The Polaroid C201 in car camera is a nice looking little unit which comes with almost everything you need to record your road trips.
As well as the C201 you also get a USB cable, in car charging cable, which is long enough to allow you to mount this somewhere other than the front windscreen, for example mounting it on your rear windscreen to capture anything that happens behind you, mount, but no memory card.
The mount feels very secure and the cradle has been designed to allow you to quickly remove the car camera, perfect for those who want to hide it/remove it when the trip is over or when taking a break at a service station.
The little screen is very useful for setting this up, ensuring you’ve gotten the best view possible. There are only a few buttons on the C201 so it should be easy to use, but actually the multi-functionality of the buttons can prove a little fiddly, it’s not always obvious what you’re meant to press to do what you want.
There are a good range of options, you can tweak the settings until its as you want it (although aside from the date setting I was fine with it out of the box).
As you’ll see from the video below (in which I’ve mistakenly called this the C210) picture quality is very good, very smooth motion and no issues caused by going over bumps. Note it can record sound, it’s not the most amazing sound recording but you can make out conversations in the car (or singing!).
You’ll need to supply a memory card, once you’ve got some footage recorded you’ll find rather than one long recording you get a series of files, about 100 – 150MB each, which is a very handy way of finding the footage you’re especially interested in.
The Polaroid C201 is a good little package if you need to record footage on the go.
