          You can't get much more on topic than that. Other members ask this kind of question all the time on other posts and they never get marked as off topic.

    The picture shows it with a Galaxy s6 I think so im guessing this is a USB micro plug rather than usb c? A cheap cam like this would be handy.

    Great coupon name btw.

          Sorry about that. As a mechanic and a locksmith, my initial thoughts were not to shove this thing down a toilet or up someone’s arse, so the joke was a little lost on me…

      I have one of these, I had a S8 and used a Type-C adapter and could not get it to work. I plugged into my S6 without adapter and works fine…just a warning, could be user error.

      •  

        I need an adapter myself. Did you manage to get it working at all? I'm looking for recommendations…e.g. does it need to be OTG specific etc.?

          @HARSHREALITY:
          I haven't worked out what humour is acceptable here. Sometimes really unfunny comments get lots of upvotes, sometimes they get punished. At least you only got a few negs! :)

          I conclude that ozbargain can be moody, and if you try to be funny it may not go over well. Don't let it get you down!

    I have no need for it (not that that is a good reason not to buy) and it's probably rubbish quality but a +1 purely for the coupon code! Nice one!

    So, can anyone confirm if this is USB-C or Micro USB? I can't find it in the description…

      I'd like to know too…saves me going to hospital for an endoscopy if it's USB-C :-)

      Pretty sure it's Micro as I bought the exact same unit from GearBest a few months ago and it is Micro: https://www.gearbest.com/microscopes-endoscope/pp_229387.htm...

      •  

        Cheers S&B. I'll need an adapter then. Have you had much of a play? Down a drain or the loo by any chance, and if so, how practical is it, i.e. resolution, visibility?

        •  

          No problem. Yeah, just wrote the comment below. Used/using it a fair bit during house renovation/rebuild. Not sure I'll need it much afterwards but at these prices you really can't go wrong… even just using it once then forgetting where you packed it away for safe keeping :)

        •  

          @SteveAndBelle: Excellent. Did you need an adapter? Just wondering whether it needs to be OTG specific. MichaelBurns mentioned above that he bought on and didn't work…

        •  

          @ScottyP: Nah, just Plug & Play! Was really surprised at how quick & easy it was as I needed to find something in a hurry and it took no time at all on my SGS7Edge. Might be different with other handsets, not sure.

      It is micro-B-male-OTG.

      Also include a an adapter for USB-A, so you can use it with a laptop/PC.
      Its a generic USB camera, so works in Windows, Linux, OSX etc.

      Its a shame Apple does not support USB cameras in iPhones.

    These are brilliant! Got one from GearBest a few months back. Have used it many times during a house renovation/rebuild for peering into wall cavities to trace cabling & pipework. Not the best resolution but absolutely fine for general purpose tasks. Just got another one. 3D VR Endoscope here I come :p

      does it have an inbuilt light, if so I could probably get some use out of it, otherwise, nah

        Yep, it has a dimmable light. Small LED chips surrounding the camera lens. Kinda pointless without inbuilt illumination. Example of very similar (if not exact) unit here: https://youtu.be/NVgwPdrOsqk?t=4m1s

    Bought something similar in the past but the included software was shizen so I never managed to get it to work.
    Anyone know where I could find reliable software for it?

    •  

      I haven't used mine for a month or so but I do remember being very impressed with this one in that it was literally Plug & Play on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Plugged it in expecting to have dramas with apps etc. but I'm pretty sure (& can confirm when I get home) that it somehow just instantly displayed the footage from the camera on screen without having to do anything else… not even open the default camera app! Again, I'll check it tonight but yeah, great device.

      •  

        OK cool, this may be the perfect replacement if it works that seamlessly!

        •  

          Yeah, I'm trying to find a YouTube video but from the ones I've just watched it looks like an App is required. Maybe mine did need an App afterall. I've forgotten now but I do remember it just worked so flawlessly I had it all up and running pretty much instantly.

          EDIT: I think this may be the unit… but I'll confirm when I get home: https://youtu.be/NVgwPdrOsqk?t=4m1s

      I've used UsbWebCamera, found it to work well.

      It can depend on your phone and the driver support it has for usb cameras as to whether it works properly.

      •  

        OK cheers for the suggestion

  •  

    Got one of these, the FIX focal distance of 6cm is not useful for it purpose. When probing something eg, circuit board, ear canal… 6cm is too far away you can hardly make out what it is and if you try to move closer everything is out of focus. Most things this probe can be use for are gaps less then 6cm hence out of focus.

    •  

      Ear canal?

      •  

        Yes i try looking in the ear LOL distant to ear drum is less then 6cm ie no use.. that the only canal i look in honest!

        •  

          I'd have thought it'd be too wide for that. I'd have thought most people would mostly want it for checking inside walls for leaks or pests.

        •  

          @sheepdog: you can get a 5mm version… though i can can get a cheap selfdiagnose "Otoscope"

    •  

      FIX focal distance of 6cm is not useful for it purpose.

      Works fine for me. The purpose is inspecting drains and pipes.
      Depth of field is good - can see as close as 2-3cm.
      Uses own LEDs, so small aperture.

    •

      Too wide for the average OzBargainer then.

      We might need the small size.

    The problem I found with these is the focus on close objects is appalling, when you are poking it into a tight spot to get a look, you generally want to look at close-up objects.

      I think you could fix that with a simple domed lens to stick over the end. No idea where you'd get an appropriate sized one though.
