EdgeCameras Action Cams

EdgeCameras today revealed a series of new cameras made just for drivers and riders wanting to capture their travels in digital form. Every system includes an NTSC-resolution tube camera as well as a small DVR unit that records footage to SD cards; owners can also send media directly to a computer through a USB cable. Multiple systems also include custom mounts or storage, EdgeCameras says. While the basic EdgeCam100 sports basic attachments and is intended to record solely to Archos jukeboxes and other portable media players, the company also produces the EdgeCam 1000 with a crush-resistant and watertight shell for bikes and other off-road vehicles. A 1GB SD card is also included to record without relying on bulkier and shock-prone devices.

Two more specialized versions have also been introduced, according to the company. The RallyCam 2000, is focused on cars with at least two cameras for recording all aspects of a drive or a race. Crews can also record using picture-in-picture and patch in the audio feed from a cockpit radio in professional racing.

Shipping today, the line ranges in cost from $150 for the basic EdgeCam100 to $1,000 for the RallyCam edition. Every model also has the choice of flat, rollbar, or UBolt connections and can be custom-ordered in some cases with higher-resolution (520-line) cameras plus SD cards with up to 4GB of storage.

    My Nissan Sentra 1.8s got one of this when I purchased it... It's the special edition! I love the package of the nissan sentra parts that it comes with (spoiler, alloy wheels, 300 watt stereo system with sub). Gas mileage is okay (25 mpg according to the trip computer). I hope it gets better as I use the car more. I love the charcoal interior because it looks sporty. Unfortunately, they use cheap plastic which makes it uncomfortable- the hard plastic on the middle arm rest and door handles hurt my elbows.

    My nissan dealership gives bad service. When I went in to get the creaking sound checked, the mech. who was test driving it drove my car hard. He'd floor it everytime after he would come to a stop. It also took 3 hours to get it fixed!!! He told me it would take only 1 1/2 hours at most! It's okay i guess since it's fixed now.

    I love this car because I'm only 18 and I got it brand new. We got a good deal on it (i think). With taxes and all, it came up to $17, 500. To be honest, I wanted an '06 civic coupe, but its too expensive and I wouldn't have gotten the same features in it that the sentra has for the money.
