When buying an inspection camera, you should ensure that the following are offered:

* An image sensor or camera
* It must allow for easy visual inspection of places you cannot reach
* Must be water proof - if used underwater
* Have a good night vision range - if required
* Good rechargeable battery to ensure portability
* Must be lightweight, handhold
* Must have accessories such as hook mirror and magnet - if being used in engineering
* An LCD screen to view the images live

You should always check the quality of the camera - it should have a high resolution TV Line and have the ability to see in the dark using Infra red leds or White LEDs. If colour images are important to you - White LEDS are a Must.

Ensure that your inspection camera provider are offering a full warranty with the product and that you can obtain a statement of conformity from them.
