It's mounted inside the car, but it's a much better view than i have.Quote:

With the camera on the roof in the back, the view is like sitting in the backseat with your head on the rear deck. So it's much wider and higher up than you'd get with the mirror.
Like so... (though in actuallity, the cam ended up going a little further towards the back glass)
For instance, these cones are placed at the edges of the FOV of the camera.
I thought about going outside and mounting it in one of those fake shark fin antennas, the view would be amazing then (I tried it by taping it to the roof), but it's a lot of work and I don't want to drill through the roof at this point. By having it on the inside roof instead of the bumper, I can almost see to my rear tires.
There's more pics earlier in this thread
Not sure if it's in this thread, but there's a 2.5mb video here
If the rear tint was a problem, I'd imagine you could cut out a square in the tint if you wanted to have it inside. Though you might be surprised, some of these cameras are very sensitive, might work even through it.
