Unfortunately, many of those plans involve no activity that is more adventurous than watching videos on iPads on the beach. Seen this way, iPads and iPhones do become great examples of the Gadget World. But that’s not the kind of outdoors gadget that we have in mind today. For those who really want to take the outdoors by the horns and really experience it, the kind of gadgets you get are not only useful, they are full of features you couldn’t ever get to see on a merely mortal iPhone. So when did the manufacturers suddenly realize that there was a market to be served in action oriented gadgetry? There’s a simple answer to that. They realized that when they found that the general consumer electronics market was dropping off every year at an unbelievable 10%. When you target a niche segment, you get to charge higher prices. That’s always a welcome way to go. Right?

But there is a high-tech gadget with a sonar that will help you zero in on where to catch is.

These are really inexpensive products like the $300 Liquid Image camera that comes strapped to a scuba helmet. It gives you high definition video of everything you look at with commendable colour accuracy.
