We review Viofo’s A129 DUO – the first front-back camera under $200 that has great video quality, stealthiness, and reliability. We’ve been waiting years for this camera. You can get premium-level features at a budget price and it’s our new gold standard for this category.

GET THE CAMERA
We list trusted retailers below that we’ve seen provide good service earned over the years we’ve been doing reviews.
USA: https://amzn.to/2DelIuX (OCD Tronic)
CAN: https://amzn.to/2VXLQS8 (BlackBoxMyCar)
These Amazon sites are sold by Viofo directly in-country but there’s no local office. We’ll add an update on how warranties are handled.
Buy directly from the retailer we recommend for their deep knowledge of dash cams, hardwiring and their great customer support. BBMC started around the same time as us and they have only gotten better over the years. Use CarCamCentral10 for $10 off the purchase price.

PREMIUM CAMERA PICKS
To see if a premium camera is right for you check out our review of our top 3 luxury camera picks here: https://youtu.be/_KqLAJa8ZGM
GET THE RIGHT SD CARD:
Getting the right card will significantly improve reliability. Our best choices below are designed for dash cam use and have a warranty and improved error correction:
Samsung PRO Endurance: http://geni.us/SamsungPRO
Sandisk High Endurance: http://geni.us/SandiskEndurance
Transcend High Endurance: http://geni.us/TranscendEndurance
Next are our value picks. OK performance so far but have no warranty when used in dash cams and will likely fail faster than our above picks because of their construction.
Samsung EVO PLUS: http://geni.us/EvoPlus
Sandisk Ultra A1: http://geni.us/SandiskA1
