Our take on the Clarion CC510

by Buck Pomerantz
Clarion

Display overlay helps when backing up

Clarion's CC510 rear view camera shows you clearly what's behind you as you're backing up, and adds a unique touch — colored guide lines on the picture help you judge how much space you've got. When you see an object at the green lines at the top of the picture, you've got plenty of room. You'll exercise caution as the object passes through the yellow and orange lines, and then stop when it gets to the red lines.

Compact, waterproof, hardware included

This tiny camera comes with all the wiring and hardware you'll need to install it. It'll fit in almost any location you pick, even many license plate frames. The 31.5-foot cable includes a composite video connector that'll hook up to almost any car stereo with a screen. 

Highlights:

  • rear-view camera with standard composite (RCA) video cable
  • green, yellow, orange, and red distance guide lines overlay image
  • 1/4" color CMOS image sensor with 342,000 pixel resolution
  • color video output
  • 150-degree horizontal and 100-degree vertical viewing angles
  • light-sensitive down to 0.5 lux
  • automatic iris and white balance
  • weather-proof camera housing
  • tilt and swivel mounting bracket
  • mounting hardware and 31.5-foot power/video cable included
  • camera dimensions: 15/16"W x 15/16"H x 7/8"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Compatibility: The Clarion universal rear-view camera (CC510) can be used as a back-up camera with Clarion in-dash monitors. However, the standard composite video output (RCA plug) extension cable makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor.

Waterproof Chassis: The camera is built into a compact waterproof (IP67), UV-protected (ASTM D4329) aluminum case, making it perfect for mounting outside the vehicle.

CMOS Optics: The Clarion universal rear-view camera employs a 1/4" color CMOS image sensor (342,016 pixels) with auto iris and automatic white balance to deliver a high quality picture.

Super Wide Viewing Angle: The 150° horizontal and 90° vertical viewing angles provide an excellent near field view of anything behind you. The camera gives you a mirror image for rear view confirmation.

Illumination Range: The rear-view camera features a minimum subject illumination of 0.5 lux (at 50IRE). The 0.5 lux rating ensures you'll have visibility at night in low light.

Distance Guide Lines: This rear-view camera provides visual distance guide lines (Red, Orange, Yellow, and Green).

Mounting Bracket: The rear-view camera comes supplied with an integrated self-adhesive bracket which can tilt the camera up and down.

3 Connectors: The CC510 rear-view camera includes an attached 31.5' cable terminated by a composite video RCA connector, power lead, and ground lead. The composite video RCA connector plugs into your in-dash monitor's rear-panel RCA camera input. The power/ground leads connect to your vehicle's +12-volt reverse lamp wire and gets grounded to a metal surface of your vehicle.

Great camera

Written By Phil, Silicon Valley, CA on Thursday, April 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just as described. Fits nicely in replacement of my factory back up camera (which isn't compatible with my aftermarket Kenwood unit). I like the colored guidelines a lot.

Very clear video from this camera

Written By rotordawg, Central, NH on Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Camera does have a green, yellow, orange and red guide lines super imposed but is more useful than not. It would be nice to turn it off, but I am warming up to it. The video is super clear and the very long cable on this camera should be mandatory! I have a 4-door Silverado, mounted camera on a license plate frame. I went up underneath and wire tied the cable onto the existing chevy harness and came up thru the floor in a factory plug by my feet, went up under dash nice and neat and maybe had 5-6 feet left. No splices to worry about! Camera is a little grainy at night but picks up a lot of light so you can see. Daytime is second to none. If you are considering this camera and not sure which one to buy, this one will be it!
Pros:
Long cable, you need it for a truck. Very clear camera with color. Easy to mount and stays put.
Cons:
Mine sticks out a bit from the plate bracket it is mounted on almost begging someone to mess with it.

I LIKE THE MARKERS REALLY HELPS

Written By BJK, OKC OK on Monday, January 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
VERH NICE, WITH THE RED, YELLOW MARKERS. VERY ACCURATE DURING DAY. A LITTLE GRAINY AT NIGHT. VERY SMALL SO NO ONE SEES IT. THE WHOLE STEREO INSTALL WAS WORTH JUST HAVING THE BACK UP camera. IE: I HAD A STEREO UNIT INSTALLED WITH THE BACK UP CAMERA AS A AUX.
Pros:
NONE VERY Accurate with the markers, a must when driving an 06 beast avalanche.
Cons:
a little grainy at night.

Very nice rear view camera, nice color and definition. Also it sees well at night. The wide angle covers a good area so you can see really every thing behind your car. The compact size is very convenient and looks like factory. I bought it for both of our cars

Great Camera

Written By Roger, Chester county PA on Thursday, November 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
We put this in my wife's 2009 Honda CR-V when we replaced the head unit with a Pioneer AVH-X2500BT. She likes it better than the original. Lines tell her how close she is to objects in the rear and also gives her a wide angle view. Only down side is the goofy mounting bracket. Our installer fashioned a replacement that is functional. I have not seen better without distance sensors.
Pros:
clear view with lines to tell distance
Cons:
goofy mounting bracket

First Backup Camera

Written By DiscoKing, Greensboro on Sunday, November 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nothing extraordinary about this camera. I did like the distance markers that came with it Just wanted an Additional safety feature on my car. Fairly easy to install if you have a DVD receiver that supports Rear view camera. The camera comes with 3 wires yellow RCA Cable, red , and a ground wire.

IN the day time You can see things preety good. At night the whole camera looks grainy. You can still see good it just looks like a old fashion TV you need to tune.
Pros:
Distance line Markers, easily can be concelled 30ft of cable.
Cons:
in the dark the video looks grainy..

EZ Install, Great Picture

Written By John D, Lindenhurst, NY on Saturday, November 02, 2013
 
Installed this camera in my '05 Grand Cherokee along with my Clarion NX 602 head unit. Installation couldn't have been easier. It gives me a clear view behind the truck and the guidance markers are a big help as well. Color is right on.
Pros:
Wide angle view , easy installation and many mounting options.
Cons:
None yet.

I Really Like This Camera!

Written By J S, Santa Rosa CA on Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The one star review may have had a bad installation, or a bad screen; my Clarion camera is crystal clear. It works just fine, I got it to work with an RV. I am happy with it!
Pros:
The distance lines are helpful with the RV
Cons:
The user's manual is strictly for installation, and there is no distances given for the distance lines.

Terrible video

Written By Chris, Lexington, KY on Friday, May 03, 2013
 
When I first saw the video, I was wondering if there was any color, it was hard to tell. And not only that, the actual video quality was poor. I decided to take a drive to see if things would change, but it only got worse. For some reason, when the sun was behind a cloud, it almost looked B&W. Then the sun comes out, and there's a bit of color... and I mean "a bit" of color (and yes, my color vision is normal). The video also seemed to "waver" in and out (couldn't think of a better word). Anyway, returning as defective, but I don't want to take a chance that this is the actual behavior of the camera, so I'm getting a refund. Didn't even give it a chance at night because daytime video was so bad. Great customer service from Crutchfield, as usual.
Pros:
Very little fisheye effect with good field coverage. Easy install.
Cons:
VIDEO quality.
