LOL @ listing the resolution as "1200p!"

That's NOT how it works guys. The number you use is the second one, the "720." This is a 720p resolution. not a 1200p. Technically, that is HD, but just barely.

Unfortunately, unethical marketroids decided about 6-7 years ago that anything better than 480i (i.e. standard def) qualified as "HD".

Can't complain too much for $30 though. The old one I have is 640x480.

Hmmmm. This could be useful in my back alley colonoscopy business. This would probably be way better than flashlight and empty wrapping paper roll I’m using now.

Will this product be a good upgrade for the upcoming colonoscopy in Mid May?

Am waiting to see how things come out.

+1

You wanna talk "unethical marketroids"? Another good place to start is with the total BS of "List Price" being "$199.99" and the discount being 85%. What a load of crapola.

Does this include the "carrying case" as per the Amazon listing?

There's no better value for the money than a Colonoscopy Party! I think that since you can share pics and videos with your friends, and it broadcasts via WiFi, why wait until then?

I'm in with Vince McMahon and we're starting up a Butt Chugging League. These devices will do for the BCL, what the SkyCam does for football...Screw on the waterproof cap and you can have an "inside view" of the butt chugging competition. Revolutionary breakthrough in live sports broadcasting! In for 3!!!

Does anyone know if this is going to work with iOS 11? I see a lot of the ones on Amazon have trouble with that.

Nothing unethical about it at all. Both 1200x720 and 1920x1080 are part of the HD spec, and both are far better visually than 480. That most things are now 2K or 4K doesn't change the fact that 1200x720 is also HD, and for any small camera that's quite good.

Beyond that the real problem with endoscopes is it's difficult to find anything that is sub 5mm to inspect cylinders through the spark plug hole that doesn't cost a lot more.

I think the thing you really want to notice is the focal length. Your lens will need to be 5 - 8mm away from whatever you're looking at to get a clear picture.

Under 2.5 hours for a colonoscopy mention. Not bad.

Rental car companies have pulled the same "adjustment". A "mid sized" car NOW use to be a compact back in the day.

Indeed you are misinterpreting their specifications. The maximum resolution is 1600 x 1200. It is correct to call this 1200p.

I bought this the last time it was offered on Woot. It is a piece of junk; completely unusable. The depth of field is so small that it will only focus at an incredibly small range of distance. Even when it is 'in focus', the image is so poor it is almost impossible to tell what you are looking at. DO NOT BUY THIS.

Does anyone know how long the scope is? I see that it supports 15m communication range, but I haven't found how long the probe itself is.

Thanks!

This is not an endoscope. This is a borescope. Please do not put this in your body.

I have a similar Chinese borescope and it's not horrible. There are a large of number apps on the google play store that it works with.

The cord looks long enough to check your teeth from the backside during a colonoscopy.

I also bought the last one they had for sale here on woot (slightly different model, same manufacturer). I could not get it to work at all. Tried three different apps on three different Android devices. One at least got the light to come on, that was it. No picture. They really should include lube with purchase.

I think it's a misprint. I think it is supposed to be a 1600x1200 HD resolution, and they just call it 1200p. At least, that's what I'm seeing on similar models on Amazon........

So do you still have to go on a clear liquid diet for two days before using this endoscope?

Thanks. Silly me, I went to the "Specs" tab to find it, but now I see it is on the "Features" tab. Please tell me that it was only recently added to that page and that the coffee is still working for me.

I'd hate to find out that my 'go-to' medicine is longer doing its job. I mean, they call it "drip coffee" because you take it intravenously, right?
