Rated 4 out of 5 by from This camera is everything it purports to be. Very pleased with this camera. This camera with all its features is worth every cent. The abilty to present an actual video of the problem area to the customer is invaluable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged, Easy to Use, Cost-effective The micro CA-300 was an occasional-use purchase for application when carrying out surveys / reporting on defective mechanical and electrical services installations in buildings (but NOT using the camera near live electrical conductors). I have previously hired much more sophisticated remote camera equipment for this task, but the micro CA-300 has proved a better balance between ruggedness, ease of use and cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful surprise!!!!! I was very pleased with the quality of this camera. Its a big camera in a small camera body. Very clear image and the ability to use it in fixtures like toilets and others make it a great fit for plumbing service. Rigid has scored another touchdown with this tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a bad product for the price. Only thing that is a concern is that the battery door assembly can break easily, but Ridgid was very good at replacing it.

I just recently opened my new Micro CA-300 Inspection Camera and their is an ABC plumbing showing in its screen. How do I remove/change this info?

The information is showing ABC Plumbing with phone number. I believe it is generic or part of the demo, but how do I remove or change it to my company's name and info?
Asked by: Ernesto
That sounds like it is paired up with one of the micro reels and that message is a function of the count plus on the reel. The message should go away if you press and release the T button on the center of the reel. Please feel free to give us a call at 800-519-3456 if it doesn't go away so we can troubleshoot with you over the phone.

Why wont my pictures download to my ipad?

I own both the micro explorer and now the ca-300. With the Mico explorer i am able to take the SD card and plug it into an adapter to download pictures into my ipad. With the ca-300 i am not able to do this same function. Any solutions? i am updated to v2.4 one the ca-300 which is the most up to date firmware.
Asked by: TheStreetsLA
So far I have figured out that the iPad needs the pictures to be in a folder named DCIM and the ca-300 makes a folder named photos.
