TOP 3 Budget cameras for front & rear recording

We have tested a number of dual channel dash cameras and came up with our TOP 3 choices for most drivers. These cameras record not only the front, but also the rear of your vehicle. Having a rear camera could prove to be very useful as it is a great extra insurance if you get in tailgating accident or you are a victim of road rage.

Work In Progress

Our Video Review

Our Top Pick: Mini 0906

The $130 Mini 0906 is our top recommendation for most drivers. It’s a great unit with 1080p on both cameras, and it delivers the performance and reliability that has not been found in cameras under $200.

Unlike most budget dual channel setups the Mini 0906 uses capacitors which are more reliable and heat resistant, so your camera is less likely to fail and need replacing. The majority of other setups we looked at use batteries which can swell in hot weather and damage your camera.

Alternative Pick: Aukey Dual Dash Camera

Aukey has released a promising dual dash camera. For $120 you get a capacitor build similar to our Mini 0906 pick. It has Aukey’s strong brand for quality, customer service with the potential for better error notifications than the Mini 0906. The downside is the weaker video quality as it uses an older sensor. As the Mini 0906 is frequently sold out, consider the Aukey. We will purchase and test this camera.

Our Cheap Pick: Pruveeo F5

If you don’t have the money to buy our top recommendation the Mini 0906 but still want a dual channel camera, the $60 Pruveeo F5 is the cheapest dual channel setup we could find. It has OK video quality backed up by decent customer service. It is a notable downgrade from our top pick as it uses batteries and has worse video quality.

For Parked Recording: Blackvue DR490

At $210, the Blackvue DR490 doesn’t quite fit under the budget tag, but it is cheapest dual channel 1080P we can recommended for parked recording.
