We’ve created a comparison video to help explain the key differences between the F200, F800PRO and U1000. This video will help you decide on which Dash Cam setup will be better suited to your needs. Take a look!
F800PRO Dash Camera features Sony Exmor R Starvis sensors for front and rear cameras, powered by Ambarella A12 processor; producing crystal-clear full high definition 1080P footage, even at nighttime via its Super Night Vision 2.0 technology that’s great for dark environments. This makes it perfect as a safety camera too. Consuming less power compared to rival dash cams, F800PRO is preloaded with THINKWARE CONNECT, a cloud-based system with geo-fencing, vehicle locator and impact notifications.
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)
Whether you’re driving under bright sunlight, heading out of a tunnel or getting under the shadow of a tall building, among others, its WDR feature helps get you through a sudden change in frontal light exposure levels that yield excessively bright or dark recordings. WDR does this by getting rid of overly bright spots and correcting colour balance to produce nothing but clear images.
Nighttime Picture Quality Correction
Images from videos recorded at nighttime on poorly-lit avenues, streets or roads generally don’t look that lucid. But with this, it’s an entirely different story. It’s armed with enhancement sensors that make brightness, colour and noise cancellation controls possible each time; hence, vivid video recordings of your evening drive.
A sudden rise of light exposure brought about by intense sunlight or headlight beams from oncoming vehicles, or poor lighting in a tunnel may give any ordinary dash cam trouble capturing clear images but not THINKWARE dash cams. They come with an automatic light exposure function that controls light exposure levels for crisp footage at all times.
SUPER NIGHT VISION 2.0
Using the latest Image Signal Processing (ISP) technology, which brings real-time image processing to the table, this captures images and records videos of up to 10 times brighter even in low-light environments like dark alleyways or underground parking lots for peace of mind.
Continuous Recording Mode
Automatically activates as soon as the engine starts, this function lets you record videos that are saved in one-minute segments via an auto-looping mechanism.
Event Recording Mode
Active Impact Monitoring System, made possible by the built-in three-axis G-Sensor, automatically stores video data 10 seconds prior and after a collision.
Advanced Parking Surveillance + Time Lapse + Energy Save Park Mode
Paired with a genuine THINKWARE Hard Wire Cable kit (HWC), this can provide full surveillance capabilities whenever your vehicle is parked. It securely stores 20 seconds of footage (10 seconds before/after) once it detects motion or impact.
Audio / Voice Recording
Not only does it capture vivid videos, but it also records crystal-clear audio. This enables you to enjoy top-tier comprehensive surveillance capabilities to the fullest, too.
TIME LAPSE PARK MODE
Records at 2 frames per second, the Time Lapse Park Mode makes it possible to reduce the video files’ size; hence, this can capture videos from your parked vehicle up to 16 times longer than other dash cams can. This ensures important clips or images will stay safe in it’s memory for the long haul.

Lane Departure Warning System
Designed for distracted or drowsey drivers, the dash cam will alert you as soon as it senses you’re vehicle leaving the lane while driving at a speed of over 50 kilometres per hour. LDWS alerts you when leaving your lane to help keep any road misfortunes from ruining your trip or compromising you and your passengers’ safety.
FCWS / uFCWS
High Speed / Urban Forward Collision Warning System
Keep a safe distance from the vehicle you’re following with the help of FCWS / uFCWS. Equipped with a state-of-the-art road safety warning system, it calculates the real-time distance between your vehicle and the automobile in front of you at a speed of over 30 kilometres per hour (km/h) (in expressways) and under 30 km/h in a busy, congested city. This dash cam issues a three-level early warning to the driver, depending on the danger of the possible collision.
Front Vehicle Departure Warning
When stopped at an intersection or a traffic jam, this dash cam’s Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW) intelligent guidance system lets you know when the vehicle in front of you has already started moving, helping you stay attentive each time.
COMPREHENSIVE DRIVING INFORMATION WITH GPS
This dash cam has built-in GPS, meaning, it can help you keep track of your vehicle’s driving speed, precise location while identifying ideal routes on the map. GPS also allows for an accurate assessment of a specific area’s details, letting you pin holiday routes for faster travels. In case of a road mishap, it supplies factual reading of vehicle speed, time of collision and impact severity.
