Small, portable, and inexpensive video camera recommendations for use in a moving car
Jan 18, 2013

I am considering the purchase of a video camera for my car. The unit will be mounted to a bracket inside the vehicle facing out of the front or rear window. The video will be downloaded to a PC and viewed later. Ideally the camera would capture 60 minutes. Zooming, viewing while recording, great color, and high resolution are not required. Price limit is around $300 US. I know something about the technical specs of DSLRs, but not video cameras. Can anyone recommend a camera, tell me if my expectations are realistic, etc.?
