This matches our top 7 inch rear view monitor with our 600TVL number plate camera. It is a popular combination for pickup trucks and some vans. This design of number plate camera has a poor reputation for allowing water to get into the camera. This is because the case is usually made from plastic and the design of it means they are hard to form a seal due to the softness of the plastic. Our version of the camera is made by one of the best know reversing camera manufacturers in China. It uses a metal casing which give it excellent resistance to water ingress. The only issues we have had with this camera is from fitting issues - usually crushed cables.
The camera uses a modern 600TVL CMOS 1/3 inch sensor. These are as good as the CCD sensors which are slowly being discontinued by the manufacturers. It has been matched with a high quality aspheric lens to reduce the "fish eye" effect that wide angled cameras produce. The high power IR LEDs give it good night vision in areas where there is low light, aided by the vehicle lights. The day view has good colour reproduction where the image consists of a balance of colours. If you are reversing up to a hedge then like almost all reversing cameras you can lose the greens as the auto white balance struggles. The 4 pin connector makes a waterproof joint which makes fitting to vehicles easy as you can run the cable along the chassis without the need to bring it inside. Sometimes the camera has sound and sometimes it is without. If sound is important then please check with us.
