Thanks for letting me know I didn't screw up stuff here.
AppRadioWorld: Honda's LaneWatch Feature Puts A Camera On Your Side-View Mirror [Video]
This video shows the "lane watch" camera feature. The little bitty camera under the passenger side mirror gives you at least 4X the normal mirror offering. NO BLIND SPOT! My only regret with these is they didn't put it on the drivers side as well. A split button on the end of that stalk could eliminate blind spots forever.
In the evening in the late dusk period the images are rich and vibrant as well as at night which has me suspecting its a mixed system like FLIR (thermal imaging added to camera view). The way they set the screen in the dash there is no glare anytime to the driver. The only time I have ever seen glare on it is when it is being filmed with lights!
It also displays the 3 foot bars to help with distance and convergence factors (helps your mind grasp it in a way mirrors never could). It's application to towing is gigantic. If you have pull out mirrors the camera would pull out with them. That's my "camera on a stalk" statement. But as they can capture an area that would necessitate a HUGE mirror, they are much more practical.
So let's sum it up: 1) You see more area including spots a mirror can't cover 2) They work better in low light/no light situations 3) the display is larger to your eye than the remote mirror and closer to your primary necessary field of view
To me that means the mirror's end is in sight, pun fully intended.
