Dunobil chrom duo
The leading line of the rating goes to the magnificent in all relationship DVR Chrom Duo from a German company Dunobil. Made in an elegant case, this device includes there are two cameras at once, due to which it can be used for needs parking: the benefit is that for this the device’s processor has built-in projection function of parking marks.
If we talk about the quality of shooting, then the main unit Chrom Duo provides recording in 1920×1080 resolution with a frequency of 30 frames per give me a sec. At the same time, visibility reaches 170 degrees – almost wide angle, which often saves drivers when controversial situations in an accident. The secondary camera, in turn, shoots on the same 30 frames per second, only in a resolution of 640×480 pixels – not enough, but enough to park a car. Plus build is that it can work at temperatures up to -30 degrees Celsius, causing the possibility of application in regions of Siberia. Ultimately Dunobil Chrom Duo Introduces a great device, the appearance and technical whose characteristics more than beat off the price tag.

- projection of parking marks when using the complete auxiliary camera;
- operating temperature up to -30 degrees Celsius;

Artway AV-390 Super Night Vision
Artway dashcam stopped a step from the rating leader AV-390 – the best, in our opinion, in the quality of night shooting from all devices worth up to 5000 rubles. Manufacturers allowed an experiment on the CMOS-matrix and the camera as a whole, playing on a significant improvement in video capture in the dark … and how It turned out not lost. 3 megapixel hybrid system and built-in LED-backlight gave a stunning result in terms of video quality, complementing the already “powerful” FullHD-shooting on 30 frames per second. In parallel with this, the AV-390 was integrated and a new lens with a viewing angle of 170 degrees. In fact, the video reflected a full scan of the situation on the road – more than the driver sees when driving means.
Despite the fact that everything looks great (even the system received (in addition to motion and shock sensors) an additional set functions – SOS and WDR), Artway made one small miscalculation, which lies in the narrow working range parameter temperature. The threshold of -10 degrees is overcome practically in all regions of Russia, in connection with which the use of the AV-390 receives strict restriction.
- excellent quality of shooting in the dark;
- 3 megapixel CMOS sensor with a reduced tendency to the formation of noise in the picture;
- viewing angle of 170 degrees;
- the presence of additional system functions (SOS and WDR).
- small range of working temperatures (from -10 to +50 degrees Celsius).
Xiaomi YI Smart Dash Camera
Another Xiaomi spokesperson results in terms of shooting, even despite the very low price. Xiaomi YI Smart Dash Camera – the flagship budget model segment capable of recording video in SuperHD quality (2304×1296 pixels), while delivering a stable 30 frames per second. However, to increase the result by personnel, it is enough to reduce resolution up to 1080p, and enjoy ultra-clear picture with smoothness level of 60 frames.
In addition to a sharp increase in quality relative to younger models, YI Smart Dash Camera boasts a viewing angle of 165 degrees, inaccessible even to some premium models. Important in case with this DVR and the effect of the “beautiful little thing” with thoughtful design of the box and lens, as well as perforation for providing flow ventilation (above and below the housing, diagonals). And finally, a few words about camera connectivity via Wi-Fi. If in Xiaomi MiJia there were problems with localization, then YI was originally focused on the Russian market, in connection with which the Chinese We worked on the issue of translating the interface and the control program. The end result exceeded all expectations, and the DVR became Xiaomi’s valuable asset (along with smartphones).
- the ability to shoot in the resolution of 2304×1296 with 30 fps, or 1920×1080 with 60 fps;
- camera viewing angle is 165 degrees;
- well thought-out ventilation system (continuous, perforated cases above and below);
- full localization of the menu and the control program for a smartphone.
- not detected.
A fairly original DVR, which received high customer ratings for stylish looks and “hypertrophied” operating parameters. Unlike everyone below announced by the nominees, Playme MIDI supports video recording in SuperHD resolution – 2304×1296 pixels. This few non-standard selection due to the fact that manufacturers wanted highlight the device from the crowd of their own kind. Viewing angle amounted to 150 degrees, and the frame rate was kept at 30 per second.
Along with the beauty of the Playme’s MIDI case, it’s also surprising driver care features. It is expressed in the presence of LDWS alerts about safe driving, however, after some time begins annoying and even annoying. The base also has a G-sensor, and motion sensor – standard things even by the standards of budget DVRs. One of the main advantages of the model is the possibility of expanding memory up to 128 GB: this possibility is not neither those lower in the hierarchy nor those who one of the three best. Unique DVR, purchase which certainly should be considered.
- shooting in 1296p (Super HD-quality);
- expandable memory by setting Micro SD to 128 GB
- nice design, very compact camera;
- simplicity and reliability of use;
- able to tolerate temperatures up to -30 degrees Celsius.
