My first video with the Drift Stealth 2 camera

Grab some popcorn, dim the lights, sit down on the couch and watch some kayak fishing videos.

This is the first video I've tried to make, so whatever...



Quite happy with the quality of the Stealth 2's video. This was 720p @ 30fps and I think the quality is fine. The camera can also record 720p @ 60fps or 1080p @ 30fps so I might play around, but quite likely to stay at this setting.

Sound through the waterproof case is almost non-existent. I can clearly hear movement through contact - in other words me moving around or bumping the kayak is loud, my can't hear my own voice - which might be a good thing.

Not so sure about the battery life in standby mode!! I got a total of 58 minutes over 9 clips spread throughout probably 4 hours or so, but this was with wifi off using the remote so I was probably hoping for more like 2 hours. At home I left the camera running continuously for 2 1/2 hours and I stopped it because I had to leave, so probably had some juice left, but I specifically got the remote because I don't want to film continuously. Anyway, will need to play around with it some more.

Nice work and well deserved... I spotted a little clockwise turn on the drag right at the end, may I suggest a little anti clockwise wise towards the end of the battle mate...

For the record, I don't usually fish with 3 rods! That beginning part was when nothing was biting and I thought I'd just give the squid jig a quick go.

Right... I don't really know how much stress that 4-8kg rod will handle, but I had started the drag way too loose and it was still taking line right at the end, which is why I put the net down and tightened the drag a little more. But I hear ya, will be a bit more patient.
Actually, I've got 6lb line on there, doesn't that mean that the rod should be safe?

Yes and no, you can pointload a rod with 2lb line and bust it... was more referring to the patience of bringing fish in, as most are lost boat side....
Side note prob heading out thurs/fri at this stage, will confirm later, if you are heading out bring the damaged rod and I will sort that guide out for you...
