Could you please clarify the type and reference of the Memory Card required? The link in the Maplin reply to one of the questions is to a Type 10 device, yet one of the customer Reviews reports a problem with a Type 10 card and states Type 4 was needed?

Asked by: Peter
Type's are card speeds, as type 4 is the minimum needed higher card types should work fine.

Would this work in a drainage pipe or plumbing? Do you stock any items with longer cord lengths for this purpose?

Asked by: KK1985
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item in your intended application, Unfortunately we do not have anything that has a longer length camera extension. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

If looking into a dark area up to what distance can it view objects 

Asked by: Rayk
The LED brightness is adjustable. The lower setting allows for close up viewing without any blinding glare. The LED on full brightness allows objects to be seen 20cms away in total darkness.
