MarCom Recon 5
Fishing in the old way where you guess where to toss your line can be a good way to pass time, but if you are interested in catching what you are after and not just having a quiet and uneventful fishing trip, you want to catch what you came for. So how can you be sure that you are in the right spot without scaring off the catch? Why not try an underwater camera that offers to aide in just the right vantage point? That’s where the Marcum 5 can really be a true fisherman’s greatest asset. This camera allows you to search your target area without having to worry that your big catch will notice and abandon their spot before you can reel them in. This small camera can slide into your ice fishing hole and give you an excellent view of the underwater terrain. As most ice fishermen know- you have to know where the fish will go, and this little camera can tell you that without being too intrusive. Find the fishes favorite food, find the fish. It’s simple enough that with only a little help and instruction, a child could learn how to use it to help catch the best fish in an area.
An even greater plus is in the overall size itself. This camera’s viewing area is the size of a smartphone but has clarity that will allow you to see even small details around the camera. With a light hand and slow decent, you can locate the weeds where underwater insects like to gather and set up for fishing right where the best catches are likely to be. The camera has a fifty-foot cord and a ninety-degree field of view. It has several different ways to view your destination for fishing as well from dark water LED to infrared to help you see exactly what you need to see in order to make your best fishing experience yet.
As one of the best in its line, you will be hard pressed to get a better fishing camera than this. All of its features are well contained in this portable device and no matter where you want to fish, you will get a great result when using this product. If you want to know more about all of what the Marcom 5 can do for you and what makes it a camera worth grabbing- for yourself or as a gift for that fisherman in your life- read on below and decide for yourself!
50 ft line
High definition screen for viewing
Several light/color/sharpness settings
Not as large of a screen as others
Camera a little hard to control at first
The screen is easy to view, but it is best seen when not in direct sunlight, so it is great for short or long-range fishing trips onto the ice in early evening or morning runs. Since it also comes with its own case, you do not have to worry that pushing it into a pocket will damage the screen either, it is protected and can even be set down on surfaces like ice without fear of it getting water in it, the case will keep the base from collecting any moisture from the surface of the ice.
Keep the camera well away from areas where it could get snagged on weeds, rocks or branches, however. Intentionally placing the camera in areas where you know the camera or it’s a cord to the viewing screen may be caught, snagged or snapped will void the warranty. As with anything you purchase, seek to protect your merchandise. Durability does not mean testing how much it can take- it only means that it was built to the best quality possible for its type. Keep this in mind, and not only will you find your camera lasts out of its own ability, but that if it does have issues later, you can get it fixed or replaced through its warranty, which makes it an even more perfect choice.
