PHOTO MODE - Page 1

 

PHOTO SIZE › Changes the size of still photos that will be recorded. Of course, the bigger the size the more detailed your pictures are, at the expense of file size.

 

PHOTO QUALITY › Refers to how much compression the output image will have. The higher the setting the bigger the file is, and will contain more detail.

 

LONG EXPOSURE › Sets how long the sensor collects light through the lens.

 

PHOTO STAMP › When enabled, will display the time and date on your photos.

 

SELF TIMER: Sets a delay timer to trigger the shutter at the set number of seconds.

 

PHOTO-BURST: Fast multiple succession of snapshots, choose the number of photos desired (Max: 10 consecutive shots).

 

TIME LAPSE PHOTO: Sets the interval between a long sequence of shots.

 

SHARPNESS › Changing the sharpness setting will make your images either crisper or smoother, adjust according to your preference.

 

AWB (AUTO WHITE BALANCE) › Adjusts the color temperature of the snapshot/recording to compensate for ambient lighting.

 

 

PHOTO MODE - Page 2

 

EV › Exposure Value - Changing EV compensates for the amount of light that is allowed in. You can change this value to a lower setting if the scene is too bright, to compensate. Or higher, if it is too dark, but still depends on your desired outcome. A higher EV will take longer for a photo to be taken, and will add blur to photos as they take longer to expose.

 

ISO › Sets he image sensor's sensitivity to light. Choose “Auto” on your camera if you are not familiar with this setting. Depending on the lighting conditions, use the lowest ISO whenever possible, as higher settings will introduce more noise while pixel sensitivity also goes up. Adjust depending on your preference.

 

METERING › Prioritizes the brightness level of specific parts of the scene depending on the Metering Mode that is used: Center Weighted, Multi, or Spot.

 

 

VIDEO RECORD - Page 1

 

VIDEO RESOLUTIONS: A higher resolution will have more detail in your video at the expense of file size. A lower resolution has a smaller filesize but will have less details in your video. Conversely, a higher resolution will contain more detail.

Note: FPS (Frames Per Second) is part of the options in video resolution: The higher the FPS, the more images will be displayed per second, and the smoother the movement in the video is, at the expense of filesize.

 

VIDEO QUALITY: Sets how much detail is recorded in the video. Available in 3 presets: Super Fine, Fine, and Normal.

 

FOV: Field Of View. The wider the setting, the more parts of the scene are included in the recording.

NOTE: When using the gyro, 1080p in 30 or 60fps will not have FOV options as they conflict with stabilization.

 

AUTO LOW LIGHT: When on, the image sensor will compensate for low light, at the expense of framecount. Turning the feature off will lock the framecount to the selected framerate (FPS) regardless of lighting conditions.

 

SLOW MOTION: Sets the frame rate to run at the set speed. When recording in higher FPS, video will appear slow.

 

GYRO SENSOR: Sets the gyro sensor to stabilize the movement seen in the frame.

 

DETECTION: Sets the camera to record every time a movement is detected.

 

DUAL FILES: Will save 2 versions of the recorded video, one in the selected resolution and another in low resolution (768 x 432 pixels) for use in editing.

 

VIDEO STAMP: When enabled, will display the date and time of your recording.

 

TIME LAPSE VIDEO: Sets the time interval between shots; recorded files will have a single video output (MP4) instead of multiple image files.

 

TIP: For a more stable video or photo, turn on the Gyro Sensor. You will know if it’s active when you see a blinking hand on the upper right hand of the Display. [ Works in certain resolutions only, FOV off ].

 

 

VIDEO RECORD - Page 2

 

LOOP RECORD › Auto-saves your video in small sections, depending on selected length. It will record over your oldest video once there is no more space on your memory card.)

 

CAR DVR: Enabled powering on the camera and auto-record when the engine is started. Requires that the camera is plugged in to a car power adaptor.

 

MICROPHONE VOLUME: Sets the sensitivity of the microphone.

 

SHARPNESS › Changing the sharpness setting will make your images either crisper or smoother, adjust according to your preference.

 

AWB (AUTO WHITE BALANCE) › Adjust the color temperature of the snapshot/recording to compensate for ambient lighting.

 

EV › Exposure Value - Changing EV compensates for the amount of light that is allowed in. You can change this value to a lower setting if the scene is too bright, to compensate. Or higher, if it is too dark, but still depends on your desired effect. A higher EV will take longer for a photo to be taken, and may add blur to videos as each frame takes longer to expose.

 

ISO › Sets he image sensor's sensitivity to light. Choose “Auto” on your camera if you are not familiar with this setting. Depending on the lighting conditions, use the lowest ISO whenever possible, as higher settings will introduce more noise while pixel sensitivity also goes up. Adjust depending on your preference.

 

METERING › Prioritizes the brightness level of specific parts of the scene depending on the Metering Mode that is used: Center Weighted, Multi, or Spot.

 

TIP: When using your camera as a dashcam, use a car charger cable and remove the internal battery to make sure it does not die out while you travel, and to avoid overcharging / overheating the battery.

WARNING: Operating your camera while driving a vehicle is potentially dangerous. It is strongly advised to set up your camera before your trip.
