I will be returning this item.
From that angle it seems like only 90 degrees viewing angle but this is okay for my purpose.
Excelent image quality!, works perfect even at night only with retro light.

Have a 'home grown' setup I created for my RV using a camera and touchscreen monitor... for both backup/reverse cam and computer. Recently my camera died and I needed to find a replacement. Gave this one a whirl and I am not disappointed I did. First surprise is the size... this thing is really small! Very compact and seems like outstanding quality. Was plug and play with both video (RCA) and power from my previous camera. When looking for placement, I discovered I could slide under the left rear light console (lights/brakes) and use the mounting screw for the lights to attach the camera. only extra work needed was reversing the clamp on the camera to get the wire out of the way (ie. undo the two philips screws and move the wire to inside vs outside the bracket). Once hooked up it worked like a champ. Amazing field of view (my old cam was about 90 deg), great color and brightness (despite 35' cable) and excellent image. The permanent guide lines work great for me. I have no clue why RVrs would pay for larger/more expensive systems when this is out there... very impressed & highly recommended.

For the money you have to give it 5 stars. I have read all of the other reviews and would say that it is always possible to get a defective part these days. Always buy from Amazon and you can easily return it for a refund or exchange. No, I do not work for Amazon, as I am a retired Engineering Professor. The installation is simple and if you have the right tools it should take less than 2 hours to completely install. If you are not familiar with working on cars, then hire a professional installer to do it. Make sure that your video unit is equipped with either the video backup trigger for backup camera installation or separate video input. If you don't want to install it under the trunk lip and want to install it on a surface mount then all you need to do is remove the screws from the mount and rotate it 180 degrees.

OK back to the camera and installation on my 2010 Mercedes S400. I had purchased a kit from MidCity Electronics to give me the video feed to my LCD OEM screen. That took only about 30 minutes to install. The camera took longer because I had to remove the interior trim from the trunk to remove the plastic piece under the trunk lid. I drilled a hole for the camera head to fit through the plastic and then mounted the camera using hot glue. This is hidden on the back side of the plastic piece and will allow for easy removal if I need to install another camera. The powder feed was gotten from the rear of the car using a fused 5 amp/12 volt position on the circuit breaker. Because the electronics from the Mercedes automatically senses that there is a rear camera installed, I did not need the backup light voltage to trigger the camera. This feature is handy because the Video In Motion from MidCity can be triggered while driving to see behind your car.

I received the camera and was happy and impressed visually with the construction for the price. It is metal, and has a black chrome look that looks great on my new Acadia. I mounted it under the overhang just over the license plate. The image looked great too....until it rained.

It wasn't even a heavy rain, just a light rain, and it's been damp here for 3 days with light showers since. The day it rained the image was blurry as heck, so I thought it was just dirty, and went and cleaned it. Didn't help. Got to noticing, that it's all fogged up INSIDE the camera, and it's been like that for 3 days now, so the camera is useless.

How pretty it looks from the outside means nothing if it's functionally not usable. I can't really recommend this to anyone, even at this cheap price. Having a completely sealed housing on a backup camera is obviously a necessity. Things ARE going to get wet back there from time to time.

If I can make time to get it off during the Amazon return period, I'll definitely be returning it.

6 MONTH UPDATE 08/14/2012 Thought I would update this 6 months later now, since in the end, I've been too busy and too lazy to take apart everything to get the camera out to return it and put in a different one.

Once we got into an extended dry period, the camera eventually dried out, and in daylight the pic looks great, but at night you can see some pretty visible horizontal lines flickering on the screen. Then it rained again the other night, and no surprise, water in the lens again. It's kind of disappointing because I was really pleased with the metal body on this when I got it, and I suspect had they sealed it better it would have been a great camera.

First things first. Look at the price before complaining. There are cameras out there costing hundreds of dollars, if you want that buy one. For the price, this camera can't be beat. Like any "inexpensive" camera, in low light they tend to wash out a bit. So what, same thing happens with the camera on your phone too. In daylight conditions, the colors are good, the clarity of the camera is very good and it does what it is supposed to do.

If you are looking for a rear view motion picture camera and think you are going to get IMAX quality, please be realistic and buy a much more expensive camera.

As to the waterproofing. Any time screws go into a metal anything the possibility of leaks exists. The solution is simple. Take the mount off. You will notice that actually, the camera was designed to be flush mounted because the wire coming out of the back goes through threaded tube. You can use that is you like but then the camera won't be adjustable. Take the bracket off. Now tape over the lens with some removable tape, almost any kind will do. Clean the body of the camera with some alcohol. Spray the camera body with some lacquer or better yet some aluminum wheel coating spray. Sure if you don't have some handy it will cost you about $6 from a local store but come on, you'll have other uses for it from time to time. Spray lightly and let dry. Do that 2-3 more times making sure the lens stays covered. A light spray means holding the camera body about 10" away from the spray and misting the body. After 2-3 times the entire camera body will be sealed from water and other elements.

This might sound like a lot of work but it takes mere minutes if you take your time. Now your camera is 100% waterproof and the original coating will not peel.
