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

IS there a certain cord that you need to be able to record off of the aqua view?

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!

    • That was obviously his Republican side...
    • lambjm - keep at it. If you do, you stand a great chance of fishing for possibly decades to come.    Inspirational to me, and hopefully others, is our 85 year old neighbor in Hovland who finished up logging our land this past spring. He logs in a one man operation every day, except Sundays, and a nice day every now and again to fish with his wife.    He has been logging continually for 66 years.   Like clockwork he gets to the landing everyday by 8:30, takes a 15 min break at 10:30, a half hour lunch break at 12, and a 15 min break at 3 before quitting at 4:30. A few days last winter I was out on the land making firewood and clearing trails, and could barely keep up with his schedule. He plans to keep at it as long as he is able.    My wife and I saw him last winter, as we rounded the corner of our road, standing atop a 10' pile of aspen logs with a cant hook or axe in one hand, waving with the other. He appeared as a man less than half his age in terms of agility and stature.   Genetics are a key, but staying interested and active in an outdoor activity is very important to a long and healthy life.     
    • That is because he was fooled into believing in trickle down economics and the idea that cutting taxes in and of itself would solve the budget problem.   Some are still fooled today.
    • Starve the beast, only the beast got stuff on credit.   Reagan didn't seem to be concerned too much about debt.
    • We already know Uncle Bill's response though:  
    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 215 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning. 
    • Well, you were never very good at comprehension so your reply doesn't come as a surprise. 
    • Neither one is real big on massive debt and free govt. bennies, I'll give you that.   Just thought I would mention Reagan's libertarianism, since D2E brought it up..
    • Well, the Republicans have JV so I believe that is check mate for our side.
