I finally got a camera yesterday. I have been wanting one for 3 years now, and finally got one at an affordable price. I was in Scheels at River Hills in Mankato and they had refurbished ones marked down from $199.99 to $99.99, plus they honored my $20 off coupon Cabelas sends out. A camera for $79.99- can't beat that!!

Yeah definetly a steal of a deal. Get ur self a cheap tripod and stopper or u will have fun trying to get the camera to stay put.

Good luck with the new camera.

I got the Nature Vision tripod, the one that will sprawl flat across the hole, or set as a regular tripod- $14.99

I had no luck with these what so ever. The base broke on my the same day I got it. Received a replacement and the next day the camera does not work.

I thought it was a steal to.. but I guess it wasnt

The ice tripods are nice for camera control BUT keep a close eye on your rubber stopper when not in use. They're easy to lose - mine went down the hole today while setting up my camera...

I am gonna noodle with a way to drill a hole into that rubber stop and attaching a leader or fishing line to it and to the tripod itself so that doesn't happen.

any thoughts on getting the refurbished ones? They say that you cannot return them to the store, does aqua view offer a warrenty on these or is it a buy at your own risk type thing? Thinking of getting one they still have a couple left in kato...
