Adding a rear view camera to your vehicle is not only made easy with by us for anyone with a mechanical aptitude, but it is an extremely important safety feature to add to your vehicle. Accidents from backing up amount to an astonishing 44% of children’s deaths that do not involve a road accident.
The Department Of Transportation is expected to confirm its recommendation to Congress that all vehicles must include back up cameras. The fact is; it is impossible to see everything that is behind you. All vehicles have blind spots, so to keep from backing over someone or something, a backup camera for your vehicle only makes sense.
Our universal lip mount camera kits come in two styles; CMOS and CCD. Here are some pros and cons to each:
The biggest advantage of a CMOS sensor is that it is typically less expensive than a CCD sensor. A CMOS camera also has weaker blooming effects if a light source has overloaded the sensitivity of the sensor, causing the sensor to bleed the light source onto other pixels.
Since a CMOS video sensor typically captures a row at time within approximately 1/60th or 1/50th of a second (depending on refresh rate) it may result in a “rolling shutter” effect, where the image is skewed (tilted to the left or right, depending on the direction of camera or subject movement). For example, when tracking a car moving at high speed, the car will not be distorted but the background will appear to be tilted. A frame-transfer CCD sensor does not have this problem, instead capturing the entire image at once into a frame store.
