Full HD

Full HD

The DrivePro 100 is Full HD. Most of the other camcorders that have been around for a comparable time to the DrivePro 100 are not Full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other Full HD camcorders currently available including the Air Pro Lite WiFi ActION[pl_2962214_price], or the DashCam[pl_2962215_price] both from ION or the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Night Mode

Unlike most of the other comparable spec video cameras that are a similar age to the DrivePro 100 which do not have a night mode, the Transcend DrivePro 100 has a night mode.

Other camcorders with a night mode currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price], or the HP F-500[plb_2962207_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Display

The DrivePro 100 has a built-in display, as do most of the other video cameras of a similar age and type to the DrivePro 100.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with a built-in display and we think because of it's better review score, the DashCam[pl_2962215_price], and the DashCam WiFi[pl_2962216_price] both from ION or the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has One White Balance Mode

The DrivePro 100 has a greater number of white balance modes than most video cameras of a similar type and age to it. This camcorder has an Auto white balance mode, which is the most commonly found white balance mode found on video cameras of a comparable spec and age to the DrivePro 100.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

Like most of the other camcorders that were released around the same time as the DrivePro 100, the Transcend DrivePro 100 does not have an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have an image stabiliser to this camcorder and we think the Air Pro Lite WiFi ActION[pl_2962214_price], the DashCam[pl_2962215_price], or the DashCam WiFi[pl_2962216_price] all from ION which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

The DrivePro 100 does not have an HDMI port. Most of the other video cameras of this spec and age also do not have an HDMI port.

Alternative video cameras which also have an HDMI port that you might want to look at include the Air Pro Lite WiFi ActION[pl_2962214_price], the DashCam[pl_2962215_price], or the DashCam WiFi[pl_2962216_price] all from ION which also has a higher rating.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2.4015761" screen size video cameras currently available including the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a camcorder with a larger screen size then you might also want to consider the ION DashCam[plb_2962215_price] (2.7165369") which is also higher rated.
