PAL or NTSC Reversing Camera

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, looking to fit a reversing camera to my 2015 Ford Focus SYNC 2 in the UK. Does anyone know if I need a PAL camera or would a NTSC work aswell, most of the cameras on amazon are NTSC but they say that a PAL is availible if needed. Could I get any or is is crusial for the right one and which would be better. The camera I am looking at is https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07HMJBFSS/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza

Thanks Dave.😉

That will work, as long as it's NTSC you will be fine even the £6.99 eBay ones would work - I have one.

I am also UK with a 2017 STline Focus - you need NTSC. This camera you have linked is NTSC so will work fine, although it does say you may need a relay if you encounter image flicker.

I like that spec :

"5. Video Colour: Colourful"

NTSC is an abbrieviation : "Never the same Colour"

Like NICAM - "Never intended to carry any music"

and Polaris - P***** off, looking after rockets in Submarines.......

PAL is "Phase Alternate Line" if my memory serves me correctly.
