FS: Tokina 10-17mm Fisheye Zoom with Nauticam Zoom Gear

09 July 2018 - 05:10 AM

I am selling my Nikon mount Tokina AF DX 10-17mm AT-X f/3.5-4.5 Fisheye Zoom with Nauticam Zoom Gear (SKU: # NA-19127)


The lens is in perfect cosmetic and working condition. Lens elements are both clean of marks, dust, or fungus and completely void of any scratches. The same can be applied to the exterior lens barrel as well. This lens comes with front and rear lens caps, and the original box.   


The lens comes packaged with a Nauticam zoom gear (SKU: # NA-19127) for this lens, which too is in mint condition.  


I am selling it as I am more satisfied with the results that I am getting from Nikon 8-15mm fisheye.


Price for both lens and zoom gear together, $400.00 USD – includes free shipping anywhere in the USA. Additional charges to countries outside the US will need to be applied. Please contact more for more info.

One Nauticam 10mm N120 extension ring - $110.00 USD

This 10mm extension ring fits for any Nauticam DSLR housing port of extension ring with the N120 mount.


Nauticam N120 Extension Ring 50 with lock - $225.00 USD

This Nauticam 50mm extension is in excellent condition and comes with a Nauticam rear port cap.


Shipping anywhere in the USA for the Nauticam extension rings together or separate is included in the selling price. Additional charges to countries outside the US will need to be applied. Please contact more for more info.  

FS: Two Retra Strobes

21 June 2018 - 02:40 PM

I have two Retra strobes that I am putting up for sale. I am only going to sell them as a pair.



Both strobes are in full working order. While one is cosmetically in perfect condition, the other strobe had experienced flooding in the battery compartment during a Cayman Islands trip back in May. The flash was immediately sent into Backscatter for servicing, which their service department where able clean the battery contacts down inside the battery chamber and replace the battery door with a new one. What damaged is still present from the battery acid leakage inside the battery compartment is largely cosmetic through very noticeable discoloration and some micro pitting to the aluminum walls inside the chamber and around the battery contacts, which the contacts themselves shiny and bright, and around the edge of the battery door.  Before sending it back to me, Backscatter had given it both a complete pressure test for watertight integrality, as well as a performance test for light output and recycle time to be sure that everything was working the way it should be. 


I am not sure how it how it happened as I am generally very meticulous in how I prep and care for my equipment, and the fact this strobe is extremely new, but the one thing I can say is that the strobe appeared to have been working just fine (eve recycling a bit faster than the non afflicted strobe) all the way to the end of the dive. 


Both strobes still have well over a year left under Retra’s warrenty. 


Each strobe comes with the following:

Each Retra Flash comes with fiber optic and Sea & Sea connectors

1-inch Mounting ball

Wide-angle diffuser

Neoprene protector

Retra Reduction Rings (SKU: rt-redu-ring, Price $46.00 each) designed to cut down the light pattern, which makes it ideal for reducing backscatter in macro or wide-angle shots.

Pack of 8 (new open box) PowerX 2700 mAh NiMH Batteries


Selling Price: $ 1200 USD. Buyer pays for shipping.
