Minneapolis, MN – Sounds like a job for Naval submarines and those brave members of the Coast Guard. But for ice anglers, underwater surveillance can appear just as important as detecting torpedoes and finding Atlantis. In this case, the torpedoes are big fish, and Atlantis looks more like the perfect weedbed.
Underwater video cameras have become one of the most valuable fish finding tools in ice fishing. And MarCum Technologies offers the most fisherman-friendly systems available—including premium SONY® camera optics and vividly clear LCD monitors featuring Solar-Intelligent® Technology. It’s like having an HDTV, right on the ice.
Now, to further enhance the angler’s ability to “spy” on the aquatic world, MarCum has enriched each of its elite-grade camera systems, by including a free Auto Camera Panner ($50 value) in the box. This valuable underwater viewing aid is also sold separately, and will enhance any underwater camera on the market.
The Auto Camera Panner is a highly portable, remote-controlled device that makes rotating an underwater camera as easy as pushing a button.
Providing a full panoramic underwater view, the Panner features an advanced compact motor that locks onto the camera cable at any position or depth, revolving the camera head a full 360-degrees. This valuable device sports a main shaft/handle, and two additional “ice arms” that fold out like a fan for support over an ice hole (works for holes up to 10-inches in diameter). When not in use, the ice arms fold back down, making the unit small enough to stow inside a large coat pocket or tackle box.
To rotate the camera, the angler simply presses the right or left arrow keys on the miniature camera controller. The controller includes 10-feet of cable to allow for remote operation inside a shelter or on the ice. Two “C” cell batteries operate the Auto Camera Panner continuously for up to 8 hours. And the device is compatible with any underwater cameras brand on the market.
“MarCum’s new Auto Camera Panning device is the perfect solution for scanning vast areas beneath the ice,” says MarCum Pro-Staff Tony Roach. “Attached to my MarCum, the Panner lets me see cover, structure, and fish that might be approaching from any direction. It’s a huge aid for finding fish, as well as determining which way they’re moving. And I really like that the Camera Panner fits easily into a bucket or even my coat pocket. If you use an underwater camera, owning a MarCum Auto Camera Panner is a no-brainer.” Luckily, it also comes free with the purchase of any MarCum Underwater Camera.
