Marcum VS250 Clarity Issue

7 posts in this topic

When comparing my VS250 side by side to a buddy's Aqua Vu Scout (the one on sale last year for $125 after rebate) the Aqua Vu has much better video quality. From everything I've read on here I think the Marcum should be just as good so I'm thinking I have something wrong with mine. I've tried both video inputs in the monitor and I've tried a different battery in case mine had gone bad but it doesn't improve. I don't really notice it when playing with it at home but I do have troubles seeing clearly when it's in the water.

Any ideas? I'd hate to have to send it in and I don't even know what could be wrong but I don't feel it's working as it should. Has anyone compared the cameras side by side?

Thanks.

Matt

Is it out of focus once in the water? Darker picture? Out of water is a good picture but in the water it's not. You see any water inside the camera? Kind of hard to explain in writing but any extra info would help.

It is kind of hard to explain. It isn't necessarily worse in the water, it more seems like the water makes the clarity issue stand out more if that makes sense. I don't think the issue is with the water.

I was hoping to see if there was something I could do without sending it in and I wanted to verify that it should look better. It looks like I'll just have to call them and probably send it in.

You may not have to send it in at all, perhaps there is something they can help you determine over the phone. Give them a call.

I know of at least one fishing show series that utilizes the VS250 (among other cameras) to do film-work, so I'm guessing that something isn't quite right. It's a great camera.

True.

Even if I do send it in, at least it's not my flasher. I can fish without my camera but it's a lot harder fishing without my flasher.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
