Viofo A119S
Hi everyone,

Reviewing my videos, I've noticed my new Viofo A119S significantly lowers image quality after driving a while under sun exposure. The camera becomes quite hot during daytime (summer + southern Spain = bad combination).
When I come out of the garage, the image is sharp and clear. Then, let's say 30 minutes later, probably due to heat, the recordings become blurry.

Lens, CPL and windshield are perfectly clean.

Is this normal? What can I do to solve this problem?

Thank you very much.

and after ~"30 minutes" under the sun try to turn on the air conditioner for ~15 minutes, if your car equipped with it, just for a test.

Добавьте оригинальное видео , холодный , горячий(через 30мин), на одну и туже картинку, что бы сравнить.

The focus could be shifting due to the heat.

Get in touch with the seller you bought it from and get it replaced.

Once again, the blur problem is solved by installing a metal holder or heat resistant plastic. No problems.

Thank you for your reply, borik.

I'm afraid the air conditioner was on all the time haha. The weather was 36 ºC (97 ºF) today, with a UV index of 10. The cam was quite hot when I got into a garage.

The camera is partially hidden under a dotted fild the windshield has. I guess I'll have to cover it somehow.

Snapshot right out from garage:

Yes, that's an Audi RS4 Avant 2018 in dazzle camouflage I just caught this morning!



After half an hour:

Что это даст ? Меньше нагрев ? Это не решит проблему.
Никогда не отключаю экран.

it does create unnecessary heat to have the display on constantly, probably unrelated to this issue anyway, but always something to keep in mind

Вам эта проблема известна, я уже делал вам акцент на это, в SG у Вас стоит металлхолдер, почему не ставят в Viofo ? , На сколько я понял , в самых первых 119/119S , ставили именно металл.
