VIOFO A119S
Hi, I'm new to the forum. Just installed my first dash cam. I think I've got a lens1 version of the A119SV2. I generally like to get the best out of my "toys" so try to learn all about them.
Rolled the dice on 6Vj mod. Not sure how useful my clips will be but I'm also just experimenting with viewing, editing, uploading etc. dash cam files.

1080p@60fps, no CPL (yet), high bitrate and I think everything else was "default" i.e normal sharpness. Weather was very wet...

I'm interested in feedback on how you think the footage looks. Enjoy the big splash in the first few seconds of the Very wet clip.

Cheers, Gene

Welcome to the Forum, congrats on first Dash Cam, A119S is great at night, it takes a licking and keeps on clicking. Thanks for sharing the 6Vj footage, your 130FOV Lens focus is good, change 6Vj to Strong sharpness, suggest using 6Vg or h on normal sharpness its my template and baseline IQ. For good assessments drive in parking lots and record parked video clips of brick/textured buildings and slow drives in heavy traffic, don't forget night clips. Much more to adjust and new Menu options on the way.

Welcome to the Largest Dashcam Forum on the Planet!
FANTASTIC A119S 6Vj snowy footage!! , that narrow lane route is amazing, your Lens works best with Normal Sharpness but Soft is acceptable for specialized video editing, thanks for sharing these clips, well done Sir !
You never know the result until your "Roll the Dice", you won this round easily!

Nice Video. But i think your lens is out of focus on left side.
Or your windshield is dirty?

Just Added Some Sunny Clips! Yea Sun :cool::cool:
Here is My 6Vg Mod Folder. Sub folders include Lens 1 and Lens 2 each containing or will contain (Soft | Norm | Sharp) Folders.
WOW ! these are the Best clips you every recorded using 6Vg, the Sun really does exists haven't seen it for over a month. Excellent footage, clear, sharp, crisp, colour is high enough don't need vivid 6Vh on Lens2, great job, recording all my favourite scenes especially the highway over/under pass. Suggest buying 4GB external drive and keep everything on sunny days.

A few months back someone mentioned other uses for A119S other than Dashcam when weather is bad. I had such an occasion when asked to visit friend's place with unique request.
Although this video is for A129 keep watching past 2 min mark.

Thank You for this awesome software!!
I'm not an expert, and to be honest - Its hard to find a diffrences between both samples. Of course Its hard for me.
Nice Video. But i think your lens is out of focus on left side.

I think the windshield is not clear - or im sure, cause im very busy last time...
Amazing quality, crisp.

Oh guys, im really shocked... Thank You all for your warm words...
You know this device, and you know "how to watch" footage... So yours opinion are important for me.

Im so sorry for my English.

VIOFO A119S
Created new A119S - Stable versions 26S , See post #1 of thread for details and ChangeLog.
The only change in this Stable version is Bitrate increased to 26Mbs, all Image Quality is the original VIOFO default values.

Not bad, but I think last MODs were better.
The bitrate I see in the file properties is 25.6.
This is normal sharpness level, it shows a bit of halo effect.

Thanks for the early A119S v4.03 VIOFO Image Quality footage using slightly higher 25.6Mbs bitrate from MOD-26S. That highway is great for testing, you have same weather as I 3000 miles away. The newest official A119S Firmware v4.03 has reduced the over-sharpening of previous versions which this modification is using. It will greatly improve quality for those with poorly focused Lenses. Currently the maximum bit rate adjustment is only 25.6 variable usually going past 26.5Mbs.

Once the new A119S January Firmware is released with Bitrate Menu option I'll have the ability to override it and set Bitrate to 27.6Mbs or higher. These higher levels will improve detail but may not support Parking Mode as we discovered 4 months ago. There seems to be a hardware limit of 44Mbs which I discovered in newest A129 Duo Firmware v1.50 and I welcome the chance to exploit it on the forgiving A119S without WiFi or Rear camera circuitry to overheat.

On v2.61, the peak value reached 63mbs when setting the bitrate 28
That is the maximum variable limit but all indications are the constant should support 44 or possibly thats only for A129 circuit board and Novatek NT96663 chipset.
I'll go back to older v2.61 and see if it will accept 32Mbs.

Looks like you Rolled-the-Dice and WON big on this one. (you realize 6Vj was created from your suggested 6Vh adjustments, it was always meant for your Lens with the missing 2 screws)
I had an inkling that it might have been tailored toward my preferences. It was just checking all of the boxes of what I was looking for. I wasn't sure that my explanations were even clear at all on suggested tweaks, but you sorted it all out anyway. You did an excellent job on it. It worked out very well.

I'm glad that other people are wanting to use it as well. Nice to know that people share my preferences for picture settings.

I also can't wait to possibly have the higher bitrates back again. It will be nice to be back hitting 27+

It's been snowing pretty much non stop lately, and the weather isn't ideal for video. But I did stumble upon this festive house in a sea of nothingness.

Thanks for sharing the Christmas spirit, noticed they have a donation box, put in a loonie for me. Your A119S with 140 degree wide angle Lens works perfectly with MOD-6Vj at Soft Sharpness level, one down and 55,000 to go.
