SondeCAM HD is a powerful underwater camera ideal for fishermen of all levels, fishery managers and researchers looking to profile submerged structures and identify fish habitat and species. The camera features the latest low-lux image sensor for clear color, high definition visuals in various light conditions. An integrated WiFi module allows for streaming on mobile devices using the complimentary SondeCAM App. Underwater video is viewed in real time, recorded and shared directly on any supported smartphone or tablet.
SondeCAM HD can operate in marine or freshwater environments at depths up to 50 feet (longer cable lengths available). A marine-grade anodized aluminum body with hydrodynamic contours protects the camera. The power and signal cable is based on a high-flex design with abrasion resistant polyurethane jacket. A heavy-duty polymer bumper on the front of the SondeCAM HD withstands impacts, and a recessed scratch-resistant lens ensures continued performance in the harshest conditions.
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 cable. SondeCAM HD is compatible with a long list of smartphones, tablets, fishfinders and chartplotters, making it a convenient and economical way to view high-quality underwater video. Compatible fishfinders/chartplotters include Lowrance, Raymarine, and Garmin models with video input via RCA or BNC connector.

In The News
During an electronic monitoring conference in February, fisheries managers and fishermen watched a squiggly purple line meander across the screen. It was mapping the journey a tuna fish was taking, from being caught and landing across the deck of a fishing vessel.
Leigh Habegger, executive director for Seafood Harvesters of America , a national commercial fishing group, said everyone in the crowd had their eyes glued to the screen.
“It was fascinating, it was really cool,” she added.
The graphic was the manifestation of a machine-learning tool that was trained to follow where a fish ended up after it was caught.Read More
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission ’s Inland Fisheries Division has been working to restore brook trout in the state. Coldwater research coordinator Jacob Rash, who works with the brook trout team technicians on this project, spoke to EM about the work.
“In North Carolina, brook trout are our only native trout species,” explains Mr. Rash. “With that come biological and ecological considerations as well as cultural importance. A lot of folks here grew up fishing for brook trout with their relatives, so it's an important species that we work to try to conserve. We've done quite a bit of work to figure out where those brook trout populations are and what they are, in terms of genetics.Read More
Each year in Germany, as many as 450,000 living fish undergo live animal experiments to test how fish-friendly hydroelectric power plants in the country are. The idea is to discover how readily the fish can move through hydroelectric turbine installations in order to ultimately reduce mortality rates.
Of course, subjecting live fish to a potentially deadly test to save others is a bitter irony. And it's one that a team of scientists from the RETERO research project hopes to eventually mitigate with a robotic fish for testing.
EM corresponded with Olivier Cleynen and Stefan Hoerner from the University of Magdeburg about the complex flow conditions that set the parameters for the project.Read More
