CHASING GM100 Reviews

Low quality, no support - not worth your money.

By Mikhail

Date: 2022-01-15

From the box there was dust and dirt between protective glass and camera (not light, not moderate but heavy). All footage was spoiled. Absolutely all. Always. Not possible to correct at postproduction. Impossible to do DIY repairs as pressure tight and requires special tools. Covid pandemic prevented me from using the drone and I found out about the defect too late. When the warranty period expired. I anyhow inquired B&H and B&H reverted with pls inquire the manufacturer and I did so.. many times but the manufacturer wants me taking a flying luck while listening to Enjoy the silence by Depeche Mode. No reply. Wasted money. And not a charity, alas.

I received my Gladius mini from Bhphoto very promptly. It performs very well and is simple to operate. Although the visibility in my channel behind my home is only about two feet, the app gives alot of info as to what the ROV is doing. The Gladius Mini Will be amazing in open water in the Gulf of Mexico, or on our yearly Bahamas trip. I highly recommend the Gladius Mini underwater ROV and purchasing from BHphoto was quick and professional. T.W.

I bought this ROV fm BH more than 6 months ago and just recently used it. Having done that I found out that there is a small particle of dust between the safe glass and a camera lenses. This small dust spot spoils a picture. Do I have a guarantee? What should I do to fix this?

Hi, as you are the expert in this field Iwant to get an underwater drone to explore the marine environment for my students , educational purposes and reserach down to 100m. Which one should I go for. Tarek
Asked by: Tarek
The Geneinno Titan Underwater ROV (492' Depth Rating) is a good ROV for sending images and video to the surface. Here is the link for the ROV with a 150 meter tether. This will allow you to use it at 100 meters. https://bhpho.to/2B757aT

The base station has HDMI. Can you get a live feed from the HDMI to run into a capture card or video switcher? Is there an underwater rov that can?
Asked by: Zack
Hi, yes the HDMI port is a live feed. There is also the option to live stream from the app on a mobile device. Thank you for shopping at B&H!

How long is a 328' tether? Like... How deep/far away does this size tether allow it to go?
Asked by: Delena
There are variables. How far across the base station is from the Rov and then how far down, will give you the total. The cable is 328. So, it cannot be more than that length.

does it require special handling to be used in saltwater? there is a panel on the bottom that says Freshwater?

That refers to the buoyancy compensation that is used. In salt water you must add more ballast to maintain neutral buoyancy. Other than that there is no special handling requirement
