Hi Guys,

After many year with the Olympus sp-350 and Ikelite housing, it's time to move to a better camera. We want a DSLR anyway to take above water pictures as well, so I am looking for a DSLR in very good condition and apropriate housing. Ideally something with TTL.


Please let me know if you have anything to offer.

You don't say whether you have any preferences in camera system or housing types.  I have a Seacam D700 housing body and a D700 to go with it.


The housing has had several modifications that make it much more user friendly.  These include a control that pushes either the preview or the function button on the D700.  And provides a port lock.  There is also a "clutch" that engages or disengages the manual focus gear depending on whether the camera is set to manual focus or auto-focus. These cost over $2000 to add but made the housing and camera much more functional.


New the housing alone cost over $5000.  That is about what I would want for the highly modified housing body and the D700 camera body that includes 2 batteries.  The housing currently has a 5-pin flash bulkhead fitting.


I also have a Seacam 45-degree viewfinder, a wide port and a few extension rings that could be included in a "package".
