The first things you notice about the PC202 when you take it out of the box is just how small and light this thing is. It definitely has more than a hint of GoPro about it and that’s certainly not a bad thing. Such a compact design clearly has it’s advantages too, as the device is very discreet and tucks very neatly behind the rear view mirror in most vehicles. In this regard, it’s probably one of the neatest solutions available for a traditional form factor dash cam, assuming you also hard wire it of course.
PC202 is also able to capture still images in the event of an accident, and also has an inbuilt g-sensor to automatically lock files in the event of an accident. The device supports a Micro SD card of up to 32GB in size should the user want to upgrade from the included 8GB card, and the inbuilt battery will power the camera for 20 minutes, should it be disconnected from the power supply.
Video quality from the ProofCam PC202 is excellent, especially given its price. The dash camera produces nice, sharp full HD videos that, while clearly not as good as a high end dash cam, are more than adequate for producing quality evidence in the event of an incident. If anything, I would say that recorded audio seems a little quiet, but it’s more than good enough. Check out our example footage below and see what you think:
- The camera has a 2.0 mega pixel lens and a large 2″ LCD screen for easy viewing
- It has a 110 degree wide angle lens to cover as much of the road as possible
- The camera is supplied with a FREE 8GB Micro SD Card
- Inside the box is an in-car charger, a suction pad, an instruction manual and the camera.
The ProofCam PC202 does exactly what it says on the tin, and it does it well. For a sensible chunk of change you get a simple, compact yet very effective dash cam that will be an invaluable eye witness should anything happen behind the wheel. While it may be lacking in features, it gets the basics right, and its small, discreet design is sure to win some fans. If you’re looking for a good dash cam that doesn’t cost the earth, we highly recommend giving the PC202 a look.
