Items Still Available

  • Nikon 85mm F/3.5 DX VR Macro lens - $300
    Few people know about this lens from Nikon. Get the advantages of a 60mm and a 105mm in a compromising 85mm lens. I've taken a bunch of great macro shots with this lens! It's in perfect condition, no scratches on the glass itself and only very minor signs of use on the external body. Includes all original packaging, lens caps and lens hood.
  • Aquatica Macro Dome Port (#18428, for Nikon 85mm) - $270
    This dome port can be used with either the 60mm or 85mm lens without requiring an extension ring. Does not allow for manual focus, but the Nikon lenses focus so fast that it's not a problem! Has minor signs of wear on the outside of the body but nothing on the glass that would interrupt your image quality. Includes the neoprene cover and comes in the original packaging.
  • Aquatica Tokina 10-17mm zoom gear - $100
    This zoom gear mounts on the Tokina 10-17mm fisheye and allows you to zoom the lens while in the housing. Perfect condition.
  • Aquatica port extension ring for mini dome port - $170
    This is the standard Aquatica extension ring that is required to use the Tokina 10-17mm with the mini dome port. Perfect condition.

Stewart - thanks for your great thoughts.

So continuing on the same line -- if the extension ring wasn't the problem contributing to the lock out that occurred both times with the wide angle setup in place, then what causes this? It ONLY happened with wide angle and it happened both times I used that lens -- IE no successful wide angle dives deeper than 30 feet at all. If it was an error with how I had the housing setup, then the problem should also have occurred when it was in macro setup. In one instance I actually just changed the port and lens without removing the camera from the housing and had a successful macro dive previously.

AKA - still looking for plausible situations (either user error with lack of extension ring or otherwise) that led to the lock-out and reset of the camera. What causes a Nikon D7000 to freak out so badly it wants you to set the language, date time etc all over?
