Our take on the Kenwood CMOS-200

by Ken Nail
Kenwood

Kenwood's CMOS-200 rear-view camera is an excellent safety accessory to add to your Kenwood or Kenwood Excelon video receiver. The camera supplies a wide 135-degree horizontal and 105-degree vertical view for an expansive view of what's behind you when you're backing up.

The camera renders a detailed 310,000 pixel resolution color image, and its CMOS optics eliminates distortion caused by nearby light sources like headlights. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

Compatibility: This camera is designed for use with Kenwood in-dash monitors, however, the standard composite video output (RCA plug) extension cable makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor.

Chassis: The camera is built into a compact waterproof aluminum case, making it perfect for mounting outside the vehicle.

CMOS Optics: The 1/4" color CMOS image sensor has approximately 310,000 pixels to deliver a high quality picture.

Wide Angle Lens: The 135° horizontal and 105° 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 provides an illumination range of approximately 0.9 to 100,000 lux. It offers less light distortion from nearby light sources.

Power Supply: The hideaway power supply box (0.825" x 0.855" x 2.795") features a 2-pin Molex plug on one end that connects to the camera extension harness which plugs into the camera's cable proprietary connector, supplying power and signal. The length of the camera cable is 26.5' when combined with the camera extension harness. The extension harness also includes a 57" RCA output lead that feeds the signal to your monitor. On the other end of the hideaway power supply box is a 4-pin Molex plug that connects the power harness which includes the 39" power wire, 39" ground wire and 16.5' reverse sensor wire which all will all need to be hardwired to your vehicle's electrical system.

Mounting: The rear-view camera comes supplied with a metal mounting bracket that attaches to the camera with two supplied machine screws and attaches to your vehicle with its self-adhesive backing or included mounting screw. Once the camera is installed in the mounting bracket the camera's angle can be adjusted to work in your application.

Good while it worked

Written By Mark P, New York on Monday, June 18, 2012
 
Camera worked well for a little over a year and then completely failed. For the price, it should have lasted longer.
Pros:
Great resolution and color
Cons:
Not durable

Panoramic!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This thing has a great wide angle panoramic view. It is an awesome addition to
our DNX-7100, and we should have gotten it a long time ago. My wife absolutely
loves this on her van. Takes a little time to get used to it and trust it. It
has a great picture day and night times.
