General Features

Color Type
This will denote whether the displayed image is color or black & white.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Poor image quality

February 9, 2012

Don't be fooled by the "CCD" in the model name. This is definitely NOT a CCD camera. I purchased one of these thinking that it would be CCD. I wanted a good quality camera so I was willing to pay a little more. I liked that it is small and I wanted to mount it horizontally, which this one can do. It has the lines that are superimposed over the video to help you judge distance.

I am very disappointed by how lousy this camera really is. The resolution is low and pixilated. The contrast is too high so everything looks posterized and the colors are washed out. Even in bright sunlight it is hard to tell what you are looking at. In lower light you can only see very bright objects. Forget about seeing anything at night even with your backup lights on. The distance lines are very thick and bright so it is very difficult to see what is behind them so I turned them off. It is helpful that you CAN turn them off but it is a permanent solution because it involves cutting a wire.

I have tried to live with it for several months now but it is so useless that I have decided to buy a different camera that I will be installing when it arrives. If you don't care about the quality of the video then you can buy a CMOS camera for about half the price of this camera and probably get better results. It was a total waste of money for me. I would not recommend this camera under any circumstances.

Great Little Camera

April 26, 2010

This camera is small, probably less than 1" cubed, and works very well. After researching backup cameras I decided to spend the extra money on a CCD camera and I'm glad I did. It has great picture quality, even at night, and makes it a lot easier to back our minivan up in crowded parking lots. The camera has a very wide angle lens, so we can see nearly our entire bumper with it.
Installing the camera itself was pretty easy... it just screwed into the garnish trim above our license plate. Running the wiring to the front was a little harder, but it can be done with time.
