A new addition to BlackVue's line of single-channel dash cameras is the extremely affordable, yet high quality BlackVue DR450-1CH. The BlackVue DR450 is similar to the also recently released BlackVue DR430-2CH, except the DR450 lacks the rear camera.
Compared to other BlackVue single channel dash cameras, the DR450 1CH boasts the lowest price point yet, making it the most affordable single channel dash camera BlackVue has to offer. The DR 450 is the perfect single channel dash camera for those who do not need all the extra functionality and features that come with some of the high-end BlackVue dash cameras, but a dash camera that still encompasses the high quality that BlackVue always delivers!
If you are familiar with the BlackVue product line, you may be wondering what the difference is between the BlackVue DR430-2CH and the well-known BlackVue DR650GW-1CH. Here are some of the comparisons between the two:
- 2.0MP image sensor on the DR430 vs the 2.4MP Sony EXMOR image sensor on the DR650
- GPS is built-in on the DR650 through an internal GPS antennae, whereas the GPS is optional on the DR450-1CH via an external GPS antennae
- There is no WiFi interface on the DR 450 1CH
- The DR450-1CH camera is slightly smaller than the DR650GW-1CH camera
The DR 450 now has a built-in mechanism for securing the cover or "door" over the memory card so that no one has access to the microSD card, allowing for tamper-proof in-car audio and video recording. You can use your own mini lock to secure the memory card, or a simple tamper-evident metal or plastic tie to prevent or deter anyone from accessing the memory card.
With BlackVue's known reputation for reliability and performance, BlackVue's new DR450-1CH is a high quality single lens dash camera that comes at an extremely affordable price, making it perfect for those looking for a reliable dash camera on a budget!
