Endoscope - is it useful for soundpost setting?

Probably not much. A real key for setting sound posts is having good lighting inside the instrument (like Luthier Lights). It’s also difficult to keep proper orientation with the endoscope..

I have an endoscope, but still use a dental-type mirror and a bright interior LED light (from Doug above) for fitting soundposts.

Yup. Doug's Luthier Light changed the game for me. Thanks Doug!

The endoscope comes in handy if you’re trying to look inside for  something like a signature or construction feature that’s not easily visible with a mirror. As others said, a dental mirror gives you all the visibility you need for a soundpost, as you can see all the way around at the top and bottom of the post.
