1. A camera system comprising:
an image capturing device configured to capture a rear image of a vehicle;
a sensor configured to measure a speed of the vehicle, a direction, a height, and an inclination angle of a lens of the image capturing device;
an image processor configured to convert the rear image by using information acquired from the sensor;
an attachment mount that is attachable to various locations connected to the vehicle; and
a wireless communication device configured to transmit the converted rear image to an audio video navigation (AVN) system of the vehicle,
wherein the image processor is configured to convert the rear image to correspond to a rearward direction,
wherein the image processor determines a final inclination angle of the image capturing device from the converted rear image to correspond to a rearward direction by comparing an inclination angle of the vehicle measured by using a gyro sensor of the AVN system and the inclination angle of the image capturing device measured by using a gyro sensor of the sensor, and converts the rear image to correspond to the determined final inclination angle of the image capturing device,
wherein the image processor determines a height of the image capturing device from the converted rear image to correspond to the determined final inclination angle of the image capturing device by using GPS information acquired by the sensor and GPS information of the vehicle, and corrects the rear image by converting the rear image to correspond to the determined height of the image capturing device.
