For sale is a brand new, never been wet Canon/L&M system. The camera is the Canon Vixia HF-G10.

1920 x 1080 HD Recording, 32GB Internal Flash Drive, 2 x SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card Slots, Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor, 3.5" Touch Panel LCD, Color Viewfinder, Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens, Dynamic SuperRange Optical Stabilization, Customization Cinema-Look Filters, Professional Shooting Assist Functions

The housing is the Light and Motion OLED Bluefin housing. Visit the L&M site to see all of the details.

http://www.uwimaging...luefinoled.html

Also included 2 Canon 2100 mAh batteries and a 2 place Polaroid (Polaroid?) charger.

The system sells new for $5470 and you can have it for $4400. We bought the housing and camera with the incorrect understanding that there was a PRO version that had the flip up macro diopter system and one-touch exposure control which is on several of the L&M websites but in reality doesn't exist.

Pictures of the system on request but it is brand new in the box, never wet.

Hi, does it come with any wide angle optics other than the standard flat port?

I'm surprised that they would advertise something that doesn't exist. Or maybe I shouldn't be.

I think that they are not very careful with their ad copy. The sony BlueFin came in two versions one had both the OLED monitor back and the knobs for one touch aperture etc. I think they made the canon version and wanted it the same so they made the same ad but in reality they can't make the rest of the system work.

In any case, not very clear on anyone's website.

Hi Bil,

Is it still possible to access the exposure function through the menu?

Yes indeed you can get at it through the menu easily enough, but my wife wanted one knob access. Actually that wasn't the biggest killer, but rather the fact that you can not use the flip macro bit.

Is the housing able to use internal red filter?
If you can use internal red filter, what can't you change it to diopter lens?
What about one touch white balance ? Is the housing have this button ?
Thanks !!

It certainly uses the red filter with no problem. It has one touch white balance no problem. The diopter is about 2 mm thicker than the red filter and you can put the housing together with the diopter in place but you can't move it once the housing is together.
