Go Pro advice needed
« on: Oct 04, 2022, 08:24 PM »
Looking to get some live action fish paparazzi footage w/ a wireless go pro setup. Looked through what's available & not seeing anything that stands out from da rest. Anyone own/use one? Difference between em'  +/- over recording w/ Eyoyo setup.?

Yes underwater. Looking to film pike attacking da dekes. Probably within 4'., clarity on Eyoyo in murky water is around 3' depending on sun. Looking for a clearer image.

3’ in murky water sounds better than most cameras out there, including the big boys. Honestly, there’s only so much a camera can do when presented with low light, cloudy/murky water. You know, like ice fishing. A camera relies on light to produce an image. That’s why a lot of underwater cameras have that “night” mode that makes everything monochrome. In monochrome, the camera can adjust contrast to produce a much more pronounced image compared to the color image when in those lowlight/murky conditions.

I can also understand wanting to minimize the setup by going wireless but like matzilla pointed out, the wireless just isn’t going to work underwater. Now, you could still use a GoPro but you’d have to rig up a watertight hardwired setup. There just isn’t a way around that as consumer technology currently stands.

Certain cameras do perform better for these conditions but there is only so much a camera, even ones costing thousands, can do when the light just isn’t there.

Thanks for the input. One issue i have is the 7" Eyoyo setup doesn't record to SD , i made a nice mount out of a hockey puck tipup & can deal w/ cords. I need to be able to start/stop record on command to save battery life while not bringing a laptop out on da ice.

Did you try the newer AHD version? It should have better video footage!
