My 2013 FFH has a backup center line. I have never used it but it's there. You have to press the + sign in the upper left hand corner of the MFT to get to the center line.

Zoom Zoom, must be some Mazda influence on the Fusion.  I wonder why it only shows when zoomed.   Friday night was the first time I ever used the backup camera to back up with. My mirrors were useless that night. I prefer the mirrors though, I can back up much faster with them than the camera.

We noticed today that the rear backup camera on my FFH S (not MFT) is in "zoom" mode. Part of the rear bumper shows in the display and the magnifying glass icon is showing up in the display.

 

The owners manual says that under camera settings the zoom can be configured on/off but my camera settings only has one option and that is the delay setting.  Any ideas on why my camera has gone into zoom mode or how to return it to its normal operation?

I don't think it is in settings, it is just on the screen when you put it in reverse.  Just touch the magnifying glass icon.

Yes, after doing some more investigation I think you are right. Since I don't have MFT touching the button just below the magnifying glass icon does put it into zoom mode. We have owned the car for 21 months and only now figured that out.  :doh:

 

But, the bottom 20% of the rear view camera image is showing part of the white trunk lid (i.e. a white bar across the entire width of the rear view camera image).  Neither my wife or I remember seeing that before and we are wondering if the camera has become mis-aligned. Are other FFHs showing part of the trunk lid across the bottom of the camera image?

This is my camera image in the center console display screen looks like. My copilot said yesterday that she had never noticed the white bar across the bottom of the screen before (it is the area of the trunk lid just below the camera). I have to confess that if it was previously there I never really noticed it or paid attention to it.  Does this look normal?

Edit: Sorry the picture is upside down (cannot figure out why the attachment tool insists on putting it upside down). But you can see that the white part (my trunk lid) is eating up 20% of the picture image.

The bumper has always been in the backup camera picture.  How else would you be able to back up close to something without hitting it?

Yes it is normal. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to be absolutely sure that your bumper isn't hitting any obstacle that shows in the camera :)

 

I rented a 2015 Fusion SE base which had a camera linked to the tiny screen, like yours, and it was exactly like that.

Thanks for all of the responses. Good to know that it is normal and I am flummoxed that I never noticed it until my wife mentioned it.

 

The only comment I would add is that it is not the bumper but rather part of the trunk lid below the camera. If I pop the trunk with the car in reverse the camera gives me a view of the sky behind me but the white bar remains identical.

Some months ago I posted my backup camera picture as others thought the camera view changed. The view has always been this way, as you can see it's the same as the above picture.

Thanks, Gkinla.  Yes, it looks nearly identical to mine.

And that's same as I have on my '15.  When I press the + I get a real closeup of the rear faschia and about 3 feet behind me.

When you press the + the view is almost straight down. The view is about 12 inches away from the pumper. The black dashed line is to help align a trailer hitch when backing up....for other cars equipped with a bumper hitch. Not necessarily a FFH.

Ahhh!  That makes sense completely.  Thanks!
