Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of pushing the camera from an existing box, out into a wall or ceiling cavity, not so much the other way around.
Something such as, if I want to investigate the inside of an interior plumbing wet-wall above and around an existing wall switch or receptacle, before cutting in a box to add a new wall sconce in a bathroom… etc, etc, etc… you see what I’m driving at.

I was primarily giving some examples of things that can’t be done with the present setup that I would like to have been able to do in the past and will most likely want to do again at some time in the future.

So, now that I actually have the new camera head, I can say that the shaft is also definitely smaller in diameter than the old one. Just to give an idea of how small it is, it will pass through the hole of an MC connector with room to spare and will easily pass through a cable entry hole in a device box from the inside of the box. Apparently the new head is also compatible with the more expensive MicroExplorer camera as well.

Also, all of the Ridged camera heads are now made of machined aluminum, instead of plastic, so would be less likely to break if they get caught on something and you have to yank it back out.

When the smaller head first came out I read someone saying how the field of view was worse and that the original size head gave a better image.

Kayjay, what is your opinion on that?

Yes, I would say that it is different, since it only has one LED and is half the diameter of the old head.
I look at it like this... If I can't get the camera head into the space where I need it, the brightness and field of view are the least of my concerns.
I consider it another accessory and still carry the old camera head as well as a 3-foot extension coiled up in the bottom of the case under the foam insert.
