Mischief Dashcam Test - Black Box G1W

I put together a quality test video of the Black Box G1W dashcam that I purchased 6 months ago off Amazon for $50. We brought it along on several Mischief adventures and it’s been very reliable. The footage in the test video is straight from the camera; no color correction and no filters added. Enjoy! - Dustin

REVIEW:

I purchased the “Black Box G1W” HD dashcam off Amazon for around $50. I wanted one for insurance purposes especially after years of watch Russian dashcam videos. I’m very impressed of the quality of the HD video during the day. On country roads at night, the footage is just okay. The “LED Night Vision” just shines lights on the windshield and is pretty useless.

The G1W plugs into the cigarette lighter and turns on and starts records as soon as I start the car. I didn’t hardwire this dashcam because we used it in several different vehicles over the last 6 months. It records to a micro SD card. I can get 6hrs of HD footage with a 32GB class 4 card. After the card is full, it automatically overwrites the oldest footage. I have it recording in 3min increments. You can lock clips if you want to save certain ones. There’s some type of bug in my G1W that locks/saves random clips, which takes up space on the SD card.

Price has gone up $20 in the last few months. There are also newer versions. Amazon ratings are pretty good. More info about the product here:
