Topics I've Started

For Sale: Sola Nightsea Fluorescent LED light

17 September 2013 - 05:07 PM

I bought this Sola Nightsea LED light for a fluorescence project a few months ago.  I used it for one dive.  It worked perfectly, but the auto exposure of the GoPro Hero3 camera system I intended to use with it turned out not to be very fluorescent friendly.  Since then it's just been sitting around waiting for me to come up with a new project for it so I've decided to sell it.  It's like new, only been in the water on one dive.  It comes with the charger and with the clip on phosphor filter that gives surprisingly nice white light.  Will sell for half of retail price: $375.  Free shipping in US.  PayPal OK.


For Sale Aquatica D800 System

04 June 2013 - 11:22 PM

I'm selling my Aquatica D800 system because my RED has bumped it to the bench.  In addition to the housing and ports, I'm also selling my D800 body and lenses.  The D800 is the best DSLR I've ever  had, and I really hate to part with it, but I use all Canon glass on the RED, so it doesn't make sense to keep the D800 for a backup since I would have to maintain a full extra set of lenses.  I'll be better off with a backup 7D body that can use the same glass as the RED.

 

I bought the Aquatica housing and the D800 in August of last year and used it daily until January.  Since I started shooting with the RED in January, the D800 has been on the shelf.  So it has had less than 6 months of use.  There are no issues with the housing, never a hiccup.  I like it even better than my previous Aquatica 5DII housing which gave me 2 years of daily service until I switched to the D800.  The system has two ports, a standard macro flat port and an 8" Acrylic Dome with shade.  The dome is 3 years old but has only been in the water a few times so it is still in perfect condition (I was living in Lembeh Strait, so shooting mostly macro).  The housing has two Nikonos style sync ports.  It also has an electronic vacuum monitoring system installed.  It also has an Aquatica Aqua View Finder (straight version) which gives you a gorgeous huge image to compose with.  Also included is an Aquatica 18457 extension ring.  The storm case that I'm including to transport the system does not have custom cut foam for the housing, I'm just using pieces of foam to cushion everything.

 

Here's the housing portion of the system:

Aquatica D800 Housing

Aquatica Flat Port

Aquatica 8" Dome Port + Shade

Aquatica Aqua View Viewfinder

Vacuum System

Storm case

 

$4500.00 Plus your choice of shipping.

 

The D800 system includes the body with a 32GB CF card, a Nikkor 24-120 f4 ED VR Zoom (topside general shooting lens) and a Sigma 15mm f-2.8 that hasn't even been in the housing yet (already sold my 60mm macro).  The camera has less than 5600 shutter activations.  Comes with the normal accessories: battery, charger, USB 3 cable, manuals, strap and  body cap.

 

Here's the camera portion of the system:

 

Nikon D800 Body

Nikkor 24-120 f-4 ED VR Zoom

Sigma 15mm f-2.8 WA

32GB CF Memory card

Factory accessories

 

$3600 Plus your choice of shipping

 

I will sell the housing system and the camera system separately, but I won't break out individual items from either package.

 

If you want to buy the whole works, you can have it all for $8000 and I will pay ground shipping anywhere in the continental US.

 

The system is currently with me in Bali, but I will be returning to the US June 14 and bringing it with me.  If you want it in this part of the world, let me know before June 13.  Wetpixel members get first shot at this system.  When I get to the US everything that  hasn't sold is going on eBay with a reserve above the prices offered here.

Amphibico Phenom/Sony Z1U Priced to sell fast

28 November 2012 - 08:20 PM

I'm reducing the price of my Amphibico Phenom/Sony Z1U system for a quick sale. I'm getting a Scarlet-X system and need some extra cash fast. The exterior of the housing was recently refinished with a black wrinkle finish to match my Aquatica system. At that time, it was completely disassembled and all o-rings either serviced or replaced. It has not been in the water since refurb. The 94 deg. optic also had a fresh dome put on during refurb. It also has a flat port for macro that has only been on the system a couple times. It has an Xit404 Pentamirror for easy wide angle viewing of the top LCD. The system has two spare handles (one left, one right) and a pair of spare acrylic domes for the 94 deg optic (both in good shape with no scratches). It comes with Amphibico's custom fitted Pelican travel case. The camera is in good working order. It made one trip to Sony about 3 years ago for a new tape drive mechanism. It also had the viewfinder LCD changes at the same time because it was showing some burn marks. The camera's main LCD shows a few bright "speckles", but they are only visible when shooting a really dark area and haven't bothered me to the point that I felt like changing it out. I've included a photo of the LCD so that you can see it's not a major issue.
Included in the system is:

Phenom Z1 housing.
94 degree WA optic.
Flat port
2 spare dome ports
2 spare handles
Xit404 Pentamirror
Sony Z1U video camera
Some misc camera accessories (as pictured)
Fitted Pelican case

Complete package cost is US$2950. I will ship anywhere in the US for Free (by ground). If you need it faster, just pay the difference in shipping cost. It will ship with the housing stuff in the Pelican case and the camera and accessories in a separate box. I'm currently in Indonesia, but the camera and housing are in the US at my Son's house all packed and ready for shipment.

I will NOT split the system up, don't ask.

I will consider international sales, but shipping will be negotiable.

Sony Z1U/Amphibico Phenom System price reduced

27 October 2012 - 03:51 AM

I'm selling my trusty Amphibico Phenom/Sony Z1U system. I listed this awhile back but have had no serious offers, so I'm knocking $500 off the price. For the last couple years I've been shooting primarily with a Canon 5D MKII, and now upgrading to a Nikon D800, so it's clearly obvious to me that I won't be shooting the Phenom Z1 enough to make it worth keeping. The exterior of the housing was recently refinished with a black wrinkle finish to match my Aquatica system. At that time, it was completely disassembled and all o-rings either serviced or replaced. It has not been in the water since refurb. The 94 deg. optic also had a fresh dome put on during refurb. It also has a flat port for macro that has only been on the system a couple times. It has an Xit404 Pentamirror for easy wide angle viewing of the top LCD.
