Cansonic ULTRADUO Z2
- YOUR BEST ROAD BUDDY -
The UltraDuo Z2 is the latest generation of our dual-lens dash cam that help you to drive with peace of mind and protect you and your car 24/7.
- SOLID REFERENCES IN COURTS & INSURANCE CLAIMS -
Whenever you’re driving out on the road, there is always a chance that you could get into a car accident. It could be anything from a rear-end collision caused by a distracted driver to a scratch or hit from a driver hurrying to back out of a parking lot. And, with so many factors, it can be difficult to place an insurance claim or provide footage that can be used in court when an accident happens.
We understand the stress and worry. That’s why we’ve invented the UltraDuo Z2. With our unique take on the smart yet simple idea of a dashcam, we want to provide the solution to driving accountability, one car at a time.
With UltraDuo Z2 set up in your car, you can breathe easy. Our two-lens dashboard camera with loop recording and auto file protection provides you with tremendous peace of mind while driving. Because you can record two directions at once, it’s easy to make sure that the information you need is caught on camera!
- 180-DEGREE ROTATIONAL LENS -
Our UltraDuo Z2 has two 180-degree rotatable lenses. With their extreme mobility, you can point them any direction you want! They record simultaneously. The left lens is a 160-degree wide angle lens and the right lens is a telephoto zoom-in lens capable of recording distances up to 164 feet (50 meters). This is helpful whether you want to record the traffic around your car, or, in a commercial edition, if you want to record your conversations with your passengers.
- LOOP RECORDING -
It’s irritating when your camera doesn’t record vital information because it doesn’t have room to store it. Unlike action cameras, digital cameras, or regular video recorders, our Z2 doesn’t have a problem with memory capacity. Unfortunately, we didn’t invent an unlimited memory storage system. However, we did equip our Z2 with the next best thing! Loop recording enables the Z2 to automatically overwrite the oldest, non-protected video files with the latest video. This means the Z2 can keep recording, even if its memory becomes full!
- HOT KEYS -
The Hot Key functions were designed to protect both you as the driver and the other drivers on the road. These keys are positioned around the 2 inch LCD display of the Z2 and are clearly labeled for easy accessibility.
1) The 'Mute' button stops and continues the sound recording feature on the Z2.
2) The 'File Protection' button allows you to protect certain footage from the Z2’s loop recording feature so you can save important information.
3) The 'EV Mode' button adjusts the exposure levels of both lenses from 0, which is the default setting, and gives you the exposure options of -1, -2, and +1, +2.
- 2-INCH DISPLAY -
The Z2 is equipped with a 2 inch LCD screen so it’s easy to operate the camera, see what the camera’s recording in real time, and watch playback later.
- PARKING MODE -
Enabling parking mode allows the camera to turn on automatically if it detects any external force on the car. This function lets the Z2 record any potentially threatening actions, whether by vandalism or a distracted driver in a parking lot. The camera’s sensitivity is adjustable and will only activate when the camera and car are turned off . This function only works if the Z2’s internal battery has enough power.
* Before you drive, simply connect the Z2 to your cigarette lighter outlet to charge the battery.
- AUTO FILE PROTECTION -
There are definitely moments in video footage that are more important than others, such as the moment of incident or impact. To ensure your vital files are saved, we added an auto file protection function to the Z2. Whenever the camera detects an external force on your car, the file protection feature will automatically lock the footage surrounding that moment, protecting it from being overwritten in the loop recording function.
- STANDARD VS COMMERCIAL -
The UltraDuo Z2 has two editions: standard and commercial. The standard edition features one wide angle lens and one telephoto lens. The commercial edition features two wide angle lenses.
This edition is designed with general users in mind. It works great for daily commutes!
Both lenses record simultaneously. The wide angle lens captures more up-close traffic and cars, while the telephoto lens records in a magnified way, to record objects that are farther way, like license plates, road obstructions, etc. Because both lenses are rotatable, you can record traffic ahead of you and behind you at the same time. No need to install two separate cameras – the Z2 is the only camera you need!
This edition is designed especially for taxi drivers or other professional drivers.
If you have an unwanted passenger, being able to record and save footage of your driver-passenger interaction can help protect you by giving you control. This commercial edition has two wide angle lenses for professional drivers to easily record both traffic and driver-passenger interaction at the same time. This camera includes a microphone so you can record any conversations in your car.
Important note: If you use the Z2 or any other camera to record inside of your commercial vehicle, you must have a warning sticker on your car to inform your passengers that they are being recorded
