Thinkware F750 (dual channel Car-Dvr)

(Ambarella A7 unknown HW/IC version, but doesn't looks like LA85....) + Sony IMX122

Pros:
- Very High build Quality (nr.1 ?)
- Dual Camera Front + Rear
- very stable 3M mount
- WiFi - Real View from front and rear camera live + download any video file by smartphone...
- Real WDR (Sony IMX122)
- camera stick very close to the windscreen - due to this picture quality is better when your windscreen is in poor condition (scratches etc)...
- Dual Save feature (backup copy of the video in the internal memory when G-Sensor detect shock e.g accident, so you got two copies of accident -> in Memory Card and Internal Memory)
- Internal memory 512MB for about 3 complete video copies (front and rear)
- awesome motion detection with 10sec pre rec feature (I've never seen that before - Full 10sec before movement happen!)
- Built-in Super Capacitors (charging very fast and provide enough power for switch camera off safety) 2 weeks tests and none of the video files are corrupted (well done Thinkware!)
- camera starts recording automatically even when WiFi is disconnected for transfer files (with voice alert)
- Speed Camera Alert feature - very accurate and looks like no false alerts so far... (very nice) speed camera database is updated every 3months by Thinkware UK Distributor
- Samsung and Adata 128GB memory cards: "so far so good"
- any fake memory cards are recognized by camera !!! with voice alert > "memory card error, system restarting" so looks like camera monitoring recorded files!

cons:
- No LCD
- when WiFi is connected to the smartphone, camera stop recording immediately (unable to record and stream Video over WiFi at the same time)
- WiFi can be ON only for about 3min
- bitrate is just 10mbps for front and 9 for rear....(looks like Vicovation Marcus 5 Dual with A7LA70D with dual stream by IC Ambarella S3D series)
- camera can be install only in central place of windscreen
- Parking Mode and Motion Detection works only with "Hard-Wire" versions.
- price 259GBP is quite to high...like for dual cam without LCD....
-stupid light strip on the front (for what is it?) lucky that can be off, look below:

STREET GUARDIAN SGZC12SG - Zoran 12P + Sony IMX322 (WDR)

I think you do a awsome job pizdys, much more in depth than just comparing video footage.
Clearly indicate that there is pros and cons with just about any dashcam, no matter the price range.

Eagerly waiting for a game changing dashcam to take things to the next level.

Yeah that need to be added too, just the raw would be nice.
But i can undestand it if pizdya is on a slow DSL line, not too long ago i was limited to 1mbit in upload speed, and that was painfull to work with uploading stuff.
