FS: Canon G7X + Nauticam NA-G7X Housing + Accessories

Canon G7X + Nauticam NA-G7X Housing + Accessories

 

I am a little sad to part with this camera as I have made many great images (a majority of the shots on https://uw.jonjake.com/) with it but I just upgraded to a DSLR and it no longer gets used.  I hope it can find a new owner who loves it as much as I have the last 2 years! This camera/housing has been in the water quite a few times but it still works great and takes great images. The ports have some very minor scratches and staining but I have never noticed either in any images. The window for viewing the camera LCD has some scratches on it, Backscatter is quoting a replacement right now and I would happily split the cost of the replacement with the buyer if they want it.

 

Here is what is included:

  • Canon G7X Camera 
  • 2x Extra Canon NB-13L Batteries  (3 batteries total)
  • Nauticam NA-G7X Housing (including N50 standard port, spare o-rings, flash plugs, grease)
  • Nauticam M14 Vacuum Valve (and pump)
  • Nauticam Flexitray II (Left Handle + Right Handle + Tray + Remote Shutter Release)
  • 2x Naticam Strobe Ball for Flexitray
  • Nauticam N50 Short Port
  • I have all the original boxes and will include those if you want them.

$1300 USD + Shipping (or local pickup).   Payment via PayPal. Everything was ~$2500 new less than 2 years ago. 

 

Please let me know if you have questions or want to see additional pictures.

Belize - Looking for Reccomendations

29 November 2017 - 07:16 AM

I will be going to Belize for a week in January and staying in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye.  I dove in Belize many years ago before I was into underwater photography but don't remember who that was with.    Does anyone have recommended dive operators in this area?  

 

Here is what I am most interested in:

- Turneffe Atoll

- Shark Ray Alley

- Mangroves (if people anyone will do it, I know they have had some crocodile problems)

- Lighthouse Reef/Blue Hole (Is this worth doing?)

- Local dive sites near San Pedro.

 

I am mostly interested in shooting wide angle but would also do 1 or 2 days of macro.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

 

Best Regards,

WTB: Snoot for Inon Z-240

I am looking for a snoot for an Inon Z-240.  Would potentially be interested in either a Retra LSD or 10Bar.


Very Disappointed with Dyron SWAL13

Proceed with caution if your are looking at the Dyron SWAL13 Wet Wide Angle Lens!  I really hate to make a post like this here but I dont want anyone else to end up in this same situation.

 

I bought one about a year ago very excited about it after reading several reviews online.  I have taken some decent pictures with it, as my eye became more trained and I shot with it more, I started noticing that its focus was pretty soft relative to other wet lens I have used (Nauticam WWL-1 & CMC-1)  I posted about that here: http://wetpixel.com/...showtopic=59530

 

Bad went to worse.  I dove with this lens in Monterey this last April and noticed that there was large dot of condensation that formed between two of the elements when exposed to the cold water. Autofocus really doesn't like trying to focus through a cloud.  Below is a picture of a crab under the large dot of condensation from April when I first noticed the problem.

 

You would assume that wet lens should be well sealed to prevent moisture from getting between the elements.  I don't know if mine has a defect or they are just not well made but its really disappointing. Dyron advertises a 2 year warranty on their website, I have tried to contact them several times with various email address and have gotten no responses. I have also tried to see if several US vendors have a way of getting ahold of them and they have had no luck.

 

Before making this post I decided to do a test to confirm this condensation problem.  I put the lens in a bowl of ice water, within a minute or so the dot of condensation clearly started forming in the center between the 2 elements.

 

I am now stuck with a big useless piece of fairly expensive glass that I cannot sell.
