After reviewing the F770 we think it’s the better dual channel parking camera compared to the Blackvue DR650GW for most drivers. See our video here first:

The $100 Viofo A119 is now my top budget camera pick . Great video quality, notifications, capacitors and stealthiness. The new gold standard. See our review here:


#1 – XiaoYi Yi – $60
The cheapest WiFi, rotating camera we recommend. Good reliability but it has a lithium ion battery so don’t use it in hot environments. Our Review:

Get it:
Amazon (USA) :
NCIX Canada :
Amazon (UK) :
GeekBuying (INTL):

#2 Transcend 200 – $100 – For drivers in hot and humid environments who are on a budget and need something reliable. If not, look at the Yi or the A119 instead. Our Review:

Get It – Tape Version Recommended
Amazon USA –
Amazon CAN –
Amazon UK –

#3 Blackvue DR650GW-2CH – $350

Update: Nov 24th
The Thinkware F770 is the better pick for most drivers. See our review here:

#4 G1W – $40 – No longer recommended. There are good sellers but we think the A118C is a better buy for most drivers.

#5 A118-C – $50
The original version purchased overseas is still the cheapest for $50. We think this is the cheapest camera you should purchase. There are counterfeits, you want the Viofo model. Our Review:

Orignal A118 from eBay:

Updated A118C2 model – $80
Right now it’s overpriced and the A119 is better but if you’re looking to get it here’s a few links:

Amazon USA: (OCDTronic)

Make sure you pick the right SD card – cheaper cameras wear out faster in dash cameras (especially Sandisk Ultra!). See our guide:
