The seller in somehow trying to include the Red-Green-Blue sub-pixels into the pixel count. You don't count sub-pixels in the pixel count. The combination of a RGB sub-pixel is what make a pixel. But even if you were to count sub-pixels, it would be 6408480*3 = 921,600 sub-pixels So it's only 0.9 sub-pixels, which is still lower than the advertised 2million pixels.
DEFINITELY NOT a 2mp sensor. regular 0.3mp VGA sensor that lets you stretch the image to a larger HD size. 16:9 mode crops the image even smaller.
Focus range is from 1" to 5".
Capsule is 9.9mm not 8.5mm
Image is clear enough to read small print, LEDs are bright and the auto exposure doesn't blow out the image.
For simple projects this will get the job done.
Below you will find my experiences with this camera. The video includes video of my Windows laptop and Linux desktop running the program so you can see what I saw, as well as how I used the hook accessory to change the angle of the camera.
→ In order for the camera to work it needs to be connected to a computer. A laptop works best so you can take it where you need to do your inspection.
→ The camera comes with Windows software, but you can use any software capable of rendering streaming video. In my video I show both the Windows software that came with the software running on Windows, as well as using VLC media player running on Linux. I ordered a USB to mini USB converter and will try streaming the the video to my tablet so it would be easy to carry around. I will post an update if I can get that to work.
→ The camera comes with a CD which contains two programs. There is no documentation how to install and run the software. The software on the CD needs to be copied to your computer. What you get on the CD is not an install program, it is the program itself. Do not start running the program directly from the CD, it will generate an error that it cannot run to the CD disk and then you will not be able to terminate the program. The only way to end the program running directly from the CD it is to shut down Windows. The software package is very basic, but if you don't have any other software capable of streaming video it does the job. "Smart Camera.exe" is the program that shows you what the camera is seeing in real time. It also allows you to take still pictures and record video.
→ The camera turns on as soon as you plug it into the USB port. The camera has a wide angle lens. The quality of the video is okay, the clarity of the image changes depending on how far away you are from the object. The camera focuses best between 1" to 4" away from the object. My video include images of a page with text taken from different distances and different angles, so you can see how the camera focuses. You can see that it gets a bit fuzzy at 5" and how the image looks when it is angled rather than straight on relative to the object.
→ The camera has a light on the end, which is very handy when you are looking at the dark hidden away places.
→ The big gotcha with the camera that it is hard to control where it points if you are not holding the camera in your hand by moving it via the cord. The cord is very flexible, so it is fairly easy to see down, but hard to move side to side and hard to see anything that is at an angle.
→ The camera comes with a couple of accessories: a hook, a magnet, a mirror, and a sleeve holder. The accessories do not stay on the camera well, the sleeve is very loose and easy to pull off. The camera comes with absolutely no documentation on how to use the accessories, but I found that a hook can be used to aim the camera at 90 degree angle rather than straight down (see video). However the hook is very easy to pull out and if you doing observation behind a plaster wall you are likely not to see it again, so I would tape the hook down with some tape. I encountered a similar issue with a magnet, which also could be used to aim the camera horizontally to something metal. But the force of the magnet pulls off the sleeve from the camera, so taping of the sleeve down is needed to hold the sleeve on the camera.
→ The camera get pretty hot as it works. After about 5-7 minutes it felt very hot to touch.
→ The camera is 2 inches long and 1/4 inch in diameter. The camera cord is 195 inches. It is flexible with a bit of stiffness so you can push it into openings. However its flexibility makes it a bit difficult to position especially as the distance to the object increases.
→ The camera lacks documentation. It does not describe either the software or the accessories. The CD contains another program called "amcap.exe". It appears to be a video capture utility, I found it be slow and non-intuitive to use. However "smart camera.exe" is easy to use and it is capable of displaying live video as well as capturing both still photos and video.
Bottom line? This is a handy tool for hard to see areas, reasonable video quality, good price, but a little hard to control the aim. I hope the video helps you get a good idea of what to expect.

Ali Julia review
Update: I received the USB to mini USB converter I mentioned in my original review. The good news is that the camera appears to be working, but I am having trouble finding an app that will display the video produced by the borescope on my tablet. I looked at VLC Pro Plus as well as several other apps but have not found one that works. If anyone knows of such app I would really appreciate it if you can share this info by leaving a comment. It would be so convenient to carry a tablet rather than a laptop to view the output!
I wanted to share the comment posted by T. Fritz who found the app that works! *Thank you!*
If you have an Android tablet I found that CameraFi (free) from the play store worked with this device. I used a Samsung Note (Android 4.4.2) with a samsung USB to miro-USB connector (AU10WEGXAR). This same set-up also worked on my Samsung Galaxy 3 cell phone (Android 4.3). This type of setup makes this device very portable.
I used the free app CameraFI on my Samsung tablet to make pictures and video of a leak from my car's windshield washer reservoir to determine what needs to be replaced before gaining full access. Using the video from this device, I determined that the leak was from a broken connection on the washer pump. So, I ordered a new pump and will remove panels and replace the pump as soon as I get a chance to spend the time to remove the panel underneath the front of the car.
Note concerning the attached video: It appears that water is coming from the u-shaped hose but we poured the water into the reservoir. The hose would normally be attached to the reservoir and/or pump. The piece of plastic in the end of the u-shaped hose is the broken nipple on the pump's output nipple. I thought of trying to reposition the endoscope to get a better view of the water source but decided this was good enough. With the evidence of the broken nipple, I determined that the issue isn't with the reservoir or any hoses; it's a broken pump.
