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.
672 x 520 
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.

Jensen ACA 500 Back up Camera

July 15, 2013

I bought this camera online from Sonic Electronix and had it installed at Best Buy. The camera is displayed on a 7" Magellan Roadmate 1700 GPS which I obtained from Tiger Direct refurbished for $87.
I mounted it on a Pro Clip mount in the middle of the dash so it does not obstruct the view out the windshield.

The picture is very clear in the day light and has blue lines that outline where you'll end up, but is almost useless at night.

My Sony camera that I had put on my minivan although not as clear at night is so much better than the field of snow on the Jensen.
