Where is that video being shot at, the one at the river? It looks familiar.

Has anyone been able to develop a script or hack to alter bitrates/fps/or anything else for this chipset/camera?

Hi everyone,
The following is the review of the E7.
Enjoy
You have later firmware than my E7. Original E7 has Sunco/Vikcam V50/Akaso V50 UI and seems ThiEye used T5 EDGE firmware for further upgrades just changing the "Camera Maker" to E7.
Night video is much improved with the T5 EDGE f/w too. Original E7 is much much worse, blurry lights and barely visible roads and cars. Unusable.
Vikcam V50 has "Encoding" mode H264 and H265 option. Sunco SO95 has LED's OFF,1,2,3,4 WiFi LED OFF/ON also and a ton of resolutions at 50fps or 60fps too.. Hopefully these will be PUT BACK IN to firmware by ThiEYE soon.

Vikcam V50 nonsense specs on Geekbuying

Advertised as same UI as Sunco SO95 bought Vikcam V50 in hope of at least LED's OFF,1,2,3,4 in menu which it certainly does not have.
Here is a list of options missing and their reply email regarding firmware.

Has anyone explored their update files? There seem to be files akin to scripts. It would be cool if someone could sort out the scripts to boost FPS, Bitrate, or activate 265 mode.

Has anyone been able to activate H265 on E7?
No but the Vikcam V50 (same cam as E7/EDGE and Akaso V50) has "Encoding" setting in menu. H.264 and H.265. Now why ThiEYE E7 has deleted option from Menu is beyond me.
Of course Vikcam V50 has BT removed and again no idea why.

Want H.265 use Vikcam V50, want Bluetooth use ThiEYE E7. Silly isn't it. This is all in the firmware obviously, and I did ask Vikcam to "add BT" with usual answer, wait for f/w upgrades then nothing. Possibly ThiEYE would be best to message, at least they are a more "known" distributor than ViKcam.
All these distributors are supplied with a full base f/w build 20171102-V5.0 (example E7 then "upgraded" to 20171103-V5.1) from iCatch Not sure why they remove options.

Do you know if iCatch has ash capability?

No. I can't find any news yet if they use an "autoexec.ash" type file? A user contacted Akaso about a firmware "bricked" Akaso V50 PRO if they had any recovery files or procedures and they said "No" and to return cam for techs to look at plus they'd send a new one! :confused:

Not ThiEYE E7 firmware upgrade (E7 upgrade Version No. : TI/UN8-180402-V5.0 reported as very good) but Akaso V50 PRO latest firmware has bricked a cam. NOT recoverable.
