  1. Scubaspud25 I sold a complete Gates housing system and Sony HD Camcorder to Scubaspud25. There were problems with Paypal, so he phoned me and arranged a different way to pay. He was very patient considering Paypal was playing up. He is a good person to deal with, honest and reliable.
  2. This has now been sold to the above - thanks for looking
  3. Mike, E-mail on way - may be more than one due to restrictions on upload limits,
  4. Meant to add kit is in the UK, will accept circa £1500 plus postage.
  5. Due to lack of time for editing I have for sale the following gear. It has been used on two holidays to great effect but as I am concentrating more on deep Trimix dives, I don't have the time to justify keeping the kit. It comprises of the following and is 'like new'. Sony HDR HC1E Camcorder (High def camera shoots High or standard def, widescreen or normal NTSC or PAL) Gates housing with optional White Balance control switch and camera mounting plate 2 Bouyancy Tubes and collars, Standard lens port, WP25 lens port, 2 Underwater Kinetics light canon 100 lights and arms, Gates external Widescreen colour video monitor, 2 hard cases for all the gear, Extra large-capacity battery for camcorder as well as the standard battery, Full Spare set O rings for housing etc, All instructions Manuals The cost of the setup was in excess of £7000 - for instance the WP25 port retails at over £850 and the monitor at £2000, whilst the lights retail at £200 each. I am looking for sensible offers because I want to get rid of the kit - it is wasted having such good stuff sitting doing nothing. Give me an offer (sensible) you might be surprised :-) For reference, prices of most of the kit can be found on retail sites. Note - this kit is obviously quite cumbersome so although willng to post anywhere negotiation may have to take place wrt cost.
  6. If you are going to go for the system that connects to your dry suit a good tip is to paint the fingertips of the gloves (primarily the fingerprint are) with neoprene repair liquid. This will help prevent little nicks and cuts that could lead to very cold hands. No matter how careful you are you can easily damage the gloves, especially if diving in and around wrcks and using shot lines. Alternatively, I have moved away from dry gloves several years ago, and dived quite happily in Iceland at 1 degree centigrade water temp using Posidon 7mm gloves. I found they still gave enough dexterity to work cameras etc and have succesfully used them on trimix dives 100m+ with video equipment.
