I respectfully disagree. I swear my Viofo A129 Pro (when it was operational) had way better night time footage than the other resolutions. I should know, I only drive at night and my footage was more than good enough for court cases.Well you cant have that this year, but maybe next year if you dont mind being a very early adapter.
Also at the moment 4K sensors are very fine in the daytime, but their night time performance are like 5 year old 1080p cameras, so usable but not great by any means.
I just love the fluidity of 60fps and like I say, the night footage from 4K was outstanding (although I do see here that is not always the case).There is no need for 60fps in a dashcam, so I doubt that any manufacturer is going to fit a 4K 60fps capable processor this year, next year, or even in the next 5 years.
2K 60fps is already possible, your Viofo A129 Pro could do that.
Faster sensors so that you can have 1/60th second exposures at night instead of 1/30th second motion blur is also possible, and the next step in the competition for the best 4K dashcam image quality, so probably isn't far away, but right now the Viofo A129 Pro is still the best...
Yes, for movie making you want 60fps, but few people buy dashcams for movie making, and 4K 60fps action cameras are normally dreadful at night!I just love the fluidity of 60fps
It is pretty good, and beats everything else available at the moment, but has too much motion blur at times, so plenty of room for improvement.and like I say, the night footage from 4K was outstanding
I hope so, but I'm not going to bet on it! It is certainly possible if the manufacturers want to make the effort.It's going to happen Nigel, and it's going to happen soon!
I've had 80Mb/s from the A129 Pro, but really it doesn't need that much. I think some of the action cameras do because their compression is not as good, and in the case of DJI don't use the full colour range so can be a bit blocky even with 100Mb/s, overall the Viofos do better with less bitrate than GoPro and DJI.My dji do 100 mbit, other action cameras i think can do a bit more than that, but i doubt we will ever see a dash camera hit those numbers with factory firmwares.
I am in my raging mind brainstorming if HDR will be a useful thing in dashcams, but i dont think so the ways it is deployed at the moment in different cameras.
In that situation the motion blur isn't much of an issue, most of the image is static and the movement isn't fast, and you do want to be able to recognise the faces so 4K is needed.I'll reply properly once I knock off, but I definitely use my camera for more than event recording
Some already have H265, including the Viofo A129 Pro.When might dashcams incorporate H.265 encoding? For the same bitrates and SD cards we could record much better quality.
