Best borescopes and inspection cameras in 2024: see the things you can't reach!

The best borescopes – sometimes called inspection cameras – have become must-have accessories for tradesmen and DIYers to inspect drains, pipes, and wiring without removing walls and ceilings. They are also brilliant tools for mechanics and car enthusiasts, as they'll give a clear view of the hard-to-reach engine or suspension parts without hours of dismantling.
