Selling my Nikon D200 set up...
Reason for sale:
Upgrading to D800 housing
Please see the photo attached for visual kit description...
Nikon D200 camera body
Nikon 12-24mm F4.0 lens
Sea & Sea DX D200 Housing
Flat dome port with extension ring attached
Who would benefit from this kit?
Anyone looking to jump from compact to get their first SLR underwater
Newbie diver/photographer that doesnt want to spend the £5k+ you would spend on brand new gear
Quality of photographs?
Please see photos attached. The anemone fish photo has been cropped a bit but demonstrates close focus. Continuous focus mode great for tracking sharks. Happy to email you a whole bunch of photos I've taken with this kit.
How "used" is this gear?
The housing is in fantastic condition and has gone on three outings and has never flooded
Aliwal Shoal 2006
Red Sea 2008
Is there anything I should tell you?
There is a slight white mark (about an inch long) from where I scraped housing on a rinse tank on my first trip (as we all do). The mark has not worsened or degraded since and certainly hasnt affected performance.
The D200 camera body I used for my business (on land) at the time so it is rather tired although working absolutely fine. The rubber grips which are glues around the body are little loose and the lever to eject the memory card snapped off (you can access the memory card chamber easily by opening with finger nail)
How much can you have it for?
I'd like to sell everything in one go as a complete kit but would be willing to listen to offers for the gear without camera/lens. The D200/lens fetches £650 fairly easily on ebay.
Complete kit £1850 + p&p
Complete kit excluding camera £1300
If someone can put in a good offer before I go Red Sea next month I'd be happy to negotiate :-)
