    Question US&R cameras inqury

    My department is looking to pick up some urban search and rescue cameras and we would like to compare different cameras out there. Since we plan on spending a lot of money, it would be great to hear about the cameras that are out there being used. We know about the SearchCam series as well as the Zistos.

    We need something with visual, of course, and something with 2 way communication where we would be able to listen to or communicate with the victim. It'd be nice to have something with a long extension as well.

    What other kind of cameras are out there? What cameras do you all use?

    Thanks!

    Question Brands of search cameras

    CaptOldTimer,

    Thank you for that reference, I appreciate it! While it is a huge list, its not very specific to the brands or types of cameras I am looking for. Simply just has "searchcam or equivelent". I would really like to get an idea of what is being used out there.

    Thanks again, though!

    Anyone else??

    Stay safe.

    Saver, I think the Capt was giving you the USAR list of the items in the cache.

    You might want to check with one of the USAR Teams in your area. Not knowing where you are located, you can look the web site and find the nearest team to you. Write, call or visit them to seek what they are using.
