Is having a dash camera worthwhile? If so, any recommendations?

I recently saw an article about red light crashes
, and that led to watching a few youtube car crash videos. A lot of them seem to be filmed from inside non-police cars, so I'm assuming quite a few people now have dashboard cameras in their cars.
Do these come pre-installed in some new cars, or are people going out and buying them? I searched on Amazon and they sell quite a few models, so clearly at least some people install them themselves. If you've bought one, how much did it cost (really, how little can you get away with)? Is kludging your own
a better idea? Has having one been useful? Also - do you have to remove it all the time like you do a GPS to avoid someone breaking into your car to steal it?
