I have a complete professional underwater video camera setup to sell - including camera, housing, ports and accessories. The camera is presently in South Africa, but will be bringing it back to the US (Connecticut area) on 12th of April if anyone is interested in having a first hand look.

Canon XF100 video camera - little brother to the XF300, BBC approved for broadcast video work.
The XF100 uses same codec etc, and records full HD at 50mb/s at 4:2:2 color depth - technically still broadcast spec. More details here:

Also included are the Canon wide and tele lens attachments, extra large battery + charger, mic adapters etc for the XF100.

The matching underwater housing is made by BS Kinetics, called a Takla Makan.
Housing allows electronic access to all camera functions and is made of carbon, so nice and light for travelling with. Upgraded to OLED monitor on the back.

An independent review of the camera and housing system here:

All electronic bits like new, not a scratch. Housing has approx 100 dives on it.


- XF100 camera (inc spare battery) $1200
- Wide adapter lens $150
- Tele adapter lens $150
- CF card (1x 32GB @ 90mb/s) $100
- Housing $2000
- Dome port $200

Total $3800
(total cost new was approx $7600)

Update: Will be in the US from 14th onwards including Washington, New York and San Francisco. Also going to Mexico. The camera and housing can be brought to any of these areas if someone were seriously interested.
