Topics I've Started

The following is likely only of interest to us old divers who once shot film. This auction is currently on Ebay and ends this Sunday.......Nikon Super CoolScan 5000 ED Film Scanner with SA-21 single slide mount and SF-210  Multiple Slide Feeder, and a “same era” G4 Macbook with Nikon software loaded. I am the original owner.


I have scanned hundreds of slides with this unit. It is in perfect working condition. When I was not using it, the scanner was sealed in plastic and stored in a dehumidified office where I have my computers and original transparencies. The scanner is in perfect working order and comes with the following (as pictured)….:

Original Manuals (still available as a PDF download too)

SF-210 Slide Feeder

MA-21 single slide feed 

SA-21 Film Strip feeder 

AC cord

G4 Macbook with charger.


Note: the computer needs to be plugged in. The battery is well beyond its life expectancy (although replacements are still available). Once you get this system, do NOT upgrade the software. This is the last Mac/Apple operating system that the Nikon software will work on. The only thing not included is a hard drive to store the scans on. That USB or firewire hard drive needs to be a self powered desktop model. Not a portable USB powered hard drive. 


This Nikon scanner will also work with current versions of the latest Mac or PC computers, but you will need to purchase new non-Nikon software such as VueScan or SilverFast scanning software


The buyer pays insurance and shipping ($90.00 airmail from Hawaii) and I will accept Paypal. Payment due within 2 days of close of auction.  Thanks for looking and good luck bidding. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

The following is currently on Ebay, item #111824331338. The auction ends on this Sunday. I also have a Canon 5D mark 2 on at the same time. If you mention Wetpixel and win both auctions I will deduct the shipping on the camera.Attached File  8E0C2306.jpg   178.44KB   8 downloads





I am a professional photographer (see davidfleetham dot com) and I’m selling this Canon 5D mark 2 Ikelite housing because I have upgraded to the 5D mark 3 model. This auction is only for the housing.  The housing will be shipped in the original Ikelite box that it came in. The housing includes everything you get with a new housing (some of the parts you will be getting came with my new housing and have never been used). You get the tray and dual handle setup (never been in the water) as pictured and two Special Zoom Clamp/Sleeve and Zoom Sleeve (Ikelite part number 5509.27 and 5509.28), extra screws and control fittings along with Ikelite’s SLR-DC Housing instruction manual and Quick Start Guide. The housing is USED and there are a few scratches and points of wear, but nothing that would have any affect on it working properly, as it has for me. I have never had a single drop of water in the housing. If you have not used an Ikelite housing before, it is worth mentioning that this housing works with Canon’s TTL system with Ikelite’s strobes.  Two buttons on the back of the housing that allow you to switch from manual to TTL where you can also adjust to under expose or over expose with the TTL.  This is an impressive piece of technology that no other housing manufacturer has been able to duplicate and it is one of the main reasons I use Ikelites housings.  Again…this auction is only for the housing itself.  No strobes.  No cords.  No ports.  No camera. No lenses. I do have the camera up on a separate auction if you wish to get both from me.


The buyer pays insurance and shipping ($50.00 airmail from Hawaii) and I will accept Paypal payment, due within 2 days of close of auction or this item will be listed again.  Thanks for looking and good luck bidding. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
