Sometimes you just need to make sure nothing is moving in there. Capisce?

You mean the campers that were “sleeping” back there?

I believe that it’s showing the top of the vault in the closed position.
CT coming with it’s own drone would be mighty cool. That is the only way a CT camera can get that view of top of vault.

I would say if it was a mirror you would see the vault cover, but if it was a screen displaying a camera view, you would see outside of the truck. It would be useless to display inside the vault.

Just my thoughts.....
If you are looking at the mirror at this angle you would see outside the opposite window, that’s the way light works.

if they have ANY camera capable of being seen in the rear view mirror.. why not have ALL camera's be visible there.. jsut need a software setting to flip which feed to use.

So... we have seen EVERY indication we are getting a camera on the tailgate.. has anyone seen anything about a rear facing camera with a higher mount.. or a plug in for a camera you can put o top of a load... I am picturing when hauling a box trailer.. that rear view camera they have shown us isn't going to show much... and STRONGLY suspect Tesla has already figured something out for this.

Display screen mirrors are not exactly new. Magna launched its ClearView mirror in 2017. The latest version (which is presumably the CT version +/-) combines three cameras into one screen: the two side view and the rear view to create a single panoramic camera view

https://www.magna.com/company/newsr...iew-camera-monitoring-system-to-debut-in-2022

When it is off, it has mirrored surface and that is what we are seeing here.

All GM large vehicles for starters offer this as an option, both SUV’s and Trucks and have for a couple years. This wouldn’t be mind blowing new technology by any means, and it would likely be necessary given the design of the vault.

Just my thought but the tailgate camera seems like it would be too low for a rear view. Like I mentioned before, I always expected them to put a camera up at the apex of where the two windows meet, but I do not know where the camera locations are but there are at least 9 (2 left/right fenders, 2 left/right B pillars, 2 on windshield, 1 front bumper, 1 inside facing cab, 1 tailgate). HW4 has places for 12, right? Or was it 10?

The suggestion is that the review is displaying a digital macro lens view of just 6 slats of the tonneau cover (which has like 50 slats total), brightly lit?

Is this CT having an OCD out-of-body experience?

hmm, you guys...if I am driving CT, I won't look at the rearview mirror at all...not necessary...either too slow or too weak compared to CT

I am not convinced of what the image shows at all. I would like to see the ‘mirror’ straight on, but I suspect we won’t have to wait much longer to find out the truth one way or another. It is true that looking at a mirror from the side should present a view of items on the other side of the normal. It is true that there are many more slats in the tonneau cover. So nothing about the image makes sense.

That's just the tonneau cover for the the rearview mirror
Franz went tambour crazy :ROFLMAO:

that’s not necessarily true, depending on what you mean by “mirror”

Depends on the where the glass prism is placed relative to the reflective film, whether the film is only semi-transparent, and the edge-lighting conditions.

Put a semi-transparent mirror surface in front of edge lighting which is itself near a second reflective surface, then illuminate that edge, and you will not be presented with “a view of items on the other side of the normal”

you will be presented instead with:

Because that CT’s glass prism has large exposed edges that from this angle are being back lit, and because the mirror-to-digital display setup probably utilizes only a semi-transparent reflective film at the ‘front’ of the glass, I’m guessing that from this angle and in these just-so back lit conditions we’re just seeing some bizarre and accidental infinity mirror effect of one of the surrounding glass prism facet edges

if forced to guess, an infinity “reflection” of the angled glass facet of the upper edge of the prism, appearing to repeat itself ‘down’ the height of the mirror in increasingly elongated repetition

That, or it’s dark magic

See also: old school mechanical dimmer paddles on rear view mirrors, which utilize a different but related optical effect to angle the “mirrored” surface up towards the headliner and leave you viewing only the reflection in the glass prism itself

anyhow, while I obviously can’t exactly explain the artifact being seen in the CT photo, I’m more confident in it being a bizarre infinity mirror artifact from the edge lighting than it being a digital macro image of ~6 tambour slats
