I had to check- turns out I have those lines in low light as well, I really didn't notice them because I kind of expect low light video images to be noisy and have artefact... Now, if my Nikon D6 did this I'd be ripped! And, to some degree even a $5K camera will do this if you bump the ISO up to 3280000.

for reasons I can't fathom (because producing 2 parts seems like more of a hassle when one part will do just fine)... the 3/Y have cheap backup cameras. The S/X ones are much clearer... You'd certainly think they'd be able to just standardize the camera across the cars... but I don't build cars for a company...

As for service, you could tell tesla your car was on fire AND underwater at the same time, and that a dragon was sitting in the back seat, and they would tell you it's functioning as designed and to go away.
