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.

Save your money

December 20, 2011

This camera is garbage, even when it worked you could hardly make out the image. After the first time the temperature dropped the image flipped upside down and is completely fuzzy. Should have spent more money.

great price

June 1, 2011

Imagine this camera about the size of a medium spool of thread. Perfect for my flush-mount application in the plastic panel of my trunk. For those of you who have an inch and a half of depth, this thing is great. The exposed flush-mount lens is about the size of a quarter. The wide angle lens is just about right (my previous one was too fish-eye). Great clarity. Got it for 20 bucks on sale, and like all else i've purchased from Sonix, it was a really good price with quick shipping. Another repeat customer.

Didn't expect for it to be as good as it was for the price. VERY clear image, wide viewing angle, very easy to hide.

Excellent Back-up Camera

August 19, 2012

Highly recommend, easy installation and works great day and night--night view is exceptionally bright and clear with color.

Cons: Needs add'l hardware to secure the camera; viewing angel is sufficient but could be wider at closer distance.

Looks Good but no shelf life

December 7, 2011

I bought this camera last year while putting in a new car stereo. The first one I recieved went out in the first 2 days of installing. I thought the specific camera was defective and had a new one sent. One year later the 2nd Camera just went out and now I have to track another one down that will fit in the hole. Great price but too easily broken, avoid this camera.
