Bosch Professional GIC 120 C

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

sewer camera bosch professional gic 120 cThis Bosch Professional is not only used to inspect pipes, but also knows how to make itself useful to see more clearly in all those hard-to-reach places! Thanks to its length of 120 cm, it slips everywhere with effect and its powerful LED illuminates the space. In addition, to guarantee perfect visibility, a black and white function can be activated in addition to the digital zoom: the contrasts are then better to distinguish each detail. With its compact and very ergonomic shape, this camera is also easier to hold and use, even in unusual positions. Quick Connector Technology makes it easy to unplug the cord for storage after use. Wireless, the device finally works thanks to the 4 AA batteries provided, as well as a hook, a magnet and a mirror.

My opinion : Inspections of drains, pipes, wall cavities, hydraulic systems, this camera from Bosch Professional really can do it all. You can even use it for car mechanics! Of all the models I have tried, this is without a doubt my favorite. In addition to being very easy to use, it is practical and the image it returns is of good quality, which is simply essential (especially since the screen is not too small, which is also an asset). Its 120 cm cable is more than enough, enough to explore inaccessible places without complicating its deployment. If you need a tool of this type for your professional activity, this is definitely the one I recommend!

anysun ihbuds tube cameraThe real professional endoscope! This Anysun is not content with its 50 m long cable, it also has all the essential technical characteristics for efficient use. The camera it is equipped with is able to capture color video with perfectly perceptible details, especially since 12 LEDs illuminate the inspected area. Even an image recording function is available, an 8GB SD card is also provided. Thanks to its sapphire lens, it is not at all afraid of scratches, nor of water, since it is IP68 waterproof. Made of PVC coated fiberglass, it is also very durable. The case in which it is included has also been designed to make it more practical to use: a winder makes it easy to store and, having the shape of a briefcase, it is easy to transport from one operation to another.

My opinion : Hard to be more complete than this tube camera! To go and inspect very long ducts and pipes, it is really up to the task: with its 50 m, it is one of those which offers the most travel. But what I liked the most about this model is the excellent design and the many functions. The manufacturing quality is there, the image provided is of good quality and being able to save it is a real plus. Especially since even if an 8 GB SD card is provided, it is possible to replace it with a 32 GB one! The case is also very practical, with additional locks to secure the material. The price is high, but the investment is worth it: it is an excellent professional device!

zoto sewer cameraA quality picture! The Zoto has a 4.3-inch screen with a resolution of 2 megapixels: visually, every detail is clear, especially since it is possible to zoom. To make sure you don’t miss anything, the device also offers the possibility of recording a video or taking photos thanks to an integrated memory powered by an SD card that can reach up to 64 GB. – it is even waterproof – (IP67), offers a viewing angle of 60° and is equipped with 8 LEDs to perfectly illuminate the inspection area. With its 7mm diameter, the semi-rigid cable fits everywhere and has a total length of 5m. Finally, the device works thanks to a 2600 mAh battery that guarantees an autonomy of about 5-6 hours.

My opinion : The best value for money you can find! This inspection camera was a nice surprise – I had no idea what it was going to look like, but Zoto did a great job. It’s really well thought out, well designed, and has what it takes to help in a lot of situations. The image delivered is of good quality, and even if it is not in HD, it is very sharp and thanks to the large screen, you can see it quite clearly. The device is not perfect, the lens is for example a bit too flat, and mud and dirt are not removed, but these are just details that do not spoil the overall good impression. With an SD card and storage case included, this is one endoscope I highly recommend!

Bosch Universal Inspection

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

bosch universal sewer inspection cameraBosch Universal Inspect was designed from the ground up to allow anyone to inspect your pipes on their own to easily locate blockages or damage. Indeed, it is a camera that offers optimal visibility: thanks to its head equipped with 4 LEDs with 8 levels of brightness, it is possible to find the perfect setting according to the situation, and with in addition 3 levels of zoom and a white black and white, contrasts and details are better noticed. Easy to use, it also has 3 buttons that activate each of its functions. In addition to lighting, the first allows 180° rotation while the second can store up to 8 photos (a micro-SD card from 4 to 32 GB can be inserted into the device). The 95 cm long cord can finally be easily rolled up for quick storage!

My opinion : A perfect inspection camera for do-it-yourselfers! In general, Bosch can be trusted to deliver well-designed and useful devices, and that’s again the case here with this Universal Inspect. While it is clearly not intended for professional use, it is on the contrary very useful for carrying out certain repairs yourself and going to inspect cavities, cracks or even inside the mechanism of the car or appliances. For this it has what matters above all, that is to say a waterproof protection and a sufficient length at the level of the cable. Even so, I prefer to warn that the resolution is not terrible, but it is more than enough for this type of home use. And for less than 100 €, it is therefore a good choice.

yinama sewer chamberThis Yinama endoscope comes with a 5m long cable, allowing you to inspect both behind a bulkhead and in a long pipe. Its camera is accompanied by 6 LEDs whose brightness is adjustable: they thus make it possible to transcribe the image as faithfully as possible, an image which is displayed on a 2.4-inch screen. Both this cable and camera are IP67 rated, making them dust and water resistant for efficient work in all conditions. The compact device also comes with 4 accessories (a hook, a magnet, a waterproof cap and a mirror) which allow you to solve the problem encountered, such as recovering an object which obstructs the pipe for example. Finally, it comes with a 32GB SD card to capture photos and videos for analysis.

My opinion : With cheap devices you often expect not to be completely satisfied, but Yinama proves the opposite here! For an inspection camera under $40, you really don’t have to be ashamed of its capabilities. So yes, the screen resolution isn’t exceptional, but that’s really the only thing I could fault it for. The semi-rigid cable allows you to dive deep into pipes, the LEDs offer excellent brightness and, since the assembly is waterproof, the device can be used in multiple ways. For the price, the brand even offers several useful accessories, as well as an SD card! So it’s hard not to appreciate this camera, it’s the kind of accessory that you can always use and that everyone should have in their toolbox!
