Thinkware Q800 Pro Wide Dynamic Range

When you are driving under bright sunlight, coming out of a tunnel, or getting under the shadow of a tall building etc,
a sudden change in frontal light exposure levels can result in excessively bright or dark recordings.

to correct its color balance in order to ensure a clear image. 


A sudden rise of light exposure caused by strong sunlight or headlight beams of oncoming vehicle may cause difficulties to assess the situation. Also, lack of lighting in a dark tunnel or night driving may pose the same problem.
The automatic light exposure function controls the level of light exposure to maintain vivid and clear video recordings in all circumstances.
