Great camera! Not sure why some people are complaining about the quality at night, mine looks great day and night! The car reverse lights are bright enough to help light up the path behind me. I bought this camera and had it installed with the Pioneer AVH-280BT head unit. The camera looks OEM too, which is a plus. The only downside is that the camera doesn't have parking guidelines. Unfortunately, neither does the AVH-280BT head unit. While I don't mind this too much, there is absolutely no way for for me to enable parking guidelines in the future. For that reason, it loses one star. From what I understand, none of the AVH head units have guidelines, which is kind of surprising to me. I think you have to get the more expensive units with navigation if you want the parking guidelines. Oh, also, you can't get rid of the "picture might be mirrored" warning, which is kind of annoying too. Ultimately though, it's still a great camera in the end. I don't regret my purchase!
I purchased this as a front camera view for my truck, interfacing as the video input 2 on my Pioneer 4200NEX, and it works great. I also purchased 2 other cameras, much cheaper ones, and 1 was dead on arrival, so I shipped it back. The other one is an Esky camera for the rear view. I compared the two images, and to be honest, the image quality was pretty much comparable in daylight, though the Pioneer was a tad bit darker. The Esky was a bit blown out though. The auto gain in both cameras worked equally well. In darker areas, the Pioneer turned grayscale while the Esky maintained a bit of color, but the Pioneer was more easily recognizable I thought. Where the Pioneer stood out most was in the quality of components from the camera itself to the wires. The wiring in the cheaper cameras is horrible, thin, brittle, and difficult to work with. I'm pretty sure the first camera I bought was DOA because of a broken wire inside the sheath. The pioneer wiring is solid, a good thick...
great product, clear image and easy to mount. Works flawlessly with any Pioneer head unit. However don't expect great results at night when image becomes grainy.
