    I'm using one that I got from digitalww.com

    The link to the one I'm using is : Color Mini Camera

    It works well and has the desired output.

    Hey Jeff,

    Would you happen to have any screen shots of this camera in use?

    I'm thinking about getting one of those too but the screen shots Armen has are the same screen shots from almost all the cameras.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one curious about this.

    Mind Scream out

    Jeff, where do you have this mounted? Inside or outside? Are you using it for backing up purposes? I really want to get a cam and cheesebox and do the auto switching when in reverse.

    One suggestion that I would highly recommend is to spend the extra cash for a wide-angle camera(wide angle = >90 degree field of view). I believe that without a wide-angle lens, a backup camera is pretty much worthless.

    Digitalww.com sells a camera that has a massive 150 degree field of view - though it's expensive. There are some sellers on ebay that have wide-angle reverse cameras (the type that would replace your trunk keyhole) for <$50.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the replies guys, ive seen the cams on digitalww and they look just the ticket, shame i cant find a UK seller, but if i cant i will take the plunge there.
    Angle isnt a big problem because the cam will be looking almost straight down.

    can anyone who owns this camera shows some pictures of the angle you mounted it at, and the actual screenshot? I am thinking about replacing my trunk lock with this unit, but not sure if the straight horizontal angle will allow me to view the ground.

    I guess not too many people have a rearview cam installed, and if they do, they don't have this model. The pics on the digitalww site seem to be the same for every cam, so it's hard to judge what you can see.
