    Just an FYI,
    Running a custom firmware with High-bitrate 1080p is usually a MUCH better video than a lower bitrate 4K footage.

    As always, test and see for yourself :)

    •  

      Where do you get the custom firmware from?

      Edit: thanks ^

    •  

      Out of curiosity, why not use high-bitrate 4K on this model?

        If it has an option, cool. But very few cards could keep up with it.

        Even 'top of the line' phones will only record 4K at moderate to medium-high bitrates.

          Even 'top of the line' phones will only record 4K at moderate to medium-high bitrates.

          You need to check out the Sony Xperia XZ series of mobiles utilising the IMX400 sensor (worth checking out how this works). The XZ3 can capture video at 960fps at full HD quality, and 4K HDR at 60fps. With a 13Mp front camera and a 19Mp rear camera.

          But wait there's more coming, Sony's next phone release will have two front cameras and six rear cameras. Here's a Ripley's for you and I personally believe it's just Samsung click bait to discredit Sony:

          According to Max J, a.k.a. @Samsung_News, a still unnamed Sony phone will bear two cameras on the front and six on the back (see pic). The front will have a 10 megapixel sensor and a 0.3 megapixel 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor. More interesting, however, are the sensors on the other side.
          Of the six, one is a 0.5 megapixel ToF sensor while the other five have 20, 8, 48, 12, and 16 megapixel sensors. All of those have f/2.4 aperture lenses but the 48 and 12 MP cameras have dual apertures, allowing them to switch between f/1.2 and f/2.4.

            @2getted: But even if that does eventuate, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra blows it out of the water. With a 100x zoom, a massive 108Mp count on the main camera, 16G of RAM and 512M storage which is expandable, a 120Hz refresh rate display, 8K video recording, and finally a AU$2,000+ price tag.

        There's some discussion about this on DashcamTalk saying although 4K in theory may have more clarity, but if the bitrate is not as good then you still won't able to see plates at a certain distance, hence the custom 1080p firmware.
        A good example is the A129 Duo (non pro) which is the 1080p version and that captures plates better than the Pro Duo because of the higher bitrate. People still have to use a custom firmware to achieve this though.
        I have tried it myself and its marginally better. I'm back on the 1.9beta 4k firmware

  •  

    Is it the same as the one on catch for $228 and free shipping? Or is the difference that it is not the "Pro" version (and is it worth more?) https://m.catch.com.au/product/viofo-a129-duo-dual-lens-dual...

    •  

      The pro version has 4k for the front cam, hence the cost difference.

    •  

      The pro has a 4K option, but the 'user opinion' is that a custom high bitrate firmware on the Duo edges out the 4K in terms of quality.

      Time to do yourself some youtube research :)

    Guys what's the price point for duo ?
