There are some very efficient infra-red emitters out there, single chip units that can illuminate for night vision up to 100 yards away, you won't find these in backup cams (or security cams either) but their led cousins are getting pretty potent. I have seen back-up cams that can illuminate 20-30 feet behind the vehicle without any lighting from the vehicle.
