The idea is awesome - that's easy to agree on. But I found three problems in implementation:
1) The depth of field on the camera is too short. Items come into clear view at a very short distance, which makes determining orientation and location very difficult.
2) The LED isn't diffused enough. Using the LED on BRIGHT to obtain more depth creates a bright hot spot on the image. This reduces image clarity.
3) The goose neck is very stiff and not "drivable". While I wouldn't expect a drivable head at this price point, the neck is so stiff that it needs one. :) Trying to snake this *through* a bathtub P-trap would be very difficult.
The product is a great idea (which is why I purchased it) but the engineering was poorly executed.
I did return this product.
The particular issue I have with the Milwaukee 2310-21 is that it does not provide the ability to discern details on small objects due to the low resolution of the camera. Combining this with an insufficient depth of field and a very narrow field, the Milwaukee inspection camera is not practical for working with fine instruments. It is extremely difficult to find what the user is looking for and once the scope is positioned correctly, the user can't obtain the needed information.
The adjustable brightness LED is a nice touch, but the light has a very narrow spot. Additionally, it has inadequate power to illuminate objects at a distance of more than a few feet (i.e. not fine instruments). In an attempt to improve visibility of the rather dim and often indecipherable images, I used a high power LED flashlight to illuminate the field of view. Oddly, it didn't merely saturate the CCD but rather scrambled the image. That is to say, the image appeared like a 1960s television that is not properly tuned with horizontal lines rolling down the screen.
In total, this inspection camera could use an upgraded CCD and screen that would significantly increase the cost.Read more ›
Unlike some of the negative reviews, I found the image to be clear and sharp, both from distance and very close up. Yes, using the light on HIGH would wash out the image, but only if the camera was too close to reflecting surfaces. Back it off an inch or so and the image is great. I suspect that the bad experiences listed here were at least partially a result of improper use. The stiffness of the snake makes it easy to keep the camera in place without any support, rather than limp enough to 'drive' into tight curves easily. It is a trade-off. I love it.
