The DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope is a perfect example of the more modern options available on the market today, a wireless unit that works perfectly with both Android and iOS devices – mobile devices – to provide you unparalleled flexibility and ease of use.
It’s tough to imagine a unit as inexpensive as this one being able to go toe to toe with other top-tier dedicated endoscope products, but a lot of people find this to not only be an adequate replacement for those single-purpose units – but also more of a pleasure to use because of how simple, straightforward, and how continuously updated it is.
Manipulating the 11 ½ foot cable is pretty simple and straightforward when you can use both hands to do so while the images being wirelessly transmitted to a smart phone or a mobile device within the built-in Wi-Fi range of this unit.
That alone is reason enough to consider moving forward with the DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope option.
The fact that this unit works off of a wireless Wi-Fi signal that it itself can produce (though you can also use other Wi-Fi signals if they are stronger) is nothing short of exceptional.
By separating the camera probe system directly from the visual feedback and control module you’re able to move and manipulate your probe with both hands, gaining a lot of extra control and a lot more finesse that would have been difficult if you were balancing a traditional control module in your offhand.
The camera technology built into this probe system is a little bit wider and a little bit thicker than some of the other cameras (measures in at 8.5 mm in diameter) and the probe isn’t quite as long – but it’s semi-rigid flexibility and “memory” provides a stable picture over Wi-Fi as well.
The most incredible thing about the DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope unit is that it features a mobile interface that is about as easy to use as any of your favorite mobile applications and uses the power of your touchscreen to get the job done.
This means that maneuvers you are already comfortable with – pinch to zoom, for example – are going to give you a much finer level of control over your probe than you would have had otherwise.
Best of all, you’ll be able to use this probe wirelessly with almost all of your smart phone devices – Android and iOS devices alike. As long as you’re running at least Android version 2.3 and/or iOS version 6.0 you’ll be good to go with this unit paired to your mobile phone, tablet, or even things like chromebooks.
The camera quality of this unit is nothing short of spectacular, with a state-of-the-art 1200p high definition camera handling the heavy lifting when it comes to providing wireless video and still images in HD.
Because of this camera technology you can record HD video in AVI format (and transmitted wirelessly to a computer or save the video to your phone/tablet), but you’ll also be able to record snapshots in JPEG format in a multitude of different resolutions.
All of this is again possible thanks to the way that the DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope coordinates directly with your smart phone or your tablet. It doesn’t get much better (or easier to use) than that!
Capture and Storage Options
Capturing capabilities are handled directly on the smart phone or tablet that this endoscope has been paired with, though it works universally the same across-the-board. You’ll be able to select whether or not you want to record high definition video (and how long of a video you’d like to record) but you’ll also be able to pick and choose from amongst four different HD resolutions for still image capture as well.
All of these captures can be initialized using the touchscreen on your phone or tablet, with commands wirelessly sent back to the endoscope almost instantaneously. Storage options are only limited by the amount of storage you have on your phone or tablet.
Battery life on this Wi-Fi module endoscope is pretty spectacular, with upwards of six hours of continuous runtime possible. On top of that, you will be able to quick charge the latest lithium-ion battery technology inside of this unit almost instantly – bringing a 100% dead battery back to 50% in 30 minutes and to 100% battery life in a little over 75 minutes.
Probe Length and Flexibility
The probe length on the DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope unit is a little bit restrictive compared to some of the other options on the market today, measuring in at just 11.5 feet.
At the same time, this is usually more than enough to reach all kinds of tight corners and impossible to otherwise visualize spaces and the semirigid but still flexible cable allows you to have a lot more control over the maneuverability of the probe.
Internal iron wire support structure helps to give this a little bit more stability, improving the overall visual quality of the fixed zoom level of the camera. This means you’ll have plenty of “wiggle” to get your probe into the right position with the DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope but you won’t have to worry about the probe cable being too flexible and flopping all over the place when you’re trying to get a stable image from the camera.
DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope - Summary
All things considered, this wireless unit is certainly one of the best options in the endoscope landscape today – representing the future of these kinds of tools with its Wi-Fi connectivity and ability to parent neatly with today’s modern mobile devices.
The thing that really helps to separate the DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope unit from the rest of the pack has to be that it is about as future proof as you’re going to get. The technology will work with ALL mobile devices from now on, Android and iOS alike, and the user interface can be improved on the fly with each new technological advancement.
A lot of standalone units do not have this kind of flexibility, but that’s never going to be a problem with the DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope device.
