Cabelas panning camera

7 posts in this topic

Anybody used the panning camera sold by Cabelas?

It looks like it's probably made by Marcum. Did Marcum have issues with the panning cameras last year or is that just rumors?

Any info appreciated.

I have a VS560 that is a few years old and it still pans and functions the same as the day I bought it. I'm not sure about the panning camera's they offer.

Thanks for setting the record straight on that Deitz. Much appreciated.

So the question looms about the quality I guess. I know Cabelas will stand behind their products. Has anyone used this camera yet?

You sure they aren't made by Marcum? Last year I bought one of the other Cabela's cameras...The panning cam is new this year) and on my fisrt time out with it I dropped the weight down the hole while playing with adjusting it for downviewing....stopped by Cabela's on my way home to see if I caould get a replacement weight and they had me call Marcum directly....Marcum shipped my TWO new weights that arrived the next day...NO CHARGE. The cases and everything about the new panning cameras look just like the other advanced angler camaeras they sell so I have a hard time beliving that they aren't made by Marcum when the others clearly were/are....

That may be true stumper.. but I know MarCums hands are not in it. The first year Cabelas came out with an underwater camera, MarCum did make it for them.. It was only a 1 year deal, Cabelas pretty much made a copy of it and made it for them selves after that.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
