First off my measurements show the naked barrel is indeed 5.5 mm in diameter, smaller than the other models. An empty screw on ring is normally attached and that increases the diameter to about 6.3 mm. It's removable (no lens or cover in it) for other attachments (included) to be screwed on. I did not test/use these.
I tested for Depth of Field, what Depstech calls "Cam Tele" and can confirm it's large. Objects 1"-2" in front of the barrel head were in focus and objects out to at least 15" were as well. At longer distances you're more resolution limited than DoF limited.
On that note I tried to determine the native resolution of the WF050. The printed manual (included) lists resolutions of 1280x720, 640x480 and 320x240 as available for this model. Higher resolutions are given for other models and the app supports 1920x1080, 1600x1200, 1280x720 and 640x480. All those resolutions "work" for the WF050 but some result in a skewed aspect ratio; that is objects may be stretched either vertically or horizontally when compared to their real life height/width ratio. I found that the 1280x720 resolution produced the most realistic picture and so I think the native resolution of the sensor used in this model is 1280x720. Other data from analysis of movies also supports this conclusion. Other models have, I believe, a higher resolution sensor.
Of course useful resolution depends on more than the sensor, the lens field of view is important in getting the real resolution (pixels/deg). Depstech lists 66 deg horizontal FoV and I (coarsely) measured 65 x 43 deg (H x V) thus confirming it. Depstech lists 80 degs H FoV for the bigger barreled models and with a higher res sensor (?2952x1944?) should still get you more pixels/deg, which Is why I think those (WF030 ...) might be a better bet for most people unless they have a burning need for the smaller barrel diameter.
I shot a few movies in varying light and will say the vids are grainy in low light and OK in good light. I measured 10 - 15 FPS in those cases and so again the other models might be better in this regard (Depstech lists 30 FPS, presumably under good lighting). My tool reported the resolution as 1280x720 despite the app being set for 1920x1080.
One feature that I thought might be nice (why I got the WF050) was the zoom button on the hand controller. You can go from un-zoomed (0x) to 1x to 2x to 3x on successive presses of the zoom button. I measured the horizontal increase in size of a picture object for each zoom setting and got 2.2x, 3.6x and 7.6X increases from the 0x baseline. Call them 2x, 4x and 8x zooms. The post zoom pic quality is OK in good light, so-so in dim light. You can do better using a picture editing program and I'll post a pic (if I can) of the comparison (note that most of the sharpening artifacts in my comparo would not be there if using raw data to zoom). So the function works, and is easy to use, but you can do better. And yes it's a digital "zoom", not a real optical zoom. What can you realistically expect at these sizes and prices.
I have not measured battery life, suffice it to say it lasted the 30 mins I used mine for. How much longer does anyone really need ?
I will say the app installed without a hitch on my Android (7.1) tablet and works/connects just fine. Details are in the manual.
Overall I'm happy with the WF050, it does what I needed for and for a decent (low actually) price. You not paying hundreds of $$s for a lab grade instrument after all. I listed it as 4 stars but really think it's more like 3.5 stars ... for the lower resolution vs the other models.
PS - Here's a few things for Depstech to consider:
- Make a comparison chart of all your endoscopes, listing connection type (USB, Wifi, etc), features (cable length, barrel diameter, sensor resolution, FoV, "Cam tele" or not) and anything else you can think of. It's very difficult to figure out what model has what and that has to be hurting sales. Also fix all the conflicting numbers given in your documentation and graphics.
- You might want to move the zoom function to the app, where more processing power and a better algorithm could be applied. Right now it's my GUESS that a crop and simple enlarge is being done in the handset and sent to the app.
- Consider adding some form of motion stabilization to the app. The resulting pic would loose some pixels around the edges but become clearer and more usable when moving the sensor. Motion blur is THE limiting item in resolution when in motion. I think this would be a killer feature and have a positive impact on customer satisfaction and sales.
- Consider offering a model with the proper UV LEDs for use in the automotive and HVAC field. The proper wavelength LEDs will excite the dye used in tracer products, causing it to glow brightly and thus aid in detecting (AC refigerant) leaks ... a prime use of these type of instruments.
- Lastly ... "Cam tele", ugh. How about "XDOP", for extreme depth of field. It's more accurate and easier to understand. :)
My buying experience was excellent. Quick delivery. Thoughtful followup after the purchase.
The endoscope came nicely packaged with all expected items in the box.
The instructions are easy to follow. I had the app downloaded and was ready to go in a minute or so.
The camera arrived with minimal charge so I wasn't able to use it immediately. I plugged it into a micro USB cable and returned sometime later to find it fully charged. I was able to quickly turn it on and connect to it's provided WiFi hotspot. The Depstech Mobile App is minimal but functional enough. I recorded video and photos with no problem. The results are saved in the Photos app on iOS so they are easy to work with using your standard media management workflow. I like the new control box. The quality of the box and buttons is nicer than units I've used in the past. The buttons worked well and were easy to figure out and remember for one-handed use without paying attention / looking at the buttons. The LED light dimmer is handy. Adjusting the quantity of light makes a big difference in image quality. The zoom was nice and worked fine. You have 3 zoom levels. I'm not certain I would need it regularly but it did help on the first "project' I used it for. I had a eyelash that irritating my eye. I wear glasses, making it challenging to examine that simply using a mirror. The endoscope allowed me to put the camera close to the eye, under the glasses and take video and photos of the subject area. Sure enough, I found a lash growing in a direction that allowed it to rub on the surface of the eye. The zoom was handy for this inspection. I did seek a 2nd pair of hands for removing the lash. It would have been a bit much to attempt manning tweezers, positioning the camera and watching the screen in order to remove the lash. I suggest spending a bit of time with the system before starting on a job. It's helpful to determine the orientation of the camera (rotating it to determine the top will help you orient and position the camera properly). Knowing the buttons on the control box well enough to operate without looking is helpful.
I did not attempt to adjust the resolution of the video from the app but the image quality was clear, colors seemed accurate and I didn't feel like I needed additional resolution. Focus range seemed better than past units.
I did not test battery life or measure charge time. But I can't imagine either would be an issue for most projects.
I've had many projects that were significantly easier due to the endoscope. I've used it to inspect several parts and places in a front loading washing machine to diagnose a draining problem. I've used it for numerous automotive projects, inspecting or finding things in hard places. I've looked for rodent access. I've looked for foxtails in the dog's ears. Handy tool. I'm surprised how often I go "Oh yeah! The endoscope will make that easy!"
I did receive promotional pricing for participating in early testing of the device. That said, I stand by my review.
