    Anyone have one, tried one? Have any advice for someone who is considering one?

    It still won’t make you a proper doctor.

    I want to try and see where the mice might be getting into our loft.

    It seems like the sort of thing that might find a lot of uses once you have it.

    I bought a distance lens for my old 6s, it was pretty good but wasn’t that good but it was only £30.

    I bought one for £10 on ebay.

    It was total junk.

    It was total looked at my junk junk

    Bought the a potensic branded one off Amazon. Took a bit of time to get it working with my Android tablet (permissions seemed no to play nice). Worked right off on the laptop. Works well, short focus though (around a foot, iirc). Has saved me a lot of time and swearing when trying to fish wires.

    Sprinkle a it of talc around, you’ll soon see where they are coming in.

    Bought one for similar handy use. It’s been okay, looked inside engines for broken bits, under floorboards and inside a borked boiler.

    Cheap and cheerful off Ebay. Can be tricky to work out which way up you are and the app is a bit buggy but it didn’t cost me a lot, so quite happy.

    I got a cheap one off eBay, works fine. Though needed a USB C adapter to use with my new phone.
    The included app was a bit crap, so bought the Mscopes Pro app for a couple quid, much better.

    I got a ‘Depstech’ branded one from Amazon. Worked well with an Iphone – great depth of field and a nice, clear picture.

    There are cheaper ones from the same brand, but this is the one I got:

    Have the same one as above, use in engines, fuselages and wings, excellent bit of kit.

    I bought a £10 one which is ok for the most basic of tasks, but given my time again I’d spent a bit more for better quality – say £30-40…

    Bought this a couple of months ago , it’s alright , mainly used it for engine work so far. controling it is the worst part , but thats always going to be a problem with these things. Steady hands required.

    Cheers guys. Happy to spend £30-40 for a better one. I’d like to avoid the trap of buying the £10 one but paying £30-40 for it!

    I have the following one:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01NBFTAHE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_dMfQpFKjBeOWQ

    Found the image quality pretty good. The picture is sent wirelessly to your phone which is used as the screen. The app while a little clunky is fine to use.

    I hardly use mine, if I can find where I put it you are welcome to borrow it.

    Bought a Depstech one as above for a very similar reason except Rats not mice! Pretty good quality and works simply and easily via wifi to iPhone. Being used to full-on moveable 10k plus endoscopes it was a pain not to be able to manipulate the end and use tools down it but goes that’s where the price difference is!

    Used mine to perform an ERCP 😉

    I bought a wireless one to find an earring the Missus dropped under the car seat! Paid for itself quickly and I found it easy to use -place the phone where can easily see it and not juggle endoscope and phone.

    full-on moveable 10k plus endoscopes

    And presumably the cheap ones are harder to break?
