Initial firmware out of the box

 

Firmware update

Firmware 7.2.0.9 fixes issues with SD card error when I was using 128GB Samsung Evo Plus microSD card. Also you can now select the video resolutions in DDPAI app between 4K, 2K and 1080p.

 

 

Test setup

Using a 128GB Samsung Evo Plus microSD for the recordings.

 

 

Z50 settings

Very limited settings on the Z50 as most needs to use the DDPAI app to set.

Videos
Front cam recorded in H.265 3840×2160 25fps with an overall bit rate of 26.4 Mb/s. 1 min file 189MB.

 

Rear cam recorded in H.265 1920×1080 25fps with an overall bit rate of 6,356 kb/s. 1 min file 45.4MB.

 

Sense Reality 2.0

Video with Sense Reality 2.0 can only be downloaded via the DDPAI app and a maximum of 30 seconds video.

 

 

Final thoughts
A great contender in the budget 4K dual dashcam.

Wish the the 4K recording was in 30fps instead of 25fps. But the 1600p and 1080p is recorded in 30fps.

The audio volume was very soft on the Z50. I had to up the volume on my windows and speakers to 100% only to able to hear.

Initially had some SD card error with my 128GB Samsung Evo Plus. It was fixed after updating to firmware v7.2.0.9.

The measurement unit in the DDPAI app settings. Not in the settings for the Z50.

ADAS is working well on the Z50. Wish can it can activate when driving at certain speed.

The Sense Reality 2.0 is a nice gimmick that you can share with friends for that JARVIS feel from Iron Man.
