Full HD

Full HD

The DrivePro 100 is Full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other video cameras that have been available for more than two years are not Full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative Full HD video cameras currently available including the DashCam[pl_2962215_price], the DashCam WiFi[pl_2962216_price], or the Air Pro Lite WiFi ActION[pl_2962214_price] all from ION which has better reviews.

Has a Night Mode

Unlike most of the other video cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the DrivePro 100 which do not have a night mode, the DrivePro 100 has a night mode.

We compared all the other camcorders with a night mode to this video camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price], and the HP F-500[plb_2962207_price] is also worth considering.

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 that were launched more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative video cameras with a built-in display currently available including the DashCam[pl_2962215_price], or the DashCam WiFi[pl_2962216_price] both from ION or the Vivitar DVR936[plb_2962203_price] which has better reviews.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has One White Balance Mode

The number of white balance modes found on the DrivePro 100 is more than most camcorders that have been around for more than two years. This video camera has an Auto white balance mode, which is the most commonly found white balance mode found on video cameras that have been available for around the same time as the DrivePro 100.

Chart Edit

CMOS Sensor Type

This video camera has a cmos sensor type, which is typical of many camcorders that were launched more than two years ago.

Video cameras with a longer battery life that might also be worth looking at include the Panasonic HX-A1ME[plb_2962218_price] (0.75h), the ION Air Pro Lite WiFi ActION[plb_2962214_price] (2.5h), or the Veho MUVI K-Series K1[plb_2962213_price] (4h) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The DrivePro 100 does not have an image stabiliser. Most of the other video cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to the DrivePro 100 also do not have an image stabiliser.

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

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

The Transcend DrivePro 100 does not have an HDMI port. Most of the other camcorders of a comparable age and type to the DrivePro 100 also do not have an HDMI port.

It is worth considering alternative camcorders which also have an HDMI port including the DashCam[pl_2962215_price], the DashCam WiFi[pl_2962216_price], or the Air Pro Lite WiFi ActION[pl_2962214_price] all from ION which also has a higher rating.

Alternative 2.4015761" screen size video cameras currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price].

If this video camera screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the ION DashCam[plb_2962215_price] (2.7165369") which also has a higher rating.
