What To Look For in an Inspection Camera
The best inspection cameras have built-in, high resolution 4.3″ TFT screens of at least 2 megapixels (1,920 x 1,080p) and they come with a fixed or zoom lens.
Most inspection cameras come with a 5-metre probe that has a lens diameter of 7 to 8mm, although more specialist smaller probes can come with shorter cables of 2-3 metres and a lens diameter of just 4mm.
To ensure the clearest vision the probe circumference should be fitted with 6 to 8 LED lights.
Endoscope inspection tools that use a smartphone for camera function and data storage, using WiFi connectivity, are also very common. Always check your smartphone’s operating system is compatible with the endoscope. Endoscopes use similar probes to dedicated inspection cameras.
Inspection cameras and endoscopes are handy little tools that can get to places and see things that people could only dream of. I’ve researched the best snake cameras available right now, so you don’t have to. Read on to discover what I’ve found out…
