  • Best miniature camera I have brought well worth the money.the best thing about this product is the high quality picture that you receive and it's so simple to use.

  • It's actually better than I expected - and it's easier than trying to wiggle a phone into a confined area and take a picture (which is what I have often ended up doing - over and over until I could work out what was what). It seems quite well built (time will tell if it holds up) - and it comes in a nice carry/storage case. My one quibble - it doesn't work on a Mac, so I dug out an old XP laptop and when installing the drivers you get a warning that they aren't officially supported by Microsoft and shouldn't be installed (risk of destabilising your system). This certainly isn't ideal - but I suspect it costs money for official accreditation. As my XP laptop is old - I went ahead and it did work (although I had to reboot for a second installation to occur - when windows recognized a new device and then found the drivers I had installed prior to reboot). If you can get it on sale - definitely worth a purchase.

  • An excellent tool. Whether threading cables, spotting that dropped bolt in an engine bay or checking the seal on an inaccessible oil filter, the Flexible Snake is your friend. Easy to install software, a very good view on a laptop screen with adjustable lighting for improved clarity and a waterproof head for inclement viewing conditions, you'll wonder how you managed without it. An invaluable addition to your toolkit at a very affordable price. TJ

  • It did the job I required it for but only just. However, for the price it cost I couldn't complain plus the fact that I required it to check inside an aircraft wing on a bright sunny day, so had problems seeing the laptop screen; of course, no fault of the scope. The picture is a bit grainy but again, for the money, a good buy.
