Gear of the Week: MarCum PanCam
With the innovative new
MarCum PanCam system
, you can fish the hole at your feet and see a live feed on your smartphone from an underwater camera up to 300 feet away.Redefining the term fishing "hot spot," the PanCam system uses a free, downloadable app to turn every fishing hole into a WiFi hotspot, using your phone's data plan to transmit a live video stream from your underwater camera to the palm of your hand. You can network multiple cameras to one phone or tablet, and multiple anglers in a group can access the camera's live feed with their phones.Paired with the PanCam Panner, MarCum's free app turns any iOS or Android smartphone or tablet into both a camera monitor and a remote control - change camera direction, adjust lighting and transform your device into a digital video recorder capable of capturing underwater video and still images.
With the MarCum app, you can capture both still photos and video clips from your underwater camera and save them directly to your phone or post them instantly to Facebook or Twitter. Because it works with almost any modern underwater camera, MarCum's PanCam device can be purchased with or without a camera.Features of the PanCam Panner include:• Wi-Fi transmitter base• Fully integrated camera panner• Internal battery (6- to 8-hour run time)• 110V wall charger• Deluxe, padded soft caseSuggested retail price: $249.99
