DDPAi app

Initial firmware version 42016 out of the box. Latest firmware version 42021.


Recorded in 2560×1600 30fps with an overall bit rate of 12.9 Mb/s.



Danny’s final thoughts
Low light performance dropped after update to the latest firmware. But image has lesser noise. Details of objects can be seen/determined.

The DDPai app is a battery drainer. Hopefully, future updates would fix that.
