The discreet RC500S is DOD’s first full HD 1080p dual channel dashcam with 1080p full HD ultra-wide video recording capabilities on both the front-facing and rear-facing channels. Its sleek, cylindrical shape and lack of LCD screen make this a great option for anyone looking for a high-tech, low-profile in car camera system. This dashcam setup includes the best of the best dashcam features available, including a SONY STARVIS Image sensor that captures full 1080p HD video through its large f/1.6 aperture 6-element Japanese glass lens for a crisp, clear image. The front camera boasts 145 degrees of viewing while the rear camera features 140 degrees.
One feature that really sets the DOD Tech brand apart is its impressive night vision capabilities. The RC500S includes ISO sensitivity of up to ISO 12800 for superior low light and night video recording. The built-in 10Hz GPS processor allows drivers to accurately capture speed and location. Last but not least, the DOD RC500S includes Wi-Fi connectivity, which makes setup, playing back, and saving videos simple with the DOD mobile app.
Our favorite features of the RC500S:
- Sleek, compact design. The RC500S is hard to notice once its installed, and that’s a good thing.
- Two separate camera lenses. Install the second lens in your back windshield for full coverage around your vehicle.
