Questions to ask when buying a reversing camera

1. What kind of vehicle do I have?
Revering cameras these days come in all shape and sizes. The first thing you need to do is determine the make of your vehicle as it would help you determine the exact type of camera suitable for your car. For example, if you have a sedan or a much smaller vehicle, a camera that looks inconspicuous, such as a bumper camera or licence plate camera, will provide the perfect fit. If you have caravan or a larger vehicle, a bracket or dome camera is highly recommended as it gives you a bird's eye view of the back of your vehicle.
 
2. Should I get a CCD or CMOS camera?
CCD and CMOs basically refers to the two types of image sensors present in all types of camera. A CCD reverse camera is better at producing clearer images because it is more sensitive to light. It is a great option to consider, especially if you frequently drive at night. A CMOS camera, on the other hand, is usually cheaper and has more battery life. The downside, however, is that it is less sensitive to light and can be prone to noise and distortion.
 
3. Is my vehicle 12v or 24v?
It's also important to determine the output voltage of your vehicle before buying a reversing camera. This way, you can be sure that the camera won't short circuit when you connect it your car. If your car has as a 12v power source, you should buy a 12v reversing camera kit Australia. If it is 24v, then you should buy a 24v camera kit.
 
4. How long should my cables be?
To avoid buying the wrong set of cables, see to it that you don't overestimate the length of your vehicle. According to experts, when buying a reversing camera, particularly for a caravan or trailer, a 10-metre cable should be enough.
