameras. When choosing a driving recorder, make sure it has such a function. It is also worth thinking about the display of our car camera, a screen size of 2-3 inches is enough. Reversing cameras - many manufacturers also offer customers a reversing camera in the set with a video recorder, which will significantly facilitate parking - we will see what we will not see in the mirrors. Many car users who bought such a set confirmed that it is worth having a reversing camera, road maneuvers have become much easier, and comfort and driving safety have increased. While driving, the reversing camera does not require memory cards. Driving recorder (video recorder mio mivue) can be equipped with a USB connector, to which we connect a laptop.
