Which underwater camera would you get?

6 posts in this topic

I have had my Aquaview Scout for 3 years now, and it is time to upgrade. I am debating which route to go. I am debating hard between a VS460 and a VS820. From what I read the 820 is very clear with the LCD screen and newer camera technology. But I really like the option of rotating the camera around with the touch of a button in the 460. I will mainly be using in my permanent house with multiple holes. I guess I am wondering if there are folks out there that have used both, cause I really want to know if the VS820 is that much clearer?

I got the ok from my better half to sell the scout and pick one of these 2 up, I just need to figure out how much the scout is worth and which of the new cameras I want.

Thanks!

Anyone have any thoughts? I really like the ability to rotate the camera in the permanent house with the 460/560. But how much better is the picture with the 820/825? I will have to figure out if it is worth it to get the rotating part. But if the newer ones blow away the older ones picture, than I might go with that.

Thanks.

I heard the 360 degree rotating cameras will be discontinued soon since nature vision bought Marcum. If you want a camera like that you better hurry up and buy one. A romote rotatable camera was always a good idea in my book. I have an AV Scout2 camera because I didn't want to spend a lot of $$$ and the Marcum camera I tried to buy didn't work out of the box so I took it back and got the AV cam. For icefishing I usually downview and look at my lure.

dkf, Nature Vision has always owened Aqua View. They just purchase MarCum.

Typed aquaview instead of Marcum, thanks for the correction.

    • In short, "the main reason politicians are deathly afraid of economic downturns:,,,
    • Well, the dismount is the part that everyone remembers, and will make or break the entire routine. 
    • The overwhelming majority of that money that they are making is speculative and has no tangible value such as banking, insurance,real estate etc and that value can vaporize very quickly. When the debt reaches the breaking point there are going to be a lot of urbanites figuring out that corn and potatoes don't grow on asphalt or concrete. We will see then where the value is.  
    • Well, he's right,you know? Oh yeah, those two women just made the list. 
    • There was not much mentioned about the debt this cycle because both side's economic policy plans called for no change in course. So am curious......now that Palin and Coulter are saying the same thing "we" are about Trump.....does that mean they are mad and crying liberal tears as well? Not so ironically, it sure is looking like Billghazi and D2E are the actual libtards in the room.  
    • Should be cold enough the next few days to do that.
    • I like to let hang for two weeks if the weather is cold.
    • This morning, while in the garage feeding my dog, I saw a mouse running along the wall and behind the tool bench. Thirty seconds later, "SNAP!" There it was. A dark mouse in it's prime pelt giving the last few kicks in the trap before expiring.   Do you guys like your mouse meat fresh or do you allow it to hang a few days like you would a deer?
    • So in Minnesota's case then, wouldn't it make more sense for the metro area to return control of the resources and ownership of public lands in the northern part of the state to the northern counties so they wouldn't be such a burden on the metro area?   Or is it really more about the power than the money?
    • That's because you still have many that are still fighting the 2016 election cycle and/or are upset because their gal lost the election and can't seem to be able to recover from that fact.  It's over. Trump will now be the president. So going forward, he is now going to have to earn my vote come 2020. And it will be based 100% on what I see and my own evaluation of his performance in the next 4 years. Not what the NYT's says about him or his critics. For now, it's all I can do   She's 100% right. Especially her comment regarding the debt. Little was mentioned regarding our debt this election cycle. Her quote; “When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent,” she asserted.   Can't be stated enough. This is but one small example of how government can end up creating market distortions
