Questions and Answers for J. W. Fishers DV-1 Dropped Underwater Video:
What is the lens size on this? What resolution does it have? Does it have video output to a laptop? We are looking to use this camera to help build a cofferdam so it would be used in a construction setting, is it durable? Also we are in the upper midwest mainly we have mid to low visibility rivers, is this camera going to do what we want or should we be looking for something else? and could you advise to what may be the best to use? Thank you
