Roadhawk launches HD-2 dashcam with image stabilisation

Roadhawk has released its latest HD-2 dashcam with night vision technology and image stabilisation.

The HD-2 uses an action camera chipset that provides Super HD images and is capable of by recording at 1080p at 60fps (frames per second).

Its footage is further improved through electronic image stabilisation, meaning that video is uninterrupted and legible even on the roughest of road surfaces.

The camera adds High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology, meaning glare is reduced in particularly bright conditions such as driving towards low sunshine, but also providing extremely detailed images at night time.

The HD-2 has GPS technology and an automatic shock sensor which measures any impact to the vehicle. When a shock is detected, the camera will log the file as an event, making it easy to find and review should you need to send it to an insurer, police, or use in a court of law.

Events can also be manually activated, either using the ‘E’ button on the rear of the camera or by using the optional remote event trigger, giving you the option to record anything else you see on the road.

The HD-2 will be fully compatible with mounting and power solutions for previous Roadhawk models, meaning customers don’t need to buy new accessories.

John Watkins, executive chairman of parent company Trakm8, said: “The HD-2 has pushed dash cam technology into a new chapter and will provide both drivers and businesses with some of the best quality footage and evidence available. With the risk posed by crash for cash fraud and a claims culture that has sadly become engrained in British society, dash cams are becoming an essential piece of kit.”
