You caught me! I was trying to be like my optometrist: “is it better with 1 ... or better with 2 ...”; then she’d swap the lenses but keep the numbers the same. Hah.Did you intentionally swap group A and B this time? It was confusing me until I worked it out!
Hint: you can see one camera in the view of the other....
This time I prefer camera B, though both have managed a good exposure across the bright and shadow areas.
You, homeslice, are correct! Despite my switcheroo, you picked the DR-02 in both cases. And I have to say, I agree with you. I am very impressed with this cam. Overall, it’s very well built, and the firmware is solid, intuitive and responsive. IMHO, it produces a better image than the A119 and is overall a better cam for the price. Believe me, I am as shocked to hear it as I am to say it. I believe the OV4689 sensor gives the A119 an overly “yellow” image and that ruins it for me. The A119S might be better in this regard due to the Sony sensor.
I’ve gone back and edited the original posts to identify the cams. As mentioned, I will post video footage of the cams mounted in the same place with identical settings (in my previous pictures, the A119 was set to 1080p/60fps with WDR-ON and the DR-02 was at 1080p/30fps with no WDR) and offer my final thoughts.
