I'm looking for a dash cam under $50 (there's 100's of them on EBAY), with an LCD screen 2" or larger, that records, and night vision, if that's possible! I don't know if I'm asking for much under $50, because I know NOTHING about them. Thank You!

You'll find something! I would get a known model number from amazon though to avoid knockoffs.

Here's what I use. Very happy with it, SirTanon recommended it to me. I got it last summer and it's survived through our heat in the sun with the windows up.

Does it record? If so, how do you transfer the video? Does it have night vision?

There is no "night vision" because infared cant pass through a windshield..

some have a pretty good dynamic range but you really need headlights or some other form of light for them to capture anything at night.

I'd recommend an anker roav c1 if you want a stealthy looking install.

or
something like this (not stealthy install)
https://www.amazon.com/OldShark-G-Sensor...ywords=dash+cam


50 is cutting it sort of tight.. plenty of stuff goes on sale near there..
maybe 60$ for something good if you catch a sale.
the better brands will have extra features like
smartphone app to view footage etc.

Really good starts at 100+ to 250.

Also get a 32GB high endurance microsd... it records gigabytes per hour.

For better night vision you want a lens with a larger aperture (lets in more light per frame), which is a lower F number, I went from a dash cam with an F2.0 to a F1.6 lens and that lets in about 50% more light and noticeably better footage at night (same make and software), at the lower price range this is more important (for low light) than difference between 720p and 1080p recording.

https://dashcamtalk.com/ is a site worth visiting, very US focused (could not get even half the models listed in the UK), lots of technial information.
Also https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-dash-cam/ is good for a quick overview.

This is the one I have.

Video 1
Video 2

I have night videos but havent trimmed them to an acceptable length. The quality is not perfect, but its enough to show what is going on around the vehicle at the time of an incident and show a good description of surrounding vehicles.

With a switched power supply, the camera will turn on and off with the ignition of the vehicle, so no attention really needs to be paid to it. Most automatically save footage when the camera senses impact, and have a button to press in cases like the 2 videos I posted where there is no impact.
