- YI Nightscape Dashcam
YI has become a well-known name in our country mainly through action cams. After the YI 4K+, however, they have moved away from it again and developed mainly home security cameras and dashcams, for which there is a larger market, especially in China.
The Nightscape Dashcam is equipped with a Sony STARVIS sensor, which is supposed to guarantee best pictures even at night and in bad lighting conditions. The incident light is bundled via six lenses. The 140° wide angle is intended to capture as large an image as possible and to reproduce even small details sharply. The resolution here is 1080p with 60fps or even 2.7K, but then with “only” 30 frames per second.
An “intelligent driving assistant“, as YI calls it, is also on board. The AI-based software warns the driver when there is a risk of collision, detects lane changes and even warns him if he is tired. How exactly the latter is to be monitored by the camera, however, is not yet quite clear to us.
The camera can also be connected to the smartphone via WLAN. Together with the corresponding app, recordings can also be easily saved on the mobile phone. You will probably also be able to change the camera settings in this way. The app YI Dash Cam is available for both Android and iOS.
A battery is not installed in the camera, instead it is supplied with power via the USB port in the car (or alternatively via an adapter via the on-board power socket/cigarette lighter).
YI has gained a lot of experience at Dashcams. The fact that the improved night vision is now also being looked after should be a welcome addition for many drivers. Dashcams are also becoming more and more popular. Even if they are not necessarily registered in all western countries.
Nevertheless, YI delivers a promising product here. If the night vision is as good as promised, the camera will find its buyers. What is your opinion about YI Nightscape and Dashcams in general?To the gadget
