  1. Hi all, Hoping to source a few components if anyone here has these available. Hoping to find a used Canon 16-35 f4 L and a Nauticam Extension Ring 70 (21170). Also hoping to find an 8.5" Acrylic Port (18802) as well as zoom gears (19527) and (19548). Let me know if you have any/all of these items and what you'd want to part with them. Feel free to PM me or reply here. Thanks!
  2. Selling my beloved D800/D800e and corresponding housings. Both housings are still in good, working order although cosmetically they're far from new. Hoping to sell as full rigs, or better yet as a full collection, but would be willing to part things out depending on interest. Message me what you're looking for and I'll let you know what I hope to get for it. Ikelite housings for Nikon D800/D800e : Both base trays have varying levels of corrosion that do not affect camera performance. One is 7/10, One is 4/10. Ugly still gets the job done. Two Ikelite 8" acrylic domes (5516.81). Both port shades have scoring on them but the acrylic is still in good shape. Both include neoprene port cover Nikon D800e (50k actuations) D800 (110k actuations). D800 is rated to 200,000 actuations, but post mid-life will certainly be reflected in price. 7 EN-EL15 Batteries and grip Nikkor 16-35 f4 in great shape. Still tack sharp and clear. ($600) Tokina 10-17 3.5-4.5 DX Nikon Mount lens ($200) Also tack sharp and clear. Zoom belt is a little loose Ikelite port extensions available: 5510.11 / 5510.16 / 5510.22 / 5510.28 / 5510.50 Various zoom belts, gears, o-rings and knobs/toggles Also have an Ikelite to sea and sea dual strobe sync cable Thanks for browsing, feel free to reach out if you'd like any more info or to see additional images of any specific item.
  3. Hi all, Hoping to source components here before buying them outright if anyone here has these available. Looking to buy a Nauticam Extension Ring 70 (21170) and 8" Acrylic Port (18802) as well as zoom gears (19527) and (19548) and two canon EF to RF adapters. Im also looking for a used Canon 16-35 f4 as well. Let me know if you have any/all of these items and what you'd want to part with them. Feel free to PM me or reply here. Thanks!
  4. Hi All, Looking for a used Nauticam 8.5" acrylic port (18802) without noticeable scuffs or scratches on the port as well as the extension ring 20 (21120) with lock. Zero concern about cosmetic blemishes on the shade/port extension provided it doesn't affect functionality. If you have either/both of these items send me a DM with your price + shipping to the US. Thanks!
  5. Hi All, I'm selling my used Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 DX AF NH Fisheye after a few years of dutiful service. The glass is pristine, and autofocus functions as good as new. It's definitely not as glamorous as it once was, and would be a great lens for someone looking for an awesome close focus crop sensor fisheye for cheap. The rear cap below the zoom belt is a little on the loose side, but it doesn't affect the lens performance. $10 to ship domestic US. PayPal preferred. Price is firm
  6. Hi All, It's time to retire the Ikelite housing for my Nikon D7000. It's just sitting on the shelf collecting dust. It's been recently serviced, although she's not much to look at. Hoping to find someone dedicated to their D7000 that wants a cheap housing to get started with or as a backup. Didn't opt for an electronics repair as the repair cost and service exceeded my estimate for the total value of the housing. It's bone dry, all of the buttons and toggles actuate smoothly and function as they should. I have a standard 6" port that I'll throw in if need be, and a myriad of port extensions if anyone looking has the Ikelite 8" acrylic. If you're interested, make me an offer and we'll go from there. I'll be happy to post images if anyone is interested as well. Cheers

  10. Wow! Thanks Tim, Mike and Kaj for the great advice. I'll be sure to post a link to the video wherever it ends up. You guys will be the first to know.
  11. Hi Wetpixel! Ok Ladies and Gents, I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I managed to get some pretty outrageous footage recently and am completely confused as to how I should proceed. I've got about 30minutes of misc. dolphin behavior, from cute and serene to aggressive and active. All shot in 1080HD/60fps using the raw WB capture settings with a Hero3. There's only one video I've ever seen that's even similar (see below) and I'm excited, but nervous. I know that if I put it up on the web it will garner a lot of views, but it'll be less attractive for someone looking for exclusivity and originality. Does anyone on here know any stock agents that they would recommend/trust to see this end up in the right hands? I've attached a screenshot from the clip, but with a 1000kb limit its a pretty poor representation. I'd love to see this end up a part of a much bigger ocean project or documentary, and it'd be great to make a little coin to kickstart the next adventure/project. This is clearly a wild shot in the dark, but there are some of, if not the most talented UW artists on the planet on here and I'm hoping someone would be willing to steer me in the right direction. From what I've heard, there's a $2,500 licensing cap with GoPro, so that may not the best avenue. Thanks in advance for your consideration and time, Jim Ward
  12. Hi everyone, I have an issue that's probably more common sense than I'll admit to myself. I've just purchased an Ikelite 5510.22 port body to replace the smaller 5510.16 that I had been using and I'm stumped. I assumed that the body would mate to my 8" port just as the .16 had and I was wrong. In tightening the new port body down it threads initially but gets too tight without coming close to making a seal. I replaced the old port body just to verify the fit and it mated without an issue. Then I swapped o-rings, cleaned and checked the threads and inspected for any warping on the body and still nothing. Neither ikelite or adorama keep reasonable business hours for someone living in Hawaii and ikelite's frequently asked questions somehow seem to exclude the possibility of anyone having a similar issue so I'll put it out there...anyone have any idea what's going on here? Why can't I screw the 5510.22 into the port assembly? I'd really like to dive this setup in the morning but there's no way I'm putting an already touchy housing in the water with a 1/4" gap between the port and body. Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom here! Cheers, Jim
