For sale a complete Canon 7D system of cameras, lenses, housing, ports, strobes, batteries, vacuum system, and all needed accessories to have you in the water shooting the day it arrives.

Never leaked or flooded and includes a Backscatter AirLock vacuum system to ensure you have a good seal.  Original owner, less than 100 dives since last service by Backscatter.

I’ve made the move to full frame so I would prefer to sell it as a complete set. Package includes free email and phone tech support to help you understand how it all goes together and works in case Canon SLRs or underwater photography are new to you. I'm in the Seattle/Vancouver area and in-person transaction and setup is an option.

 

Original purchase price of full system was $13,000
Asking $5,500 plus shipping. 

 

Cameras and Housing

2 Canon EOS 7D bodies – 18 megapixel, 8 fps, full HD video, excellent manual white balance for shooting underwater ambient light

Includes batteries, charger and CF card.

I travel with two bodies, 1 for underwater with specific settings, and 1 for top side. Just in case anything happened underwater I had a backup. Never had anything happen but find having a 2nd land camera is sometimes useful.

Aquatica 7D housing – machined aluminum housing with large easy to navigate knobs. Button placement is exactly over the camera button, so once you can navigate the back of the camera you can navigate the housing. Housing was used with optical flash trigger, so no electronics to worry about.

All buttons, knobs, and buckles are properly aligned and operate smoothly with no sticking. There are minor superficial scratches on bottom of housing from boat deck.

Wide angle setup

Tokina 10-17 fisheye – probably the most widely used underwater wide angle lens ever made and still one of the best. Includes lens bag. Recently rated #2 best underwater lens of 2017 by Scubashooters.net

smallUWGear-0003.jpg

 

Aquatica 8” acrylic dome, shade, extension ring, port lock, 2 neoprene covers. The big dome gives great sharpness all the way to the corners of the frame, and is great for shooting splits. 

http://www.aquatica....orts_18405.html

 

Aquatica 4” glass mini dome with locking port ring, neoprene cover. The smaller dome is ideal for when you need to swim a lot when shooting things like whale sharks and humpback whales. Also useful for close-focus wide angle when you want to get the lens REALLY close. This port is like new, only 8 days in the water since it was purchased for the Wetpixel Isla Mujeres trip last summer.

http://www.aquatica....orts_18410.html

Macro setup

smallUWGear-0012.jpg

 

Canon 60mm – a good starter macro lens because the depth of field and focus are much easier than the 100mm on an APS-C 1.6 crop. Perfect length for most fish shots, ideal for things from about basketball size down to about 1 inch. For things from a few inches to 1cm size I used the Canon 100mm. The 100mm lens will not be included in the sale, but the extension ring for it is. Includes UV filter and case.

Aquatica low profile flat macro port – in excellent condition with no scratches on glass. Also includes extension ring for use with Canon 100mm, and neoprene cover

http://www.aquatica....orts_18429.html

 

smallUWGear-0013.jpg

 

Focus light

Sola 600 – fully sealed rechargeable, 3 brightness levels, also 3 brightness levels of red light for those skittish subjects. Useful as a focus light, and also as primary dive light on night dives. Includes Ultralight ball mount for light, Ultralight ball mount for housing, 1/4x20 stainless stud for mounting, and Ultralight clamp.

Strobes

smallUWGear-0035.jpg

 

A pair of Inon Z240 Type 4, with optical sync cords and housing adapter. Includes 2 diffusers, manual and original unused sets of clear and red filters for built in focus/aiming light. For the easiest use these strobes can be run in TTL, and in TTL with exposure compensation. This is an easy way to get started and get great pictures your first few trips if you are not comfortable with running manual strobe power adjustments. Once you get more comfortable and want to get creative shooting close focus wide angles with sunballs, then you can run manual. You can significantly reduce the power of the built in flash by a camera setting, allowing you much shorter flash recycle times. The strobes have never leaked and as you can see in the photo the battery compartments look brand new.

Also includes a pair of Ultralight 8 inch and 5 inch arms with strobe ball mounts, Ultralight clamps and Stix floats, plus 16 Eneloop batteries in cases and 2 chargers.

Bonus gear if you buy the full package

A Backscatter AirLock vacuum system. The port is already installed on the housing, includes manual pump. A must have for peace of mind and good insurance against accidents.

A set of Locline arms with Aquatica mounting hardware and Sola adapters. These were used for a set of video lights I won't be selling.

https://www.backscatter.com/Locline-34-Sola-Flex-Arm-for-GatesAquatica-video-h  

 

asmallUWGear-0030.jpg

 

A couple extra Canon lenses for top side use. These are small light lenses that travel well and having an extra backup body for underwater that doubles as your land/boat camera.

Pictured below with the same Tokina  10-17 and Canon 60 mentioned above.

  • Canon 17-85 IS USM
  • Canon 28-105
  • Canon 100-300

Also a variety of O-rings, allen wrenches, and other small bits that may come in handy.

Hi,

If you consider selling the kit as parts, I would like to buy your 4" dome.

Kind regards

Hi.  I have a 7D with wide and macro lenses.  Also have focus light.  Would you sell with just one body, no focus light and no lenses?
