As a Xiaomi community, we know all the advantages and disadvantages of Xiaomi products. Of course, we know most of its creations are cost-effective and has no rivals in the market. But some of them face a tough competition from time to time. Now it’s the turn of the Xiaomi Mijia Car DVR Camera. It’s an amazing product that has been in the market for a while and was one of the best-selling products in the niche. But a new model has arrived that is predicted to make a strong competition to it. It’s the Alfawise MB05, which is currently actively promoted and can be yours for $47.99.
As you guess, the Alfawise MB05 is a car camera, which comes with a more user-friend design and differs from the many products available on the market. On the top, it carries a special sticker with a strong absorption. So you can fix it on the ceiling or the windshield of the car. It’s quite easy to install. After that, you should adjust the lens’ position. By the way, the latter comes from Sony and has a model number of IMX323. This 12MP CMOS comes with an aperture of f/1.4 and is capable of recording full HD videos at 30fps/H.264.
At the same time, the Alfawise MB05 comes with a 170-degree wide angle support. Thus, it is capable of catching anything in sight. With the Sony Exmor IMX323 image sensor, the camera features a wide dynamic range, which is quite sensitive to the light and presents abundant details in vivid colors. What the camera sees, you can display on a large 2.4-inch IPS display. But if you want it to become your eyes when you are not in the car, use the Luckycam app to display the recorded videos on your smartphone.
The Alfawise MB05 also comes with all the helpful features we used to see in the car cameras. Say, it supports motion detection. Thus, when it is in the standby mode, the camera will start recording when any movement is detected within 10m. Another useful feature – after power off and under parking mode, the camera will start recording when any vibration is detected. There is a G sensor. So the video recorded during emergency breaking will be saved and locked. The Alfawise MB05 also supports loop recording. This simply means each video clip lasts 3/5/10 minutes and is arranged in chronological order. The camera supports up to 32GB TF card. So once there is not enough space, the old videos will be automatically deleted and replaced with the new ones.
