  1. The dome port, lens, and gear have been sold. Thanks for looking.
  2. Hi, Rhiannon. Thanks but this gear was just spoken for. If the deal falls through, I will post a note to you immediately. Best -- George
  3. Hi, Mrchen911. My dome won't work for you. Sea & Sea makes 3 very similar compact glass dome ports for fisheye lenses. Models are designated 100 M (#30134), 100S (#30133), and 100L (#30135). These domes are all described here: http://www.seaandsea.jp/products/digital_slr/port/001.html#30116 The one I have is the 100M (#30134) and it is specifically for the Tokina AT-X 107 DX Fisheye 10-17mm lens that I also would like to sell. It will accomodate either the Nikon-compatible Tokina or the Canon-compatible Tokina 10-17, but it won't handle either Nikon-branded or Canon-branded OEM lenses. You'd need either the #30133 for the Nikon 10.5mm fisheye, or the #30135 for the Nikon 8-15mm fisheye (and the appropriate zoom gear) if you want to stick to Nikon-branded lenses. Thanks and good luck -- George
  4. There's been no action on this dome and lens so I'm wondering if the price is the problem. Is 50% off retail unreasonable? Anyone out there interested in this but can't afford it? Please get in touch and let me know what you think is reasonable and affordable for you. Thanks -- George
  5. Hi, all. I bought this beautiful glass dome and lens combo new in June last year to shoot on a new Sea & Sea MDX-80D housing. A couple of months ago an old friend decided to quit u/w photography and gave me his fisheye lens and another glass port, and I don't need to own two sets of fisheye lenses, zoom gears, and ports. The Optical Dome Port II sells for $1030 at Backscatter, and the Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 fisheye for Canon sells for $469. The zoom gear costs $220. There's no point in separating them, so I'll sell them as a set only. I'm asking $860 plus insured shipping. That's half the retail cost, so please don't bother trying to haggle on this one. Below are links to a few of my shots taken with this dome and lens. https://www.flickr.com/photos/firststage/43257166981/in/photolist-28UuhFP https://www.flickr.com/photos/firststage/29387465798/in/photolist-LLSrJN https://www.flickr.com/photos/firststage/29387476868/in/photolist-LLSv2E Thanks for looking. Please let me know if you have any questions.
  6. Hi, Webrix. Here's a little personal experience with metal housings that might be of interest. I'm shooting a Canon 80D in a Sea & Sea housing, and I did compare its "feel" to a Nauticam housing for the same camera. The Nauticam housing seemed well made and I've had good luck with another Nauticam housing for a different camera. However, the Nauticam housing for the 80D had some control and camera positioning issues that were just plain "fiddly," whereas everything in the Sea & Sea 80D housing fit the camera perfectly. The controls feel a lot better to me on the Sea & Sea, no learning curve, almost like using the camera on land without a housing. The Sea & Sea housing seems like an industrial or professional-grade product compared to the Nauticam, which feels to me like more of a consumer-grade product. I know, this is all very personal, so I would encourage you to get both housings in hand, even if you have to go through the hassle of buying both and then returning one "like new" for a refund. I'd also suggest adding up the cost of all the pieces you'd like to shoot, including camera body, lenses, gears and ports, before you make a final decision. Some housing components--especially high-quality glass dome ports--can be surprisingly expensive new, but are sometimes available used in very good condition. As the high-end market moves toward mirrorless cameras, people will sell off perfectly usable SLR bodies and lenses just to have the latest, greatest stuff. For example, I've got a sweet 8-15mm Canon fisheye lens that is likely to stay among the best of the best (optically) no matter what other newer glass comes along with the latest systems. Hope this is helpful info but feel free to PM me if you want more details. What I have works great for me but again, how a camera and housing feel in hand is very personal.
  7. Hi, fellow divers. As of October 31, 2018, all three of these optical cables have been sold. Thanks for looking.
  8. As of October 29, 2018, I still have one of the Sea & Sea FO cables left. Price is $25 plus $7 for insured priority shipping within the US. First come, first served...
  9. I've sold one of the Sea & Sea FO cables. I still have the other one, plus the new Bluewater cable.
  10. Hi, all. I bought an LED TTL trigger with my new housing and it requires extra-thick, extra-expensive Sea & Sea FO cables. I have two like-new medium-length Sea & Sea FO cables with 90 degree Sea & Sea tips, and one new Bluewater FO cable with straight tips and removable Sea & Sea adapters. They are in perfect condition. If you are not using an LED trigger, these should work just fine for you (if you don't need specialty tips). I've been using them with a Nauticam housing and Sea & Sea strobes and have never had a misfire. Will sell them for $25 each or $70 for the lot if you pay for postage from Santa Cruz, California. That's less than half the retail price.
  11. Hi, Timz. I just saw your post about the Nauticam/E-PL5. It's been 4 months since you asked, so maybe you've already found what you want. If not, maybe I can help. I'm moving back to a (big and heavy) DSLR rig, and I'd like to sell my Nauticam setup. I have the housing, an E-PL5 body, 14-42mm zoom lens with Nauticam zoom gear, 60mm Oly macro lens, and 8mm Panasonic fisheye lens, along with a Nauticam macro port 65, and the Nauticam 4.33 dome port for the fisheye, and ULCS metal tray and handle. I'd like to get 1/2 the original purchase price plus actual shipping cost. Purchase price was 4314 USD, so this is for sale for 2157 USD. Everything is in good condition and has been properly maintained. Here's a link to recent shots; most were taken with the Nauticam E-PL5 setup: /www.flickr.com/photos/firststage/albums Would this be of any interest? Best -- George
  12. Hey, Joe, please ignore previous post. I was pleased to discover today that I do not need a shorter port for my new lens, so I am not going to sell my Port 65. I wish you the best of luck finding another one. Best -- George
  13. Hi, Joe. It's been a while since your original post. Are you still looking for a Nauticam Macro Port 65? I sold my Oly 60 mm lens (just wasn't my style of shooting) so now I'd like to sell the port. It's in perfect condition, no scratches on either the glass or the black body. Please let me know if this is of interest.
  14. Hi, fellow u/w photographers. I recently sold my Recsea/FIX S90 metal housing to a friend who doesn't need the two wet lenses I had, so they're available at half the retail price. I bought them from Backscatter and they're both in excellent condition. Here's a link to some sample shots. I took all of the wides and macro shots in the first two sets (Little Cayman and Grand Cayman, and Yap) with these lenses and the Canon S90: www.flickr.com/photos/firststage.sets The UWL-04 ultra wide (weitwinkel) Angle Fisheye comes with a 67/52 mm adapter so it can be attached to any port that accepts either of those sizes. It has a 165 degree field of view. The FIX Easy Close Up 2 Element macro set screws into 52 mm threads so that both of its lenses can be swung out of the way when not in use, or swung in front of the lens individually or together for super-macro shots. Either one will fit in the Inon lens holder "caddy" that attaches to a standard Ultralight Control Systems arm. The UWL-04 currently sells for $425. It's yours with the adapter for $200. The Easy Closeup 2-element lens set originally sold for $200. It's yours for $100. The Inon Lens Holder/Caddy originally cost $64. I'll sell it for $32. Prices are firm, and payment is accepted via PayPal only. I'll cover ground UPS or USPS shipping within the USA. If you're overseas, please tell me how you'd like things shipped and I'll send you a quote for actual shipping costs. Thanks for looking!
