    wow, nice install

    does it help alot in guessing the distance to others and do you also see enough of the edges of your car?
    i always wanted to put my camera on the cargo door in order to see the bumper from above... do you have any screenshots of what you see?

    cheers

    Carpc is acting up slightly so no action shots for now...

    The distance udgement takes a bit getting used to... the angle is really wide, but I guess once you get the hang of it it is really useful... I'm afraid of getting over-confident due to this "extra tool"

    Are those 100% waterproof? Any possibility of messing them up when washing your car?

    RoyN I'm dying for some pics of the camera in action. Pretty Please?

    Anyway I have been on the hunt for a good camera and I have found the one from yanlab and another on ebay.

    I'm skeptical about this one, can someone please help me not make a stupid purchase. Heres what I've got :

    1. 380 tv lines
    2. 100 degree viewing angle
    3. Infra red

    Total $86.00 w/shipping

    Problems: It dosen't say CCD anywhere. (e-mailing seller) REPLY: Yep it's CMOS.

    Turns to black and white at night. (not sure if this is good or bad)

    Almost forgot-

    Make sure it is CCD.... most likely it isnt if the seller doesnt outright say it or if he keeps beating round the bush...

    I'll try to get pics... the resolution is really very good...

    Finally got around to getting the lcd in so I tried out my SAVV cam.

    Here's a pic that gives you a good idea of the FOV.



    There's also a 4mb quicktime video here of my holding it and angling it around the cabin to see how it looks if anyone is curious.

    QT Camera

    Either open it in a new window or save it to disk.

    I contacted these folks about the StarVision camera, and they told me the high end model is a 40 degree camera (bummer!)

    I then asked if any of their cameras was 100 degress FOV or greater. I go no response.
