Watch Out! It’s Behind You… Best Selling Car Backup Cameras

Rear view camera technology is a fabulous thing – no more cricks in the neck, or worrying about what you can’t see, with a camera doing the work for you. You can reverse, confident in the knowledge that your kids, beloved pets or other obstacles aren’t in the way.

When buying one of these handy pieces of kit, what do you need to think about?

Field of vision is a good place to start. This is determined by a number of factors such as image sensor size and type and the lens focal length. Naturally the wider the lens, the more you’ll see behind, but have a play with various combinations to see what works for you.

The type of monitor is also important, with most being LCD (liquid crystal display). In terms of screen size, the larger the better – up to 10” is readily available.

Many backup cameras are fitted with infrared night vision, giving you a workable picture even in total darkness, and this is a useful feature to look for.

So which car back up cameras made the cut in February, 2019?


1) Coolwoo HD Car Backup Camera


This is a good, competitively priced, easy to install camera. It comes with clear and concise instructions, complete with simple diagrams, and after a couple of minutes it was ready to go!

What We Like

This is a straightforward reversing camera. It has a good range of tilt, the wires are plenty long enough, and the vision is clear, including in low light.

When you take its competitive price into consideration, there is nothing to dislike about the Coolwoo.

What Needs Improving

My only complaint so far is that the camera should have more weatherproofing to prevent road salts and moisture getting into the electrics.

8.0Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This Coolwoo camera is neat, cheap and does the job well. A great basic car back up camera that anyone can afford.

What Needs Improving

3) Emmako Backup Camera


Out of the 3 best selling reversing cameras tested, this, despite the higher price, is the best in practically every way.

The large screen has a clear, bright picture, with a fully adjustable mounting. Push button controls make the Emmako simple and straight forward to use, and the night vision works brilliantly. The camera is easy to install, even for a novice.

What Needs Improving

To be completely honest, I can’t fault this back up camera. I’ve tried, I really have, but other than reversing over the actual camera, I cannot find an issue.
