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.
Infrared LED's
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.
Top of License Plate Frame
Adjustable Tilt
This means that the item can be tilted and adjusted to achieve the perfect view for the user.
Yes
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.
Plastic
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.
0.3 lx
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.

Great Backup Camera

June 19, 2011

I have had this camera installed on my Silverado since Winter 2010. So far I have had no issues. It has gotten wet, muddy and snowy. It works great for hooking up to my trailers. I did remove the depth lines on mine by switching the jumper. I have mine hooked to a 7in screen. I wouldn't want any smaller of a screen. Overall I have had no issues so far and i think it is a great product. Have thought about putting one elsewhere.

Works great so far

January 2, 2013

Installation was simple after finding a youtube video showing my vehicle. I he unit was installed with no drilling or modification to the car. After having it installed for 6 months or so, I really like it. It works good, provides the viewing that I wanted/needed and performs as expected.

There are cheaper products out there. Don't know if they would have been as suitable as this one or not. I am very pleased with this one and would recommend this unit.

Good value

December 25, 2012

Ordered and received the camera in very good time. The camera works as expected, and is now mounted on the front of my car. It helps to park against curbs and parking barriers to keep all the plastic that's now so prevalent on all cars from getting banged scratched and torn when trying to park especially in a low sprots car like the Nissan 370Z roadster.

Dissapointed.

December 9, 2012

I bought this cam to go with my lock pick hoping it would be an easy fit, which it was. The problem was that it only worked for about two weeks before dying on me. I still haven't got around to replacing it, but when I do I will be choosing another brand.

Hits and Misses

November 27, 2012

Only two complaints:
1. the connectors and splitter on the cable necessitated drilling too large a whole to run the cables into the car. If they cannot come up with some type of smaller intermediate connector to pass it through a smaller hole, they should at least include a 3/4" cap to seal the oversize hole around the cable.
2. the distance markings are rendered such that they would only be accurate if the camera was mounted several feet off the ground, rather than the lower position of the license plate, to which the camera is intended to be mounted.

November 27, 2012

I am very satisfied with the quality and performance of this product. The resolution and colour is excellent. The night vision works great. I've used it for over 6 months and it has withstood -20C winter and pressure washing without fogging up or cracking.

The only thing I needed for the install was longer license plate bolts.

Not bad for the price

November 20, 2012

Overall, it's a good camera for the price. My only issue is that it looks really washed out at night because of my license plate lights.

On a different vehicle, where the lights hit from a different angle, it may not be an issue at all.

GREAT camera.

October 23, 2012

The camera really is a great one. What suprised me the most about it was the fact that it had programmable guidelines. Meaning you can take the lines off if you want, but I don't know why you would want to? When the camera is hooked up correctly the guidelines on the camera are VERY accurate. I can park my truck within an inch of anything. Night vision looks good. I never have a problem viewing anything at anytime. Also the wide viewing angle is great. You can see things coming from a ways away BEFORE you can actually see them with your head. Sooo good stuff.

Works Well, No Problems So Far, But I found a Flaw!!

September 14, 2012

I would recommend this product. It does work well; however, I did find a flaw in it. If you would like to keep the wires from being noticeable in the back, behind your license plate, the back wire piece is much wider in one spot and I ended up cutting the wire in order to get it through a small hole I had to drill in my vehicle. It didnt make sense to drill a large hole to fit the whole piece through and then only a small wire going through it. This would lead to car leaking. I then had to assemble the wiring back to the original form and with not a lot of room to work with, it was very frustrating. I did get the camera to work, with only only a small hole that needed to be drilled. It would just be easier if the wider end was detachable.

Works OK

August 10, 2012

It is functional. Works OK. Yesterday, i had a huge rain downpour and still the cam is functional.

Only small design issue is that the wires have a wide hub to merge them. This means you need a much wider hole in the car to pass the wire even though the wire is thin before and after this hub (See the pics carefully).

Works when it feels like it...

August 9, 2012

Image is OK not great - not horrible, but after a few months it started working only when it feels like it. Stereo switches to cam view but the camera only comes on 30% of the time... Cable should be longer as well.

I picked this camera thinking it would be easy to install on the license plate. It was. It was easy to connect to my kenwood head unit in my F150. Works as it should. Have not used any other cameras to know how this one compares.
