I'm reducing the price of my Amphibico Phenom/Sony Z1U system for a quick sale. I'm getting a Scarlet-X system and need some extra cash fast. The exterior of the housing was recently refinished with a black wrinkle finish to match my Aquatica system. At that time, it was completely disassembled and all o-rings either serviced or replaced. It has not been in the water since refurb. The 94 deg. optic also had a fresh dome put on during refurb. It also has a flat port for macro that has only been on the system a couple times. It has an Xit404 Pentamirror for easy wide angle viewing of the top LCD. The system has two spare handles (one left, one right) and a pair of spare acrylic domes for the 94 deg optic (both in good shape with no scratches). It comes with Amphibico's custom fitted Pelican travel case. The camera is in good working order. It made one trip to Sony about 3 years ago for a new tape drive mechanism. It also had the viewfinder LCD changes at the same time because it was showing some burn marks. The camera's main LCD shows a few bright "speckles", but they are only visible when shooting a really dark area and haven't bothered me to the point that I felt like changing it out. I've included a photo of the LCD so that you can see it's not a major issue.
Included in the system is:

Phenom Z1 housing.
94 degree WA optic.
Flat port
2 spare dome ports
2 spare handles
Xit404 Pentamirror
Sony Z1U video camera
Some misc camera accessories (as pictured)
Fitted Pelican case

Complete package cost is US$2950. I will ship anywhere in the US for Free (by ground). If you need it faster, just pay the difference in shipping cost. It will ship with the housing stuff in the Pelican case and the camera and accessories in a separate box. I'm currently in Indonesia, but the camera and housing are in the US at my Son's house all packed and ready for shipment.

I will NOT split the system up, don't ask.

I will consider international sales, but shipping will be negotiable.

Hi there,
Am interested in your Phenom - mainly for the wide port and as a backup to my own Phenom housing.
What condition is the 94 degree wide port; - any scratches or blemishes on the lens? Is it glass or acrylic like the spare domes you mention?
