DOD LS470W DASH CAM
DODLS470W Launched in mid 2016.
New for 2016, the DOD LS470W and DODLS470W+ plus are improved models over the still current DODLS460W.
DOD LS470W has taken the next step in improved video quality over the already highly recommended DODLS460W.
The key differences between the DOD LS47W and the 460 are;
DOD LS470W uses a larger F1.6 aperture and lifts the ISO from 3200 up to a maximum ISO 12800 for what should be a big lift in an already market leading night time video quality. They have also gone from a 6G lens in the 460 to a new 7G, seven layered glass, lens in the DOD LS470W for clearer all round day and night video.
DOD LS470W also uses a slighter wider angle view of 150 degrees over the 140 degree view of the 460. DOD have upgraded the standard GPS unit to one that updates 10 x per second over the 460 which updated at the rate of 5x per second. This brings new and improved features to the heads up display or HUD on the DOD LS470W.
DOD LS470W also incorporates a motion detection parking mode to offer additional protection while you are away from your car. To get the most out of parking mode would usually require the addition of hardwiring your dash cam.
At the same time DOD have also introduced the DODLS470W+ dashcam.
DODLS470W+ is essentially the same as the LS470W but offers additional features.
DODLS470W+ offers for the first time on a DOD a CPL filter. Ideal for removing windscreen reflections which can be a problem for some installations and also more common in bright sunny conditions found here in Australia.
DODLS470W+ also offers a slightly larger LCD screen of 3 inches. This is good for people who like to view video in car on the Dashcam but also means the LS470W+ is slightly less discrete than the LS470W or the 460.
The plus model more interestingly also has a much larger battery than the other DOD models. The much larger battery on the DODLS470W+ is designed to support the parking mode and allow the camera to run for longer periods of time in parking mode. This can in some cases negate the need for hardwiring your dash cam which previously was almost a must for people who wanted parking protection while away from their car.
LS470W and LS470W+ also both come packaged with a new GPS enabled video media player to support the new functions of both cams. In addition to the new features above Both the DODLS470W and DODLS470W+ carry over all of the same features as the DODLS460W.
In a nutshell the new DODLS470W should give solid improvement in both day, and especially night video quality, clearer all round video and improved GPS functions over what was an already very impressive camera in the LS460W.
