- Decent 1080p footage in mixed lighting and night
- Good colour and exposure in direct sunlight
- Low profile mounting hardware
- USB port is on the back of the camera
- Capacitor based
What I Don't Like:
- Colour is dull and occasionally washed out
- Audio quality is less than stellar
- Parking mode requires digging through menus
Summary: The A118C2 is a decent 1080p camera, however the extra 10 - 20 bucks for the A119 is a worthwhile upgrade. Please note that I borrowed this camera from a friend so I only had the camera for a few days. I won’t be able to say much for its reliability so this video is more to discuss image quality and the camera’s build.

---Design and User Interface---
The A118C2s body is wedge shaped smooth plastic. As with other wedge cameras, the camera is mounted to the windshield with a thin plastic plate which makes it rather low profile. The lens housing tilts up and down to get the correct angle once the camera is mounted. The 12 volt adapter is all built into one piece and also includes a plastic cover in case you want to make it look more like a factory install. On the rear of the camera there is the USB and other ports, but not HDMI. The camera has a small bright screen on the underside and five buttons. It isn’t immediately obvious what buttons perform what function especially when it comes to menus, as there is no visible indication of how to go up, down, or select options. Otherwise the menus are pretty typical of this camera style, with all the basic options for exposure, resolution and date/time. This camera does not include a GPS mount, but one can be purchased for it.
When it comes to video quality, daytime video is… well… it’s OK. The 1080p video has a decent amount of detail but it just looks a little lifeless. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by using the A119 for the last two months, but in day time the colours on the A118C2 are dull and the video appears washed out. For example I was filming on a very bright and sunny day but everything looks kind of greyish and colourless. It’s far more apparent when I put the footage side-by-side with the A119, which has extremely vibrant colours and better highlights and shadows. Adjusting the angle of the camera may improve the A118C2 a little more, but if you have a dark hood the camera might cause everything else to be too bright. The A118 does do well in a number of situations though- for example, when pointed into direct sunlight the camera properly exposes everything instead of going too dark. And in mixed lighting, such as in underground parking lots, or in overcast conditions the camera exposes much better.
Night footage from this camera is average to above average depending on the situation. In the city, with lots of street lighting, the camera picks up its surroundings very well and colour is surprisingly good. Please ignore the streaking coming off of the street lights, that is a result of my windshield being beat up. On country roads at night, this camera does not pick up much other than what is directly in the headlights. This is typical of most dash cams in this price range.
Audio quality from this camera is just awful. The camera picks up tons of road noise and everything else sounds muffled, like the mic is under water. Even when the car is stopped the audio is not very clear. Here’s what it sounds like:
Overall, my recommendation is to spend a bit extra and get the A119 over this camera. The video quality is higher in daylight, because the A119 does a better job with colour, shadows and highlights, and the night video is close enough to call it a draw. The A118C2 is an OK camera, but there is better value available for just a little bit more money.
The manual is tiny, but I blew it up by 225% and installation was not difficult.
Comes with extra sticky pads and sticky cable ties, but warm up the truck first.
Max res gives (i think) 4 hours on a 32gb micro SD.
Daylight recording is good; don't know about night - I don't get out much.
This Camera is capacitor based; I have had dash-cams with Li-po batteries but they fail after 2-3 years and need to be disassembled and MacGyvered with a soldering iron to replace the battery. Duh.
The camera and cable cover fit behind and against the rear view mirror, making it not so obvious when looking from outside of the car, and it doesn't create a visual obstruction. Make sure where the camera and cable cover is going to be mounted will not affect where you (or anyone that uses the car) adjust your rear view mirror to. Also place the camera where the screen can be viewed with the mirror pushed/rotated away from the screen.
Easy to clip and unclip the camera from the mounting bracket.
The cable length is enough to run/hide the cable from the rear view mirror to the power plug.
Will start recording shortly after ignition is on, and shutdowns shortly after ignition is off.
Recorded videos during daytime and night time are clear. Sound recording is clear as well.
Overall, it does what it supposed to do...and it's somewhat hidden.
