A highly useful tool for fishing and underwater exploration, the AV 715c Color Underwater Video Camera with 7" LCD Monitor from Aqua-Vu allows you to study marine life and environments at a maximum depth of 50'. Stay dry topside in your boat while using the monitor to view what the camera sees below the surface. This system is ideal for saltwater, freshwater, and ice fishing, but may also be used for various other applications, such as explorations and inspections.
The camera features a color CMOS image sensor for streaming live video feed to the monitor, which is connected via the supplied 50' cable. Additionally, the camera is equipped with 6 LED lights to enhance visibility in dark conditions, and offers a wide 92° angle of view for ample coverage. The extremely compact form factor and a shape resembling that of a fish help you to avoid spooking the sea life you're viewing.
Power to the underwater viewing system is provided by the internal, rechargeable, 12V, sealed lead acid battery, which fits securely inside the monitor base, or by an optional external battery. As an added bonus, a padded, weatherproof case is included so you can store and transport the system with ease.
