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.
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 (Audio & Video)
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.
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.
Camera Housing Material
This is the material that the housing of the camera is made out of.
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.

Great Rear View Camera

August 6, 2012

Clarion is a very great car audio name. I have lots of Clarion products in my vehicle. I have the Clarion NZ500, so I had to get this camera to pair with it. It is clear and it helps me out alot since my windows are tinted (VERY DARK). I would also like to thank Sonic Electronix for always having the best products with the best prices.

Awesome rear view camera!!!

March 18, 2012

This is by far the best rear view camera I've had! The Clarion CC4001U is definitely a quality product! Unlike other non name brand cameras on the market today, the CC4001U is well built, protected from the elements and very sleek in design. The cameras picture quality is spectacular and it also works flawlessly when paired with a Clarion head unit (mine is paired with the Clarion NX500). Installation was very simple! Connect your red power wire, connect the black ground wire and hook up the yellow video cable to your head unit. I would definitely recommend this product to anybody who is looking for the best in rear view cameras.
