      nutsey: Since the A9SE the chip in the Yi and Hero5 is a dual core will it perform better than the A12?

    • nutsey

      Editing a comment
      Of course it can perform better for certain tasks like online video streaming. A9 and A12 are the revisions of the same Ambarella S2 SoC platform and A12 seems to be A9 with one core disabled for some reason (reject/marketing etc).

      nutsey - add Eken H5s and H6s to the list above please. What sensors do they have?

      Not quite sure, but seems like both are based on MN34110...

    Today I watched the video contrast about ThiEYE T5 on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4z65FGys4FA

      Thanx! Nice video. But I suppose there is something wrong with the settings (autoknee/highlight clipping) as ThiEYE T5 shows less details in highlights.

      I've found the EV settings actually work quite well with T5e in bright or dull conditions with only minor adjustment ( -0.7 to +0.7) is enough with ISO AUTO and all else Default. Not tried enough Fine/Superfine etc to verify any improvement though.

  • #5
    I have gotten more details about T5 from the official website.
    http://www.thieye.com/en/features_T5.html
    I think it is a good 4k action camera.

      I can't say for sure if it's good enough until I got one for a review.

  • #6
    You are right! Did you review other action cameras before?

      Sure. But I'm not doing 'unpack-and-go-thru-menu' style reviews. As you may notice this site is for kinda advanced action cam users and they are interested in something more deep and sophisticated like disassembly analysis or firmware research.

    I'm awaiting your review.

      Do you know the difference between T5 and T5e models?

      A review I saw by TechTronic , elproducente, or Pevly has him saying it means "economic " to him because there are fewer accessories.Oops, I just noticed this is an OLD thread!

    I can't seem to find a place to purchase any of these A12 cams. Are any available yet to buy online?

      Many of them will be available in 2-3 weeks, but you can already buy Eken.

    nutsey : Have you see the Ezviz Five? I think it has an A12 processor. There is an Ezviz Five+ that I think has the A9 chip.

      Thanx. Ezviz cams are produced by Hikvision. Yes, Ezviz S5+ is A9 + IMX377 solution.

      So which SoC does your Ezviz S5+ use? A12 or A9?

  • #10
    Rollei released Actioncam 430 that looks very similar to Eken H8 Pro.

        webpage full of full frame dslr created marketing material but not a SINGLE sample image or video from either camera. if the image quality is 2star then the first person to buy will spill the beans... I don't get it.

        found some tiny thumbnails of the 360 cam on fb, nothing from the action cam:

          As for me I'm not sure if any of those 360-degree bulging-eyed creatures has anything to do with action cams. But VR/panoramic cams are still very interesting area.

          At last I found the real life pic of Melife A12-based cam.Click image for larger version  Name:	melife.jpg Views:	2 Size:	28.2 KB ID:	661

            I see on the nello website for the n7k it has an IMX117, but it is listed as IMX078 on this thread.

              Thanx for the tip. Now it's fixed like it should be. By the way steaming hot GoPro Hero5 also shares the same Sony IMX117 sensor.

            Ambarella A12 ELF firmware file partitions can be unpacked with A7 Firmware Unpacker command line tool made by [email protected] Here is the link to his site.

            'partition_8' file is LNX (Linux) partition, which is plain UBI filesystem image, and it can be mounted and the files in it can be extracted.
            'partition_5' is PRI partition, it contains AE tables (opens with AFT/AE).
