Hello, I am John a photography major at Daytona State college joint with the University of Central Florida. A friend I met at the DEMA Show here in Orlando this past November, while volunteering told me to check this site out for some photo gear. I have the basic low budget college students have, and for that a photography student haha. I have been able to save up for a used Canon 1Ds Mark ll, and would love to get a housing for it. If anyone has a used but in good condition underwater housing that fits a canon 1ds mark ll please let me know! I know that one the main housing made for it is the Seacam housing and I would love to have one. I am one of 2 students in my program that shoots underwater, and the only one shooting digital underwater. I have been barrowing a friends housing but he has sold it and I would really just like to get one for my camera. Thanks for any help!

Thanks,
John

Actually, it's more than 50% off retail as the SuperDome runs ~$2,000.00. The link at BH shows the Super Dome but it's not included in the purchase price.

Usually if the auction ends early it means he removed it because the bids weren't high enough or he sold it privately to someone.
