My aim : (purpose - long drive activity)
- to record a 10-12 hour long video (not a time lapse)
- possibly ultrawide (upwards of 130 degrees or something like a super-view from GoPro)
- higher resolutions upwards of 2k or 2.7k
- physical size not too Huge (not aiming for bigger than around 10x8x5 inches in general)
- Cannot Spend More Than $1200 Just For Camera Unit Alone.
- not overtly complex to set up and control
My Flexibilities :
- Am willing to get a big power-bank (already have a 600-750 Amps battery jumper of my car that can power most of my electronics for 10 hours straight)
- Am willing to get high quality max-memory storage cards
- Am ok with it being a dash cam, rash cam, stash cam or mickey-mouse's twinkle eyes for that matter (i believe you get the point). Could be any category of cam.
My research so far : I searched twice for around 3 to 4 days on the internet on this matter but couldn't find any valuable clarity of guidance and gave up today. Mostly found people frantically sharing what they know in the world and having nothing to do with the context/matter of the question. for eg :- found individuals who started describing how handsome Brad Pitt would look in a specific lens as opposed to another specific lens (which obviously had nothing to do with the question).
From my search, the only helpful and relevant pages I found were the following :
- GoPro Fusion extended recording? (very close but not quite there, no way for me to confirm)
- https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4040987 (this link was the closest to my aim except his case is theatre setting and mine is a milder case of a driving cockpit without sudden changes in lighting. In my case, it will only be gradual natural changes in lighting as the day passes and transitions into evening and then night)
- (this person was the closest to my context, but he replied to my question saying 'it is possible but only remote chances with lowest resolution')
My Thots : (layman level)
- Would a newest model of GoPro be able to do this? (thinking if I remove battery and connect to power-bank the whole time)
- Are there dash cams which can do this?
- If yes, then what are the cautions do I need to take?
- Are there rental services for this kind of tech?
Can i achieve this task? Really want to know before I start buying a wrong setup only to fail and suffer some un-reasonable expenditure per my current budget.
