With the DR750S replacing the most successful BlackVue camera yet, the DR650S, there is a lot of pressure for this camera to have a significant increase in performance. Here we have rounded up the 15 most important changes that make the BlackVue DR750S the best camera in their line up.
- Full HD rear camera:
This is a major step forward for BlackVue, with the rear camera finally being updated to record in Full HD @ 30FPS, ensuring the rear camera video recordings are as clear as possible.
- Sony STARVIS image sensor:
The low-light video quality and dynamic range video improvements are a result of the new sensor. This means that both the bright and dark areas of the video are shown in more detail than ever before, reproducing an accurate account of any incident.
- Faster Processor:
The increased processing power results in the entire camera’s performance being improved, with everything from the time it takes to boot up to downloading footage over Wi-Fi being quicker.
- Better video encoding:
At comparable bit rate, you will probably notice fewer artefacts (blocking). Note that this might be hard to compare on YouTube, which reprocesses the videos and usually causes areas with lots of details like trees to exhibit artefacts anyway. This can happen even if the original footage is clear of artefacts.
- 60FPS Recording:
The rear camera is not the only camera that has had an improvement, the front camera now records in 60FPS. This will increase the fluidity of the video and is most noticeable when turning or going past fast moving objects.
- Improved GPS performance:
The GPS module has been improved so the location will be locked onto quicker and the signal will be maintained.
- Event File Overwrite Protection:
The DR750S can protect up to 50 Event files. After 50 event files, the following event files are saved in the regular partition and can be overwritten. You can also choose to always keep the latest 50 Event files (so Event files loop into their own partition).
- Reduced power consumption:
The dash cam itself produces less heat and has lower power consumption. This means the DR750S will have increased parking mode recording times, keeping your vehicle protected for longer.
- Better file management:
To improve the expected lifespan of the Micro SD card the BlackVue DR750s has an adaptive format-free file management system. This improves the stability of the camera performance and reduces the frequency that you need to format the SD card.
- Higher heat endurance:
The BlackVue DR750S is guaranteed to run with no problems in temperatures up to 70°C and will cut off at around 80° C. However, in testing the DR750S has managed to stay on at even higher temperatures.
- Scheduled reboot:
As cliche as it is, restarting your device from time to time can aid stability. With scheduled reboot, you can choose a time suitable for you that the camera will reboot.
- Improved motion detection:
The way Motion detection works in Parking Mode has been improved to reduce the amount of “false positives” such as trees or people passing in the distance. You can also disable motion detection so the DR750S will only record when an impact is detected.
- Maintaining camera settings:
To make the upgrade of firmware as painless as possible the BlackVue DR750S will keep your settings when upgrading the firmware. This saves you the time and stress of going through the menus to set up everything again after performing a firmware upgrade.
- Improved security:
In a move to improve security, the DR750S has introduced unique Wi-Fi passwords. The password to your camera is included in the box and printed on the inner label of the camera, which can be discovered by removing the dash cam from its mount.
- Improved Stealth:
The BlackVue DR750S allows you to turn off all LED indicators of the dash cam, even when in parking mode. This means your system can go completely undetected to those outside of the vehicle.
As a result of these 15 improvements, the BlackVue DR750S is the highest quality camera that BlackVue has ever produced and will help it make a claim for the best camera system available on the market.
