Part of the problem is, most of 1080p sensors in dashcams now are Sony's IMX291 ("Starvis" series known for nice performance in low light) and DR900S uses Omnivision OS08A10 for the front (cheaper the sensor, more money for manufacturer...).

Look at A129Pro, IMX317 with smaller pixels which outperforms the Omnivision one (image from a bit larger IMX226 looks almost like a night vision :ROFLMAO: ).
Thanks for the info. I’ll look more closely now at these details instead of ignoring them like I have been!

Could this also have something to do with the frame rate?
I don't have this camera, but mine does better in the dark at 30fps vs. 60.
Thanks for the info. I’ll change the rate from 60 to 30fps tonight and see how it looks..
