What is Night Vision in a Dash Cam?
Night Vision in a dash cam refers to the ability of the camera to capture clear and detailed footage in low-light or no-light conditions. This is achieved through the use of advanced sensors and lenses that can detect and capture light in low-light environments.
The Vantrue N5 dash cam employs the second generation of Sony STARVIS night vision technology, the Sony IMX675 super-sensitive sensor. This advanced sensor can capture clear and detailed footage even in low-light or no-light conditions, making it an ideal choice for drivers who frequently travel at night or in poorly lit areas.
Why is Night Vision Important in a Dash Cam?
Improved Visibility – With Night Vision, a dash cam can capture more details in low-light conditions, allowing for clearer footage even in the dark. This is especially important in situations where accidents or other incidents occur at night or in poorly lit areas.
Enhanced Security – Night Vision can also act as a deterrent to thieves and vandals. The clear footage captured by the dashcam can help identify perpetrators and serve as evidence in legal proceedings.
Safer Driving – Night Vision can also help drivers make better decisions on the road, especially in low-light conditions. The enhanced visibility provided by the dash cam can help drivers spot obstacles, pedestrians, and other vehicles, reducing the risk of accidents.
What does Super Night Vision do?
Super Night Vision is an advanced feature in some dash cams that enhances the quality of footage captured in low-light or no-light conditions. It achieves this by using a combination of advanced sensors, lenses, and software algorithms to improve image brightness, contrast, and clarity. With Super Night Vision, dash cams can capture clear and detailed footage even in pitch-black conditions, making it an ideal feature for drivers who frequently travel at night.
What doesn't it do?
While Super Night Vision can enhance the quality of footage captured in low-light or no-light conditions, it is not a magic solution that can overcome all obstacles. If you park your vehicle in a completely dark place such as a closed garage with no illumination, Super Night Vision would not be effective in detecting anything as it is not a genuine infrared night vision system. Moreover, using infrared technology for dash cams is not a practical solution since it results in reflections on the glass, which can be distracting. For proper functionality, a waterproof camera mounted on the exterior is required. Additionally, there will be no apparent distinction between having Super Night Vision on or off if you park in an excessively bright area. Therefore, it is important to choose a dash cam with a reliable Super Night Vision feature that meets your specific needs and expectations.
Extra security for nighttime driving
With Vantrue, you can be sure that your vehicle is completely safe at night. An overnight car security camera will provide you with some extra protection during the last hours of the day. By capturing clear footage in low-light conditions, drivers can have solid evidence in case of accidents or incidents. In case of theft or vandalism, the footage can help identify the culprit, leading to a higher chance of recovery of the stolen property. Additionally, the Vantrue N5's Super Night Vision feature makes it a reliable choice for drivers who frequently drive at night or in areas with poor lighting conditions.
In conclusion, the Night Vision feature in Dash Cams is critical for driving safety, especially during low-light conditions. The Vantrue N5's Super Night Vision feature is a top choice for drivers who value safety and reliability, as it employs advanced technology to capture clear footage in complete darkness. With this feature, drivers can have peace of mind knowing that they have reliable evidence in case of accidents or incidents and that their property is protected.
