I've bought a new rig and it's time for the old one to go to a loving home where it will be used. My 5D2 camera and housing have been to lots of exciting places - 6kms into an underwater cave, 120m deep on a shipwreck, on dive trips to half of South East Asia, and underwater around home most weekends. It's taken photos published in Nat Geo, international newspapers and a few first prize, dive trip winning shots. It has a well-earned set of cosmetic scratches on the outside of what has been an incredibly robust housing. This rig will go where you need to go and bring home the shot. All of the photos on my website were taken with this setup except for this week's photo.

Everything you need to get up and running with full frame photos and HD video is included, except a lens and a strobes/lights setup. The port extensions are suitable for use with Canon 14mm, Canon 100mm, and I believe the Canon 20mm/24mm lenses which I haven't used. The package contains:

 

Canon 5D2 body with battery, 16gb card

Aquatica housing with two Nikonos bulkheads, hydrophone (cable blu-tacked out of the way), handles with balls attached for putting strobe arms on and leak detector

8" dome port with dome shade, port locking device and extension for 14mm lens, lightly scratched

8" dome port with dome shade, heavily scratched (ok as long as you don't try and shoot into the sun, maybe some more polishing would help)

AF macro port with rear port cover and extension for 100mm lens

Neoprene covers for dome and macro ports

Spares: o-ring kit, o-ring grease, allen key for getting the dome shade off, deep spring kit and a spare pass through bulkhead that I bought and haven't used

 

The housing has a deep spring kit partially installed - I discovered that some buttons don't require deep springs and changed them back to regular ones. The housing is fully functional to 120m as that's where I took it in September. I have all of the springs and a bunch of spare c-clips. I am happy to reinstall the original springs if you would prefer, or will provide them so you can DIY as required. The nikonos bulkheads were replaced 18 months ago after the first round of pins corroded and should be good for another 5 years or so. 

 

Total price $4,200 AUD (this is about $3,200 USD at the moment) with free shipping in Australia. I'm in Melbourne if you would like to inspect/pick up the housing in person. International buyers pay shipping.

Hi,
not going to buy it,
but love your advertisment:

 It has a well-earned set of cosmetic scratches on the outside of what has been an incredibly robust housing. 

Great!!!

Thanks for making my day,
Wolfgang

One careful lady owner, driven only on weekends and holidays  :)

 

In all seriousness, what's the point of valuable equipment if you're afraid to take it to the place with the photo opportunity? I've never dropped or functionally damaged the housing and it continued to perform perfectly on all of my adventures. The scratches add a certain character.

 

I'm thinking of this as an adoption rather than a sale. I've taken incredible shots with this rig and it deserves to go to someone who will use it well.

Bump - still for sale. And the USD price is looking better by the day thanks to exchange rate movements.

And responded.

 

An additional note to say I am happy to split the domes and the macro port with extensions out from the camera body and housing, if someone is interested in one or the other.

Are the domes glass?

Nope. Aquatica 8" dome shade are acrylic. The Aquatica 9.25" mega dome is glass (bigger, heavier, more expensive, harder to scratch, impossible to polish out).
