Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
based on spec listed and the results my guess would be Ambarella A5 with AR0330 CMOS which is a good combination

Aiptek have been making cameras for a long time which is good, I don't think they ever made great cameras but they have stability and resources as a company and their product has potential, as mentioned though, it is ugly

I recently bought one of these. I chose this one because of the high heat tolerance as it gets very hot over here in Australia. I had read on here about the cheaper units failing quit a lot. One thing I dont want is a high failure rate unit!
I have never used a dashcam before so cant compare with anything. The video seems very good. I have not been into the options. No idea what you can change. I dont notice it being large or ugly but like I said, have never seen anything else in person.
With a press of a button it records a 1 min block. 30 seconds before button is pressed and 30 seconds after button. It can store upto 10 different files which can not be written over.
It came with a 8gig class 10 card. I have no idea how much it can store before being over written but I drove to work today for over 1 hr and drove home again for over 1 hr and it had not overwritten the start.

uploading some footage now in early morning (dark) and during day (sun)

Here is the test vid

Hey guys

Still working good. Its coming into summer soon so will know of its heat tolerance. It has not played up yet, although it is only 3 months old.

Here is another short clip with different conditions. Sun glare, normal day time and raining.

Aiptek X5's video quality is average and its GPS option has never been officially made pubic. I have replaced it with FineVu Pro and it works far better than X5.

I will look at the FineVu pro for my next purchase thanks. I purchased this one due to its high heat tolerance. In Summer in Australia we get very high heat, much like Malaysia which is where the Aiptek comes from.

Wow, it has been almost 2 years since I bought this! It's still working flawlessly. I had a slight flicker in the screen a few weeks ago, I reformatted the Sd card and it is now back to normal. 2 years with no format will do that haha
If/when this dies I will replace with the gps version. It has been through 2 summers now, vehicle in full Aussie sun all the time, parked outside 99% of the time.

Glad to hear its reliable.

2 years - that is really good given some of the issues many have reported on here (after a few weeks in some cases) :)

Bigger more prominent designs are preferred in some markets, particularly if its an area that suffers a lot of insurance fraud
