I want to record what I see on my Underwater Camera to a VHS tape!

7 posts in this topic

When ever I use my Aqua-View I get lots of action on the camera. Differnt species of fish and nice hits. I have heard of people recording images off the Aqua-View. Cabelas said to buy a cord that hooks into your video camera. What do you guys think?

I took my VCR and hooked it up to my Aqua-Vu the last time I went out on Medicine Lake. Its actually really easy to do if you have the equipment. I had a little under 2 hours of footage on my video. I gave a copy to someone on this forum. He thought is was neat. Here are some pics I got from the video: http://www.imagestation.com/album/pictures.html?show_all=1&start=1&id=4288662171

There is no certain cord you need. I use the same cord you run from you're VCR to you're TV. This is my set up: I hooked up an inverter to my back battery. Plugged the VCR into the inverter. Hooked up the video line from the Aqua-Vu to the Video input on the VCR. Set the channel the L (short for line). Put in a tape. Turned on the Aqua-Vu. Hit record. There ya go.

VCR would be the best option, and the above instructions will get you hooked up. The other option is to get a video camera that has video input jacks on it -- very hard to find! Some of the OLD cameras that sat on your shoulder and held a full size tape would allow you to do this, this would give you a "portable" option, both units would have their own batteries and no extra pieces would be needed.

Fun to play with, but the more electronics you bring out to the water, the better chance of getting something wet, that shouldn't be.

Good Luck!

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
