Marcum V825c

5 posts in this topic

Any one using this new underwater camera? How does it rate with the Aqua-Vu Explorer 7?

Quite a price difference. I have one of the old Aqua-Vu with the 4" screen, and am thinking of upgrading. Need a little advice on this one, as I was very disappointed when I purchased the one that I have now.

Any help is appreciated.

The VS825C was on the market last year, as well as the VS820 (non-color) version.

The color works great in bright, clear water, where there is enough light to actually see the colors. If the water isn't clear or it's dark out (ie. evening) you won't get the color to come through to the monitor.

The sony camera and the monitor on the Marcum VS825C and VS820 are both top-of-the-line and work great. Really good picture. Like with any camera, the better the water clarity the better the viewing.

PJ is pretty much perfect with his answer. If I were in a buying mood right now. I think the best out there is the 820.. But the Explo 7 is a very good unit as well.

Harry,

I used the VS825C last season and am using the VS820 this year. Both units are the same except the camera. The VS820 features both IR lights and LED lights (VS825C only has LED lights)and I believe the VS820 needs less light in order to get a good picture. I'm really happy wth the VS820 so far. I used the extra money saved and went with a Mo-Pod to turn the camera, too.

I have the same set up as Dave, I use the VS820 with the Mo-Pod. It works well and I am very happy with it.

I have not seen a VS825C in the field but I don't think you would be disappoitned with either.
