The all new Thinkware F800 video quality is now even better, with the camera recording in 1080P full HD @30FPS. Alongside this, there is the new Sony Exmor R Starvis, night vision 2.0 and the advanced video clear technology feature, all of these work together to ensure you have crisp and clear footage no matter what weather or time it is.
This camera has 4 different recording modes and will automatically switch between them depending on what is happening around the vehicle. The recording mode that your camera will be in most of the time is continuous, from the moment you switch on the ignition your camera will start up and go into this mode and stay in this mode unless something happens or the ignition is switched off.
Once an impact is detected, the Thinkware F800 will save a 30 second video file to a separate section of the memory to stop it being overwritten by regular footage.
Next is parking mode. If you have hard-wired your camera, it will go into parking mode after the ignition is switched off. The F800 has two options for this, either time-lapse or motion detection. When in time-lapse the camera records at 1FPS for the duration of parking mode. If you choose the motion detection the camera will only save footage if motion near the vehicle or an impact is detected.
Last but not least is manual recording, when you press the rec button on the camera it will save that footage to the manual recording section of the memory. This can be useful if you spot an incident that does not directly involve you, such as dangerous driving or road rage.

The Thinkware F800 Pro has a range of built-in features, with everything from GPS to driver safety warnings available.
The GPS allows the vehicle speed, location and direction of travel to be recorded. This can be crucial data when using your dash cameras footage for an insurance claim.
The Wi-Fi feature of the F800 allows you to connect a mobile device, either IOS or Android, to your camera. When connected you can then playback and download previously recorded footage, view the camera live and alter the cameras settings.
With safety camera alerts, your dash camera will emit an audible alert when you are in an area where you should drive extra carefully.
The driver safety warning system is now better than ever with uFCWS and FVDW warnings being added alongside the standard LDWS and FCWS that other Thinkware cameras have. Having the Thinkware F800 makes your journey even safer.
When the urban forward collision warning system (uFCWS) is enabled, the F800 will calculate the real-time distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. It will then issue a 3-level early warning to the driver depending on the danger of collision.
When the front vehicle departure warning (FVDW) is enabled, the camera will inform you that the vehicle in front has started to move.
