The Mini 0903 (Nano Q) dash cam is a new 2016 version in the Mini camera series. The Mini 0903 is manufactured by the Chinese company MegTech. While all the prior Mini cameras were based on Ambarella chips, the Mini 0903 relies on the Novatek NT96655 processor. The camera has uses a high quality Sony IMX322 CMOS sensor.
The Mini 0903 records 1080p video @30fps, with a high bit rate of 20 Mbps. Video quality has been combined with this camera. Some owners indicate video quality is very good during the day and great at night. Yet others with early generation models have had focus issues and grainy night video that’s discouraging. We will update this review as more information on video quality gets accessible.

The Mini 0903 includes 1.5″ screen and G-sensor. The GPS bracket is optional. The Mini 0903 is your smallest Mini series camera in only 66mm x 33mm x 40mm. The small size and form factor make this a very discreet camera which is amazing since it includes a screen and constructed in super capacitors. Build quality is average, maybe not the best of this series.
Once again, the largest question with the Mini 0903 is reliability. A review of the Mini Series Forumhighlights reliability issues in prior versions.

We’d like to thank our member Sunny who created a thorough review for this camera on our forum.
