    I find I don't really need the IR emitters. The trick I use, is to press on the brakes lightly when I am reversing. The red light works just as good as the white light when it is dark out. There is no way I would have installed a reverse cam if it had to be the huge ones with the lights around them.

    ^^^^
    That looks like an excellent install.
    Was it tricky drilling the cover and housing to fit the camera? Also does your brake light look much different (have a big black spot in the middle of it)?

    Not much difference, the 3rd brake light had 3 bulbs in it originally... the way it is now, it's only slightly dimmer than before. Hardly noticeable.

    I bought an extra third brake light from a the classifieds section of another forum in case I screwed mine up. I ended up using a step drill and got it to work the first time without problems. I used black silicone to seal the outside, and epoxy to secure the rear of the camera in the housing. The reflector is still in tact, so the other 2 bulbs still reflect some in the center outputting a little light.

    On a side note, I contacted Ford spare parts here in Australia as the Ford Territory (4x4) comes standard with a reversing camera, mounted in a nice little housing under the trim on the rear hatch. I thought perhaps it might be something that I could use in my reversing camera setup. The conversation went as follows:

    Me - Hi I've damaged my reversing camera on my Territory and am wanting a replacement
    Ford Parts Guy - I've never had to sell a replacement before. Let me find the part number and price
    Me - Ok, now worries
    *A couple of minutes pass by*
    For Parts Guy - So you've damaged the camera?
    Me - Yes
    Ford Parts Guy - A replacement is going to cost you Aud$1057.43
    Me - *silence*
    Ford Parts Guy - That's for the camera itself
    Me - Oh ok, I might learn to live with it broken then. Thanks

    Moral of the story. Stick with ebay or jaycar

    I wanted a really good camera since I don't have a rearview mirror, & my camera is my only view... all of the rear view cameras out there are just not real high end at all, I went with a sony superHAD 1/3" chip camera, 520 lines resolution, .02 lux native without infrared assist... it came in a large outdoor security camera case that I took apart & chopped down, then built my own bracket to mount it, isolated on rubber vibration dampeners & added an adjustment for finetuning the angle

    this camera see's through the wiper hole in my tailgate... since I don't actually have to look through the window, there was no need for a wiper anyway... from outside you don't even see the camera, theres a tinted glass inside the hole, the camera is inside...
