General Features

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

Euless, Tx

Very expensive but a premium product

December 21, 2014

I bought this to use as a front camera on my F-150. I already have the factory backup camera connected to my DNX890HD. If you want a camera you can control from your Kenwood head unit, this one works great. You can even program it from the head unit (except designating it the front camera).

Wichita, KS

Great camera, instructions a bit cryptic

June 12, 2016

I purchased this camera to be used as a forward facing camera so that when parking I would know how close my front fascia was to the curb or tire block.
It works fine once you figure out how to select one of the views to use. The instructions are not very good about explaining the built in menu from the camera. My suggestion is try every setting so you know what each of them does so you know what to look for. Read all of the instructions because they are not necessarily in the order you might think they should be.
That being said it's a great camera with an incredible long cable. So much so that you are almost sure to have excess. Just bundle it and hide it, do not attempt to shorten it because they either use fiber optics or extremely thin wire and you will ruin the cable. A pretty pricey mistake.

Is the CMOS-320 rear camera compatible with my Kenwood KVT-512 car stereo?

does this camera have night vision?
Bruce A on Dec 27, 2015
Best Answer: There is nothing advertised or in the spec's that claims night vision that I can find. I have this camera installed as a back-up camera. Of course, the back-up lights provide enough illumination at night for the camera to provide a clear rearward view. I believe that anything with "night vision" would include an infra-red device (camera).
