Hi all

Me and my friend have been looking into getting some more optics to the arsenal, but it seems to be half-impossible to find anything else than those crappy USB-snake cameras and when you do find something other it seems to be Storz and costs easily north of 2k.

So, where do you guys buy these without breaking your budget, we are generally looking for 4 mm diameter in lengths 175 to 300 mm and with different view angles, but of course more is better.

the one i got from ebay shipped from china was great for what i needed to do but i'm sure you are looking for stuff for one for safes, etc...

You are probably going to have to go with a locksmith supply distributor such as H.L. FLAKE, easy to make an account, dunno if they would ship to Finland but I can check to see what they have.

This is what i found "cheap" with a quick search:

MDS Video Borescope - VS-1000-24

looks like they dont have any in stock now, but i'm just giving you an idea of what they have / can get.

Alex (Frenchkey) at OFC has a small selection on offer. I'm sure he'd be happy to help you source others too.
