Has anyone looked yet how it would fit in a 7D housing? The 5D mkiii design seems to have a lot more in common with the 7D in terms of button placements than the 5D mkii.

I would like to put down a negative rating for Paul6657. He put up a nauticam housing for sale and we agreed on a deal. He showed me the housing, upon my request, on skype. It all seemed reliable. However, he then wouldn't send me his banking details. He wouldn't reply to emails i sent and when i called him he said he had sent it multiple times over the internet (it doesn't seem very plausible to me for multiple emails to not be received (and yes, i checked my junk email)), and said that he would call me again that same day to give me the banking details. I never got a call back. After that i tried calling him everyday for about 5 days, but no one would answer the phone. When i posted something on the forumpost regarding the housing, he said he wasn't agreeing to the deal anymore we made because i wanted free shipping (which isn't true, we agreed to split shipping 50/50) he didn't want to ship out of the UK (although earlier he found out the pricing to ship to the Netherlands, so we could come to a definite price, so that's not true either). He never gave me any intention of not wanting to make the deal anymore, no emails, no phone call, nothing.

Now it all seems a bit shady to me. I am thinking it might be some sort of scam perhaps, of which he may have backed out due to me seeing the person on skype. I am also not sure if it is the actual Paul 6657, since he did have a positive rating on selling an item earlier with someone else. It may also not be a scam at all, but if that is the case, he should think of how he communicates with people regarding stuff he is trying to sell.

I am not trying to bash Paul6657, but the whole thing doesn't seem very trustworthy to me anymore.. Hope this information helps

Cheers, Daan

The reson i did not reply is that i decided that your offer was not wot i was hoping for and you wanted free postage also, and i did not want to post out of the uk


First of all, I find it very strange to agree to a deal and then suddenly decide to back out and then not to actually inform me about your intentions. Backing out of a deal is no reason to not reply and I don't think that is a very good way of doing business. Second of all, postage was not free, but split between the two of us, as we agreed. You also never mentioned that you did not want to send outside of the UK and I was very clear that it had to be sent to the Netherlands. You knew this as you had to sort out postage and see how expensive it was before you agreed.

Hi all,

I came to a deal with Paul on the Nauticam housing but something went wrong and I don't think it can be trusted. He showed me, on my request, the housing on skype, and we agreed on a price. However, he didn't send me his banking details. He said he tried emailing it several times and that something must have went wrong with email. I called him to see what was going on and he said he would call me back later that day. I never got a call back. I gave him a few more calls over the next couple of days to see what was going on, but he didn't answer his phone.

Don't know what is going on, but thought everyone else who is interested might wanted to know.

Cheers, Daan
