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.
CCD
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.
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.
Yes
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.
No
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Black
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.

Sony XA-R800C

September 4, 2013

I was not overall impressed with the video output of this device. I had it installed in my Honda Crz to provide backup assistance, as well as a NavTool I had professionally installed. It definitely falls short of OEM quality which surprised me as Sony makes solid products but it does the job. I feel there may be better images out there but definitely at a price. At under $100 this will do the job. In regards to the camera I felt it may have been a bit odd shaped.

I bought this to go with my Sony XAV 70BT and it worked right out of the box. Fitting was relatively easy with not much problems encountered. It works very well both in day and night times and gives a wide area of view at the back. I would definitely buy it again.

Pretty good camera

December 1, 2011

Ordered this camera on 6/2/11. Installed in a 2005 Camry XLE connected to a Pioneer DVD 4200. Installation fairly simple. I found the camera to be fairly large for what I would have liked. I ended up taking off the chrome piece above the plate and cutting a slot in it so that I could recess the camera a bit so it did not look so out of place. Still sticks out a bit more than I'd like, but does not look too bad. Came with enough wire to hook into the front of the car. Have the module mounted in the truck behind a panel. Camera picture is good. I found that in bright sun you can get quite a bit of haze/wash out on the picture. Still viewable fine, but a bit distracting. Also, with the sun hitting the bumper of the car I can get a sun spot glare dot and line from the reflection off the paint. Still see behind no problem, but leads me to believe the cameras ablity to deal with light conditions is somewhat limited. Night viewing with reverse lights is super. Have had the camera a while now and (knock on wood) it is still going strong. Have washed the car by hand with lots of suds and wash mit, been in pretty good rain, ice/snow and has not developed a problem as I've heard about other cameras out there. Overall I'd say I'd buy it again for the price. Considering getting a Tacoma as well and installing the same head unit. If I do, I would not worry about getting this camera for that as well.
