Caravan Rear-View Camera "Perfect Rear View Just Like Looking in a Normal Mirror".
"The new camera (12mm lens) gives a perfect rear view and is just like looking in a normal mirror. Unlike the 90 degree or even the 60 degree camera I can now see traffic approaching from a long distance behind the caravan without losing a reasonable angle of view when traffic is immediately behind the caravan.
I’ve attached an iPhone photo I took while I was stopped by roadworks. Although the quality isn’t great it gives you an idea of the natural perspective the new camera gives.
As far as I know, the first true rear-vision camera fitted to a caravan in Australia. All the others I would classify as primarily reversing cameras. Of course the 12mm lens (30 degree) camera is not suitable for reversing into tight spots but excels in its application on the open road. When I get some time I am going to mount my old 92 degree camera in a suitable spot under the back of the van with an automatic switchover when in reverse so I can have the best of both worlds".
I am very happy to endorse the superb support and follow up I have received from NAS Security".

P.S. If you are planning to offer the 12mm camera for sale it is important to emphasise that the camera is mounted onto a firm base to avoid camera shake on rough roads, which can be an issue with long focal length cameras.

|The 30° angled camera has a long narrow angle and provides a view in the monitor like looking into a Rear-Vision Mirror. This camera will provide the most accurate view of the distance a vehicle is travelling behind you. However it is not the best camera to reverse into tight places in caravan parks as it is not a wide angled lens camera. Some customers install two cameras on the back of their caravans, the 30° for travelling and the 120° for reversing.|
If your intention is to install one of NAS's Cameras on another brand of reversing camera monitor or Navigation/Stereo System then you may require a RCA cable and cable.
The RCA cables can be found on this page. http://www.nassecurity.com.au/rca-cables.html. The Cables can be found on this page http://www.nassecurity.com.au/reversing-camera-cable.html.
The length of cable attached to the camera is approx. 350mm.
