A119 Pro & A129 comparisons
Recorded in 1920×1080 30fps with an overall bit rate of 16.9 Mb/s.
Well, this A129 is not yet in its final form.
What do I like about it? 1) Better mount system, slides to the right, not up. 2) Sony IMX291 Starvis sensor for both front & rear cam. 3) Dual-band WiFi. 4) Great new lens. 5) Bluetooth remote for emergency recording. 6) Removable rear cam 7) Parking Mode (hardwire kit).
I miss the power button from the A119/A119S/A119 Pro.
