    Hello,

    Dashcams usually use ultra wide angle lens and because of it you see a very large field that's cool but it provide much lesser details because the view point is "more remote" so you get less details for Plate ID or people's face details.

    So the idea is to find a dashcam with good WDR on which lens can be changed (M12 size) so instead of having 2.1mm or wider I could change lens to 6 or 8mm and use two dashcams side by side each one looking half-left-front and half-right-front of the view.

    Any model ?

    Try looking at action cams - specifically Ribcage's Backbone conversions. These allow you to fit a wide range of lens including zooms, often of much higher quality than the OEM.

    Comes at a cost though!

    M12 fitment is probably most suited to dashcam use as it's the same small circuit board mount as found in many CCTV cameras.

    Quality can be amazing though:
