    Rear view camera MBUC1 - disable autodimming feature? (from mp3car.com)

    I have the MBUC1 Image sensor as a rear view camera: http://store.mp3car.com/product_p/com-051.htm

    It autocorrects the brightness, but it always corrects it to become to dark on my Xenarc. It always looks perfect for a split second before the camera begins to autocorrect the image and make everything dimmer.

    Is there any way to disable this?

    Camera has one 12V DC input and one RCA video output.

Alot of small items that MP3car sells is wayyyyy over priced, I wish they would review and compare thier products to other and adjust accordingly. On the other hand thier large items like MoBos and screens and what not, are very competively priced.

    Yeah, I price shopped pretty hard for everything else, but for the camera, I assumed that "this is the best one that MP3car recommends and it doesn't have a recognizable brand, so I won't be able to identify it anywhere else easily," and didn't try. Doh.

    And don't worry, the wall is fine. My head is much smaller. *resumes banging*
