Depending on when you need your camera by, the OVS 560 is the way to go. They won't be available for a couple weeks yet but have some great features that make this the camera to buy. It comes ready for the ice or open water. The best feature is the fact that the camera turn not the cable. No more twisting the cable or setting up a stand over you hole. Very nice!!

I'm definitely looking forward to the OVS560. I've used the OVS500 several times while out fishing and its an excellent underwater camera and the OVS560 will be one step higher. With the new OVS560 you can expect more from your underwater camera and the features are very nice to have. The new lighting system is at the top of the game and you can expect to have better visibility in darker, more stained water.

As far as comparaing the OVS to Aqua Vu or Atlantis, they are all nice cameras and I've used Aqua Vu in the past and they get the job done, but I'm sold on the OVS. The rotational feature was a big seller on the OVS500 (although not a necessity for open water fishing) as well as the neatness at which the unit was set-up, and the new features on the OVS560 put it ahead of the rest in my opinion. Visibility in the water is my number one concern when looking for an underwater camera and I like the OVS.

Good Fishin,

I'll be upgrading to the MarCum OVS 560 as well. I have an Aqua-vu MC2x now and it is a pretty good unit for both open and hard water, but there are a couple things that I don't like. The two things I really don't care for on the Aqua-vu and pretty much all cameras on the market is that rotating the camera head using the cable is a bit slow and can be tough to get on your target. The other complaint is the lighting system. There is too much floating particles in between the camera lens and your object to see much at night typically.

The VS560 has a panning camera head (no more need to rotate using the cable) and it has a new lighting system in which the lights are set above the camera head (meaning less illumination on particles in between the camera lens and the object you are viewing).

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
