I am getting one of these:
which comes from eBay and costs the princely sum of £22.95 with free postage. It's got some good features, too:
- runs off a battery and a 12v charger
- records in chunks, choice of 2, 5 or 15 minutes
- automatically over-writes the oldest file when the SC card is full
- powers on with the car ignition
- IR illumination for night recording
- time and date stamp on recordings
- motion detection, which might be interesting filming the wildlife that visits the garden overnight
- will support an SD card up to 32GB.
And it is shipped from Pontypridd by a UK seller, not shipped from a warehouse in an industrial estate off the M25 by a seller in China. Pontypridd is almost local.
It should arrive in a few days. I will let you know how I get on.
