F/S Bluefin Housing Canon HFG10/Fathoms Wide Angle

14 June 2014 - 07:19 PM

For Sale Light and Motion Bluefin housing and system.

All items are in very good shape and the system has been well taken care of all lenses are free of scratching. Since the housing fits multiple cameras, even the up to date Canon Vixia models like the HF-G20, I am selling the HF-G10 camera on Ebay. AllowingFeel free to buy that too, be sure to PM me. A few videos with this set up can be seen at:

All items can be sold separately, in combination or as a whole package if you desire. I will price them separately, if bought as a package I’ll pay for shipping in the USA. All “MSRPs” are current market prices.

Housing: Has been professionally tapped with an E/O connection for audio in or other E/O accessories. This accessory came from Ocean Technology Systems for direct full-face mask audio input for a documentary we are filming. If you don’t want to use it, the wires stay out of the way easily. But it’s a great addition to up your production value in the future. Additionally, the on/off/mode button on the monitor plate takes a good push to turn on/off. L&M said this was fine and did not need to be replaced. ULCS arms pictured are not included.

Lenses: Both lenses are in perfect optical condition, no scratching. There is minimal cosmetic wear on the body of the Wide Angle lens. The Fathoms lens is the new model that works with the 2010 and beyond Sony Bluefin housings and all Canon Bluefin housings now.

Great White Shark in Ventura

30 September 2013 - 04:58 PM

textile t    and I (brothers) had the awesome experience to film a Great White Shark feeding while en route from Santa Cruz Island clean up dive.  Youtube or Vimeo for your viewing enjoyment. This is a rare occasion, especially on the So Cal Coast. We were going to snorkel with the carcass and an 8 ft blue shark, until the big boy showed up. This shark probably had 10 feet on me, and we estimated the whale carcass to be about 30 feet, so you decided how big the shark was. Thanks for watching!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Divers for the non profit group, Ocean Defenders Alliance, were treated to a surprise on the way home from two amazing clean up dives in the national marine sanctuary and national park of the Channel Islands near Ventura, Ca. 
 
A VERY LARGE GREAT WHITE SHARK was filmed by the group feeding on a juvenile dead Whale, approximately 30 feet long. Video from both above and below the waterline can be seen here: 
 
In addition, Ocean Defenders Alliance (ODA) has a news worthy campaign itself. After securing tedious, but necessary, permits. ODA has been authorized to work within the National Marine Sanctuary of the Channel Islands National Park. ODA's mission is to remove abandoned "ghost" fishing gear that continues to fish once it's been lost. Volunteer divers protect their own backyard by diving to remove the debris. In a time when regulations restrict even the removal of trash and NPS is cutting staff, patrols, and budgets, ODA steps in to fill a much needed void to protect our oceans. More video is available of the efforts if needed.
Thanks!
