Tool Review: Harbor Freight’s Digital Inspection Camera

I went into my local Harbor Freight Tools store and picked up a Digital Inspection Camera with 2.4″ Color LCD Monitor. It takes 4 AA batteries (not included), so I picked up a 24 pack of AA batteries from Harbor Freight as well for under $6 bucks – great price and now I have back up batteries! Some online recon revealed that competitive brands of inspection cameras with monitors were exorbitantly higher priced than the Harbor Freight version at under a $120. Would the Digital Inspection Camera from Harbor Freight deliver on its claims? That was my mission and I chose to accept it–fortunately, the  Camera did not self destruct in five seconds.

Make easy visual inspections even in hard-to-reach places

The packaging claimed that with this device, I could “make easy visual inspections, even in hard-to-reach places.”  I couldn’t count the number of times I’d dropped hardware into the abyss of heavy machinery or needed to inspect behind a wall before drilling into it. And then there’s dropping keys that somehow get kicked under a shelving unit with 40 metric tons of equipment on it. Hopefully, the Digital Inspection Camera could help remedy these types of situations.

The light at the end of the camera provides the 4 ft. night vision as described previously and also illuminates the tight spaces you’re in, which are usually dark. This became especially useful as I soon discovered.

The monitor is amply sized at 2.4″ and provided easy viewing but to document my adventure, I utilized another useful feature of the device. With the included video cable, I was able to plug the device into the video-in port on my wide screen TV. Then I practically had theater viewing.

Once you start using the Digital Inspection Camera with 2.4″ Color LCD Monitor, you’ll never know how you lived without it! The device is easy to assemble and operate. The lighted camera integrated into the end of a three foot flex hose provides excellent maneuverability in hard-to-reach areas, and the monitor picture is clear and detailed. The attachments are extremely useful! The hook is ideal for locating/feeding wires behind walls or behind equipment. The magnet is effective in picking up fallen hardware and even small tools. The angled mirror allows you to view underneath places where you would not be able to bend the flex hose.

From plumbing and electrical work to retrieving lost items and viewing places that are otherwise inconvenient or inaccessible to reach, you owe it yourself to get the Digital Inspection Camera with 2.4″ Color LCD Monitor.
