Is there a replacement HD backup camera? Or is there another Nissan/Infiniti model camera that has better quality and a direct replacement?

I wish it were that simple. Even if there was a HD (1920 x 1080) camera available that fit, the DCU is old-school VGA (800 x 480). The OEM camera resolution spec is 1296 x 985 with a 2 lux minimum brightness. The camera's biggest downfall is crappy low-light sensitivity. 2 lux just doesn't cut it. Good backup cameras have minimum brightness sensitivities of 0.1 lux.

Even the backup camera and display in our Mazda 3 is HD and has a better lux spec than the Q50. It's another instance of Infiniti continuing to use 2014 technology in later model Q50's and not staying up with the times.

Thanks man! As always l, good info. Saw somewhere that the folks using the Tesla style screens can use a Sony HD camera, but it’s only for non 360 view.
