Rear view camera?

I'm trying to figure out the best route to make a wired rear view camera for a project I'm working on, it'll essentially work exactly like a rear view camera just like a car, just button activated and small and simple. Any ideas?

make one with arduino. you can mount a mobile holder to fix the mobile and mount camera on rear. build a circuit with arduino and EZ-B. arduino will send vid from camera to mobile by bluetooth.
Buy a cheap video camera, disassemble it's screen and use some wires to plug it in away from the rest of the unit.
Looking for quality or just to build it from scratch for experience? Cause there are many back up camera kits out there you can use to add to your own vehicle. Most of them are not tied into the car's system more then feeding off the car's battery. So they use a switch to turn them on and off.

Helped a former employer install one on his truck at the trailer hitch so he could quickly and easily hook up a trailer on his own.
