Camera Help Please

I know you guys have sorted through all of the good, the bad and the ugly to find what works. I'm counting on your help. My wife will be having cervical fusion surgery on the 25th. She'll be in a neck collar for a month or so, but when she's able to drive her range of motion will be greatly reduced, making turning around to look behind when backing almost impossible.

Is there a good after market backup camera that would be relatively easy to install and to transfer to another vehicle--her current car is a lease. Thank you all.

You can check ebay, there are a few standard kits for sale that aren't that much, but I haven't shelled out for one yet.

let me qualify this

I know there are alot of cameras available at alot of places. While I'm not independantly wealthy by any means, I don't mind paying extra for good lasting quality. I guess I'm looking more for brand recommendations. Which ones do you guys own? Are they satisfactory in normal useage? Which ones have you bought that aren't worth alick? Thanks again.

I would also suggest a clip-on panoramic wide-angle rear view mirror similar to this :

CIPA Panoramic Rear View Interior Mirrors, Panoramic Rear View Mirror


* Get maximum rear visibility for safer driving with a CIPA Panoramic Rear View Mirror
* The convex glass in your CIPA Panoramic Rear View Mirror delivers greater back and side roadway reflection coverage
* Diminishes your blind spots for surer lane changes, passing and turns
* Your CIPA Panoramic Rear View Mirror comes complete with a set of spring clips for a simple installation on top of your stock rear view mirror
* Available in both 12" and 18" lengths
* CIPA backs your Panoramic Rear View Mirror with a 1-year warranty
You can get them in AutoZone/Pep Boys/Kragen type stores if you look around. Make sure to look for bigger one, because that will give you the widest view.
