Just read about the upcoming release of the Pi camera 1080p 30fps I believe. I am wondering if this and the PI would be able to be make a working dash cam, would it be powerful enough to capture the footage to an SD card and then do the recycling recording and not have gaps between clips like some cheap dash cams have? Will the camera do the h.264 encoding?
Just curious if this will herald the beginning of low cost dash cams that actually work. Currently dash cams that have decent pictures and work well are around $150 to $300 USD.
