The DR590X-2CH is BlackVue's entry-level full HD dash cam, offering 1080p video resolution at 30 frames per second for both its front and rear cameras. This dash cam features Sony's STARVIS CMOS sensor and Night Vision, which improves details in dark situations at a 139-degree field of view for the front, and 137-degrees for the rear camera.
Also delivering full HD in a two-channel system in a 139-degree field of view, the more recent BlackVue DR770X-2CH which also sports a 2.1 MP Sony STARVIS sensor for its front and rear cameras.
However, the difference is that the DR770X’s front is capable of recording full HD in 60 frames per second, resulting in smoother videos even at higher speeds. Despite the fact that the DR590X and DR770X capture full HD video in the same manner, BlackVue equipped the new DR770X with a SigmaStar CPU and ISP software tuning to improve video quality, specifically dynamic range, balance, and contrast.
Moreover, the DR770X does come with multiple recording options to improve video recording quality, highlighting an "Extreme" recording mode that increases the bit rate of the front camera to 25Mbps, higher compared to the DR590X’s maximum 12Mbps.
Both dash cams are compatible with CPL filters, and they work best with the BlackboxMyCar Aqua Shield that keeps your footage free from glare, reflections, and most importantly, rain droplets that could ruin your footage. This is a highly recommended accessory to keep your dash cam weatherproof.
