The yellow AquaLens from Aquabotix is a compact, portable, easy-to-use underwater viewing system with a color camera, live video feed, LED lights, and a 25' cable connecting it to the supplied topside box. It also includes a 3.5" topside color LCD monitor with 320 x 240 resolution, which connects to the topside box through a separate 6' cable that's also supplied. In under 30 sec, the spherical device, made of an ABS plastic body and an acrylic dome lens port, is ready for submersion to a maximum depth of 50'--and it does not require anyone to enter the water.

Simply use virtually any boat hook or another guide pole with the supplied adapter for pole attachment to position the device from a dry topside location. Then, watch the streaming video on the monitor, which can easily be worn and operated on your forearm using the arm band and swivel mount, or on your belt. Keep in mind that though the AquaLens is waterproof, the LCD screen and topside box are not.

Perform inspections of the underwater parts of your boat, including the anchor, rudder, hull, bottom, and propellers. You can also use the AquaLens to check water conditions and execute searches or to enjoy a closer look at undersea life and environments--all while staying dry and safe above the surface. The camera offers a 1/3" CMOS image sensor and 640 x 480 resolution, and its lens provides a wide angle of view of 92°. The dome port for the lens counteracts the decrease in coverage that occurs underwater by restoring a wider angle of view. The AquaLens also features anti-fogging technology for improved visibility.

Using the optional MyGica iGrabber or a similar accessory, you can record the live video feed from the AquaLens. The iGrabber connects to the topside box and offers simple push buttons that allow you to start and stop recording. At the other end is a USB plug for connection to your computer, where you can upload your captured videos. The AquaLens runs on 8 AA batteries, which are available separately, or on continuous topside power as an alternative, using the optional AC power adapter.

Applications
Perform inspections of the underwater parts of your boat, including the anchor, rudder, hull, bottom and propellers. You can also use the AquaLens to check water conditions and execute searches, or to enjoy a closer look at undersea life and environments--all while staying dry and safe above the surface. Simply use virtually any boat hook or another guide pole with the supplied adapter for pole attachment to position the device from a dry topside location. Then, watch the streaming video on the monitor.
Depth Rating
Can be submerged safely to a maximum depth of 50'.
Live Video
Color camera with 1/3" CMOS image sensor and 640 x 480p resolution provides live video feed to water's surface via the supplied 25' cable, which connects to the topside box. Alternate configurations that include a 25', 50' or 75' cable instead, offering an increased operational range, are available separately. The box is then connected to the color LCD monitor using a separate 6' cable that's also supplied. The camera's lens provides a wide angle of view of 92°, and the dome port counteracts the decrease in coverage that occurs underwater by restoring a wider angle of view. The AquaLens also features anti-fogging technology for improved visibility.
Power
Runs on 8 AA batteries, which are available separately. Battery run time ranges from approx. 6.0-8.0 hr with LEDs off or 4.0-6.0 hr with LEDs on. As an alternative to batteries, you can use continuous topside power via the optional AC power adapter, which runs on 100-240VAC and provides 12VDC power to the topside box and, in turn, the AquaLens itself. No additional cable is required, as the included cable that connects the AquaLens to the topside box transfers the continuous power.
Topside Box
Used to power the AquaLens and its LED lights on and off. It is not waterproof, so be sure to use it only in a dry location.
LCD Monitor
Includes a 3.5" topside color LCD monitor with 320 x 240 resolution. It can easily be worn and operated on your forearm using the arm band with touch-fastener attachment and swivel mount, or on your belt. Also supplied as an alternative attachment method is a sticker mount, which also uses the swivel mount but enables you to mount the monitor to a variety of surfaces. The LCD is not waterproof.
Optional Recording
Using the optional MyGica iGrabber or a similar accessory, you can record the live video feed from the AquaLens. The iGrabber connects to the topside box and offers simple push buttons that allow you to start and stop recording. At the other end is a USB plug for connection to your computer, where you can upload your captured videos.
