I think all little cameras like these are sensitive to IR - it's just the way they are. Get your cameraphone and while you have a live preview look at a normal remote control operating...

Very definitely yes. It's much brighter than you'd expect from the reversing lights, as the field of view is evenly lit. Just no colour AFAIR.

I would say so! Today I was reversing out of my drive and couldn't see out the back window because of dew. As soon as I was going forward not a problem as it ran off. But parking sensors are just that. Where as the cam I didn't need to worry as I could still see behind me

I was parked on Eastbourne Promenade yesterday. You park at roughly 45 to the main road, so if you go front-end in it means having to reverse out into the main road. This is nasty because you can't see what's coming, as the car to your left is 60-90cm further into the road than you are because of the angle of parking. You have no chance of seeing what's coming through your own back door window. By using the camera, I was able to see about 20-30 meters down the road, enough to see a gap in the traffic and edge out far enough so that I could see through the rear door window. For me this is a major advantage.
I also completely agree about the great night vision on the camera.
It has taken a little getting used to, but I think that it's worth every penny of the upgrade.
