  • What would be your perfect camera set up?

    Put all brand names aside what features would you love to have to make your push sewer camera perfect.


    Would like 300 feet.
    Pan and tilt
    Color
    Laser profile will show defects
    Distance counter
    Key board for logging info/or voice over mic
    DVR with flash drive
    Locate and depth
    15 inch screen. Most people can't see the picture mostly older people they just say yep OK.
    so a light pen for drawing on the screen would be cool. "See this" No Circle it oh OK I see it now.

    Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

      For me?
      #1 Durability-Needs to take the punishment I dish out
      #2 Size-If it's too big to keep on my truck, it will cost me money to retrieve it
      #3 User Friendly-Turn it on without fumbling around with wires, buttons or multiple components
      #4 DVR Capable
      #5 Cost-All the bells and whistles mean nothing if I can't afford it

      way down the list
      color-B&W is nice but color is better
      distance counter-means little if you don't know what direction it's going. A good locator is what's needed.
      A decent centering guide will let you see enough of the pipe so pan and tilt is not neccessary unless you are in over 6" pipes
      If the old man can't see the hairline crack in the pipe then it's probably nothing to worry about anyways

            I think a small 3 wheel motorized camerahead that can pull itself a little might be nice. A camera that you can trace the whole line would be good also.

              A camera that can go through a toilet trap would be awesome.








              that is under $500.00

                Well, I really don't know much about cameras but it would seem to me that being able to drop the info on a flash drive or sd card would be damn handy.

                Also being able to use my laptop for a monitor (negating the need for the aformentioned) would be really nice. You'd need to be able to use the locate feature with this.

                Think of the possiblities, you could stream your video to your customer in near real time to get approval for repairs. (I think that's possible, I really don't know but it sounds cool). Or e-mail them the file from the job!

                The main thing for me right now is being able to afford the silly thing, without having to update it later.

                  newsflash, the new dvd pack, lcd monitors all have the line trace feature. you do need to connect your transmitter to the tracing lug.

                    My old Camera had a thing to hook a box up to to trace the line. I'm not sure if it worked. Good to see ridgid has it.

                      One that Ridgid would let me have for 6 months to a year and give input on.


                      I could do it annually.
