noun

Definition

Push Cameras are lower-end inspection cameras that get their name from how they are inserted into the inspection area. Literally pushed or “fed” into the inspection area, these cameras will not articulate and will often lack basic features that are native to modern-day Video Borescopes and Videoscopes. Like Drain Cameras, Pipe Cameras, Sewer Cameras, and Borehole Cameras, Push Cameras are reserved for applications where corners, turns, forks, and FOD (Foreign Object Debris) are not involved. The downside to a Push Camera and other non-articulating inspection cameras is the loss of control. Once the Distal Tip or “head” of the unit is past the insertion point, very little can be done to manipulate or steer the direction of the camera.
