    Re: SeeSnake Poll

    since i just got my Color Compact recently and don't have recording capabilities, yet i really can't vote. but of the times i've used it (probably a dozen) i'd have recorded 3 times had i had the ability.

      I no longer record

      We have an older B&W SeeSnake that used to record to VHS

      Then practically overnight no one had a VHS player anymore

      Then we went to coverting to DVD and that became a hassle after a while so we gave up on recording. Very few customers ask about keeping a copy but if they do I sub it out to a competiture who has a DVD SeeSnake. How long before no one has a DVD player?

      The camera doesn't go out unless we suspect there is a problem with the sewer. With nearly half of our service work through management companies by the time we do the camera inspection, copy to DVD, and send to management or homeowner too much time has past. The whole process needs to be sped up so critical decisions can be made on repairs/replacements

      We are in the market for a new system but after shopping camera technology around not much out there impresses me within our budget

        what i'm trying to get is the Archos 605/30 gig with travel adaptor to record on. i can then take the video and download it to the laptop and add titles and voice over as needed. then i can burn a DVD for the client. my goal is to do video inspections for those interested in buying a home or commercial property.

          Every time I do an inspection, I ask the customer if they want a tape and they usually say no. The usual reason is they don't have vhs anymore.

            99% of the time i record the line. there have only been a couple of instances that the customer didn't have a vcr and 1 didn't have a tv

            the tape is only $1.00 and it's the real proof of your findings.

            even if the line is totally plugged and black. there is still an intro and plenty of info on the tape that can be recorded with a voice over.

                  I'll record if I'm trying to document something, either for the customer or for myself. Often I camera to locate a septic tank, or just to put my mind at rest about a line, or to see if there is another access to a line, or to verify distances for a line I will be maintenance jetting regularly. In these cases I don't usually record.
                  This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

                      I have gotten in the habit of putting everything on DVD, if anything else, in my mind, because I have my Logo and company info on the DVD, it is another way to market my customer.

                      This reason, plus the multitude of others that have already been mentioned.
