Product Review: Whistler Rush Action Camera Review

The Whistler Rush action camera is a intriguing addition to the action camera market. I was able to take it on several fishing trips and capture a variety of footage in challenging conditions. How did it perform? Read on for the full review of the Whistler Rush action camera. 

The Whistler Rush films at 1080p/30fps, 720p/60fps. The 170 degree viewing angle is cut down to a 127 with the 1080p video. Camera has 5.0 M CMOS sensor, f/2.8 6-layer glass lense, with H.264 compression. Photos are 8 MP. Dual Micro SD card slots are available (neat touch!), allowing for even more recording options, in addition to a built-in dash cam feature for on/off recording with ignition. There is also a white LED light on the front that can be used to better iluminate subjects, another unique touch on the Rush action camera. HDMI, Aduio video ouput, time lapse photography and a swell 1.5 inch color monitor round out this impressive array of features on the Rush. It's really shocking that GoPro still can't seem to include a view screen on all its models; I am very glad to see this feature on the Rush. It's easy to navigate the built in menu and adjust settings as needed on it as well.

Fly Fishing Santa Ana River: Urban Creekin'

The Santa Ana River is one of the few year-round flowing streams in Southern California. Sure, most of it is runoff from neighborhoods and water-treatment plants. However, there still exists a good number of warmwater fish living a midst the concrete spillways and overpass shadows. Here is a short video I created, filmed with the Midland XTC action camera, shot alongside the Santa Ana River.

Fall Catfish Surprise

Hit up my favorite bass lake for a little warmwater fishing this Fall in California. Couldn't find the largemouth, but I hooked into a rather big surprise on my plastic bass lure! Hello, Mr. Whiskers!

Summer Steelhead and Smallmouth Bass

Just returned from a fantastic trip to the Pacific Northwest. Managed to get in some excellent smallmouth bass fishing on the Columbia River in Washington State. To make things even better, I also caught a summer steelhead while fishing for the smallies! 
Check the video out below, filmed with the BlackVue Sport Action Camera. 
Also, check out these underwater photos I took of steelhead smolts as well!

Just another California Trout Fishing Trip

The water was running fast and cold, the trout were eager to bite, and I had the whole creek to myself. Perfect.

Salton Sea Fishing for Tilapia

Just returned from a fun-filled fishing trip to the Salton Sea. I hope you enjoy the video of the tilapia fishing!
Not much to report, aside from stained waters, plenty of small tilapia, and a long, long drive.