- not found.
Widely publicized camera thanks to advertising at of many famous autobloggers, ranks fifth in our ranking line. CARCAM T3 – a device focused on simplicity use and reliability, including a large number of special sensors and convenient menu navigation. Thanks to failure From the button control, manufacturers were able to increase the display, equipping it with a sensor with fairly large control units (screen size is 3.5 inches). Recording is in the format Full HD at 30 frames per minute and with a viewing angle of 140 degrees.
Like all mid-budget models, the DVR CARCAM T3 features cyclic and continuous shooting capabilities, and in the first case, the user is not provided with any of choice – the video sequence is clearly divided into minute segments. For forest confidence that everything will fall into the frame, manufacturers integrated shock and motion sensors (G-sensor) and motion sensors, bringing the camera into operation when it enters the field of view of large objects or a sharp blow (acceleration). The finishing touch to characteristics of the model can be called the possibility of expanding memory up to 32 GB, which, as in the case of Artway AV-520 is averaged result.
- rejection of button control towards the sensor;
- the viewing angle is 140 degrees, and the video is written in resolution 1920×1080;
- the ability to connect an additional camera;
- motion and acceleration (shock) sensors are integrated into the camera.
- shooting in the dark.
DVR with good recommendations from users, ranked thanks to a very successful configuration and set of opportunities. The whole essence of the superiority of Artway AV-520 over the previous nominees is to have an additional camera and in asking price: by paying 3,000 rubles the consumer receives a device capable of providing visibility in several spatial positions, be it the lateral plane, the interior of the car or territory behind. The main camera of the model is being shot in Resolution 1920×1080 pixels with a frequency of 25 frames per second – necessary minimum for a comfortable perception of the picture. Angle the review at the same time is 120 degrees, which, albeit a little, but Again, it fits into the standards.
In general, Artway AV-520 seems to be so averaged DVR option, in which literally everything is verified in framework of standards. It supports microSD up to 32GB, cyclic recording capabilities (1, 2 and 5 minutes each) and night shooting (due to the presence of IR illumination). As a result: the device came out not bad, however, surprise with anything other than the second camera in the kit, alas, not capable of.
- two cameras included;
- low price;
- the ability to record video in Full HD;
- the presence of infrared illumination and shooting mode.
- rather “boring” model with averaged characteristics.
Xiaomi MiJia Car Driving Recorder Camera
Pretty interesting dvr from famous chinese manufacturer of mobile equipment, the cost of which is close approaching the “ceiling” of our rating. And, however, very not bad pay off, both in terms of functionality and appearance criteria.
Providing a viewing angle of an impressive 160 degrees, Xiaomi MiJia allows you to record video in the resolution of 1920×1080 and 1280×720 pixels, while supporting capture up to 30 and 60 frames per second respectively. For remote control of the shooting process and the ability to watch video in the device connection is provided via Wi-Fi, but full access can only be obtained when installing official software on a smartphone (or tablet). IN the camera has a built-in backlight system that allows you to receive high-quality image even at dusk and darkness. Perhaps, Xiaomi MiJia’s only truly serious flaw is consider the lack of official localization. Of course the situation corrected by installing the Russian language package from “folk craftsmen “, but this looks extremely damp and somewhat spoils the overall impression of using the DVR.
- nice design;
- the ability to record video in resolution up to 1920×1080 pixels
- high-quality shooting at night;
- camera control function when installed on a smartphone official software.
- lack of Russian localization.
Closes the eight best action camera LEXAND LR40, successfully converted for use as a DVR in vehicles. Its versatility is due to two factors: firstly, the quality of the resulting video and a set of functions great for capturing a traffic situation, and secondly, convenient mounting system and dimensions do not take up much space and do not interfere with the review.
The entire optical system LR40 is based on the use of a matrix 1 megapixel CMOS, which allows you to shoot Full HD video at standard 30 frames per second. In shooting mode, the same the camera provides the ability to get a high sharpness in 4K resolution. There is a built-in G-sensor, allowing you to activate recording on impact, as well as the function cyclic recording with automatic “unloading” of storage media (up to 32 GB). It’s also worth mentioning the night mode, activating backlight to get enough detail images – without it, the matrix could not even cope with filming at dusk, because resolution imposes a certain number quite strict restrictions.
- the ability to shoot video in a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels;
- 4K photo mode;
- cyclic recording, shock sensor and night mode filming;
- compact and lightweight camera with good mount.
- not the highest quality matrix (1 megapixel, CMOS);
- The camera is very sensitive to mechanical stress.
