Okay, we all know what a Fish Finder is and how it works, and hardly ever does it come with a marine grade underwater camera. Well, some do, but I honestly think all fish finders should come with a camera; makes the activity that much for fun and engaging, right?
Thank your lucky stars because today I will be reviewing to you one such Fish Finder that comes with a camera, the Fish Finder camera from Wosports. But will the camera really make any difference in output at the end of the day? Or is it just another fancy gadget gimmick? Let’s investigate!
Wosports Fish Finder Camera
Let’s start by taking a look on to the most important component of the kit, the camera.
The Wosports Fish Finder camera lets you treat the underwater from a fish’s eyes, literally. This camera has been specially designed to give you the best view underwater at deep ranges, both during the day and at night. The camera is so durable and robust that you can even use it for ice fishing and enjoy the same amazing results
The camera uses a COMS sensor of 2 megapixels and a 140 degree wide angle lens and shoots at 720 pixels per inch (ppi). It has a minimum luminance of 1 LUX underwater. No simulation, no nonsense.
You can see the underwater world, live! The camera captures real-time videos so you will be getting some pretty up-close and personal viewing of the underwater. And given that the cable of the camera is 30 m long, you get it pretty deep for some exciting fish watching!
The screen on the monitor is a generous 4.3 inch so that you never have to squint your eyes for viewing. The display is bright, vivid and crisp; just plug the camera cable into the monitor and you are ready to catch some fish! You have 4 buttons, of navigation and menu, on the bottom of the screen.
The monitor is also weather resistant to damages like fog build-up, moisture, wind, etc for those challenging fishing trips where mother nature can get a little too crazy. The monitor also has a nice sunshade over it to prevent visual distortion from rain drops and sun glares. Very thoughtful, indeed.
One of the saddest fishing scenarios: you are happy using your Fish Finder and amidst, the battery runs out. And with that ends all your dreams of the bass you were eyeing. The end.
Well, the Wosports Fish Finder camera won’t be giving you any such nightmares. It uses 2 lithium ion batteries, each 2000 mAH, to work for a good 6 hours at a time. And the great thing is the company is generous towards its customers: they provide one extra set (2 batteries) so in total you have a whopping 12 hours working time on your hands! If one runs out, use the other while the other charges. Very efficient.
