Which Dashboard Camera should I get ?

Looking for a HD dashboard cam that is low profile and fits behind the Mirror and the windshield. I don't mind if the recording happens somewhere else. (glove compartment or so)
Or maybe someone knows of a good black box camera system ?
Just the same thing low profile and HD if possible. Thanks

+1 I use the blackvue and although it bothers me with Chinese every time it turns on and off, it's a great camera for $100.

Here's link to a Black Vue video and additional Black Vue info.
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...4#post12607344. Post #27 in the linked thread is the one with the info (I think the link will bring it up).

I'm hearing that the ITB-100HD is a better camera. I'm also hearing that the CR-500HD is a pretty good camera too. You can acquire either of them from ebay. The instructions come in Korean, although there may be English instructions for the ITB-100HD, IDK.


Cheers.
