In Topic: Light & Motion Mako PC 1000 Housing/Camera FOR SALE

19 November 2009 - 08:31 AM

You said it right: few years ago (or some more years!)

But today, the PC1000 is an old cam, no HD, the standard in the lights are LEDs etc.
So you can't compare the prices today with the good old times!

That's not against you. I see it very often in all this forums that everyone would sell his old stuff for a maximum of money! That's the good thing in ebay, there you find market prices!


Are LED's better than HID or just another gimmick to make the upgrade market blossom? I believe it is about 6 years old (ancient!!) I have been skiing for 30 years and in all those years and all the gimmicks they come up with to entice you to buy new, only 2 where worth the upgrade to new skis. but I digress. Do you have an offer? I think the econnomy has driven the secondary market down but prices on new are astronomical as always. Let me ask you this, why are you then looking at old U/W housing/cameras??

Cheers

Thanks

Hi,
why are the offers of the housings here so expensive?
The last Mako PC1000 housings were about 1000 - 1500 USD in Ebay!

Is there a possibility to talk about the price?


A few years back I sold a Mako PC110 for about $3500, that's when I purchased the PC1000, I was emailed that web page on eBay by a potential buyer, I think the guy under-priced his outfit by a long shot. Somebody did luck out IF it was what he said. Please read carefully all that comes with this outfit. Extra topside lenses/mics/lights for the camera. Batteries are an issue with the Mako's, I found an 11.1 lit ion for the Mako light system at B&H this last Summer, so I have 2 good 11.1 and the Stingray light pods with the Multi charger for most Light & Motion batteries. They told me they gave me a smoken deal on the pods/batteries & charger for Over $600, so without the smoke probably around $1000. They do not make the 11.1 lit ion anymore but with this outfit you are set for the future. They are longer than the housing but not to bad. An equivalent set up (except in HD, which is not a given that it produces a much better picture as far as I am concerned) would cost you $7000-$9000. There is another fellow from Germany that is interested and I just emailed him that I would sell for $3000.

Cheers
