Default Another back up camera question

I am in the market for a new BC, Has anybody tried using the cameras you buy for your computer for a backup camera? Why not?

Theoretically it would work, but the only ones I've ever seen were not designed for the elements, no night vision and they don't have the mirror image function.

Jon & Chris are correct that they don't have the mirror image function. Back up cameras have a reversed image like a mirror and your computer camera ( and other cheap cameras ) do not have this feature. They will work to see what is out there but will mess with your mind if you try to backup using them.
