Over 30% more pixels than standard 1080p Resolution
Full 2.7K HD Resolution Video Sensor OVER 30% Higher than 1080p!
The zBlackBox-HD3 comes equipped with a 2304 x 1269 resolution 2.7K sensor. That means the dash cam records images at over 30 percent more pixels than the more-standard 1080p. As a result, this dash cam can capture a crystal-clear image of a license plate from a significant distance. The zBlackBox-HD3 records images with a clarity that’s unmatched in the market, and with a ultra-wide 160-degree lens, not a single detail will be missed.
Six-Element Sharp Lens - Crystal-Clear Image
With this device, you’ll be shooting pictures and video through a Japanese-made Six-Element Sharp Lens, made up of six layers of glass. This feature allows for stunningly clear images.
Advanced WDR Technology – Best in Night Vision Technology
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology uses two shutter speeds - high and normal - in alternative video fields, and combines them into one frame. Even if one aspect of an image is illuminated and another is dark, every detail will be captured accurately. Individuals who do most of their driving at night, but want their dash cam videos to look like they were recorded during a sunny day, will find themselves extremely pleased with this product.
On Start Up Recording
Thanks to an electricity sensor that turns the camera on the second you start your car, you’ll never have to worry about forgetting to press the record button. Plus, you can program your dash cam to switch off as soon as you exit your car, or at a certain time later.
Motion Sensor Recording
If you worry about vandals or thieves taking liberties with your car or truck, the zBlackBox-HD3’s motion sensor detection makes it ideal for surveillance. All you have to do is set the device to motion detection and leave it plugged into your cigarette lighter, or leave it running on wireless battery power. When someone approaches your vehicle, the unit records that individual’s face and every move he or she makes while near your property. If you don’t want to worry about the dash cam’s battery power running out while you’re away, the optional Hard Wire Dash Cam Kit allows you to spy on vandals without fretting over a power outage.

Installed for my SUV and tried & tested for 2 days. So far, the overall experience has been great and I wanted to share some of it.
The number of customer reviewers was no so big when I ordered but I chose this one among a number of options because of 3 reasons below.
1) Wanted a compact size so that it is not too visible from the outside and also it won't block the driving vision. To me, the large display is overspec and pointless as I mainly use PC/Mac to playback the footage if needed.
2) Wanted one with GPS. It records the speed and precise location which could be useful to protect yourself when the accident.
3) Wanted one with a solid camera and optical spec.
The footage is clear and crisp day and night and I am happy with it. The distortion due to the 160 degree wide angle lens is acceptable and not a problem for the normal usage. The SW user interface needs a bit of learning how it is structured even with the user manual, which only describes key functions. What is great is CD software for Mac and PC bundled in the box. If you play back the footage with this software, you can track historty of speed and route over Google map. GPS accuracy is geat.
Regarding the customer service, I called them as CD ROM bundled in the box is small size and it did not work on my Macbook air. They sent me a link for me to downloard the Software immediately after the call. By the way, on-line chat on their website was not working.
Overall, my experince is very positive and I can recommend to my friends.
