There are a number of settings available for adjustment to get the best results out of your camera. Instructions on the Advanced Settings can be found here: Advanced Settings

On Car/Motorcyle/Outside

Usually no change is required for this and the default setting should work fine.  However for faster moving/high speed action footage a higher frame rate usually delivers better results and smoother playback. A windbreaker may be required to reduce wind noise.

In Car Racording

The main change is for when the cameras are mounted in the car facing out through the front window.  As the camera is set back there are usually differing light sources that when on the default exposure setting cause what is seen out through the front window to be over exposed.  To set up the camera for the best results the Replay XD Cameras have the Auto Exposure Setting (AE in the text file) set to Spot.  Then when in the car point the camera out the front windscreen so that the centre of the image is the window that your are trying to look through of the vehicle and you will get a great image of the road ahead.

Prime X

The for Prime X the easiest method to make changes is via the iOS of Android App. From here you can make many changes however the easiest for viewing outside the the front window is to use the Spot setting in Auto Exposure, acessed via the advanced settings. You can then line up the camera using the wif-fi app ensuring that the centre of the image is looking out through the windscreen.

Another method is the change the Auto Exposure to Average and reducing the Exposure Value.  How much you reduce the value will depend on a number of factors including interior colour of the vehicle and how much light can reach the camera.  Reduce the amount so that the area outside the car is clear and not over exposed. This way you can adjust the camera to take in more of the interior of the car such as the driver, steering wheel etc whilst maintaining the correct exposure outside the car.

Once you have done this, as per the Advanced Settings you need to change the UPDATE field from N to Y.  For the 1080 Mini you should also update the time and date settings.  Save the file back to the card, insert the card into the camera and then power up the camera and it will write the new settings to the camera.  It will also change the Y in the UPDATE field back to a N.
