The daily commute to the office may not make for the most interesting of videos, but this could be fun for a spirited drive through a mountain pass. Or, you know, if you’re driving through an interesting town and you want to document the whole adventure. That appears to be the idea behind the Cam Cam Voyager.
This camcorder clamps onto your car visor and it can record the entirety of your driving trip at an impressive 720 x 480 pixel resolution. That’s not HD, but it is wider than a standard 4:3 aspect ratio. Strangely, it’s not really 16:9 either, fitting somewhere in between at a 3:2 aspect ratio.
If you insert a 32GB SD card, the Cam Cam Voyager dash camcorder can record up to 48 hours of driving run. Power comes by way of your car’s cigarette jack (12V port), so you don’t have to worry about running out of battery either.
You don’t have to concern yourself with filtering through loads and loads of footage, since the clips are automatically made into 15-minute segments. When the card gets full, the oldest clip is automatically deleted to make room for a new one.
I’m thinking that the average consumer won’t really need something like this, but commercial vehicles could find some value here if only for insurance and liability issues. Look to Brickhouse Security to find the Cam Cam Voyager for $299.95.
