Back up camera for a 2011

My buddy has a fully loaded 2012 2SS and he said his came standard with the reverse back up camera. I love this idea so I did some searching and found that a few people on have them installed. The thread (How to install Ofer's backup camera retrofit - Camaro5 Chevy Camaro Forum / Camaro ZL1, SS and V6 Forums - is about 2 years old but the price for the entire kit was anywhere from $300-$350 (post #18 and #19). I contacted the seller and he said it will cost $475 shipped. I do not want to pay that much for this simple camera. Has anyone done this for cheaper and how did it turn out?

Here is a video of it.

You can do it cheaper (Best Buy) but they are not nearly as nice. My wife had one (not Best Buy, one more in line with the higher price you quoted) put in her Charger and it is as nice as an OEM
