Endoscope / Video Camera Question

If you notice in the picture (the green cord), I'm using the bungee cord technique- no air compressor! I'm at peace with my neighbors and my wife as I quietly work late evenings.
"... difficult to see areas" pretty much defines the entire job. Would you tell me what you used for a camera to get those big, sharp, images?

When I did the seal job on my buddies 2008 X5, I used a Ridgid brand micro CA-25 Camera. It really didn't work very well as it couldn't focus up close; it also had a tiny view screen. Each day after doing a couple of cylinders, I would come inside and look at your photos in this thread with envy.
