General Features

Color Type
This will denote whether the displayed image is color or black & white.
Color
Night Vision
Some cameras are equipped with additional lighting for improved performance in low light conditions. LED lights will drastically improve range visibility and maintain a color image. Infrared LED lights have an even further visible range but lack a color image; this is a true night vision feature.
No
Sensor Type
Currently, cameras will typically use a CMOS, CCD or CMD sensor type. A CMOS camera is your most common type due to its low cost and quality performance. CMOS cameras also use much less power than a CCD but are more susceptible to noise interference. A CCD camera is much more sensitive than a CMOS camera so the pictures are cleaner and less grainy and perform much better in low light situations. A CMD camera is right in between the two as it has a better image quality over CMOS cameras and a comparable picture quality to the CCD cameras without being quite as expensive.
Resolution (pixels)
A display's pixel resolution defines its ability to resolve fine details. Digital TVs and projectors measure screen resolution in pixels. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the picture will be.
Video Output
This is how the video signal is outputted to the receiver. Most items use RCA composite cables, while other units use wireless transmitters or other video cables.
RCA Composite Cable
Mounting Type
This is the manner in which the unit is attached to the vehicle.
Remote Mount
Adjustable Tilt
This means that the item can be tilted and adjusted to achieve the perfect view for the user.
No
Weatherproof
Weatherproof items are protected from the elements. They usually are treated or coated with special materials that help protect them. Normally, weatherproof units are sealed to keep any water from getting inside.
Yes
Reverse Image
Mirror Image is feature which horizontally flips the camera's image before it is output to a display. This is necessary when the camera is being used as a backup camera so that the orientation of viewed image is the same as if the driver is looking in a rear view mirror. Cameras without this feature are to be used to view images in front of the driver.
Parking Guidelines
Parking guidelines is a feature which displays guidelines over the image from the camera to assist the driver with parking. The guidelines help to determine distance between the camera and an obstruction.
Built-in Microphone
Some cameras have built-in microphones in order to provide an audio feedback of the environment outside, or to record audio when using the camera for security purposes.
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Black
Frame Material
This is the material that the license plate frame is made of.
Camera Housing Material
This is the material that the housing of the camera is made out of.
Minimum Illuminance
Essentially the amount, or intensity of, the visible light required for a clear picture. A lower Lux rating designates a camera that will function better with less light.
Lens Distortion Correction
Lens distortion correction is a feature which allows for the viewing of faraway objects and an uninterrupted horizontal (left to right) path without the need for a fish-eye view.
Screen Size
This is the size of the monitor on the unit. It is measured diagonally and in inches. The bigger the number the larger the screen.

This camera rocks!

April 5, 2010

Installed on 2010 Toyota Prius. The good: Top quality construction and performance. I especially like the lines that are projected on the screen that show you how close you are to an object behind you. The bad: The connectors are large- relatively speaking. You're going to need to be creative in your hole drilling to make the installation professional-looking.

Good camera bad bracket

August 8, 2012

The camera is pretty good. It has been through several car washes and rain and seems to be OK. It's nice that it has the mirror view on/off feature and the distance markers. Only thing that I dont like is the bracket. It's metal and does not adjust unless you bend it. This makes it difficult to properly align the camera or even mount it in some places.

Lock Pick Mini Cam 221

July 24, 2012

Good camera for the money, easy to install with good directions. Nice features with optional distance gauge and easy reversal for front or rear use. Mounting bracket has to be bent if adjustment needed; would be easier if hinge was available in mounting bracket.

Works OK

August 21, 2011

Installed on 2010 Dodge Ram. Picture quality is just "OK", the images are not as sharp and clear as the factory installed camera on our Toyota car. Still it will give you a view of what's behind you.

Not waterproof

May 25, 2011

I purchased this mini cam this spring, and have been using it for about 3 months. After washing the car, the camera became hazy and the image is useless. I've waited over time to see if it would clear, but the image hasn't changed. I even tried using a hot-air gun to heat it up and try to burn off moisture to no avail. Will have to replace it...

Great during the day

February 26, 2011

This unit works great during the day. At night though it is pretty fuzzy. That may be an install problem, since I installed it. I am not crazy about the lines, they are a bit distracting. Overall it's a good product.

Excellent Camera

September 30, 2010

I use this with my pioneer z110bt nav unit. I can leave the camera running while driving and full screen when in reverse. Basically camera is always on, not just when backing up and after 6 months it works perfectly. Lots of rain where I live too. Works at night, and rain/sun doesn't affect it. The visual lines showing distance is a great feature for backing up as well. I'd buy another one if I were to add a front camera or of this one failed on me. Offered and paid about $73
