Lightest & Smallest Video Recorder

Hello, humans!

I have been looking for a dashboard camera for a long time. Since I am not able to find a good one, I'm thinking of a DIY. While there are also a lot of other things to consider, I just want to know some of the smallest cameras which I can just stick behind IVRM while driving. Of course, video quality is the main priority. It should be able to record decently at around 50-60kmph at least. The budget is around 5k, or the cheapest available.

soo you basically want a cam that have a battery , memory, can record at least at 30 fps at 640x360 ...and should be small enough.

will check and tell you...I think those spy cams can easily fulfill the idea ...but you have to find a good one.

No, not 640x360. Atleast 720p. I have been to plenty of "spy-cam shops" and seen many different cameras, but none suited my requirements. Most had very crappy quality and if shaken, it went from bad to worst. We all know how Indian roads are and how much the camera would shake.

Battery would not matter much if it uses a charger similar to smartphone chargers, or a USB on either end. Would use 12 V outlet for that.

That's a nice idea, Zangetsu! Can they not be directly plugged into DVR?
@nipun what will be the recording medium...there is no memory card in a webcam...and it takes power from usb...

instead of laptop we can use leaptop or small netbooks
