Dash cams - best bet for random encounter recordings?

Unread post by Shazzoir » Mon May 15, 2017 4:07 pm

In this age where so many people have dash cams fitted to their cars either for insurance or entertainment purposes (just check out how popular dash cam compilations are on YouTube/Facebook), how many of you have a dash cam fitted and operational every time you go out on the road?

Surely it's only a matter of time before some Yowie footage is captured - or has there already been some submitted for comment with the AYR team?

Night time/early morning seems to be the opportune time for sightings from vehicles, so I'd imagine a setup with superior low-light image capturing capability would be the go.... what are your thoughts and suggestions on this? The cheap Target cam kit I have is next to useless in the dark, but there are a bewildering number of cam kits out there and any recommendations on brands that are good or perhaps ones that should be avoided, might be useful to many who ply the roads frequently in areas of interest.

I like your thoughts shazz

However I think the chances of capturing something would be low, I only know of a few instances of them walking directly in front of a car,

More than likely they will avoid all lights altogether and either wait for a car to pass or walk off the road before the car has come upon them.

But I agree having a Dash-cam would certainly increase the chances of capturing one.

Yes siree, that's gotta at least be covering one important base, I reckon. Most truckies have cams, wonder what they could report if they knew about this website?

As we all know, you can't usually predict a sighting, but up until recently, I had a two hour commute each way from the Somerset region to Brisbane for work, and I still live in hope of spotting one of our hairy folk. I'm on the road from 5am - 6am in some fairly appealing Yowie territory until I get to the Warrego hwy, and the same of an afternoon from 4 - 5pm (or returning from a Brissie gig at midnight - 2am), so I keep looking! :)
