FYI, this dash camera uses M-JPEG compression which is far inferior to H.264 compression format -- worse video quality/detail for the same bitrate/file size. M-JPEG compression is found in cheap dash cams (often 480p and 720p ones, some of which upscales to 1080p) while better cams have H.264 compression chips (well known H.264 chip manufacturers are Ambarella and Novatek).

Camera records in 1920x1080 at only 25Hz and 1280x720 at 30Hz. Manual [] claims 1/3", 1.3MP CMOS image sensor, which would suggest a 720p native resolution (could be a 1280x960 4:3 sensor with only 720 lines utilized for 16:9 video) upscaled to 1080p. Battery is 110mAh LiPo for 10 minutes life. Spec is mostly identical to Uniden's DC1 cam, and PDF manuals almost the same word-for-word.

Given the lack of H.264, I suspect Uniden skimmed on other components on this stripper cam made for Best Buy.
