This camera looks like it would suit my needs better. I don't need a screen, its cheaper, and more more stealth.

Mobius Camera - The 1080p Action Cam, Dash-Cam, Anything Cam - Full review (with samples). - YouTube
The quality on the 808 is fairly shitty. You dont see anything in the dark, does horribly in switching lights (shadows), etc. Long story short if u get hit, you wont see a license plate even on teh best quality. My main issue with it being used for a dash cam is that theres no auto on/over write feature.

Eh, I doubt I'll be looking for a license plate in an accident. Don't expect CSI-like quality from any dashcam. The mobius does support loop recording (auto-deletion/overwrite) and the light switching seems pretty good to me (not as good as my gopro3 black - but for 80? fuggitaboudit).

Watch the review - the older 808's, yeah, I can understand - but they spent some time making the mobius better.

Here' a (lengthy) review with some footage

If you're going to go with an 80some bucks cam why not spend the extra 10-15 bucks and go with the one Wes posted above?

I really want to get one of the Mobius cameras to put on my quadcopter... (prebuilt china deal... gotta play with it before I put more money in).

Was that the same one in the techmoan review because that one seemed to have good definition and good light/dark transitioning. And I think it has auto on/off when plugged into a car charger.

I'm not going to bother posting any YT videos... with the availability of 1080p with full GPS integration and decent night capability in the sub-$100 pricerange in the current small-form-factors, there is no reason to consider the DVR-XX7 series. At 720p, there just isn't enough resolution to make out license plates farther away than stopped-in-front-of-you-in-traffic. Facial recognition is plenty good enough at distances you'll need it, and the general recording is more than adequate. Still have yet to evaluate at night.

As I mentioned before, this industry is primed to explode, and the tech is going to undergo generations of improvements in very short timeframe.

If you wanna buy now, I think the Mini-0801 is a good bet for $$$vs.performance. You can certainly get a lot more for more money. Don't forget rear-facing (out the back window)... this is where a Mobius might make a lot of sense.

These cameras will only get smaller, more capable, better resolution, and cheaper... and I think it will happen rather quickly.
