I am selling my setup for two reasons: we are moving in a few week overseas so we have to downsize a bit and I want to upgrade to dSLR in the mid-term future.

I have taken a lot of good pictures with this setup and I am sure you will have a lot of fun with it. The Amphibico housing is oputstanding - superb build quality and lenses have great optics.

Here's the camera setup:
Camera: Sony Cybershot DSC-F717 (lens 2.0 - 2.8)
1 GB Memory stick (room for 400 pictures)
3 batteries plus charger
Set of +2,+4, and +6 closeup lenses
Carrying bag,
ND filter +2 and +4
UV filter (sits on the camera as default filter to protect lens)
58mm linear Polarizer

Housing: Amphibico Surveyor II, modified so that Macro button is accessible underwater - great for fishportaits, because the camera has a much faster AF in regular mode. Marco mode is needed for, well Macro and the Wide angle lens. Marine grade Aluminum housing, double O-rings, Flatport
Amphibico Light Sensor Device, emulates TTL
Amphibico 80 degree wide-angle lens. This lens is really nice. Wet mount, nearly fully zoom-able, incredible DOF, and its made from a massive block of glass.
Custom WA lens holder for under water.
Custom Macro port. Can take any 72mm filter, currently equipped with +10 macro lens.
58 mm Redfilter for available light photography, screws on the camera and goes in the housing

Custom made buoyance compensation system. Very flexible - great to make the camera neutrally buoyant for extreme macro shots.

ULCS strobe arm system:
Base tray
8 inch arm
2 clamps
strobe adapter

Ikelite substrobe MV (got it used, works great, battery compartment shows some signs of wear)
Ikelite slave strobe adapter (for use with Substrobe MV)
Ikelite slave strobe (throwing in for free - may run as optical slave)

Pelican 1550 case with plugfoam (OK as carry-on)
2 layers of unused foam

Tools, grease, replacement O-rings, and other small stuff one needs

All piece show little or no sign of wear, glass port, lenses and add-on filters have no scratches. Housing was NEVER flooded and is in excellent condition. For more details on the Amphibico parts, just visit their website. Camera just came back from factory and received a complete overhaul and re-calibration.

Asking US$2.500 plus shipping for the complete set.
PM me and I will send you pictures of the system and sample pics.

I am located in NC, USA - in case you prefer local pickup vs. shipping.
