CPL for VIOFO A118C2 / A119 /A119S Dash Camera With our exclusive designed CPL filter, it could further reduce the reflections from windshield, getting more saturated and beautiful video. What's Included: 1 x CPL Lens Filter
Top customer reviews
It did not come with any instructions, so it wasn't clear to me at first that the filter is a circular polarizing filter, which means that you will have to adjust it manually to obtain the best result. You adjust the filter by hand rotating the glass in its casing at small 30 or so degrees intervals.
I feel this filter should have been included with the dash cam. There are too many reflections with the standard lens and the cost increase for the company to include this polarization filter would probably be around $1. Instead they charge $15 to increase their profit and to bring the product to the standard it should have been from the beginning.
The lens does fit on the A119 really well. It clicks right into place and sits firm, yet it's easy to remove for cleaning or adjustment.
Here's what I did when I installed it:
1) Park in a place in the sun where you get reflections from the dash board
2) Put the lens on the dash cam and look at the A119 LCD display for reflections
3) Pop off the lens and rotate the glass 30 degrees (counter or counter-clockwise doesn't matter)
4) Repeat step 2 and 3 until you get the least reflections on the windshield (there is a small red mark on the glass which you can use to see when you are back at your starting point)
I used vinyl gloves to minimize fingerprints on the lens, but it can be done without. Just clean the lens with a soft cloth afterwards. You can also place a tissue on the dash board while adjusting the lens for a reference point, just note that the reflection of the tissue probably won't disappear, but it should be more or less transparent depending on your lens position.
The two photos shows the difference between the filter being off and on the dash cam. As you can see it doesn't remove all reflections and the lens flare at the bottom center, but it makes a big difference anyway.
ADDENDUM 3/7: after much searching on the website DashCamTalk, I see what it takes to adjust the filter. It is supposed to come from the factory pre-adjusted–but it doesn’t always. There is a red dot one the side of the lens which helps identify positioning. The red dot is supposed to be at either the 10 o’clock or 4 o’clock setting when the filter is positioned with the outside of the lens pointing away from you, and the side that goes next to the camera lens (the inside) facing you. On the camera, the large slit on the filter housing should go at the top, the smaller one at the bottom of the lens. You can also check to be sure that it’s correct by looking at a LCD screen and identifying the polarizing position. My MacBook Pro polarizes at 90°. The filter should be completely black when turned sideways facing vertically. Since pictures are worth 1000’s of words, I would refer interested parties to the website DashCamTalk for info and videos on the subject.
So how do you install it?
The glass needs to be turned in order to align the lens and remove the maximum amount of glare. There is a little red dot on the edge of the glass so you can have a reference point. The lens can be removed from the plastic holder by sliding it down into the wider slot on the holder then tipping it out the back. I would recommend wearing gloves for this.
Once the lens is out, turn on the screen on your dash cam and unclip it from your windshield. Hold the CPL against the camera and turn it slowly while watching how the image on the screen changes. This is best done while pointing it at the glare in your windshield. Once you have found the orientation that works best, make a mental note of where that red dot is in relation to the cam. Put the lens back into the plastic clip and turn it so that when installed it matches your test orientation then attach to camera. Done.
