    This little camera is quite pricey at £56 but it is claimed to be Sony CCD
    Comes complete with a 28mm hole saw and is primarily made for bumpers so comes with a couple of angled tubular collars to adjust the angle.

    Mine is going through the flat & vertically plumb rear wall so I discarded the spacers and to my delight realised it is now long enough to go right through the full 29mm thickness and still get the securing ring on.

    I kept the piece of wall that I cut out for the external 230 volt socket as I knew it would be handy at some time even if only for dimensions or just to show people how the wall are constructed (Rapido)
    The hole was straight forward making sure it goes through at 90 degrees!

    The camera has it's own O ring so no sealant needed.

    Part II will cover pictures in place on my van plus rear view shots as seen on the monitor

    This is for when reversing and is a supplement to the high level rear view camera I am fitting in a seperate topic.
    A bike rack makes a dual camera disfunctional when bikes are loaded.

    Thanks for that, very interesting. I too have a double cycle rack so am interested in solutions to the twin camera problem as the rack gets in the way.

    They can be used for side view cameras as well. I've used one for two years and am please with the way that it works.

    I find your posts extremely well laid out and very informative.

    Just wandering if there is any likelihood of you doing one for the cleaning of a flue/burner arrangement in a 3 way fridge in the future?

    Hi I fitted a pair of Sony ball cameras that are adjusted and locked using a Allen key, very easy to get the viewing angle you need, they are small and uninstrucsive and easy to fit,
