Reverse immage camera

I just picked up a camera to go with my new Garmin 4208.

I had never thought of the reverse immage thing.

Like a lightbulb going on in my head.

Great idea.

Does anyone else have one?
If so what do you think?

Reverse image? Why? Do you mean as in a photo negative?

RE: Reverse immage camera

Most RV's with rear-view cameras are reversed. I think it saves some brainwaves figuring ot traffic at 60 MPH!

RE: Reverse immage camera

Yeah.* Cameras reverse the immage or R is L, *L is R

sort of like looking into a mirror into a mirror.

The reverse immaging camera sorts this out allowing you to see the correct orientation.

When you look at the screen it's a if you are looking out the back of the boat.

I know a guy with one (this exact camera)*and it is really easy.

I just ordered one today from a place in IL.* They were a few bucks more expensive but they were extremely helpful on the phone and that is worth something.

CVC-627MR is the camera.* This place only carries the CVC-627 in stock*which is the normal but they got me the reverse image one for me.* The price was $165.* But it is plug and play right into the Garmin or Raymarine.

Ask for George and he will know exactly what you are talking about.

RE: Reverse immage camera

Reverse image really only would help if you are mounting the camera with the intention of using it to back the boat up... as far as for a engine rm. cam it is there so you can see ... water spray,* smoke,* fire,* your laundry that you hang in the engine room to dry*
( trust me the hanging towels WILL find their way to the moving engine belts ) and small children left there for a " time out".

Mine came in very handy on a number of occasions...

You may choose from the above list..

RE: Reverse immage camera

I have been thinking about these also as I have a Garmin Multi function display that one of these could plug into.* Since I have not only a hardtop on the sundeck, but also a dinghy on the sundeck roof, I can't see the aft corners of the boat from the helm and my slip is very tight to back into.* I have 18' between the pilings and my boat has a 15'6" beam.* The thing is with 120 degree cameras I think I might need two, and that seems like a pain in the seat.
My current system is that the Admiral postiions herself on the sterndeck with an Eartec two-way radio and let's me know if I am off course to Pt or Stb and how much.**However, since*she can't seem to keep port and starboard on the correct side of the boat, backing into my slip brings everybody out to watch.* My dockmates have*asked me to call in about 10 minutes before I arrive to give them time to get the popcorn and sodas ready.* I got*the Admiral*one those shirts with a red sleeve on the left and a green on the right, but when she turns around it seems to be a problem as the shirt turns with her.* Of course I could just dock bow in, but where's the fun in that?

Wait just a minute.* Port or starboard doesn't change whatever*the direction a person is facing.

Yes of course but if one person is facing backwards and says starboard, do they really MEAN starboard or are they confused and really meant port?* If the person hearing starboard doesn't trust the person saying it to know port from starboard (see the post that started this, now retracted ), then things can get ugly.*

"Did*s/he*MEAN starboard? But s/he facing backwards so maybe s/he means port...?!?* SHOOT, which way do I need to go????"* CRASH...*

As I believe*Carey had in his siggy*-- the problem with communication is the illusion it has taken place!

thus our friend's solution of referring to nearby boats instead of port and starboard.* Even if Little Bear is not actually THERE, both husband and wife know "turn towards Little Bear" means port.* or get a back up camera.* My husband would be too busy looking at the screen to steer so it wouldn't help us.* * We are so great at communicating that we don't need a camera anyhow.* That or those Mr Clean Magic Erasers work REALLY well on dock scuff marks.
