... and a bad thing as well, as I mentioned earlier:competition can only be a good thing
that's price competition, the race to the bottom ends well well for nobody, manufacturer, supplier or customer... and a bad thing as well, as I mentioned earlier:
" ... Bad thing about competition is that many so called rivals will be cutting on production cost to beat rival product price and it leads to product lower quality ( bad for consumer ). "
unfortunately we never get rid off price competition, as we can see from nt96550+ar0330 dash camera series "story, for the past half year price went down from 150 to 70 for nearly same solution. At the end many ( some ) forum members started "fighting" on the forum writing long "novels" because of price 70 vs 72 usd ( thread where I tested 4 and 3 dash cams side by side ).that's price competition, the race to the bottom ends well well for nobody, manufacturer, supplier or customer
You're right about the marketing sense. The Mobius developer knows this, but he is an honest person who doesn't want to make promises that he can't keep. As you note, he is a passionate developer and is the only person who has listened to users over the past few years. Others manufactures are now 'saying' they listen to what others want, but to date no one except the Mobius team has actually done this. It's much easier to copy a well-selling and well-designed product and maybe add a simple G-sensor than it is to implement the rich features found in the Mobius from scratch. Behind the Mobius is a small team who are devoted to their product. Considering that they have had absolutely no marketing whatsoever and the Mobius has become the most well known camera for it's size and capabilities I think they have done a remarkable job. I much prefer they have devoted their resources to quality and functionality and not wasted it on advertising or cutting corners on quality.Agree on this. Of course perfect scenario would be having both: talented R&D + good marketing. Mobius has passionate developers, but bad marketing sense with poor open vision, thats why they stucked with RC groups in the first place. But thanks to new rivals ( innovv and now dimika ), - they stared thinking differently, started listening to other potential markets and its in our favour
It's almost instant. I tested in shopping centre car park. Close to 1sec after some object will "interrupt" panorama2 FOV (field of veiw ).How long is the delay of Panorama2 til the motion detected record starts?
I think less 1 sec. should be a the max. delay for motion detection recording.It's almost instant. I tested in shopping centre car park. Close to 1sec after some object will "interrupt" panorama2 FOV (field of veiw ).
What is the distance in meters with panorama2 in good light condition?Here I must say that at day time ( or with good light condition ), it senses on motion objects much longer distance than if it gets darker, - this is normal justified explanation and on this principle most dashcameras motion detection works.
Many things "should be" , but most other dash cams I have tested have much longer motion detection rec delay. Pano2 is the fastest.I think less 1 sec. should be a the max. delay for motion detection recording.
