More than my wife thinks I need.
The reflection you see in the upper right of the G1W-H video is the SG9665GC so you have an idea of where they were mounted relative to one another.


Edit: Scroll down further in this thread for more samples.

Within area of streetlights and on a small screen it is hard to see a difference, but at the end of the video when you drive into less-lit area, then obvious difference can be seen from background objects. Of coruse we can not fully judge both of them. G1W-H is good within its own price range, GC is from higher dashcam class.

True, but if you look at the road marking, lights, etc. you can still get a good idea of the differences. IMO the SG is sharper and better contrast in addition to actually capturing more light.

Edit: It is difficult to judge differences with samples only 1/4 the size of the original.

Edit2: Maybe later tonight I'll upload the individual clips if I have the time.

I'd like to learn how to edit a side-by-side top/below but the resulting video is full edge to edge screen.
(since you only use the center sliver of each video on top of each other)

example:

I know how much better is GC in most conditions, but I was just giving an opinion / conclusions from "average Joe" point of view who looks at side by side video and as I mentioned ( + as you edited ), - it's hard to see a difference on small screen. Thats why I always add individual videos of each camera + raw / original download file. I am glad you also planning to do so. This way people can see them individually on big screen PC, Laptop or TV, because from small ( 1/4 ) YT encoded video we may get not real results and confuse people.

I'd like to learn that as well. I have 2 different video editing programs and haven't been able to do it with either one. (That's not necessarily a shortcoming of the programs but more likely a shortcoming of their user manuals and my learning abilities.)

Wasn't able to get to it last night but this morning I was. Not the same clips from my first sample which was almost entirely dark roads but still taken as the same time and location.

I never tried to flip GC time to YY / MM/ DD, I always use DD / MM / YY, but I see in your day is 0001 ( 2015 / 04 / 0001 ) instead of just 01.
I have to try on mine tomorrow to see if changing to yy / mm/ dd the day will be 4-numbers.

I've already mentioned this to @jokiin. It's the same on both my GC's.

Agree. GC is about 3 times the price of a G1W, if it performs worse than a G1W, then it will be an utter disappointment. Fortunately it's not.

excellent, I was showing the engineers your Blackvue v SG9665GC video and they loved it, they want to use the same method for when they're comparing firmware changes
