Details

The SondeCAM mini is a compact underwater camera ideal for professional anglers, fishery managers and researchers looking to identify fish habitat and profile submerged structures. SondeCAM mini is smaller and lighter than other SondeCAM models, allowing it to easily be towed behind a boat or maneuvered with a pole attachment. The camera features an ultra-compact low-Lux image sensor for clear color visuals at a resolution of 520 TV lines.

SondeCAM can operate in marine or freshwater environments at depths up to 300 feet. An anodized aluminum body with hydrodynamic contours protects the camera from rusting and saltwater corrosion. The power and signal cable is based on a high-flex design with abrasion-resistant polyurethane jacket. Heavy-duty plastic caps on the front and rear of the SondeCAM withstand impacts, and a scratch-resistant lens ensures continued performance even after rough deployments.

The low-light camera performs well in a range of aquatic conditions and is powered directly from a boat's 12VDC power source using the included adapter cable. SondeCAM models are compatible with a long list of fishfinders and chartplotters, making it a convenient and economical way to view underwater video. Compatible fishfinders/chartplotters include Lowrance, Raymarine, and Garmin models with video input via RCA or BNC connector.

Nonprofit kick-starts water data gathering in Nepal Valley

For the first time, citizens of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal have free access to local water data. The data is the result of a water quality monitoring pilot project started by the California-based nonprofit SmartPhones4Water (S4W). SmartPhones4Water, an idea developed by Ph.D. student Jeff Davids and the late Dr. Peter-Jules van Overloop from Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), was started in California in 2014. The goal of the organization is to leverage smartphone technology to gather water data in countries where such data is scarce. The method is simple: a network of local citizens use their smartphones to capture and upload the data to an online server and database.
