FS: Subal D3/D3x housing type 4, GS-180 viewfinder, Subal DP-FE4 dome

23 July 2014 - 04:59 AM

I have a gently used Subal ND3 housing that will work with Nikon D3 and D3x. It will not work with the D3s however Subal makes a separate back plate that will adapt its support of the D3s. It has two Nikonos flash bulkheads and a Backscatter vacuum air lock. It has never been flooded and has no damage. It has the latest Type 4 port mount. It also has the Subal GS-180 viewfinder. It magnifies the cameras stock viewfinder and allows you to stay 3-4 inches away from the back plate of the housing which in turn gives your regulator more space and allows you to seal the viewfinder against your mask for a clearer image on the viewfinder. It also has Subal's DP FE4 Dome Port which is one of the best optics in the business. This 8" cross section is ideal for fisheye lenses, ultra-wide (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) zooms, and wide angle primes used with both full frame & cropped sensor cameras. The dome comes in its original box has s neoprene cover and no scratches. I purchased all from Ryan Canon at Reef Photo. I have an extra O ring for the housing I will throw in. Retail for this package is around $8200.00. There is a used one at one of the big retailers now for 4200 with viewfinder only. My price for the package is 4500.00 plus shipping.

Advice needed for Subal ND800 and lens port combo

20 July 2014 - 01:30 PM

I recently purchased a used Subal ND800 housing for use with my D800e. I have been shooting a D3x in a Subal ND3 housing. I have the Zen 230 dome and the Subal DP-FE4.


Recommendations for:


Nikon 16-35 still the Zen 230 with 2+ Diopter on D800?


Sigma 15mm  Zen 230? Subal DP-FE4? 


Tokina 10-17 shot at 16mm, Zen 230? Subal DP-FE4?


I appreciate the feedback, based on posts here the Sigma 15 seems to be a bit more popular than the Nikon 16.
