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, tire inflators laying around in the garage or car bike racks 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 2020
