Nice little dash cam.
The box contained camera, user manual, holder, and both cables for operation; 12V charging cable and the usb to usb cable for downloading the material. Camera needs an 8-32GB SD card. My pre-owned 8GB card works very well with it.
The camera itself is very small and therefore does not take considerable place. It has buttons and a small 1.5” screen at the back; the buttons are very small but tight in their place and well separated from each other to minimize the chance of pressing the wrong button. Overall quality in appearance seems very promising, as the camera does not have any wobbling part, and is well put together.
Operation is simple and well covered in the user manual. It has both video and photo mode. In video mode there is HD 1080P that yields excellent results; the register plates are well readable on 5-8 meter distance, and the angle is an ample 170 degrees. The sound is quite good and the microphone can pick up noises.
You can choose how long the separate video recordings are, starting from 1 minute, to 3, 5 and 10 minutes. These files are recorded to the card and in case that there is not enough memory it will erase the oldest one.
I tested the camera under sunlight, twilight and night. While reviewing the recordings I noticed that the videos are of a very good quality, which is somewhat lost under direct sunlight; quite acceptable for the price and class of the device. During the night usage, it greatly benefits from light sources; driving in the illuminated city or with long lights is taking video quality to a higher class compared to the night drive in the open air without sources of light. No wonder, as the minimum illumination is just 1 lux. It does not have infrared night vision, but I won’t be switching the camera off during the night. It yields quite acceptable recordings.
The photos are taken in 4032x3024 down to 640x480 resolutions, with 6 more choices in between. The pictures are useful, but do not expect professional quality of the high class cameras.
Getting the videos and pictures from the camera is effortless; after attaching the cable to your storing device, just seek the folder which then has separate video and photo folders.
Overall, it is a great product that delivers exactly what it promises. Well recommended!
