After a change of plans I am back home in Canada and looking to sell my entire underwater camera rig.  All components are in like new condition and the housing will be shipped to Ikelite for maintenance before being sent to the buyer (I will pay the ikelite maintenance bill).  

 

Included with sale:

 

-Ikelite T4i/650d housing

-Ikelite 8" dome port (with port body for Sigma 10-20mm)

-Two Ikelite DS160 substrobes with smart charger

-Two Ikelite dual sync cables (one used and one brand new)

-Two Ikelite 9" arms

-Two Ikelite 6" arms

-Six Ikelite ball clamps

-Canon T4i body (shutter count around 5000)

-Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 wide angle lens

 

I will include lot's of extras such as an ikelite o-ring kit, micro mesh acrylic dome repair kit, custom strobe diffusers, etc.  If I get my full asking price I would also be willing to throw in a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens.

 

I have used this setup on about 25 dives and everything works perfectly.  The Sigma 10-20mm works great behind the 8" dome and yields sharp corners with minimal vignetting.  I have even used the Tamron 17-50mm behind the 8" dome with pretty good results (not a true macro lens but fun to play around with).  This camera features auto-focus in video and this function works quite well underwater.

Asking price for the full setup $3700 USD

 

Asking price for the full setup (no body or lenses) $2800 USD

 

Asking price for strobes/arms/sync cables $1400 USD

 

Asking price for housing and dome port only $1500 USD

Hey, I'm interested in this setup.  You mentioned sending this off to Ike and also returning to Canada, so just wondering when this would actually ship if we made a deal?  Do you have any photos or video shot with the 10-20?  Thanks!

Hey Poggus,

 

I'm not 100% sure but I imagine I could ship to Ikelite and then have them ship the housing directly to you after it's had the necessary maintenance done (and as mentioned I will be paying the bill).  All of the other stuff I would ship directly to you.  I have a ton of sample videos and photos.  I'm no pro but the sample stuff will at least show what the camera is capable of.  I will send you a  private message with a link to some of my best shots.  I will also make a sample video compilation and post it on youtube and send you the link.

here's some of my best shots with this setup.  Most were shot with the 10-20mm but a couple were shot with the Tamron 17-50mm.  Like I said I'm not a pro but these were the best shots I got from about 25 dives with this setup.  I'm going to throw together a few video clips and post them on youtube ASAP.

I have a deal pending on the whole setup but if it falls through I will likely be selling everything off piece by piece.

 

Here's a link to a video I made from about 8 dives in Bali/Gili and also Apo Island.  Please understand that either iMovie or youtube (or my lack of editing skills) butchered the quality of the video.  The individual clips look great when viewed in quicktime but at some point in the editing/uploading process they start to look really pixelated even in 1080p.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
