    I'm interested in buying the NoPhoto for my car. I've also heard of the Pro DB system but looking at them I think the NoPhoto would fit better on my Mercedes E350 then the ProDB. So, my question is: Does this product work and will it last (looks like cheap plastic on the nophoto)? I would also like to know which system you think is better? I heard these systems only work on speed and red light cameras, no toll cameras. is this true?

    Anything you know would be helpful. Thanks, Guys

    Can you still even get the ProDB? I’m not sure if they’re still even around and I haven’t heard from them in ages.

    I’ve run and tested both and the noPhoto is better, most notably in the false filtering department.

    I tested one similar to that. It had virtually zero filtering so it falsed a ton and no safety features either so it could be a big hazard that could potentially start a fire, especially in case of an accident.

    This one has a different controller than the one I tested so it may be better, but the same style flash heads is what reminds me of that system.

    The sensor is right next to the flash head itself.

    Here's a pair of videos from 5 years ago now (whoa) where I was putzing around with another set of Chinese flash protectors with the same style flash heads.

    Do not buy chinese version it is a crap device.

    Prodb is a copy of an old US photoblocker version
    which is not effective against photo radar.

    If you want to buy a photo blocker take nophoto is the latest of all plus the filtering of falses

    ScorpionJ did you buy these and they didn't work? I just wish the nophoto was cheaper. It hurts paying $399 for a piece of plastic. If nophoto was only alittle cheaper.

    I have bought it the same as your link,but after a few tests one of two smoke and finaly fried.
    My opinion is don’t waste your time and money,speed cams have the tech to avoid photo blockers.
