  • Huh.......interesting

    Anyone see the latest Plumber magazine? 20 push cameras were highlighted. 17 of them had the monitor mounted on the frame for easier viewing.

    Any guess on the 3 camera systems where the monitor is laying on the ground?

    Just to give you a hint.....Scooter and Easycam were 2 of them.

    my rm200 has a built in mount for the both the cs6 and cs65. I rarely use the mount for monitoring the sewer. just for transporting the camera system.

    I use the ground to get the best angle and avoid the sun or splash.

      Those mounts on the RM200 are for transportation only. Those other 17 cameras I mentioned are for transportation AND viewing. From personal experience, having the CS6X mounted on the frame is a must have feature.....I haven't figured out how to tilt the ground yet and the monitor is out the dirt or crappy covered floor.

      If I can come up with something this useful and versatile as a simple plumber, imagine what Ridgid could come up with if they wanted too. This is a working model I've been using since Mar of 2014. Has caused zero issues with the frame or CS6X while preserving life of the interconnect cord and making my inspections easier.

      Or plumbers that use Ridgid cameras can just keep doing yoga poses during inspections.

        not true. the cs6 can be used while mounted in the rm200 built in handle. I use it when the cleanout is overhead or at a level where standing is required.

        Why not use the CS6X in the RM200 built in handle all the time? Why do you only use when standing or with overhead cleanout?

        Typical cleanouts are ground level. I'm on the ground. With my reel off to the side and monitor on the ground within simple reach for stills and video buttons.

        When the cleanouts are higher, I stand up and therefore the monitor is also up.

      You may laugh but I love the big screen on the cs10. The clean out in that photo is rediculous. How the hell is somosom supposed to clean from that? Seen that a few times and I always cut em down.

        Wow no WAY. What happened now?! Mincam is a German company. Outstanding video quality, even pan and tilt. Talking to plumber from Europe, mincam is considered the top system even above ridgid. Rausch is the only distributer here so the repair centers are the only reason I'm not seriously considering them.

        BTW....let me know if you want to sell you microreel. I know a guy that modifies their capabilities to make it alot more versatile. But with the luck you've been having, maybe you should sell it to me lol

      I too love the large 12" monitors. Not sure you could mount that on a reel it might be way too top heavy.

      I usually like the reel behind me and the monitor in front on the ground. Different strokes for different folks

        the reel is behind you? Why did you start doing it that way? how do you feed the rod back in?

        Not far behind me. To my left side and just behind me. It's most natural/comfortable for me. Somewhat like the pic you posted above, the reel behind him with the monitor up front.
