Impressive camera for the price – Waterproof Vehicle Rear Sight Video Camera with 7-LED Night Vision (12V DC/PAL) Reviews

Comes with mounting bolts and cables, looks very nice fitted to the car and matches the black plastic of my car's rear-lights assembly.
Very clear black and white night vision, and good colour daytime vision. Has coloured guide lines on the video image which look like something out of a movie, and are useful for lining up the car when parking.
I had difficulty using this with the included 8m cable and LCD monitor sku.39044. The screen would keep flickering for up to a minute trying to work out if it was NTSC or PAL before producing a good colour image. I tried a better cable and it seemed to fix the problem, also unplugging one end of the RCA cable slightly gave me a black and white image without any problems.
My car has a plastic bolted-on middle section for the rear-lights assembly, with the license plate and license plate lights. I removed the plastic assembly and mounted the camera to that, then routed the cable between that and the bodywork, and through an existing cable grommet in the bodywork,
so I didn't need to drill any metal bodywork.
Very nice camera, but be prepared to get a better RCA video cable for it, and/or a good enough screen inside the car (maybe a PAL-only screen wouldn't get confused). If you have an 80s car then this camera will complement the style of the car nicely.
