    I would like to get the Testo 510 at some point though. Still in the market for a digital manometer and combustion analyzer. . .

    Resolution is one thing that you may want to consider for your inspection camera.

    Here are some photos of a dime with my TesoView, Rigid SeeSnake Micro and then The Inspector. Also took a shot of a capillary tube with the inspector. Resolution see for yourself.

    The Inspector



    The Inspector on a capillary tube. Notice the carbon build up? Nice resolution.

    If you get either the Rigid See Snake or Micro Explorer there is an optional 9.5 mm lens head in place of the standard 17 mm head.

    I just bought the ridgid inspect. camera, works great and by the way it comes in handy with customers, gives them visual reassurance.

    The 17 mm head is standard issue on both the micro's. The 9.5 mm head, from what I can glean from the Rigid site, is an accessory just like the extensions.

    What about the Snap On

    I know Snap On is primarily automotive tools, but I am considering their BK5500 inspection camera. Has anyone got one??? It has about twice the resolution of the Milwaukee, and the camera is about half the size, cost about $400. Downside is the extra cost and non-rechargeable battery.
