    Do they offer installation?

      They do, last time I enquired they wanted $150. But prices vary from store to store.

        Was that hardwire install or just pulling cables and plug to cig port?

    The DR750x 2ch version for $440.30 for those interested.

  •  

    I just got the 2 channel version for $445 delivered, plus about $8 tracking with cash rewards.
    It's been hard to find local stock sub $599 recently.

  •  

    This or the dr900x? Anyone have experience on both who decided to upgrade?

    •  

      I've not got the 900, but the 750 should have better low light performance due to bigger pixels and hence each collects more light.

      There's also a 750x plus, just released in Korea and north America, but i don't know how long it will take to be available in Au and unlikely to be at this discounted price.

      •  

        Oh ok so what's the main advantage for upgrading to the 900x? Or is it not worth it?

        •  

          The 900 is 4k resolution, so theoretically more detail, especially when there's good light. I'm not sure if it has any other extra features.

      •  

        It’s here as well. Just not readily available. The plus is listed on Repco’s site at $796 1CH and $1167 2CH. If you click on them though it says unavailable. As this is a runout sale I assume they will become available as soon as current models are cleared.

        I suspect the prices are just placeholder prices and will be adjusted to be close to current pricing. It is a replacement model after all. Might not see a good sale for a long time though.

    Is this the sort of dashcam I see footage of on dashcams aus and it looks like I'm looking out of my own eyes?

    •  

      Yep, they're very clear

      There are better ones that this. I have the 750s and don't think it's that good and wish I had gotten something better

      •  

        What would be examples of “something better””?

        •  

          DR900, Thinkware U1000.

          •  

            @8azinga: hmmm U1000 is 695 atm. question is, is the U1000 $255 better?

    OK, it's a real store, but to me 1080P/2.1M pixels, Single Channel, 140 degrees doesn't seem great value compared to something like this:

      why neg?

      Don't fall into the pixel trap for something like this without working out why you want a dashcam.

      More pixels is great if you're taking shots of something that's stationary, or you just want action vids where you can see the big picture, but not make out any detail (like number plates).

      If you've got movement in the scene, a clear picture needs to get enough light to each pixel before the object has moved and caused a blurry image, especially if both the camera and the subject are moving. This is why the 2.1M pixel DR750x can do genuine 60fps, whereas the 4k DR900X can only do 30fps. Something like the Aliexpress one will have a cheaper image sensor that will be even more susceptible to blur or out of focus images if it can't keep up.

      Another observation re the Ali Express camera that you linked is that there's plenty of Youtube videos of cameras with stems and suction caps like that one where either the stem breaks or the suction cap comes loose in an accident, leaving the owner with great footage up until 10s before the incident, but nothing written to the card that shows the critical moments. If that's not important to you, then the Aliexpress cam will do the job. If you want something to identify the other party and give to your insurance company or to ID a thief breaking in to your car at night, get something better like Blackview or Viofo.

        This seems to be a very partial assessment.

        The Vantrue doesn't have a "cheaper image sensor".. it has a Sony STARVIS CMOS sensor (5M in front, 2 x 2M in cabin and rear facing)

        If you're trying to ID the other party then I believe having higher resolution in each still frame will better enable you to make out the number plate. Also if it's a thief in the night, surely the 3-Channel including in-cabin camera is better than a single channel facing forwards?

          It's always horses for courses. No camera is perfect in every situation. You'll find some useful discussion of the pros and cons of more mega pixels on this site:

        •  

          Vantrue front is using Sony imx335 sensor which is 5million pixel. Looks like their 4K is upscaling work only.
          Common practise of lower end Chinese brand.

  •  

    Strathfield car radios is also 30% off DR750x. Maybe it's a blackvue subsidised sale.

    •  

      It’s a stock clearance to make way for the DR750X Plus

  •  

    I don't know specs on current models, but paid a lot for the 2ch 650 with the 2nd camera internally a few years ago. I got the battery monitor for it, which keeps it running as long as the car battery is at sufficient charge. Very glad I did when we had a break in and it caught them on camera. Cost about an extra $80 from memory

      Parking mode and the Power Magic feature is built into the DR750X provided you hardwire it in or use an always on power/cigarette socket

      •  

        Good to hear! Well worth it

      •  

        Yep, I bought two of these “X” models for this reason
        Really easy to install (Ford Fiesta and VW Tiguan)
        Great quality footage and very easy to review footage with the wifi connection

  •  

    Is it hard to hardwire it in? Does it use fuse tap?
