Here is a test video from my eBay camera . . . "HD Car Cam" bought off eBay for $23.79 shipped - Advertised as a 1280 x 960 HD camers - Setting show it is only a VGA 640 - seller gave me a $15 rebate so not a bad $9 camera - still need an HD camera though . . . I like the quality of yours so much more . . . It looks like there's a UFO in the sky following me, but it just seems to black out or burnout the direct sun where ever it is . . . This was shot early March in the early morning so a bit of sun to deal with . . . Suction cup mount worked great on my windshield . . .

This is it - Looks like they changed the listing a bit to take out the 1280 reference in the title since my purchase:

And this it what the video looks like (sorry about the sound - radio plus pipes=distortion!):

Stay tuned (or just tune there dierct) to the last 30 seconds - I turn the radio off and listen to the new Tri Ovals!

Those cheap cameras, if they are small enough, are good 'security / insurance' cameras. Some of them even have a 'loop' feature where it'll record the last X hours onto the memory card. You can then permanently mount it and power it from the vehicle. Then, should you ever get into an accident that's not your fault, you've got pretty solid evidence. (It's popular in Russia, evidently insurance fraud is a big issue there; things like people jumping ontop of cars at stop lights and then claiming they were hit)

Unfortunately to get decent 'shareable' footage, you've gotta spend a little bit. I do wish there were more, decent cameras in the sub $100 range. For one, I could afford to mount a couple on my bike for extra angles!

This one has the looping function - but I wouldn't want to permanently mount it - not H2O proof and it does look goofy hanging on the windshield . . . Waiting to get stopped because someone thinks its a radar detector (they are still illegal in VA).

Hi Napom
That's a great video especially for a $9 camera! Thank you for sharing it.
Can you post the details of the camera since the eBay post has been removed
