FOR SALE: SOLD: Seacam underwater housing for Canon EOS 5D Mark II digital SLR.

This is a complete kit, including multiple ports, extension rings, gears, and accessories. If you add a camera body, lenses, strobe arms, and Ikelite strobes, you will be READY TO SHOOT. If you do not want to shoot Ike strobes, you will also need new strobe sync cords.

Nearly every image and video I've shot in the last 12 months has been taken with this housing. I've never had a flood, and other than standard usage scratches on the bottom of the housing, it pretty much looks new (the inside looks new, and the outside looks nearly new) -- amazing after putting it through hundreds of dives. Every control is reliable 100% of the time.

The ports definitely look used. The SuperDome has a small scratch on it (on the bottom part of the dome -- never been visible in any of my images), and has etching on the surface, possibly from diesel fuel. However, I've never seen the etching affect any of my images -- you can't find it in any of them. The WidePort has been used once and looks new. The macro port is weathered, but has never leaked and has good optics.

I've basically taken what I pack on my photography trips and have bundled it together for sale. I'm also selling my two Canon 5D Mark II bodies for $1800 each. They are working perfectly. CAMERAS SOLD

This rig is COMPLETE except for strobe arms, strobes, and luggage, and will support the following lenses (what I have used with it):

Canon 15mm fisheye
Tokina 17mm/3.5
Canon 20mm/2.8
Sigma 20mm/1.8
Sigma 50mm macro (in the longer port -- works fine)
Canon 50mm macro (in the longer port -- works fine)
Canon 24-105/4L
Canon 100mm macro USM 2.8
Canon 100mm macro USM 2.8 + Kenko 1.4X tele (with custom focus ring)
Canon 100mm macro USM 2.8 + Kenko 2X tele (with custom focus ring)

WHY I AM SELLING

I'm selling because I plan to shoot a lot of 3D video in the upcoming years, and I also have a couple other housings to use. I can't justify owning all of this stuff.

PRICE: xxxx shipped insured to you in the continental USA. Shipping out of the USA extra. SOLD

Extra stuff: 2 x Canon EOS 5D Mark II digital SLR bodies for $1800 each (about 12 months old)

The supermacro float alone is worth the asking price ;-)
