Transcend DrivePro Body 60 Review

No comments

Transcend has been heavily invested in its dashcam and bodycam products, and we’ve seen the company contribute to the local police force before. And since we’re on that subject, Transcend lent us the DrivePro Body 60 for review, so why not do that?

PACKAGING


Transcend’s packaging is typically the same across the board, and for the DrivePro Body 60, it’s no different. It still follows the company’s usual compact box design printed with the necessary info perusing customers would need.

Inside the box, there’s the DrivePro Body 60 itself, a wall charger, a holster, and a 3.5mm plug to USB type A for data.

DESIGN


We’ve encountered some of Transcend’s DrivePro Body cameras before, and the DrivePro Body 60’s design is not much different from those. It basically features the same fame factor, button placements and design, but this time it has a different camera attachment. The DrivePro Body 60 looks to be designed for public safety professionals because of the camera attachment mount.


As far as build quality is concerned, the DrivePro Body 60 looks and feels rugged. It’s designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions with its IP67 rating for protection against dust and water.

PERFORMANCE & USAGE


The DrivePro Body 60 is equipped with a Sony Exmor™ sensor. Transcend says it’s capable of capturing high-resolution images even in low light, and we’ll put that one to the test. You may check out the recordings below:

A few things to note, however. the DrivePro Body 60 features a camera that would need mounting in order for it to work as you want it to. It can rotate 360° from the mount, but it can only tilt so much. You'll also be heavily relying on the app, which is connected via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi if you want to take full advantage of the device. There's also 64GB of internal storage, and each 3-minute 1080p video will generally use about 166MB of space.

CONCLUSION

Transcend has been establishing its foothold in the body cam and dashcam market that we’ve seen plenty of its offerings in this segment. And with the DrivePro Body 60, it’s another welcomed product for those in the public safety department. Its ease of use and durability definitely bring plenty to the table. Now, when it comes to value for money, we can’t really say as we can’t find it readily available in the market. This might only be available for deployment for those in the public safety department, but if you happen to encounter one by chance and are looking for a bodycam, it may be worth your time, if the price is right of course.
