  1. Simply the bestReview by
    Rating
    The Cammenga is issued to the armed forces of the USA and it's built to withstand combat conditions. It is extremely accurate with directions printed in both degrees and mils and both are perfectly readable in the dark thanks to the Tritium "lights". The needle locks when not in use so it won't get damaged by impacts or vibrations and because it doesn't contain liquid (it's induction damped) it isn't prone to bubbles which could affect its accuracy. This is the best compass I've ever owned and I can highly recommend it to anyone who wants a top-quality precision instrument. (Posted on )
  2. The Compass That I Like The MostReview by
    Hello everyone

    apologize if my english is not the best and all errors...

    I will try to be short but i would like to explain "why this is the compass that i like the most" (at today March 23 2016), so i need to talk about "every single point" of my choice...

    First of all: I AM NOT A "GPS GUY"

    II lived on a sailboat for many years (mostly sailing alone on the Mediterranean sea) and i learned fast that "GPS and ELECTRONICS in general" have the bad habit to let you down "when you need them the most".

    Does not matter if i am on sea or land... I always use "Compass and Map"...

    So my research about "The Best Compass" started many years ago.

    I own most of the compasses on the market today, including: Brunton, Recta/Sunto, K.R., Cammenga, F. Barker (and a lot of other cheap compasses and "button/wrist" compasses too); i tested everything on any conditions possible.

    IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT "CAMMENGA IS NOT THE BEST"...

    ...CAMMENGA IS "WHAT I LIKE THE MOST".

    The best compass on the Market today is probably the Francis Barker M73: it is the "fastest", the "less sensible to magnetic interferences" (like electrical lines ecc), amazingly accurate, stronger... The M73 have the "whole package" but... My eyes are not the best (i use glasses) and when it get wet, the prism (that is TO LITTLE) became (TO ME) unusable and i am unable to read directly from the wheel... It is to little too...
    Also, the M73 is "liquid filled" (it is great because IT IS RE-FILLABLE) but to do it right you need "white petroleum" and a refrigerator (i like to have gear that DO NOT DEPEND FROM ELECTRICITY OR STUFF THAT IS NOT "READILY AVAILABLE IN NATURE").

    EVERY COLONEL ON THE PLANET CAN TELL YOU THIS:

    "HOPE FOR THE BEST; BE READY TO FACE THE WORST!"

    Cammenga is a "DRY COMPASS", this mean that i can open it in NO TIME, with just a screw driver if needed. My oldest Cammenga stopped to turn (the needle was dulled) and i fixed it in like 15 mins (sharpened the needle and got care of the gasket too).
    Same story if you need to use it on the "opposite side" (you will probably need to "re-calibrate" the wheel; on the Cammenga you can do it your own with no special tools).

    Cammenga also have the "DOUBLE SCALE" (6400 primary+360) and both are TOTALLY USABLE. The 360 one goes in 5° steps (and many people dislike it); to me is "good enough", in the real world (with experience) you obtain EXACTLY THE SAME ACCURACY AS THE "ONE DEGREE STEPS".

    Cammenga have a "GREAT RATIO BETWEEN WEIGHT AND TOUGHNESS"...

    And now... One of the points that many "experts tend to underestimate":

    -SIMPLICITY OF USE-.

    When you "look in a LENSATIC COMPASS" "YOU SEE THE DEGREE AS THEY ARE", nothing is "INVERTED" (like append in a "PRISMATIC COMPASS"). Point something--->watch in to the glass--->read the number--->BOOM; DONE! EASY PEASY!

    I have been in situations (after several days/weeks of "15 mins sleep routine", "eat when you can" in "bad weather kick you in the nuts") and i can tell you this... YOU DO NOT WANT A COMPLICATED COMPASS TO RELAY ON (like the Brunton "Transit Series" with "EVERYTHING ON REVERSE" - lol Brunton people... "What does your head tell you?! -).

    The only defect of the Cammenga is that "the second plane" (the external one) is not "water resistant" and it is easy to become foggy in the cold (or in wet environmental); faster solution: take it off momentarily (not the best because before of after you will brake it, like i did on 2 of my compasses). The compass will still work perfectly but you will lose the function of the "route memory"...

    Last point: illumination...

    The H3 model is fantastic (and if you buy it from HH you will get a nice and bright Tritium - not like many other sellers that send you compasses stored for years with unusable spent tritium).
    In any case you can add on the bottom of the "wheel room" a mix of "resin and STRONTIUM ALLUMINATE" (the resin MUST BE WITHOUT UV PROTECTIONS or it will not work properly); it will give you NOT LESS THAN 5 HOURS of visibility in total dark with a single exposure to a light source (you can do it on both models "H3 and 27"

    I usually do not do review long as this one (and neither read stuff like this) but today (for some reasons) i did... Hope someone will enjoy the reading...

is this unit globally balanced, or just for north or south hemisphere which?
A:
Hello Mr Murcutt...I have checked with our suppliers. They mention nothing about being balanced so I am fairly certain it uses a single global system that can be used anywhere in the world
