    I was in the desert so the truck did have a thick layer of dirt on it. My footage on roads with a cleaner windshield does produce a better video.

    Another desert video, quality is not so great:


    Road video with quality being better:

    Are you talking about my video or @flank's? My video was clearly not recorded in daylight. It was very early in the morning, before the sun even rose.

    @reverend is correct. Although, I do not mount my camcorder on the windshield, but on a tripod. Take a look at the attached picture.

    Hey! It is Colorado National Monument! What a coincidence. I just finished editing a video of my first visit there. Amazing scenery!

    Time-lapse will never work for me, because the resulting video will too crazy fast to be enjoyable. Whenever I am ready to purchase a 4K camcorder/action cam, I do not think I will be going for those cheap obscure brands. Instead, Sony FDR-X3000R will be my top candidate. It has the same excellent "Balanced Optical SteadyShot" that my Sony HDR-PJ540 has. It is also capable of shooting 4k footage at 60 fps. Take a look at a test video below. It is so much better and smoother compared to the Apeman one, isn't it?
