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.

Typed aquaview instead of Marcum, thanks for the correction.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
