Came across this video on reddit.

Anybody uses this action camera as dashcam?
Looks to me to be a good option, atleast when you have 4K 60fps.

10 years, many dashcams
No.
But i have tested out my dji osmo action on the windscreen, and i assume the one R run at least as hot ms my OA camera, which after a short 4K/60 session in a living room you do not want to touch parts of your body with thin skin.
So i assume around 60 degrees C just on its own with no sun hitting it.
AND ! most important you dont have dashcam functionality or file recycling, so you are left with a camera for recording a drive in higher detail than normal.
AND you can not leave it in the car as it is a thief magnet.


So no i would not get any action camera for dashcam use.
