I like where your going I'm also always looking for a better camera solution as well. I came across this thread at mp3car it's a few pages. I like what he has it's a little rough but maybe with better cameras it could do the trick.Not sure how I'd set these up, but there are finally some 1080p capable cameras out.
That's what it looks like. Hopefully it is not F as that would not work for WI. It also says it doesn't record in HD... Why must this be so difficult?!Did I read the specs on the DVR correctly? "Operating Temperature - 0F-45F" Wondering if they meant 45C instead.
With computer cameras, I've noticed they use a lot of processing power.
Perhaps, but from what I've seen with my Microsoft LifeCam Cinema 720p HD Webcam, my computer uses a lot of CPU processing. If you know of a USB webcam that doesn't take so much processing resources, I'm willing to listen.Damn, that's pricy. I'd probably go with a carpc and some high res USB web cams, personally.
A pair of yellow top batteries should work. Of course, it would be recommended to have a high output alternator to recharge the batteries.I like the cameras you just found. I was thinking use the IP cameras with a PC and the OBDII / GPS overlays from the thread I posted.
I haven't played with any IP cameras yet so I can't speak to there PC requirements but I agree with you on the processing power from webcams.
The video's that guy has posted are not smooth enough for me using webcams.
I would like to have a car PC/DVR with a removable hard drive with the captured video that could be swapped out. The only problem I see is having enough power for running any type of long term parking mode.
