Trying to do what I thought would be simple has turned out to not be so simple

Got a Ford Fiesta that had standard genuine reverse camera installed and a head unit with maps etc

In my quest to upgrade all the car audio I decided to go with an Android head unit

Using a standard aftermarket reverse camera on the Android head unit gives me an amazing picture, using the genuine/OEM camera though I get random artefacts and distortion which I find odd

I thought maybe it's a NTSC/PAL issue but turns out both cameras output NTSC so it must be something else

Anyone have any ideas? I'm quite skilled with a soldering iron and open to any options...

I've attached an image which shows some of the distortion along the top lines...

Just to add onto my previous post I have tried adding extra grounds etc to no avail, thinking about it though I do remember having an issue when installing the camera on the factory headunit, the camera has 3 pins for video, it has a positive and ground like a normal rca but also has an extra shield, I know when installing it on the factory headunit it didn't look right without the extra shield installed but doesn't matter what I do with that shield on the Android unit my results are still as you see in the picture...

have you compared field of view on the original radio? its possible the stock radio has lots of overscan.
