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.

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though.
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
