The Explorer Digital Endoscope provides a large screen size and the capacity to record still images or video on to a microSD / microSDHC card (not included) whilst maintaining all of the fantastic functionality of the previous model. It is ideal for gaining still or video images from inside burrows, inaccessible nest sites, bat roosts or a wide variety of other uses. The screen can be detached from the endoscope whilst in operation and footage can still be viewed on the screen. So, one person can be balancing precariously up a ladder checking roosts whilst the rest of the group views the footage from the safety of the ground! With an effective wireless range of over 10 metres, the screen and endoscope do not even have to be near each other.
