Atlantis Cameras

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I hope this hasn't been discussed already, but with all the posts, it may have. Anyway, I am strongly considering an underwater camera purchase and have been told the Atlantis brand cameras are supposed to so awesome. Has anyone seen or used one before...pros and cons vs other brands. They say the entry level model is blowing out at Cabelas. Thanks for your replys!

I bought mine 2 or 3 years ago. It works awesome on certain lakes. As far as picture it is as good as the aqua view if not better. The concern I have with them is durability. I have taken good care of it, don't beat on it or anything. It comes in a very protected water tight case with lots of padding. But, I have had to fix it every year. This year, the dealer said we needed a new monitor. $150. Last year I can't remember the problem but it was about $50. I don't know if I got a lemon or if they are just made cheaply.

I purchased the mini atlantis a year or so and returned the thing within weeks of initial purchase. Maybe Atlantis has changed a few things since then; with mine, i could barely see out 5 feet in choice conditions.

Hmmmm, I am glad I sent this post, not very good repoerts so far. Again, not to beat a dead horse, but what in your opinion is the "best for the money"..Aquaview?? It would be nice to keep it under $400.00. Thanks again!

I just bought an atlantis drop cam and have used it a couple times. It uses the exact same camera as the aqua vu ice pro and costs 80 bucks less. I have only used it twice and so far I love it.

Hey If you want a really good camera really cheap, go check out Cabela's Bargain Cave! You can get some really good deals on some really nice stuff.

At the Cabelas in Mitchell, SD me and my dad were driving by and we just stopped their to look in the bargain cave and we found a Aqua-Vu MC2X w/120' cable for $289! That was Cheap! That very same camera retails for $449.99 and we also got the soft case, weights, battery, charger, and the fin with it!
The camera works great I love it. It works great for night viewing and even during the day. I just have one tip, thats keep it out of the prop on the boat tongue.gif . Even tho that cable is really really tuff it still might put a nick on it (I know from experience grin.gif ) .

Overall that was a sweet camera for a great price. I am very pleased with it.

Fish ON!

A buddy of mine bought one a few years back.

They are nice, but his is not very durable either. He has had to take the camera apart 3 different times to "dry" it out. It keeps leaking.

Now, the thing is so wrapped up in tape and silicone sealant, that it looks rediculous.

He won't buy another one and after what I seen of his problems, I wouldn't buy one either........

Also, the "night" vision sucks.........

Aqua View is the best I've worked with yet.

    • Have to agree great game looked real good definitely more aggressive time will tell.
    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
    • Great showing by the team last night! It was exciting to see the effort level way up and the new guys seem to plug into their roles well. Much more excited for the rest of the season!
