FS; Aquatica AD7000 Housing with macro port

26 October 2013 - 03:33 PM

I have a AD7000 HOUSING SN;20068OPT-007 in good used condition serviced this year and used twice after the service(this is partly the reason for selling).

 

It also has an- AF macro port 18428 for the 60mm lenses

                     -Extension ring 18453 for 105mm 2.8D lens

                    -macro close up lens ring #19350 with the 10+ Diopter

 

also have the XIT404 turtle gears RFN60TK, GFAQ2T, RFN105TK to suit the 60mm 2.8d and the 105mm 2.8 to manually focus using the zoom knob on the housing

 

this cost me over $4000aud and is a cheap entry into dslr underwater- you can get a nikon d7000 for $700 now.

 

Serious offers considered. will ship overseas at the buyers exxpense- in Australia now.

 

Damon ps- I am looking at an FX setup(800d)- want to do wide angle in the future/this coming xmas holidays.

Good news for Sharks in New Caledonia

24 April 2013 - 04:20 PM

People looking to support conservation issues, could do worse then dive travel to countries which implement and enforce laws to protect- consumer statistics tend rule the actions of business.

 

New Caledonia has taken the necessary steps to save sharks in the area, read here;

Flasher for anchoring up point- Boats

19 April 2013 - 06:21 PM

I am set up one of these -sundance teaser http://www.boonebait...x&cPath=507_511 - to hang under the boat at 5M. It is set off the bouy on the jesus christ line off the rear quarter bollard/railing- thus increase the overall area of "boat awareness", very handy on new sites for coming immediately back to the boat position, without using expensive sonic transmitters/receivers.

 

It will aid in finding the boat position as the light carries well at that hieght in the water column in good viz , without having to look up so much, do safety stops and also provide a snap position to fasten camera for easier retrieval. Having a bungee cord attached to the flasher to be a shock absorber for any wave motion for the camera snap clip.

 

Also it will attact pelagic fish as a bonus.

 

Hope some find this idea useful.
