what is it?
AI-enabled 4K dashboard camera with smart safety algorithms and GPS.
Measuring 11.6 x 6 x 5.5 cm (4.5 x 2.3 x 2.1 inches), the camera is small and takes up little space, allowing you to hide the device behind your rearview mirror. That’s a good thing for those who are easily distracted by the active screen in front of them.
The 5.5 cm (2.2 in) IPS-type LCD display offers 160-degree viewing angles and a rich color range.
Image production is provided by the Sony 4K IMX 415 sensor, which shoots at 30 frames per second at 3840 x 2160P Ultra HD resolution, capturing more detail during the day or night than normal video recorders can.
Sony’s Starvis night vision technology enhances images in limited light, and the camera has seven high-transmittance lenses with F1.8 aperture.
Built-in 64GB eMMC storage is more reliable than SD cards, with faster read and write speeds, preventing typical playback and transfer issues. Retrieving video can be done by connecting the camera to a computer via a USB cable or using the device’s WiFi via the handy Miofive smartphone app.
Other features include 24-hour parking monitoring, AI-enabled space warnings and useful on-screen data metrics such as speed, time and GPS coordinates.
The camera is attached to the windshield via an adhesive mount, which may bother some users.
Those who want to capture controversial events on the road for insurance claims.
Tracking all your movements via GPS can make you uncomfortable.
