Z-EDGE’s action cameras are very popular and receive great ratings online. Today I will review it and tell you if it’s really worth buying. I will also mention some of the alternatives and compare them.
Z-EDGE S3 has 2 built in cameras – a front one and a rear one. They shoot in 1080P, at 30 fps – which is pretty good. If you disconnect the rear camera – you can also use the front one to record in 1440P. The video quality is really good – everything is sharp and you can really see the details and plate numbers easily. In my opinion – the video quality is almost as good as in Falcon Zero F360+ (Amazon link). The night vision of Z-EDGE S3 is good. A G sensor is built-in as well, so in case of an accident – it will make sure the system does not deletes the recorded videos (which otherwise may happen since the camera records in loops).
Another great dashcam worth checking out is ITRUE X6D (Amazon link). It also has 2 cameras and offers amazing video quality. I persoanlly really like this model and think it’s defiantly worth checking out. The night vision is excellent. Is it better than Z Edge S3? well, that depends. The video quality is almost the same, but the design is different. Both cameras are very easy to use.
The screen is 2.4″ – perfect size. There are many dahscams with smaller screens, many people find them less comfortable. The screen quality is excellent – it uses the PiP display. The screen is also scratch resistant. I also want to mention that there are dashcams with much bigger screens – like Falcon Zero F360+ I mentioned earlier – 3.5″, It really depends on what you prefer.
One of the biggest advantages of this dashcam is that it supports MicroSD memory cards up to 128GB. Most dashcams only support cards up to 32/64GB. The reason for that is that in order to support large capacity memory cards – the manufactures have to use more expensive CPU and memory modules. A 16GB MicroSD memory card is included – but I highly recommend upgrading it, and buying a 64GB MicroSD. They are not expensive at all, you can buy one for a reasonable price online. Just make sure it’s at least class 10.
It is very important to format the MicroSD memory card before starting using it with the camera. This will prevent bugs and problems. You can format the memory card on your computer in less that a minute.
This dashcam has a built in 470mAH battery, but don’t get confused – you should always keep the camera connected a power source. The internal battery is just a backup and will work only when the main power source fails or turns off.
If you are looking for an affordable dashboard camera with great video quality – defiantly consider buying the Z-EDGE S3 Dual Dash Cam. It offers great value for your money. It is easy to use, and has very useful features.
