Hello!
Due to unforeseen circumstances I am selling my complete underwater photography system consisting of

  • Canon 300D 6.1MP SLR camera
  • Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens
  • Canon Speedlite 550EX
  • UK-Germany UK-D-300D underwater camera housing for Canon 300D
  • UK-Germany SBG550EX underwater strobe housing for Canon 550EX
  • UK-Germany flat port for 18-55mm lens
  • Zoom Gears for 18-55mm lens
  • S6 sync cable
  • Kilgus MK300 strobe arms
  • Pelicase with foam cutouts
The system listed above is a complete underwater photo rig with no other items required to take great pictures at a publishable standard. I also have many accessories, several of which are included in the package:
  • Kowalski neoprene protection for strobe housing
  • UK-Germany Port extension ring, 45mm (extends port to fit EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens)
  • UK-Germany Port extension ring, 70mm (extends port for even longer macro lenses)
  • Stofen Omnibounce diffuser (useful when flash unit is used outside of the housing, e.g. for weddings)
  • Spare O-rings for camera housing, port and strobe units
  • O-ring grease plus all tools, screws, attachments required for the u/w housing.

All the items have been used, some have cosmetic wear and some scratches, but no part of the optics or electronics is scratched, worn or damaged anywhere. Everything is perfect working order with lots of life left in it!

It won't impress anyone much if I say that the components listed above cost more than 3000 when new. But you may be interested if I told you that the whole set (everything listed above) is on sale, as a package, for: 800

If will also offer the buyer an induction session into the usage and maintenance of the system, in case the buyer decided to save postage and pick up the gear from my place in the Plymouth area. If you're in the South-West and it can be arranged I'd even suggest to go for a dive together and I'll give you 1-on-1 tuition. You can check out my website and find a collection of the images that I shot with this system at http://www.fredwobus...tos/Underwater/



I have lots of other Canon gear and other photo equipment which I am selling separately, some of which combines very well with the underwater package, so let me know if you're interested. These include:

  • Fantasea LED focus light with short flexi-ball arm (attached to housing above the port)
  • Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM macro lens (fits inside the standard port)
  • Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM macro lens (requires use of the 45mm extension ring, which is included in the package)
  • Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens
  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L USM lens
  • Sigma APO 1.4x TC telephoto converter for Canon EF-mount (works perfectly with 70-200mm telephoto lens)
  • Manfrotto 055 ProB tripod, black
  • Benro KS-1 ball head

Those extra items are on sale in accordance with their typical prices they currently command on eBay etc. If you're interested in the underwater system and would like some of these extra items with it, I'll make you a good price, but you'll understand that I will try to sell the non-underwater items separately.

Thanks for your interest,
Fred

Just a polite "bump" to say that the package is still for sale. It's a great price, and the individual components are worth more than what I'm asking. It may be worth considering that a more recent model of an entry-level Canon EOS (let's say, a 500D) with a latest flash (e.g. 580EX) plus camera housing (e.g. a cheap plastic Ikelite) and strobe housing etc. will set you back at least 3000-3500.

Don't miss this unbeatable price for a cheap entry into underwater DSLR photography. As it is such a bargain, I hope you'll understand that shipping is not included and any postage or other fees (e.g. Paypal fees) will be added to calculate the final price.

Hi there,
I am very interested in the package. I live in New Zealand, would you be willing to organise postage there? At my cost of course! Will all the components fit into the case? I tried to pm you but can't, i think because I'm a new member. My email is brianthediver@gmail.com.

The system is now sold.

Thanks to wetpixel member brianthediver for arranging a smooth transaction. I am sure that it goes to a good home :B):
