I detailed the specs and connector for the Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirror power feed here:
Auto Dimming Rear view mirror retro fit ???
As mentioned in that thread, it's on a shared 5A fuse with the Rain Sensor Module so you need to be very careful about what the current rating of the camera is. Also, it's a switched live feed, so the camera would be powered off when the ignition is switched off.
If you want a constant live feed, you are better off going the route Abby606 did in the thread he linked to and using a piggyback fuse feed from one of the Central Electronic Module fuse positions. I think he did run into a problem though that when the camera was left on constantly it was draining the battery enough for the Start/Stop system to be disabled and I think he ended up changing it's power feed..
If you think your dash cam is going to use more than 5amps, you are using the incorrect camera..
