In Topic: Essex Surf Housing for Canon 5DII + 3 ports, excellent condition

02 February 2011 - 01:42 AM

Really keen on this, paypal is fine also.


I purchased this waterhousing from Mike Waggoner of Essex waterhousings over this past summer. The housing itself, made for a Canon 5DMkII, was formerly owned by John Bilderback, the senior photographer for Surfer Magazine. The kit I am selling includes 3 ports:

-Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L IS Zoom port (full zoom control - this port was formerly owned by JB, and in fact, since I did not have the lens, I never got this port wet)
-Canon 24-105 f/4 L IS Zoom port (full zoom control - this port was made new for me, and has been wet probably a half dozen times)
-Dome port for 15mm fisheye (This port can also fit a number of other shorter lenses -- I only got it wet one time)

When I purchased the housing, Mike also put a brand new 2-stage pistol grip on it -- which is SWEET if you have never used one.

The new price of this kit is $2575 - I paid $1500. Loved every minute using it, but I live in New England and with the water frigidly cold 9 months out of the year, I'm just not using it enough.

If you are interested, make an offer. I will consider anything over $1000.

Here is a teaser photo of the whole kit: Click the photo or go here http://www.dustintur.../essex-housing/ to see the whole thing.

An excellent kit as you can see, and something you will have a lot of fun with. I used this to shoot a few client projects, and the results were awesome. If you visit the following site, soposup.com, virtually all of the images in the header were taken with this set up (refresh to get a new image). PM me if you have questions or would like to make an offer! I can ship anywhere, and I can accept a card through PayPal.
