Ingenious little camera at a bargain price!,
This review is from: (2 Million Pixels Cmos,9.9MM diameter,5M USB Ipx67 Waterproof Camera) DB POWER® 5m USB Waterproof Hd 6-led Borescope Endoscope Inspection Tube Visual Camera (5M (9.9mm)) (Electronics)
If you've ever been doing a spot of DIY or at-home repairs and thought 'I wish I could see around there' or 'I need to see up/down there in the gutter/pipe etc' then this camera is for you. Able to get pretty much anywhere with its flexible lead, impressive 5 metre length and its small 1 centimetre external diameter, the camera is useful for all sorts of things (though you are advised not to use it for, err, personal inspection!) It can be used in most environments too - the fact that it is waterproof making it very versatile and suitable for looking down the plug hole to locate leaks or blockages. It can also be used in dark spaces due to the powerful LED lights.
The quality of video is impressive for such a low-priced device, although focusing is best from a distance of a few centimetres and so it's not ideal for filming in very tight up-close conditions. You can take photos as well as video and the still images come out at reasonable resolution.
The operation of the camera is very simple, and it runs without any problems on Windows Vista.
The camera also comes with some accessories, the most useful of which is a little magnet that can be attached to the end - perfect if you've lost something metallic under a heavy piece of furniture!
At this price I see no reason not to give this product five stars. (It was provided free for an unbiased review.)
