    Very interesting! Can you control where the head is looking at all, or will it just hang loose at the end of the cable?

    If it is like the larger ones, the cable is semi-flexible. It won’t flop around, but it’ll bend when you need it to. It’s very similar to a drain auger.

    When I get one in my hands, I’ll be able to tell you for sure. But being in the programming area at ToolBarn, that may be a while.

    I bought the Ridgid SeeSnake micro and was disappointed with it. It’s better in theory than in practice. I wanted to use it to look into a short section of sewer pipe, but it didn’t work well. The camera isn’t wide angle enough to show the whole pipe: it often just showed one wall. Also if the camera snakehead got gunk on it (usual, for a sewer!) then the image got blotted out. Somehow the $3900-5000 regular SeeSnakes that plumbers use don’t have this problem. Also, the lights don’t work well, they create glare and I couldn’t see much. Again, the more expensive, regular SeeSnakes don’t have this problem. Even putting the SeeSnake Micro down a wall didn’t give very impressive results. Lots of glare, not wide enough angle view. I think they ought to make the snake less rigid, more bendable, and put a more wide angle lens on the camera.

    It’s very easy to add a composite video out to this tool. I added one as well as a wireless video transmitter to record video and still captures on my laptop. The larger screen makes it easier to see the detail of what you are inspecting.
