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.

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.

Solid Product

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.

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).

Great Addition

May 28, 2011

I bought 2 of these, one for my car, a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse with a Jensen VM9314 head unit, and one for my girlfriends 1996 Ford Mustang with a Boss BV9999BI head unit. It works great with both so as far as it being universal, it truly is. So long as you have a single RCA input for the camera it will be good to go.

For the install of both cars I t-tapped the camera pos. and neg. wires into the backup lights pos. and grnd. wires at the tail light. This way the camera only powers on when the car is in reverse only. I ran the RCA cable to the head units and plugged it in. It was that simple.

I gave 3 stars on durability only because itís been installed for 2 days. It claims to be waterproof and feels solid, so we will see. I waterproofed the connections so theoretically it should be fine. It works great for day and night, and the distance meter works great. I have no complaints.

Great Camera, nice features

July 24, 2010

I Just purchased this camera last week, and i really like the wide angle of its viewing capabilities. It is a fish-eye type of lens which really helps. It was relatively easy to install. I have it connected to my Jensen vm9512 which is no longer available from sonic electronix. (a newer version is available) this is my first backup cam and it seems like a great product. I hope it lasts without problems but I don't think there will be any problems. Great for large vehicle or even a sedan. If you want it for behind your trailer, you may need additional rca cable. I installed in a sedan and had a few feet of slack from the plate to the cd deck even with the wires fully hidden away.

Excellent choice!

July 7, 2010

This is a great camera with superior view up, down, left and right. I've replaced my E*** camera and this one is a champ! Digital markers (shows approx. distance) will make it look like a factory option; day/night video looks excellent. I can see my rear bumper and all of the back view as well. Long enough wiring supplied as well.

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.

Good Camera for the price

December 12, 2011

Camera output is not very colorful, but very clear view. Only one real compliant and may end up replacing camera because the size of the body of the camera will block the state name (which is illegal in AZ) when mounted to the top of license plate.
