I'm buying an endoscopic camera for looking inside . Can anyone recommend one they've used before?

I bought this unit four years ago for general use around the house/shop. Dunno if it'll suit your specific needs, but has always worked well for me. It uses your phone as the display via wi-fi.

    @mathew @TheConversationUS @histodons I saw them in concert in Seattle in '83. At the end of the show, they tossed their hats into the crowd. To this day, I still wish I'd been able to grab one. 😄

    @nixCraft Ooh, good reminder! I've been having trouble getting an old version of CloneCD to install on W7. Now I'm going to have to dig up Nero and see if I can get it to work!
