1) Aquatica A7D- Housing is in good working condition with some minor fading of printing where the buttons are. The viewfinder has a small chip on the inside, but nothing that blocks the viewfinder in the camera.

2) Macro Port- Used for 60mm & 100mm lenses. Good working condition. The port has some minor abrasions where the MacroMate sits but nothing in the center that would optically effect a picture.

8) Aquatica 9.25 Inch Mega Dome- Used with Tokina 10-17mm, Tokina 11-16mm, Canon16-35mm, Canon 17-40mm, Canon 8-15mm and other lens. The dome has some small abrasions on the sides of the dome. Nothing that I can find in my pictures. There is a water stain that is hard to see. Its 1mm big towards the front of the dome. It has not effected any of my pictures. It can sometimes effect video if you are pointed towards the sun, in which most particles will become illuminated at that point anyway.

9) 6 inch Aquatica Acrylic Dome- was used as a backup dome. there is a small knick on the dome that can be rotated to the bottom of the housing and should not effect anything. It has not effected any of my pictures.

10) 4 inch Aquatica Glass mini dome- Works great for close focus wide angle shots that are in tight spaces. Perfect condition.

11) Aquatica 16.5mm Ext Ring- Used for all 3 domes with 10-17mm, 8-15mm. Good working condition with surface scratches.

12) Aquatica 54.5mm Ext Ring- Used with 16-35mm, 11-20mm, 17-40mm, 100mm+1.4tele., 8-15mm+1.4tele.

Gates VL-24 LED x 2 For Sale

22 March 2014 - 05:09 PM

I am looking to sell my Gates VL-24s. They are the best(my opinion) video lights out there right now.


Backscatter's Description:
Neutrally buoyant with a blazing 6000 lumen output.
These lights were developed in collaboration between Gates and Subaqua Imaging Systems whose expertise breached all barriers in size / efficiency / light output. The VL24 is suitable for broadcast / cinema and un-tethers professional cameramen from surface supplied lighting. The 6000 lumen output make them an essential tool for large sensor (small depth of field) camera systems such as Red and DSLR

​Please contact me for pricing only if you are seriously interested.
