nice review mate, very nice and pocketable camera there and with the IMX323 (really a IMX322) does pull in a lot of light and night and performs well.

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
It will be the 323, think this uses the 96650 not the 96655, would have to double check on that though to be sure

apologies i meant to clarify that the 323 is just a lower-scale package of the same sensor that the 322 was (read that in a few articles on the Internet), so presuming image quality is the same overall? (unless AUKEY have implemented their own image processing algorithms) - -- that's what i meant the 323 was really a 322 in slightly different clothing.

I am testing the Xiaomi Mijia, also with IMX323 so will be interesting to see that in action too

323 can give the same result as the 322 if done correctly
here's hoping. i will have to compare the footage to Chupad D501 i have which runs 322.

A very good review as always Sunny :D

I'm liking the Sony sensor and the suction + permanent mounts; I wish more would offer this mounting option. Being workable with a 128GB card is sweet and the price is another big plus. And a 2- port PS comes with it. What I like most of all is the form factor; while it won't suit everybody many of us can't accommodate a 'wedge' cam. I see ventilation slots, I like the button layout, and the PS port location is great :)

However the SD card could be hard to access without dismounting, I didn't see mention of battery or caps in the ad, and 1080@30FPS isn't earthshaking these days :(

Didn't have time to look at everything in-depth but it's good to see more Sony sensors finding their way into affordable cams :cool:

Thanks.
It has capacitor as mentioned in the title.
It's got most of the expensive cameras features for less than $60.
Yes, sd card location is not accessible without completely turning the camera.
It is doable without taking camera off the mount but can't without changing fov.
