  • CASWELL Underwater Camera

    Are these cameras still available?

    Do they have a good resolution?

    Where can you get them from?

  • #2
    First off, a bit of housekeeping: Be sure you note the difference between Sub-Driver.com and Caswell Plating. Caswell is now entirely separated from subs and handles completely different products. Sub-Driver.com transferred ownership to the Nautilus Drydocks back in November and is now operating as the Nautilus Drydocks.

    I assume you're referring to the waterproof Oregon Scientific cameras that were sold years ago. Those are no longer being offered, however there are a whole host of new camera options that you can get cheaply and easily through companies like Amazon. I recently grabbed this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Great value for $40!
    • With a 170 degree field of view, record videos in outstanding 1080p and 720p, and record audio with a built-in high quality microphone. Capture 14PM still, burst-shot, and time lapse images.
    • The iON Air Pro Camera is extremely durable and waterproof WITHOUT a case up to 10 meters/30 feet.
    • Storage: Micro SD/Micro SDHC minimum class 6, recommended class 10 up to 32gb (not included). Battery life: approx. 2.5 hours
    • Wi-Fi PODZ included to enable Shoot/Share functionality allowing real time upload to social media platforms; Compatible with all iON Accessories and Mounts.
    • Apple and Android App allows you to check your camera’s content from your smart device, or upload straight to cloud or social media sites in seconds—without ever touching your camera. Shoot in HD, Share in Real-Time.

      Bob,
      That is a fantastic find! Maybe David needs to make a towing package for this model!
      Peace,
      Tom
      If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

        Towing package. A length of the two-pound fishing line you recommended will do it, Tom ... and maybe a long stick to stabilize the things.

          Have you played with that line? I had images of you calling me names as you tried to tie it. I have trouble doing that. Did it help?

            First off, Tom, I want to thank you publicly for sending me that small mono-filament line. This weekend I used it at Israel Fest and the footage shows (or does not show) how effective it is. I hope to have that up on YouTube this week. Good stuff.

              David, not fishing for a thank you, so thank you for the thank you. I was more interested in if it helped.
              Glad it did! Now I know what to use :-)

                      That's the little 1/144 Trumpeter KILO kit. Always my second-best runner at the pool. I did bring along the SWM 1/96 KILO, but it was in the water when that shot was taken. Here it is:







                      That model has Kevin McLeod's Depth Controller. Making it the perfect model to let kids drive (under close supervision). All they have to do is steer as I mother-hen the throttle.
