Very good camera!

I installed this on a 2006 dodge grand caravan. Easy install! The install was most of the day because i had to go from the back of the van to the front which it a lot of running of the power and video wire plus im a very very neat installer.. Most of the time was me being neat, You can't beat the price for this camera! This is a great place to shop.

VS
Bad Cam

I'm not saying this cam is horrible, but I guess I got a lemon. It only lasted for 5 months then the picture went out. I plugged the cam into various other systems and same result. The camera just died. The mount it came with wasn't very user friendly either. I won't buy this same cam to replace it. I will purchase a different brand.

I ordered this camera to replace another brand camera that failed. When I installed it the color and clarity was so much better than the camera it replaced that I ordered the second camera to replace another working camera. Very pleased and it was inexpensive.

Pro's camera is expensive, easy to install.
con's camera is not water tight, so every time it rains the lens fogs up until it drys out. No distance markers

When the lens is clear camera works well

Used this camera several times on different vehicles. Works great. And very inexpensive. Works as good as any of the expensive cams out there. No night vision but thats what back up lights are for. Lights it up just fine at a fraction of the price.

The cable has a rather large section that can make installation difficult if you have to pass it through any holes. Otherwise quite happy with it and it is preforming well in my Grand Prix.

I have had this camera for about 3 months now and it works great, and does what it is suppossed to do. However, I started noticing that the picture has become blurry, after checking out what the problem was, I have found out that there is water inside the camera. It does not seal well. Now I have a blurry patchy picture, will be looking into another camera, I may actually spend the money this time. But it does good, and does what it is suppossed to do.

I would recommend this camera, as it shows a nice clear view of the back of my F250 when I put my truck in reverse. It shows nice and clear on my Sony In-Dash automatically (due to the back-up input on my Sony XAV). If you want this feature at night, then DO NOT order this camera. It needs light to work correctly.

Unit works fine but picture quality is not very good. Very blurry. Warranty sticker is on the top of the unit so it is in plain site when you mount the camera. i had to put electrical tape over it so that it looks decent. It however did fire up and work just fine.

I personally wish i woulda spent a little more money to get something that you can actually make anything out on the screen. I swapped to my buddies dei unit and the picture was clear as day.

I bought this camera to use in a robot. We needed a fairly wide range of view, and also water-proofing.
The camera performed as we expected, making it a lot easier to control the robot from long distances.

I mounted this to the back of my Bed topper to help me hitch to my Boat. Its like cheating! It works incredibly well. I also use it to back into tight parking spaces. It has a low light feature, so even at night you can see really well. Its very easy to mount, and also it hooks to you car's electrical system pretty easily as well.

I guess I would recommend the camera based on the price, but I'm sure there are better out there, I just hadn't looked. The camera so far hasn't had any problems from the weather, (it's been thru snow, rain, and heat) No issues with fogging or water leakage. It does tend to droop on its pivot bracket from time to time, but that is simply because the screw that tightens the pivoting action often comes loose. Otherwise the only problems I've had with it appear to be connection issues to the receiver, (can't confirm that they are caused by the camera). So yea, it's a decent product.

I tried this little guy out on my car for a bit, it's not mine but a friends. I had fun using it though I really didn't need assistance backing up. It works just like all the other ones and it's cheaper. My Jensen Head unit I own cost me roughly $350 from Sonic's ebay store and it does everything the big $ headunits do and sometimes more.
