Marcum Recon 5 Underwater Camera Viewing System Product Review

This pocket-sized underwater viewing system will allow you to observe the life of fish with great clarity.

This device will run for 6 hours before dying, so be mindful of charging the lithium battery before you travel with this camera. If you’re low on charge, you’ll be able to see the status of the battery on the screen.

The length of the camera cable is 50 feet, meaning you can drop it a huge distance to see the deepest of the deep.

You can adjust the display to your preference. If it’s too dark, then just turn up the brightness! If you’re only seeing outlines, then decrease the contract. You have control over how you see the deep.

For the darker waters, you can turn on the infrared lighting and the dark water LED for better images.

The screen itself is perfectly pocket-sized – about the size of a smartphone, the screen measures 5 inches.

Included in your purchase is:

  • Soft pack and camera sack
  • 110V USB charger and cable
