*^* No longer available - going to Deedee in LA ***

Free to a good home - very old Oceanic 2003 Substrobe with EO-Nikonos adapter

Really, this is free (no shipping charge) to anyone in the USA. In keeping with the spirit of the season, this is a small way to help someone out. Just pay it forward ....

FS Nikon D60 in Ikelite Housing with dome and flat ports

21 July 2012 - 01:17 PM

eBay auction notice - this will be going on sale tonight at 10:30 EDT
Edit - The auction is now live, and will end next Saturday night: http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1555.l2649

Up for sale is a Nikon D60 camera combined with an Ikelite housing. Let this DSLR setup move your underwater photography to a new level. The system is in great condition and the only reason that I'm selling it is that I upgraded to a newer Nikon and housing.

The camera kit comes with everything that was originally provided by Nikon, even the original box. Major items include the D60 camera body, AF-S VR 18-55mm Nikon lens, two EN-EL9 batteries, charger, Nikon strap, USB cable, lens and body caps, owner's manuals, etc. A memory card is not included. This is a U.S. market camera kit that has 11,300 shutter actuations, and is rated for well over 100,000!

The Ikelite submersible housing comes complete with two ports, a 6" dome port for wide-angle applications and a flat port for close-up use. Both ports will work with the included 18-55mm lens as well as some other Nikon lenses (see the application page on the Ikelite website for additional lens compatibilities). The dome port has a few very minor scratches (barely visible) and the flat port as a quite noticeable scratch on the front (see photo). When used underwater these scratches optically disappear and do not affect the image. The housing allows access to all camera controls, and lens zoom function. Electronics built into the housing allow TTL flash synchronization with Ikelite Substrobes. Note that a strobe and synch cord are not included in this sale. The housing was serviced 17 months ago by Ikelite, and though it is still perfectly functional, I recommend a service before next use.

The following Ikelite parts are included:
Housing for Nikon D40/D40x/D60 DSLR camera, #6804.1
6" Dome Port #5503.50 & neoprene port cover
Flat Port #5502.41 & neoprene port cover
Zoom Clamp #9059.8 and Zoom Sleeve #0073
Special Zoom Clamp/Sleeve #5509.28

I take very good care of my equipment and am confident that you will get many happy years of picture taking with this camera and housing.

All this stuff will be up for auction on eBay starting at 10:30 EST. This is NO RESERVE, someone will get a great deal! This equipment cost over $2,400 when new - enjoy your savings.
