Are there any always-on cameras that can actually record 14+ hour days?

    I'm thinking about starting a website where I can upload short clips of Darwin-Tards doing stupid road tricks, but I don't want to be trying to manually trigger a camera when I need to be watching what the Tards are doing.

    Any suggestions?

    Most dashcams use microSD cards to record. They make 1tb cards now and they arent that expensive. You just need to make sure the camera supports such a large size and set the resolution below max and you can probably get a week or two of continuous footage

    My dashcam supports a 256 gig microSD card, which is what I have in it. I keep it at its highest resolution and it keeps about a weeks worth off drive time before it starts recording over the older video. I turn my camera on when I do my pretrip and turn it off when I do my post trip. Inbetween it stays on, even if I'm just sitting in a dock waiting.

    +1 on the Dash Cam 46 by Garmin. It's small and records very good video and stills. Plus, its voice activated. I've had mine over a year and still going strong. Nice feature is also the app and you can scan through video and pictures on your phone.
     
    Farmerbob1 Thanks this.

    What dash cam do you use, if you don't mind me asking?
