The DR750S-1CH is the long awaited flagship dash cam from BlackVue as it offers the much needed bump in video quality that fans have been waiting for. It builds upon the success of the BlackVue DR650S-1CH which has been our best selling front dash cam for years.
Are you new to dash cams and not sure what makes this model the one among premium dash cams? Then let me pinpoint three things that make it stand out: highest video quality, screenlessness and parking recording by motion detection (details below).
The camera features an all new Sony STARVIS™ digital sensor and one of its biggest features is improved low-light capabilities which makes the DR750S significantly better at capturing everything in front of you at night. Check out the difference between the older DR650S and the new DR750S at night, it is (almost literally) like night and day! Not only that, also the DR750S records at twice the frame rate, from 30fps to 60fps, which means that your video looks smoother and clearer.
Since this dash cam has no screen, it features a cylindrically-shaped body which is both stylish and super discreet. What is more, you won't really need a screen as you can pair your iPhone/Android smartphone with the dash cam and use a free BlackVue app for the footage review/download, settings access or checking real-time Live View for easy setup and positioning of your dash cam.
As for the Parking Recording, not only your BlackVue detects impacts while parked, it also detects movements. Videos files are marked accordingly so that you can easily find the relevant ones in the smartphone app or using the free BlackVue Viewer software. Please note that Parking Recording is optional and requires a Power Management Device in order to keep the unit running while your car is parked.
- STARVIS™ IMX291 imaging sensor is a reference in video clarity under low light.
- The powerful HiSilicon Hi3559 Processor allows for 25 Megabits video bit-rate for the best quality.
- For those who want even more brightness in dark environments, the DR750S features Enhanced Night Vision.
- In the new Sports Mode, the DR750S can record at 60 FPS on the front cam (this can dramatically reduce blur on license plates).
- The built-in GPS receiver logs your vehicle’s location, speed and time so you can later visualize its position on the map.
- Protect yourself from hit-and-run accidents while your car is parked with motion-activated Parking Mode (requires Power Management Device).
- Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to view and control your dash cam from smartphone (within 15-metre range).
- BlackVue Over The Cloud support allows you to remotely see what the unit is seeing, where it is at the moment, real-time alerts when the G-sensor is triggered and other security features (requires an internet connection).
- Based on super capacitors, with the max operating temperature of 70°C and high temperature cut off this camera can work well in New Zealand summer.
- Discreet and stealthy design that has received overwhelmingly positive feedback over the years. It's truly an eye-candy, hands down.
