3.0 out of 5 stars Works Good., December 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CTS 2.5-Inch HD Rotatable LED IR DVR Video Camcorder with Camera Holder Brand: Lingstar (Electronics)
If you're looking for an inexpensive camera that works good, try this out. I haven't had one problem with this working incorrectly.

Issues I have with it (but for the price, is just fine...):

Picture isn't the greatest. It isn't real clear. If you're using this to read road signs or license plates, forget it. If you're using it to show that there are in fact other cars or large objects, it is just fine.

I've noticed that switching into the 720p mode, it does jump a little bit. It isn't bad though, just slightly noticeable.

The infrared for nighttime use isn't the greatest either. It shows picture great to the front of the hood and then it loses all IR because of the headlights.

It does feel a little cheap, but again, for the price, not bad.

I have used this for a couple of weeks now. If you'd like to watch a few videos of me responding to calls (I'm a volunteer firefighter), go here: [...]

The oldest videos with me responding, are w/out 720p and the newer ones have 720p. I don't notice a huge difference, just the slight jumping of the picture...

Overall, not a bad product for the price.

We can't see your videos because Amazon automatically deletes your links. Please give us some Youtube search terms so we might find them. Thanks!

Bought this little cam and like it much, with one exception. I am experiencing the "jump" referenced by Z. Tisdel. He mentions switching into 720p mode and that being better. Switching from what?

Also find that watching with Quick Time gives me really bad flashing and jumping. DivX Plus seems to eliminate this.
