WTB: Panasonic 8mm fisheye & Nauticam 4.33" dome port

14 May 2014 - 07:53 AM

Might be a long shot, but would be interested to hear from anyone looking to sell a Panasonic 8mm fisheye lens for a m4/3 set up, a Nauticam 4.33" dome port, or both.

Cheers!


For Sale: Canon S90, FIX90 Aluminium Housing & Inon UFL-165AD Fisheye Lens

13 May 2014 - 02:52 AM

Hey all,

 

I'm selling my current compact camera set up to upgrade into the M4/3 world. Great for someone starting out or someone that just wants a great little compact system on the cheap!

Included:

 

- Canon S90 compact camera. 

- Fisheye FIX90 Aluminium housing 

- Inon UFL 165-AD fisheye lens.

- Bayonet-style adaptor to attach fisheye to housing (forgotten exact the model, perhaps 28AD?)

 

- Paperwork, charger, 3 batterries (x1 Canon original, x2 3rd party).

 

This set up has been fantastic for me starting out in the world of underwater photography. All of it is in great, working condition. Never flooded. Last used in April this year with whale sharks in Tanzania. See gear & sample photos below - specks on the gear itself are just dust.

 

Note with the fisheye lens:

There are two tiny (about 2mm) scratches on the lens from its previous owner, however they do not effect image quality and have never shown up on a photo I have taken (thousands). I wasn't able to get a good photo to depict them, just to illustrate how insignificant they are...but I want any buyers to be aware of this.

 

Additionally, the tiny screw in the bayonet mount was lost during a trip to Indonesia. Consequently, whilst the mount still works a treat, it does rotate when you attach and remove the lens. The mount won't come off and it will not rotate during a dive unless you twist and turn it yourself - the problem is easily solved by attaching the lens before the dive, lining it up properly using the LCD screen, and off you go. Perhaps you can source a little replacement screw to rectify this, however it was never much of an issue for me - an inconvenience if nothing else. 

 

Anyone that has done some research on using this lens with this housing will know it is fantastic for wide-angle (it has been used by me primarily for photographing mantas and whale sharks). However, with this set up there is slight vignetting, which all but disappears when zoomed in one-click.

 

Below are some reviews of the housing and the fisheye set up:

I am UK based. Would be willing to sell the lens separately to the housing+camera if people wish. Otherwise looking for £550 for whole set-up + shipping/postage.
 

Thanks!

 


WTB: Inon UWL H100 28M67 (Type 2) Wet Lens

Hey folks,

Currently looking to upgrade to a better underwater camera system. Was wondering if anyone has a Inon UWL H100 28M67 (Type 2) Wet Lens they're looking to sell? Alternatively, I may be interested in a Type 1, as I've heard that a ring set available online and convert the Type 1 into a Type 2 (although please someone correct me if I'm mistaken).

 

Message me here with a price you're looking for, or PM me.

Thanks!
