2014 OEM Backup Camera Replacement

Hello,
My 2014 Sorento no longer shows anything\just a black screen when the car is in reverse.
I am not sure if it is the Backup Camera at fault or the Head Unit, but the head unit works properly in every other way.
Was thinking about replacing the backup camera first. OEM is expensive but 3rd party camera's only come with RCA type of connectors.
Does anyone have any suggestions or knows of a converter which I can use to attach a 3rd party camera with RCA jacks to KIA's OEM connector?
I figured testing\replacing the camera would be the least trouble out of the two items to test\replace. See attached pics.

Do you have the model of camera and/or adapter? Would it work on 2012?

I used a camera off ebay that reminds me of a dice . it fit the best of the 3 different ones I ordered.
it was $8.99 and free shipping
it looks like a number 4 dice .the 4 dots light up when cam is on (reverse)
the camera works fine wife is happy now!!!!!
I used the old bracket to hold new camera in place

the old camera was all corroded(defect) the replacement from kia is coated with black plastic cost 130 to 200 bucks

Thanks Bradley!

The camera I ordered $17 (before I saw your camera type suggestion) unfortunately does not fit with the old bracket. But it did come with a license plate mounting bracket which I will use tomorrow as a final setup.
Test attached the new camera and it worked!!!!!!!
My daughter is happy, now she can drive\park the car by her school!

The Sorento is white, so I painted the camera body and cable white. This way once I mount it on top of the license plate it will not to be to visible (will post pics after I'm done).

Tomorrow will put everything back in, camera, panels.........

Once again thank you everyone and special thanks to Bradley Morris!

Ok here it is:
Is it better to have 3rd party camera mounted vs not having one, YES 1000%!
Am I 100% happy? NO, about 85%, not bad.

If I would have bought the camera with correct spacing on the mounting back screws to fit the ORIGINAL bracket to mount in the original spot, yea I would have been 100% happy. Let me explain..........
The new camera would mount securely only via top of license plate otherwise I would have to do some home made job to mount it inside its original spot.
The bracket was pointing straight out, I bent the bracket down as much as I could before bottom of camera touched the license plate.
I was hoping to see my back bumper in the video screen but not enough down angle, its just about 6" or 4" shy\ahead of the bumper .
The camera is exposed, I don't know how long she will last.......
If I have to do it over again I will most certainly buy the one Bradley suggested as it mounts to the original bracket. (By the way my dice looking camera's 12 LED's do not light up.)

Overall I am happy, not a bad job! My girls are happy! Much easier to park in NYC having a backup camera.
Got a chance to take the trunk paneling apart and now can do it with my eye closed but hope to never have to do it again, LOL.

PS: have one tiny screw left over after I re-installed all of the paneling. It never fails, I always have 1 screw left over, LOL!

Thank you everyone and Bradley Morris!

Oh forgot to take a pic of the screen view, will get it tomorrow.
