Hi,

The company resposible for oem manufacturing the DR32 cameras, has a VERY interesting web site:-

http://www.tekspring.com

Have a look at Products then Driving Recorder Series, Click on image for further pages You will see a whole range of DR32 series cameras, (Click on camera image for more specs):-

DR32 You know this one
DR32AB 6 element glass lens low light
DR42 4 resolutions
DR55S Hi Def Video output
DR526 6 element glass lens Low light
DR526G as above +GPS

Does anyone know whether any of the other cameras shown on this site are available in the wild, or even is there a possibility of this occurring?

regards


Patrick

Hi,

On further Google searches, I discover that although Tekspring has a very good website, they are NOT in fact manufacturers.

They have 16 employees, and seem to be a B 2 B facilitator, and contract out manufacture to others, I do not even know whether they have an electronic design capabilility!

They do have a stand at the Electronics show in HK currently on, and appear to be showing the DR32 and a document copier.

The labyrinth nature of Taiwanese business makes me wonder how anything can get built with proper QC and standards control.

Perhaps thats why the product is so cheap compared with companies that practice a conventional model.

I haven't seen any of those other cameras for sale. What I find interesting is that there are perhaps 2 manufacturers of this camera.

Tekspring which I believe is being sold by Foxoffer. They claim to be from Taiwan

Also there are claims that HETAI Digital Technology is another manufacturer, from China. The following eBay vendors are selling this one:
What leads you to believe that Foxoffer is selling the one from tekspring?

I've just placed an order on tekspring... geez... I hope the tekspring and hetai version aren't different.. :/

Physically they are definitely the same, software might differ between TekSpring and Hetai though and you will know which you have by the text on the corner of the video.
On Hetai devices, it states Hetai there, similarily on the TekSpring ones.

I actually have seen videos of DR32 with no label - wonder what brand?

I have a feeling the Tekspring one doesn't have the audio gain issue...

Will give more information when my camera arrive.
Hopefully the recording quality is just as good

Tekspring of Taiwan has a variety of interesting dash cams on its website - but that's all.

Since there are no suggested list prices and no video samples, I contacted the company for more information. The result was less than satisfactory. I was told that if I was ordering 1 piece that they would pass the order on to one of their clients, and if I was ordering 100 pieces that they would handle it themselves. No reference to prices, distributor's websites or sample videos.

I did say that I was an interested motorist and not a company, and that I wanted to make an informed decision before buying. But for now, I think I'll pass!

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
They don't sell retail so no reason they should have any pricing or share this with end users, its the expected response I would think

Then how is one to supposed to find out any additional information on these cameras? Do you know where I might find a retailer, or list of retailers? I've looked around on the internet without any luck.

I saw the Besta model in Panthip a big electronics conputor store in Bangkok last month. Did not enquire there are a lot of copies sold there. They had the dvr 027 asked the price £30 and it was a fake. Can get one off ebay uk for £12. Saw only a couple of stalls with them on. Back there in May to see my daughter. So will have another look and take a few photos
