Bro @blurjoey if both a119 and a119s same pricing which one is recommended?
*
A119S is more expensive as it is using Sony Starvis sensor. If not mistaken, will be about rm500+.

A119 will be about rm300-400.

I like both together but A119 seems to get more attention than A119S.

Actually, both are good. I still have both with me laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

You'll need to find out which you prefer.

A119 - 1440p 30fps, 6G F1.8, 160° FOV
A119S - Sony Starvis, 7G F1.6, 135° FOV

I saw it. I do know that Viofo might be phasing out the A119S as the Sony Starvis sensor price has gone up. Maybe that's why on the sales in banggood.

CPL filter only use to reduce the reflections on the windscreen. If you lots of reflections due shiny dashboard, etc. Then can consider getting a CPL filter.

CPL filter will also cause the video to be a bit darker and see rainbow effects on other cars. Same like you wearing polarized sunglasses.

Viofo don't sell those kits anymore.

I think I have a spare v1 to v2 conversion set at home somewhere. RM60 if you want it.

A119 or A119S as front and A118C as rear is a good combo. I got a few friends using this combo in the cars.

By right, when plug to a computer, the A119S will say connected to PC on the screen. Then your windows will see it like a thumbdrive. Nothing extra needed.

I have pressed the !Report button. Dear Admin, I want to report the service is too good. If blurjoey keeps on doing this, others might run out of opportunities.

Thanks mate!! Appreciate replies on both post. Gong Xi Fa Cai.
