New Toy: Water Wolf 1.1 – Underwater Fishing Video Camera _ First Impressions



New Toy: Water Wolf 1.1 – Underwater Fishing Video Camera – First Impressions.

As I had to return my GoPro light and have to wait a few days for the replacement, I picked up a new toy. The Water Wolf Underwater Video Camera. It is basically a hydrodynamic waterproof camera which can be used to film underwater fishing. Most often to view baits and lures as well as fish biting them. This was my first day using the camera and my first day impressions. It is more complicated than it seems with a lot of trial and error needing to be done. Regardless, I got some decent footage. The after parts though ie. downloading and editing is a whole different story. A lot of work needs to be done to make that efficient. Still, the benefits will outweigh the initial hassles so expect to see more upcoming footage.
