    Does anyone know who makes the backup camera for the Model S and Model X, or where I might find this information?

    Cheers.

    Who makes what, supplies what? Tesla Tap is a great source for that information.

    Take a look here: Undocumented | TeslaTap

    Then scroll down to "Rear Camera" and you will see it's a company called "OmniVision".

    Omnivision is just the camera chip manufacturer

    I've been trying to find that out for years, even took one apart to see what I could find. It's not OmniVision. AS araxara notes they only make the chip. I do know one thing -- it's made in Japan but by whom remains a mystery.
