Rear View Safety RVS-770613 Camera
The included camera or cameras depending on what model you opt for are made from heavy duty zinc and are built to last. They have great build quality and are feature packed. They come with an adjustable sunshade to block out as much of the direct sunlight as possible to provide the best image. However when direct sunlight does hit the lens, the colors picked up are a little washed up and with extreme sunshine hitting the camera, images can appear almost black and white. The camera itself is rated as waterproof with grade IP68. It also comes equipped with 18 infra red lights allowing the camera to view up to a claimed 50′ at night. This 50′ figure is quite accurate and we can confirm that night time video quality with this camera is great. It also comes complete with a build in mic allowing you to hear what’s going on at the rear of your vehicle or clearly listen to reversing direction if required.
The camera is capable of filming at 1440×234 resolution with a wide angle of 130 degrees, not bad but not great for such an expensive camera. The footage this is fed through to the monitor is of good quality thanks to the decent signal to noise ratio of 48db.
Rear View Safety RVS-770613 Monitor
The supplied monitor is also good quality with a respectable 800×480 resolution. Not quite 720p but good quality and is capable of displaying the footage from the camera very well. It comes complete with a Auto Dimming and removable sunshade to viewing the monitor in sunlight, something missing on a lot of other cameras. The built in speak work in conjunction with the mic on the camera, broadcasting sound captured by the camera or even from the optional DVD player that can be plugged into the multiplexer. The monitor also displays driver assist parking lines helping you judge distance. The supplied cable is also 66′ long, making it a great buy for anyone looking for an RV backup camera.

Although a commercial grade mid to high end camera, it’s not without fault:
Washed out colour in direct sunlight
When there is direct sunlight in the camera lens (that the shade doesn’t block) the colors picked up are very washed up and in extreme cases can appear as black and white.
Due to the way the sun shield is attached to the sun shield, it only has 6 fixed positions you can aim the camera meaning on occasion, a compromise may have to be made when adjusting on your vehicle.
