I got the ring borescope from Costco for about £70 when doing up the house it became very helpful as could bore a 10mm hole and then inspect voids for putting cable lights and other stuff, aldi and lidl sometimes have ok ones as well

You could try a USB endoscope camera lots to choose from HERE. You could run it from a laptop.

I've got a cheap eBay endoscope that runs off my Android phone. I have used it numerous times and it's a brilliant bit of kit. I think I paid £7 lol.

There are loads of pc/usb cameras on e-bay and with built in adjustable lighting.
You probably need one with a rigid cable unless you have another means of controlling direction once under the floor. It can be difficult because the lens angle can be a bit narrow, depth of focus not great and trying to control everything from 2 or 3 metres away.
Are you looking for something in particular?

This looks like what you need, with wifi for phone/PC and flexible, rather than soft cable to keep it straight:
