I just received mine yesterday and... It's going back.
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 Milwaukee video inspection camera is a very use full tool if you need to see what you normally would not be able to. It will get into places that you would never be able to see. Great for automotive work! I bought it to work on our equipment and trucks, also to use in the field to inspect pipes for blockage problems and look into walls. Overall I find this is a very useful tool and the image is good but not great. One annoyance I find is the power button location. It is right on the front middle and I find myself shutting it off by accident from time to time as i am moving the thing around to get a better view. The picture quality as one reviewer noted is a little grainy, as you increase the zoom it gets worse, it is just like using digital zoom on any camera and the result is it gets a bit worse but by no means not visible or detailed. I think it would be impossible for such a small camera to get a lens with a better focal range for the price of $[...]! The camera is also...
I was trying to replace an engine sensor buried behind and under the motor on my Nissan Altima. Not being able to see what I was doing in such a confined space made it impossible to finish the job, so I bought the Milwaukee M-Spector so I could see what I was doing. It was AWESOME! I could guide the tools where they needed to go, and put the new part in its place in the correct orientation without any difficulty. I can't imagine working on my car without it.
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...
