ovs camera parts

8 posts in this topic

ok i am going to try and explain this. i lost the part that makes the bridge over the hole for ice fishing to hold the camera in place. the long piece bridge not the part that hooks on the cord. i have called ovs two times to have them send me one but they sent me the piece that hooks on the line both times. not saying anything bad about ovs service (in fact they were more than helpful to send it to me and easy to get ahold of) it just seems that i am having a problem explaining what it is that i need. does anyone know if i can get this piece from a store anywhere? or does anyone know what i would call that part so they understand me? do you understand what i am asking for? still have plenty of time till needed on ice but sure is nice to have out there - oh ya if anyone was wondering, yes it did get knocked down the hole - mille lacs, cove bay, peach fishing, 7ft, could see it sitting on bottom but for the life of me could not snag it to get it back.

It's called an Ice Arm. You'll have to specify if you have the 400 or the 500. Hope this helps.

Nature Vision and Aqua View underwater camera systems makes a very handy tri-pod for suspending the cable/camera in the hole. It holds tight and is easy to work from a sitting or standing position. MSRP $16.50

If you want to see something really "New" & Cool for ice season 2003-4, check out the new remote control Aqua View MO-POD system.

The Aqua View MO-POD has a wireless remote control with a 100-foot range allowing the Motorized Ice Pod (positioned over the fishing hole and gripping the camera cable) to rotate the camera without cable twist.

Aqua-Vu's 92-degree camera angle, combined with the MO-POD's 340-degree rotation, provides continuous 360-degree viewing. And it’s hands-free......preety cool huh.

The small remote control clips to jacket or ice rod. MO-POD runs off eight AA batteries or your Aqua-Vu’s 12-volt battery.
MSRP $110.00

They have a couple of other new surprise's in store for Ice Season 2004. A new video image capture system, the VMM, (Video Memory Module) will be available in January, that will be very interesting.

There are definitely some nice new products out there this year. Can't wait for the shows so I can check them out. I've been hearing a lot about the new Aqua-Vu Ice Pro, I'm anxious to see how it is. I've been using the OVS 500 and I must say it is a great camera, helps catch a lot of fish. Too many choices, seems like things are just getting better and better. Ice fishing has come a long way in the last several years and I imagine its only the beginning. smile.gif Sure makes fishing fun.

Good Fishin,
Matt

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC.
