Known problems
The camera has proven to be very reliable.

Mounting the camera
The camera can be drawn out from suction mount, however, the connection is quite tight and some force must be used. The mount provided can be used to mount the camera also to 90 degree vertical windshield.


Firmware

Sample Videos
Day Video

Night Video

Prestigio RoadRunner 530 is being marketed as having superior night recording quality. Indeed, in complete darkness night quality is better compared to Panorama S (firmware 1.12.06 2014-04-22 18:00), however, in case of sunset with light sky the camera fails to adjust.

Updated: (firmware 1.12.06 2014-04-22 18:00).

Check my comparison review of v1.12.06 , - this firmware is too dark for pitch black driving. It's good for those who mostly drive at night n the city with loads of street lights, but not for rural areas.
FW v1.12.03 is for those who drives more in areas with less- or no street lights ( pitch black ).

If you install v1.12.03, - you will see that Panorama S is much better than Prestigio.

General question for the members here:
How common is this mount, it is exactly like the one on my Advocam. I am happy with it but till I bought the Advocam I do not remember ever seeing it before. Now that I see another camera using it I wonder how many other cams out there use it.

The G90 uses a similar mount as do some of the GS6000 series and Samoon cams - in fact quite a lot of Ambarella based devices have mounts like that one, especially in Russia from what I've seen.

A quick look at the firmware suggests that it's the Aptina MT9T002 sensor - from what I'm reading it's the AR0330 by another name?

You are welcome!
From all Panoramas FW, v1.12.03 has best night video for driving in pitch black or with less street lights.

The Panorama developer learned some new IQ sensor values / tricks recently that will will be applied to all Panorama cameras in the future.
(when he has more R&D development cycles available for the S and G)

Check out the latest Panorama X2 night time performance here:
