Rear camera on while regular driving?

Is it possible? That'd be cool, being able to see the cars behind you. It would also help us when changing lanes...

The speed of light > the speed of the backup camera.

Try this test, turn on your digital camera, and watch TV via the display.
You will notice a lag. Also, the camera could possibly stick.

For these reasons alone I think until technology is fast enough and tested so it had almost ZERO lag from the time the video camera takes the pic and it appears on the screen I would stick with the mirror. I am not saying it can't be done, but I would want something designed for that use.

As for backing up at 1-5 mph, I think the camera works fine. Just don't think I would trust it at 70 mph.
