As for the camera, if you don't get the OEM parts from Ford, I would recommend getting the best aftermarket camera you can get. The MFT is such a nice hi-res screen, I don't think it would look very good with a cheap lo-res camera. It's just a guess, though.
lol it's not a high-res screen at *all*. It's 800x398 if I'm not mistaken. That's less than any smartphone that you can buy on the planet.

The camera probably records at like 640x480 (which is standard television resolution and not high-res by any means). I doubt you'd be able to find many cameras that record at a lower resolution.
