Video camera to do gutter inspections.


Recommended Posts

I need to get a gutter inspection camera, no idea why but ive been looking at the expensive ones and the hero 2 and hero 3 cameras, which are about £250-300.


Somethin in my head clicked, i remembered smurf talking about his cannon g6 camera he uses. I just thought well why dont i get a normal video camera with a little screen on it?! Sounds a lot cheaper to me.


So i found these on ebay



Im thinking for £50-80 for one of these would be better for the pocket.


Only thing is though, am i going to have a hard time finding something that i can use to mount it to a pole??

I would say normal video cameras even the smaller ones are too big and bulky to mount on a pole @Andykarlaxxx


If I need to get another one to replace me g7 will try next a much smaller one like a gopro g3 that can also be used in real time using a smart phone and app.


Cheapest method but I've not tried it just for doing surveys is if you already own a smart phone most if not all take vid clips so all you need to do like mark m vid is buy a bike case mount for it;)
