Airmar CA500 Underwater Camera

Airmar Transducers
CA500 Underwater Camera

Underwater Viewing Power
Combine the fish-finding power of an Airmar transducer with the viewing capability of the Airmar CA500 Camera and get the ultimate underwater observation system. This thru-hull camera will display what is directly below the boat, making it an ideal underwater fishing camera or underwater video surveillance/safety system. Simply connect the single cable to any display with a PAL or NTSC input and spy on the underwater world.

Rugged and Serviceable
We have combined the industry renowned Airmar housings  with one of the lowest Lux (0.01) cameras available today—all protected by a sapphire viewing window that resists scratching or cracking. The retractable housing with valve is available in plastic, bronze, or stainless steel and allows for easy servicing and cleaning of the camera while the boat is in the water. See what you have been missing with the Airmar CA500 Underwater Camera.
