Marcum VS 560 Underwater Camera **SOLD**

5 posts in this topic

Hey Guys! I'm selling my camera! Its a Marcum VS 560 Underwater Camera. I've had it for a year and have only used it a few times. Its absolutely awesome, the Cadillac of underwater cameras.

I'm asking $450 as these sell new for $600.

Here's what the Marcum website says about the camera-

"Camera rotates in underwater housing providing 360 degree viewing area. Rotation can be controlled by manual operation of keypad or choice of three different auto pan speeds. A wireless remote controls camera rotation, auto pan speeds, and lighting. VS 560 includes on screen displays for reporting depth, direction, water temperature, and battery status. Lighting system incorporates “Darkwater Technology” eliminating majority of particulate reflection therefore increasing viewing clarity and distance. Includes padded denier soft pack, collapsible viewing shroud, battery, DC charger, and additional weight for use in open water. Available in 60 feet cable length."

The camera is in awesome shape and perfect working order, complete with owner's manual, battery & battery charger, and wireless remote control.

I can ship the camera to you but will add actual shipping charges via USPS onto the total. Insurance or stuff like that will be up to you. I also live in Plymouth and the camera can be picked up or may meet you in the western metro. I'm flexible.

Any questions, e-mail me at my address below.

Guess nobody is looking for THE best underwater camera on the market at a great price??

I am willing to drop the price to $400.

Here's a photo of the remote control that is included with the camera. I just put a new battery in the remote and it works sweet! Control auto panning speeds, manually control the camera left & right, turn the camera light on & off directly from the remote!

Hanson,

I am very interested in the camera. I have a few questions for you. How big is the camera head? How do you center the camera in the ice hole? Does it come with a ice arm? Does the camera make noise when it rotates?

Hey! Those are some good questions!

How big is the camera head?

Without having the camera head in hand, I would say it is approx. 3-1/2 to 4" in diameter, and then the "fin" adds a little to the one side. It fits nicely down an 8" hole. I've never tried it down a 6" hole but it should fit.

Does it come with an ice arm?

Nope. The great thing about the 560 is all the rotation is done inside of the camera housing. You don't need the little tripod like the old Marcum cameras had to enable the camera & cord totate.

This camera also downviews by clipping the cord in the clip on the bottom of the camera housing. This was the primary way I used it so you can fish and downview with your camera in the same hole. Sometimes the fish would tangle around the camera cord but not too big a deal.

Does the camera make noise when it rotates?

None. Its silent.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
