I picked up an OVS 560 last week at Bass Pro Shops in Fridely. I had my name on a list there since September and they called me last Tuesday. I picked it up that day after I got off work.

I've tried it a couple times and it works great! I put it in nineteen feet of water off the dock in the NE corner of Lake Calhoun an hour before sunset and got a beautiful picture, without the lights on, but didn't see anything down there. I also hung it off the side of the boat while I was duck hunting, up north, last weekend. At 4:30 in the morning it looked like daylight (within the lights range of illumination) when I turned on the lights. I only saw a perch and a bunch of minnows.

The rotating camera is really a nice feature. It will also auto-pan at three differnt speeds.

I'm not certain about the illumination range. I've never used one of these things before so I have nothing to reference it by. I don't think ten feet would be too far out of line. Something like five to ten feet seems about right. Someone with a better eye and more knowledge, perhaps, can give a more certain answer.
