In Topic: D800 Video Report--FCP Color Correction: Yes; Filter: No

Exciting! Something else I didn't know about. Thank heavens for the coming holidays. I hope to take my learning from graduation from Tom's Boot Camp to the next level. The video scopes tab might be a fun place to start.

I don't use a second monitor. I have a recent model 27" iMac, which gives me a fair bit or real estate. I've considered a second monitor from time to time, but I'm not a film or photo professional. Also, the best choice for me probably--a 27' thunderbolt display--is due for refreshment soon, according to MacRumors. So if I do jump, it won't likely be until next year.

Drew:

No, I didn't get to play much. I was only there a week, and this was the first time in the water with the new rig. So I was doing lots of experimenting. I'll put fooling with manual WB on the list for the next trip in the spring.

I am using FCP 7, and am still knocking down the (steep) learning curve. Where can I make that cyan hue adjustment?

A sale is pending on the housing only. I will post here when the sale is complete or if it is not completed, either way.

The D700 body is still for sale: $1,800, or make an offer.

I am sweetening my original offer.

I will add to the camera body and housing above an Aquatica macro port (with focusing knob) and neoprene cover at no increase in price. The port is in excellent condition and was purchased from B&H at the same time as the housing:

So, I am offering the Nikon D700, the compatible housing and the macro port all still for $3,500. At current retail prices for the port and cover, that’s more than a $500 price reduction.

Details about the Port

The port is Aquatica model 18426. It is equipped with a focusing knob for manual focusing with an appropriate focusing ring for the lens (not included), but the knob is unnecessary if you prefer to use lenses in autofocus mode. This port is compatible without extension rings with Nikon’s AF-S Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED Macro Autofocus Lens and others. Add an extension (not included), and you can use it with several other lenses, including Nikon’s world famous Micro 105.

The port glass is flawless. I am the original and only owner.

Just add your 60 mm Micro and you’re ready to dive.


OPTION: Nikon’s AF-S Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED Macro Autofocus Lens

Don’t have a 60 mm Micro? OK, I’ll sell mine for $500 additional. It is in mint condition and has been used for only one dive trip. I’ve had it for less than three months. I bought it new from B&H in August, and it is a US market product (i.e., not gray market). Purchase includes lens in the original box with carry bag, lens cap, end cap and lens shade.

Additional Details about the D700 above
  • I am the original and only owner.
  • It is a USA market product (not gray market)
  • I purchased it from B&H
  • It has only 9,961 shutter releases (expected life of 150,000)
  • Used only by me as a hobbyist. I am not a professional.

Additional Details about the Aquatica Housing above
  • I am the original and only owner.
  • I purchased it from B&H

Recap: for $3,500--
  • Nikon D700 body
  • Aquatica housing
  • Aquatica macro port
  • Add a Nikon 60 mm macro lens for an extra $500


Contact me via PM or at my email address, rascolpa at cinci dot rr dot com with any questions or requests for additional photos.

Make me an offer. The worst thing that can happen is that I say no.
