The COBRA Inspection Pole Camera is a battery operated lightweight with a telescoping shaft system that permits viewing in difficult to access areas either above or below ground. With these abilities you can inspect attics, suspended ceilings, eavestrough’s, gutters, sewers or wells.
This Pole Camera is very easy to handle and gives you a very crisp and clear image either in daylight or the dark thanks to an advanced CMOS camera chip with 12 built-in IR LEDs for viewing up to 33ft. (10m) away. The telescoping pole can be retracted from 5.25ft. (1.6m) to 13.12ft. (4m).
The camera head is housed in a durable acetal body. Its housing is hinged at the base to allow multi positioning of the head. The camera mount is made from acetal which is permanently fixed to the end of the telescopic pole. The camera kit includes tools to permanently lock the camera in a desired position.
The 5'' TFT LCD display with a sunshield (700 TVL resolution) guarantees high image quality. Instead of standard LED lights that strike the eye as soon as they are lit, the COBRA pole camera features infrared LEDs making the camera virtually undetectable from a distance. A built-in electronic sensor automatically compensates for daylight. The inspection system is powered with extremely low discharge rechargeable battery which provides no less than 3 hours of continuous operation on a full charge. It takes just above 2 hours to fully charge the battery. In addition, COBRA pole cameras come equipped with a back-up battery which may prove crucial if the inspection takes a long time.
With an operation weight of just under 2.7 kg and a 1.8m linking cable makes this is a very portable and comfortable unit to use on any job site.
The Military Spec tactical version of the system is available. This is a state of the art inspection device designed with law enforcement agencies' needs and requirements in mind. The tactical pole camera is an extremely lightweight (less than 6 lbs.) and portable device which can easily be carried in a small bag or a backpack. While a standard unit consists of three fiberglass sections, the tactical one is made with seven section of carbon fiber, which allows the device to collapse to a much shorter size of only 2.87ft. (0.875m). The reach of the retractable pole is up to 10.3ft. (3.14m). The length of the linking cable between the display and the pole is 1m.
A roller coaster wheel developed specifically for under vehicle inspections is available as an option. Depending on customer's needs, the COBRA pole camera is available either without (default configuration) or with the recording capability.
All these thoughtfully designed features make a retractable pole camera COBRA an indispensable piece of equipment for contactors, rescue teams, border protection and security agencies, police forces, military, or SWAT regiments.
The system is covered with a 1 year warranty against all manufacturing defects.

Can you take still images?

Hi Nathan, we have two versions - live video and with recording. The camera with recording can only record avi files and the system also comes with software that allows you do still jpeg pictures out of video files on your PC.
