E-Prance GS6000 A7/Samoon 3H2F Dash Cam – Our Review

The E-Prance GS6000 Ambarella A7 (aka Samoon 3H2F or Samoon 3H2F-D) is one of the very few dash cams that records 1296p (super HD) video @30 FPS. It’s based on the hugely successful Ambarella A7 chipset and that results in stunning day and very good night time video quality (See Sample Videos).

It was released in late-2013 and has been a very popular dashboard camera since then. As it records at 1296p (super HD) resolution, the video file size is also bigger. For this reason, the GS6000 A7 supports 64 GB memory card which gives you 8 hours (approx.) of super HD recording time.

GS6000 A7 also has the WDR (wide dynamic range) feature that greatly enhances the video quality during low light conditions by balancing exposure.

All the standard features such as loop recording, date and time stamp in video, auto on/off, G-sensor, GPS etc. are part and parcel of GS6000 A7. Furthermore, the GS6000 A7 also records and embeds the GPS location and vehicle’s speed with the video.

If you wish to view video and google map (for vehicle location) then there’s software provided with the dash cam.

The 2.7” 16:9 display screen is good and the menu is easy to use. The GS6000 A7 features 1 x USB Port, 1 x TF Card Slot, 1 x HDMI port if you wish to connect it to TV or PC.

Not everything about this dash cam is perfect. Many users report that the video playback is upside down when viewed with the provided software. As an alternative you can use any third party software for viewing videos or you can perform following steps:

In Windows 7 start menu, go to “Manage preferred 32-bit DirectShow source filters”. There’ll be a .MOV section. In the .MOV section, select the “Haali” option; by default “System default” will be selected. Click “Apply & Close” and that’s pretty much to it.

We hope that this issue gets resolved in later versions of software upgrade.

E-Prance GS6000 A7/Samoon 3H2F Dashboard Camera – Sample Videos:

We request you to view the video in full screen and choose the maximum resolution; this will give you a better understanding of video quality captured by the dashboard camera.

Day Time Video Sample:

As evident from the above video that the day time video quality of GS6000 A7 is really stunning. The 1296p video is crystal clear and it’s easy to read license plates and other details even from a considerable distance.

Night Time Video Sample:

The night time video quality of GS6000 A7 is not as good as day time, but that’s the case with all the dashboard cameras. Still we can say that GS6000 outperforms some expensive dashboard cameras out there.

License plates and other details can be easily read up to some distance.

E-Prance GS6000 A7/Samoon 3H2F – Firmware

You can download the firmware for GS6000 A7/Samoon 3H2F-D here (dashcamtalk.com link); (please take caution while updating firmware of your dash cam; we aren’t responsible if your dash cam suffers any loss after firmware upgrade).

E-Prance GS6000 A7/Samoon 3H2F Dashboard Camera – Our Verdict:

To sum it up, all we can say that if you’re looking for a kick ass dashboard camera that can record super HD videos, is very reliable and supports 64 GB memory card then the E-Prance GS6000 A7 (aka Samoon 3H2F/3H2F-D) is a pretty good choice.

Although, it suffers from some minor hiccups, but those can be very easily fixed. All in all, it’s a pretty healthy dashboard camera.

Priced at $150 (Amazon US, with 32GB memory card, at the time of writing), it gets a big seal of approval from us.
