I'm selling my Aquatica D800 system because my RED has bumped it to the bench. In addition to the housing and ports, I'm also selling my D800 body and lenses. The D800 is the best DSLR I've ever had, and I really hate to part with it, but I use all Canon glass on the RED, so it doesn't make sense to keep the D800 for a backup since I would have to maintain a full extra set of lenses. I'll be better off with a backup 7D body that can use the same glass as the RED.
I bought the Aquatica housing and the D800 in August of last year and used it daily until January. Since I started shooting with the RED in January, the D800 has been on the shelf. So it has had less than 6 months of use. There are no issues with the housing, never a hiccup. I like it even better than my previous Aquatica 5DII housing which gave me 2 years of daily service until I switched to the D800. The system has two ports, a standard macro flat port and an 8" Acrylic Dome with shade. The dome is 3 years old but has only been in the water a few times so it is still in perfect condition (I was living in Lembeh Strait, so shooting mostly macro). The housing has two Nikonos style sync ports. It also has an electronic vacuum monitoring system installed. It also has an Aquatica Aqua View Finder (straight version) which gives you a gorgeous huge image to compose with. Also included is an Aquatica 18457 extension ring. The storm case that I'm including to transport the system does not have custom cut foam for the housing, I'm just using pieces of foam to cushion everything.
Here's the housing portion of the system:

$4500.00 Plus your choice of shipping.
The D800 system includes the body with a 32GB CF card, a Nikkor 24-120 f4 ED VR Zoom (topside general shooting lens) and a Sigma 15mm f-2.8 that hasn't even been in the housing yet (already sold my 60mm macro). The camera has less than 5600 shutter activations. Comes with the normal accessories: battery, charger, USB 3 cable, manuals, strap and body cap.
Here's the camera portion of the system:

I will sell the housing system and the camera system separately, but I won't break out individual items from either package.
If you want to buy the whole works, you can have it all for $8000 and I will pay ground shipping anywhere in the continental US.
The system is currently with me in Bali, but I will be returning to the US June 14 and bringing it with me. If you want it in this part of the world, let me know before June 13. Wetpixel members get first shot at this system. When I get to the US everything that hasn't sold is going on eBay with a reserve above the prices offered here.
Here are a few photos of the components:
