For Sale: Nauticam enhancing straight viewfinder for DSLR Housing

26 August 2014 - 01:59 PM



If you've been lusting after a 180 degree magnifying viewfinder for your DSLR housing, here's one at a bargain price. This finder is bright and sharp, can be adjusted for your eyesight, and with an adapter (not included) can fit Ikelite, Aquatica, Sea and Sea, and Nexus housings.  (Adapter isn't necessary for Nauticam housings.)  


The cost new is $1150.  I'm selling this gently used one for $575.  


If you also need a Nauticam housing for the Nikon D7000 see my post elsewhere on this board and perhaps we can work out a deal for both.

For Sale: Nauticam housing system for Nikon D7000

17 August 2014 - 10:01 AM

I’ve moved to a new system, and am selling my Nauticam housing for the Nikon D7000.  This is the original version, NA-D7000.  Nauticam housings actually handle better than the camera, and look like a fine Swiss watch inside. Included is a moisture detector, hardwire strobe port with Nikonos style connector, and two fiber optic ports.  Everything is in excellent condition.    

Also included is a Subal 8 inch glass dome port with a Nauticam adapter, and a Subal flat port with a focus knob, also with a Nauticam adapter.  Additionally I’m including two Nauticam extension rings: 50mm and 20mm.  This system will accommodate the following lenses:  Nikon10mm fisheye, Tokina 10-17mm fisheye, Nikon 12-24, Sigma 17-70, Nikon 60mm macro, and Nikon 105mm macro.  Essentially all lenses needed for underwater photography from pygmy seahorses to whales.

Also included are Nauticam zoom gears for the Tokina 10-17mm, Nikon 12-24, and Sigma 17-70mm lenses, and manuals for the housing and accessories.

The dome port has a crack in the side of the shade that has been patched.  The dome itself is pristine, with no scratches.  

Note:  The camera is not included.

The original retail price of the system described was $6300.  I’m asking $3000.

Please contact me off list if interested.

FS: Nikon D3100 and Ikelite Housing

01 December 2013 - 01:46 PM

Here’s an economical way to upgrade to DSLR underwater photography and video.  It’s a complete system.  All you need to do is add a strobe and go diving.

The system was lightly used by my wife.  It consists of a Nikon D3100 camera, Nikon 18-55mm lens, Ikelite housing with 6” dome port matched to the lens, tray with two handles, and a strobe cord with Ikelite connector at the camera end and an Inon connector at the strobe end.  Manual, spare batteries, and charger are included.  The housing alone costs $1400 new without the port.  This entire system can be yours for $775.  Please contact me off list.
