Sorry I can't help with the wiring Robbie but interested to know what cameras you're fitting please?
I'm looking at the Nextbase Ride camera as a permanent fixture but this is only front facing.

Thanks

Use either your front or rear option connectors, Black wire with a yellow trace is ignition feed and green goes to earth.

I agree with Bruggen, the tail light is a led one so low power is needed. Use option connectors seems logical!

That does look neat. What's the quality of the video like?

I fitted the Nextbase Ride a few months ago, and despite it being only forward facing, it is HD quality, has excellent night-time recording and is Wi-Fi capable so I can easily download to my phone too.

I would like rear-facing too, and am (still) awaiting delivery of a slim, helmet-mounted camera, which is crash-sensitive and makes an alerting text in case of a crash with your GPS position.

Technology eh? Hard to keep up with it!
