Default black and white backup camera

I never noticed that the back up camera screen is purely black and white? or is there a setting somewhere to have the screen displayed in full color?

Uh.... That's a new one. Not supposed to be anything but color. Going to have to see your dealer for that.

Maybe this was in a very low light scenario?

Certainly the colors are not particularly vibrant, I think the camera is designed for working well in low light (night), which it does surprisingly well at, but colors are quite muted I think as a result.

I was a bit upset when I thought it was not a color screen. Ciege and Droid13 were right. it was a low light situation and the screen is not that vibrant. I saw a red car behind me while i was backing up :P
