How to make boroscope camera easily

How to make a borewell scanning camera with simple methods 

You can expect typical and common ideas over borewell scanning with simplest possible solutions at cheap cost
Borewell is generally an alien problem coming at difficult times.Here is an solution to view what's inside that long well.Sorry for customization i hereby tested it only for 105 meters (300 feet).This can be extended also in coming future.
This project is a idea breaker more than a technical sounds.There are two ways of doing it easily.
1.Using Raspberry Pi
2.Mobile phone
Method 1:
If you are in need of designing a full featured product by this,then obvious choice could be raspberry pi 3
Pi3 with Camera costs around Rs.5600 with OS raspbian on 8gb memory card
This project is highly depend on LAN cable nothing but RJ45...CAT6 (105meters) costs about Rs.950
As in previous article follow the instructions for installing raspbian OS with enabling VNC server.
Connect router to Rpi via LAN cable.Router costs from Rs.600 - 1500
Important Steps:
Installing and Configuring Rpi Cam Web interface
Open Terminal and type this command " sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y && sudo rpi-update " as this will provide latest libraries.
Next command is for installing git " sudo apt-get install git-core ".
After installing git download source code of Rpi cam from the below link
" git clone https://github.com/silvanmelchior/RPi_Cam_Web_Interface.git"
Move to the downloaded directory and make web interface ready for installation with the following commands
cd RPi_Cam_Web_Interface chmod u+x *.sh
start installation with this command " ./RPi_Cam_Web_Interface_Installer.sh" 
choose apache server and set password protection in next step.Click ok to finish installation. 
This will enable local host with cam interface 
Try a PC connected to router wifi and browse for localhost 
Now cover the Raspberry pi and camera with a waterproof case with power bank supply for Raspberry pi. 
Even if interested can make Led decoration with Rpi IO pins can be very sensible. 
Method 2: 
This method is far more easier.Not more technical.Things needed are Android phone,LAN cable and USB to Lan adaptor. 
Connect Router to phone via LAN and network establish connection
Now install track view app on the android phone and also install track view software on your pc connected to the router. This will enable camera control of the phone. 
Cover the Android phone with waterproof case and also hold better with LAN cable. 
With any one of the possible case you can immerse the product into the Borewell to take your scanning updates. 
Personally i have tried and get results for 300 ft successfully.With repeater mode of small one connection routers can extend to more foots. 
Hope this idea helps! in serious situations.
