Great for robots!

October 24, 2011

I bought this camera to use in a robot. We needed a fairly wide range of view, and also water-proofing.
The camera performed as we expected, making it a lot easier to control the robot from long distances.

I installed this on a 2006 dodge grand caravan. Easy install! The install was most of the day because i had to go from the back of the van to the front which it a lot of running of the power and video wire plus im a very very neat installer.. Most of the time was me being neat, You can't beat the price for this camera! This is a great place to shop.

Used this camera several times on different vehicles. Works great. And very inexpensive. Works as good as any of the expensive cams out there. No night vision but thats what back up lights are for. Lights it up just fine at a fraction of the price.

"Meh"

August 30, 2011

I guess I would recommend the camera based on the price, but I'm sure there are better out there, I just hadn't looked. The camera so far hasn't had any problems from the weather, (it's been thru snow, rain, and heat) No issues with fogging or water leakage. It does tend to droop on its pivot bracket from time to time, but that is simply because the screw that tightens the pivoting action often comes loose. Otherwise the only problems I've had with it appear to be connection issues to the receiver, (can't confirm that they are caused by the camera). So yea, it's a decent product.

Bad Cam

May 20, 2013

I'm not saying this cam is horrible, but I guess I got a lemon. It only lasted for 5 months then the picture went out. I plugged the cam into various other systems and same result. The camera just died. The mount it came with wasn't very user friendly either. I won't buy this same cam to replace it. I will purchase a different brand.

Clear Camera

December 12, 2011

I would recommend this camera, as it shows a nice clear view of the back of my F250 when I put my truck in reverse. It shows nice and clear on my Sony In-Dash automatically (due to the back-up input on my Sony XAV). If you want this feature at night, then DO NOT order this camera. It needs light to work correctly.

September 29, 2011

I mounted this to the back of my Bed topper to help me hitch to my Boat. Its like cheating! It works incredibly well. I also use it to back into tight parking spaces. It has a low light feature, so even at night you can see really well. Its very easy to mount, and also it hooks to you car's electrical system pretty easily as well.

so so

November 18, 2011

Unit works fine but picture quality is not very good. Very blurry. Warranty sticker is on the top of the unit so it is in plain site when you mount the camera. i had to put electrical tape over it so that it looks decent. It however did fire up and work just fine.

I personally wish i woulda spent a little more money to get something that you can actually make anything out on the screen. I swapped to my buddies dei unit and the picture was clear as day.

Jensen impressed me again

May 18, 2011

I tried this little guy out on my car for a bit, it's not mine but a friends. I had fun using it though I really didn't need assistance backing up. It works just like all the other ones and it's cheaper. My Jensen Head unit I own cost me roughly $350 from Sonic's ebay store and it does everything the big $ headunits do and sometimes more.

Works good, like it should but one flaw

December 13, 2011

I have had this camera for about 3 months now and it works great, and does what it is suppossed to do. However, I started noticing that the picture has become blurry, after checking out what the problem was, I have found out that there is water inside the camera. It does not seal well. Now I have a blurry patchy picture, will be looking into another camera, I may actually spend the money this time. But it does good, and does what it is suppossed to do.

what do I need for a monitor?
A shopper on Aug 19, 2015
Best Answer: You would be better off buying a kit that comes with the moitor. But any of the screens that run on 12 volts and have a composite video input will do. Match the camera pixel output with the monitor pixels. The more pixels the better clarity.
