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.
Infrared LED's
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.
640 x 480 
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.
Top of License Plate Frame
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.
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.
0.5 lx
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.

good but not

January 16, 2014

The camera is great especially since it is after market and can be mounted easily. But the sensor are a major problem. If mounted on a license plate that is slightly recessed the sensors must pick up the inset even when the sensors are readjusted so they don't do this, they will still beep and say "stop, stop" continuously. When I had it installed professionally, the installers had to disconnect one of the sensors as it was going off all of the time as though it was sensing an object less than a foot away. With only one sensor it now works once in a while but I am at my wits end as it doesn't say "stop,stop" when in reverse but when driving down the road it starts continuously saying "stop, stop" or 6.5 ft or 1 ft. and beeps constantly. This has been a problem with this unit on previous reviews. My only recourse is the use without the sensors but this is why I bought the unit. I could mount the sensors flush in the bumper as well but I would inquire into, maybe this is a controller box issue?

Very nice camera and picture. Night vision isn't as good obviously as the day image but more than adequate to do the job. Overall, very nice. Easy installation and setup. Recommend to all who want very nice rear view camera setup without breaking the bank.
