I did set it to default each time I loaded the FW and rebooted it but it was the same.
I wait for someone to confirm it.

It's there but quad HD is 2560x1440, so 2560x1080p (21:9) is just a crop, right? Is cutting off a bit from the top and the bottom the big deal? What use is this - slightly smaller files? Or am I missing something?

You are right. It was 1440P 21:9+1080P30 resolution number 4 in my picture. I switched back to my test FW to get the 1440P60 21:9+1080P30
Thanks!

So many people don't want to record the motor hood or the dashboard so they are pointing the camera too much to the sky. This is creating poor videos because the road become too dark. On youtube there are so many dashcam videos with this problem.
Using a 21:9 image can help such users to not record the dashboard and maybe they will point the camera correct.
The 21:9 image is not recommended for 16:9 fans. On 21:9 can be some improvement regarding image quality but not big.

Besides better exposure, another reason to include the hood of a car in the video capture is that the front of the car and the fenders are where the impact will happen if you are involved in an accident.
