SONY PMW-EX1 XDCAM EX Full HD Camcorder-

 In good shape. Bought new for $8700 five years ago. Was used as documentary on-land camera as well and has more hours than the Gates housing, but works perfectly. Camcorder has some cosmetic wear on body and eye piece which doesn’t affect the performance or usability. Never had a problem, rock solid and excels at underwater images.
