120 deg Wide-Angle Rear View Reverse Camera off Ebay - REVIEW
I won this rear view camera off eBay and I plan to do a helpful review for everyone.
First.. There were two sellers I found selling this identical camera. This seller I bought it off was a couple dollars more but said you'd receive it in 2-3 business days and I did.. He shipped from California and I got it in two days.. I was very happy about that..
One thing that sucked and I'm still working on is that it came with NO instructinos. I have been emailing the seller asking questions and he promptly returns them.
Here is some pics:
My question to him was how do I power the thing? Here was his reply:
"Thanks for your mail.
It could be powered directly by mobile power system DC 12V.
Here is the photo for your reference.
So you may cut the power cord of the camera by yourself to connect to the vehicle power system.
There are three rings that you could mount it into the keyhole of your vehicle.
If you have any further question, please do not hesitate to mail me again.

Hesistant to cut something that I wasn't supposed to so I didn't jack it up I emailed him again and asked him if there were two wires (a ground and a hot) and if I was supposed to just snip the red connector off. And his reply was:
There are two wire, the red jack is for power cord, and the yellow one is for video output.
Please see the label of the power adapter in the photo.
The fire wire(positive) is inside, and the ground(negative) is outside.
I'm still not sure what he's talking about.. If I cut this red RCA off and strip the wire back is there going to be two wires to tie into??
