*Too Cool!*

111025_sm.jpg

Taking in the details. Getting a closer look. Exploring nature beyond what is readily available to the naked eye. All excellent reasons for owning a pair of Bushnell® binoculars. But imagine being able to save those images to share with friends and family.

Introducing the Image View™ Digital Binoculars from Bushnell. A remarkable marriage of a powerful, long-range binocular and a compact, .35 megapixel digital camera. The applications are endless. This is the perfect choice for sports fans, outdoor enthusiasts and adventure travelers who want to simultaneously view and record the action. Compact enough to slip into a pocket, yet packed with powerful performance features like 10x magnification (8x camera magnification) and internal memory holds 80 pictures at high resolution and 300 pictures at low resolution. The new Image View is affordably priced - making it the perfect gift for friends (DAD) or family.

The "Instant Replay"
High Performance Digital Binocular.

Beyond cool!

Bushnell's new Instant Replay™ binocular is a serious, high performance digital binocular with a dual personality.

True to its name, the Instant Replay can record a 30 second continuous video loop, allowing you to capture and review sports action on the LCD screen right after it happens.

Or, if you prefer still images, you can take digital photos with 2 megapixel resolution, enough to make enlargements you'll want to frame. This is essential gear for team coaches and scouts, birders and wildlife observers, big game hunters and anyone who enjoys recording high-quality photographs or movies.

With 16 megs of internal memory, removable compact flash storage, and the included software, you can easily view, download, edit and keep your favorite movie clips or stills.

Powerful, easy-to-use and loaded with advanced features, the Bushnell® Instant Replay Binocular sets a new standard of excellence in image-capturing digital binoculars.

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
