I'm interested in this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Backu...QQcmdZViewItem
What do you think about that? Don't have that much experience with it.
Pics would be nice if you can.
At night: very impressive... you can see VERY far (more than 100ft, I see the house all the way across the street from my garage), even in low light conditions. But if you have a car behind you, with its light ON, it will 'blind you'. You will only see white on your screen. but I think this owuld be expected of any IR camera. I don't really care, as I use it to back-up only, and not as a replacement for rearview mirror.
Overall image quality is probably in the 5/10 scale. A USB camera looks a lot better (7/10 scale). The image is kind of wached out too, so it doesn't have a lot of color and pep to it.
For the price, I think this was a good deal, and it serves its purpose. Sorry do not have pics, might post some in a few days.

Bottom line: You get what you pay for. Viewing angle is likelya lie, and image quality is weak.

Any ideas for putting a PC in this? :)
I finally found the info on that voltage regulator I was talking about.
It is manufactured by Datel, and is model #UER-12/1250-D12.
It is a 12volt output DC/DC converter, 1250mA, with a 9-24V input range. Minimum of 82% efficient. These things are supposedly pretty pricey, but should be the perfect POL regulator for monitors and cameras. 1.25 amps is cutting it close, but I'm sure it'll do. I've heard you can get samples for free, might try that first.
The above response was in regards to a poster who parks his manual transmission car, putting it into reverse .
Reasons to park with car in gear.
Well besides it being a double-fail-safe type of thing in case the parking cable breaks- OR you forgot to put the parking brake ON.... it's really a good idea on steep hills.... UNLESS you have a GERMAN CAR.
I worked on German cars for years- and you can park them on a wall going straight up- and the parking brake will hold.
On most non-german cars the parking brakes are pretty weak. I just got a car the other day... parking brake is a joke on it. It's auto trans and if I put the brake on first, then put it in PARK I can feel the car MOVE /Creep until the parking pawl /slack in the drivetrain stops the car from moving.
On a German car if I did the same- Car wouldn't move /creep...
