Nikon D300 Ikelite Package for sale

04 December 2014 - 11:09 AM

Back in 2008 I was bitten by the photography bug and bought a lot of gear, and dived for a few weeks with it while on vacation.  The last time I went diving was my honeymoon in August of 2009, where we did a liveaboard on the Archipelago II in Indonesia.  I had some amazing pictures taken and some amazing dives, but shortly thereafter, the children started being born.  And that has put the kabash on the diving.


Anyway, that is the back story.  I have equipment that I spent a ton of money on, and which is not going to be used any time soon and I thought I would offer it up to someone who wanted to pay a fair price.  It is all located in Yonkers, NY (just north of the Bronx) and I would ideally like to have some one come and cart it away (Fortunately, I have a large camera backpack that houses it all (other than the dome) which will make that a bit easier.


So what do I have?  From the original invoice:


Ikelite Housing for Nikon D300 digital camera                            $1,424.95
For Tokina 10-17mm lens:                                                      
Ikelite 8" Dome port w/shade                                                      $ 379.95
Ikelite Super Wide Body Extension Ring                                     $ 117.95
For 60mm lens 
Ikelite SLR Flat Port, 4.125"                                                         $141.95
Strobe & arm:
Ikelite Substrobe DS-125 Strobe with Diffuser                              $759.95
Ikelite DS-125 Battery                                                                   $125.00
Ikelite Substrobe Smart Charger 1.5hr for DS-125 & DS-200       $94.95
Ultralight Base Adaptor for NEW Ikelite SLR Release Hndl.          $23.95
Ultralight Ikelite DS-125, DS-50, DS-51 Adaptor                           $22.95
Ultralight 8" Double Ball Arm                                                         $47.95 
Ultralight 5" Double Ball Arm                                                         $29.95
3 Ultralight Fisheye Clamps (15 degrees side movement)            $89.95       
Ikelite Digital TTL Single Sync Cord to one DS Strobe                  $94.95
I was not planning to sell the lenses but given how little use they get, I could be persuaded to do so.
Anyway, the total package without the lenses cost me $3,372.30 as per the above.  I have NO IDEA what it is worth on the secondary market, so feel free to try and take advantage of me, just know that I'm not committing to sell for dirt cheap and may consider donating it to charity and taking a tax deduction. :)
Everything worked fine the last time I used it.  I would question the longevity strobe battery at this point as it hasn't been charged in over 3 years (I used to charge it every month but I used to do a lot of things, including diving and taking pictures!)
I am writing this from the office and don't have photographs but everything is more than serviceable given the light usage and if anybody is interested in a photograph of the stuff, I will break it out over a weekend and take some pictures.  Ideally, you live locally, can make an offer contingent on your seeing it and satisfying yourself with the merchandise, and you can pick it up at your convenience.
Less ideally, you want to pay for it all and make me box it up and ship it to you.  I really don't want to do that though because I am very lazy.
