If you are looking for dashboard cameras, the Mini 0903 is one of the best in the market. The model is also known as ‘Nano Q’ and is one of the advanced models in the market. The device is small and discreet and is much like its siblings. The dashboard camera features a 1.5″ screen. You also have an optional GPS receiver. The Mini 0903 records video in the high definition 1080p at 30 fps. The bit rate is quite high at 20 Mbps. The quality of the video is quite impressive. The footage is colourful and sharp not only at day but also at night. Most of the modern cameras use high dynamic range to improve the night recording. It is not any different with the Mini 0903.
The Mini 0903 works with the help of a Novatek NT96655 processor. A Sony IMX322 sensor is used along with a 7G lens. The device does not have a battery but a supercapacitor. Thus the device is much more reliable in hot and cold climates. It is one of the first cameras to get the parking mode. The recording in the parking mode is done at a much lower frame rate and thus results in a time-lapse effect. The G-sensor detects impacts and saves the footage in a folder that does not have write permission.
The device has a magnetic mount for the CPL filter, i.e. the polarizer lens. The camera can be flipped by 180 degrees. Wi-Fi is also supported which means that the videos can also be viewed on the smartphone. The Android and iOS are totally free.
