    Dual-cam setup that can withstand high-ish temps..

    I'd originally purchased a G1W last year, and the hot summer of Alabama causes it to freeze every 10 minutes or so, and has melted off the faceplate. I'd been in the market for a new cam, and the fantastic driver in the white van who thought merging across two solid white lines into the space my...

    RAW video samples and temperature issues
