Videos
The videos below are recorded in 1920×1080 30fps with an overall bit rate of 15.4 Mb/s for the front camera and in 1280×720 30fps with an overall bit rate of 6,050 kb/s for the rear camera.






























My thoughts
Decent video quality for the front and rear cameras.

The mounting strap for the mirror dashcam is not that secure causing the mirror dashcam to shake when driving on bumpy roads. Wished they used the spring clamps instead.

Like the blue tint on the mirror which reduces the glare from the headlights from the cars behind when driving at night.

the only thing i done like about this mirror dash is the camera is on the left side.
this was design for car with driver on the left

with the cam on the left, the viewing angle on the right seems like not full

unless they come with version where the camera in the middle then its perfect for us

Yes. As most of these cams are made for China market more. And also the strap mount is not that good if use long term.

agree on the strap too
i had to put some sponge in between mirror and this kind of cam to make it bulkier and tighter

The camera can be mounted using the mounting tape or screws. Screw mount is for mounting outside of the car at the rear.

The camera on the left side. Nothing can be done to get more coverage of the right side.
