With v1.26, 2560x1440 60fps HEVC mode seems to have issues where the camera will just shut down while recording (often within a minute). I'm using a Samsung EVO Select 256 GB micro SD.

2.7K 60 fps HEVC works fine. I tried replicating the shutdown issue with 1440p 60 fps and it was consistent on the day that I posted the above message but now I cannot reproduce the issue. Also the videos that were recorded in 1440p had a lot of static noise in the audio even in the clips that recorded for a full 5 minutes without shutting down (I have loop recording set to 5 minute files).

I tested v1.26 for another week of commuting and didn't experience the camera unexpectedly shutting down; however, most of the videos had a lot of static in the audio. I did experience a freeze/crash while driving for about 40 minutes at night in 72 degree F weather. I had to take out the battery to get it to shut down; however, later I read on the SJCam forum that if you hold down the power button for 10-13 seconds then it will force the camera to shut down.

I flashed the camera to v1.24 and noticed that the Car Mode works like v1.05 where it auto records on power on even in battery mode. I'll test v1.24 for this week and hopefully the audio is OK and there are no crashes.

i had more problems with 1.24 (a lot of crashing and freezing and thus not recording) so i went to 1.26 again.

I had one comparison video too, pls take a look. I bought it at US$179 (camera only), seem like worth it.
