MINNETONKA, Minn. – The MarCum® 485C underwater viewing system proves that top-of-the-line performance doesn’t have to come with a top-shelf price tag.
With a 7-inch, high-resolution flat-panel LCD screen with 800 x 480 pixel resolution, and an industry-best Sony Super HAD II CCD 1/3-inch Image Sensor 01 Lux Camera, the 485C system provides an underwater viewing performance that, dollar for dollar, is unmatched by any other ice-fishing camera system available today.
Fishing in clear water under bluebird skies? Use the 485C in full-color mode to see the underwater world the way nature intended.
Fishing in stained water or in low-light conditions? Color Kill Technology allows you to switch over to black-and-white mode for an amazingly crisp and clear image.
“When you’ve got dingy green water, going to black and white often produces better depth of field, allowing you to see better,” says MarCum Brand Manager Steve Hanson. “With the 485C, you can switch over to that with ease.”
The 485C will not, however, switch from color to black and white automatically, as will some inferior cameras.
“If you put a camera in a low-light situation with a foot of snow and 24 inches of ice, the last thing you want to have happen is your color camera to go to black and white when its 6 inches under the water,” says MarCum Brand Manager Jon Marshall. And, for those times when the sun dips low on the horizon, the 485C features MarCum’s exclusive Darkwater LED lights to help turn night into day below the hole.
Like all MarCum units, the 485C underwater viewing system is complete and self-contained. Everything needed to find fish is included in MarCum’s signature red soft pack – LCD screen, camera, 50 feet of cord, sun shield, 12-volt, 7-amp rechargeable battery, three-stage battery charger and down-view/stabilizer fin. The MarCum 485C also comes with a one-year warranty.
If you’re looking for an underwater camera with top-of-the-line features and performance – at a price that won’t break the bank – the 485C is the tool you need to unlock your next hot bite!
