The Mini series has been entertaining us with nifty little dash cams time and again, and this time it’s no different. The newest offering, the Mini0806, is the perfect successor for its 08 series. Packed to the brim with technology
, the 0806 comes in a sleek and polished body 3 inch body. Sticking to the tried and tested casing, the Mini’s cylindrical sturdy build is persistent in the 0806.
However, unlike the previous generation 0801/0803/0805 models, the 0806 housing has been updated so that it has the ability to affix a CPL (circular polarization lens) filter in front of the camera lens. This polarization filter reduces the sun’s harsh glare and reflections off the windshield during the day time, allowing you to record an even crispier video!
The Mini 0806 is equipped with an Omnivision 4 megapixel CMOS lens that is capable of capturing videos in 1296p at not just 30, but 45 frames per second as well! A higher frame rate allows for a fluid and highly detailed video being captured, and that’s always beneficial in a sticky situation. The Mini 0806 also gives you the ability to record videos in various resolutions; right from the default "cinema mode" (2560x1080px) or normal mode (2304x1296px) at 30 fps to sport mode (1920x1080px) at 45fps. If you’re craving for higher frame rate, fret not. The additional sport mode at 720p permits you to shoot videos at 60 frames per second!
The Mini 0806 comes equipped with two microSD slots. Yes, two. And both are capable of gulping down 128GB cards effortlessly. That’s more than enough to record over 24 hours of video at the highest resolution, or many more hours at slightly reduced, but still 1080p HD, resolution. At the lowest resolution (1280x720) and quality setting, two 128gb memory cards will hold around 20 DAYS of continuous footage. Incredible...
The 0806 also has a 1.5 inch LCD screen to view the recordings and access the settings. Talk about ergonomics, the 0806 has it all! The 0806 also has an HDMI output port to stream your videos straight onto a bigger HD screen. The Mini0806 is powered by a microUSB socket allowing you to use just about any microUSB cord to power the dashcam, and of course a cigarette lighter power outlet cord is included in the box for you.
Coming down to precautionary measures, the 0806 is armed with an array of technological wizardry to keep you safe! It has the staple G-sensor that activates the recording whenever the dash cam senses an undesirable bump or impact. Furthermore, time stamp, date stamp, and speed stamp are all existent. The Mini0806 windshield mount contains a GPS antenna to precisely record the co-ordinates of any incident that occur. That’s not all; the 0806 also includes LDWS (Lane Departure Warning System) and FCWS (Forward Collision Warning System), to audibly alert you in case you stray from your lane, or if an impact is imminent. Nice!
There are actually two micro USB ports on the Mini0806, one on the body of the dash camera itself, and one on the GPS antenna mount. Either port may be used to power the dashcam, which gives you some flexibility regarding how you would like to route your wiring. The Mini0806 may also be mounted upside down, and there is a setting in the menu to flip the video, giving you even more options for mounting and placement! Not many dashcams offer this level of customization.
