INTRODUCTION
Congratulations for your purchase.
Hook-Eye is the revolutionary Sportfishing Underwater Camera
designed to shoot high-definition videos and capture fast action
even in extreme conditions, such as Marlin fight. Attached to any
standard wire and monofilament leaders, Hook-Eye can deliver
unprecedented images of the strike and the ensuing fight in full
HD. Thanks to an adjustable centerboard equipped with different
sized tungsten sinkers, the cam can be trolled up to 10 knots
speed while remaining very stable. Its rugged body, the absence
of external buttons and the double o-ring seal allow it to withstand
high pressure and reach an operating depth of more than 400 feet
(120 meters).
Packaging
Hook-Eye believes in being responsible to the environment. The
packaging is made to be used as a floating waterproof accessory
case and comes free with your purchase. The case contains the
camera and the quick-start guide. Nothing gets disposed in the
environment.

command. One single command to start and stop recording as well.

cards with different saved profiles on to quick switch between them. The
