1. How far can I see?
About 3.3 feet. 2 feet of visibility is sufficient for underwater viewing in very clear water.
2. When do I use the lights?
The lights in the camera are designed for use in low-light conditions. Turn the lights on for enhanced visibility in low light conditions.
3. How do I steer the camera?
Set up camera in Horizontal-viewing way, and then hold camera AV cable and troll it in a slow speed (less than 2 mph). The camera will face in the boat’s direction of travel. If you are facing and moving forward, so will the camera.
4. How fast can I troll with my camera?
It depends on depth, and also on the length of cable you have out. Generally, for optimal viewing, we recommend going less than 2 miles per hour. The deeper you go, with more cable out, the more water resistance there will be from camera. So that requires slower travel for good viewing.
5. If the camera becomes hung up, what to do?
If the camera becomes hung up, back up from the direction you were traveling from and slowly try to back the camera out of the snag. DO NOT pull directly upward with force unless all other avenues have been pursued.
6. Can I use this camera system in saltwater?
Yes. All cameras are saltwater-rated,constructed with stainless steel hardware and materials that are impervious to corrosion. We recommend rinsing salt water off camera using clean water and a soft cloth after every use.
7. Will my unit work in cold weather conditions?
Cameras are designed to operate at temperatures ranging from -10 to 120 degrees F. But its battery life might decrease in cold conditions.
8. How wide is the camera lens view angle?
Camera lens has a viewing angle of 92 degrees. At 4-1/2 feet in front of the camera you can view an image approximately 6 feet wide.
