  1. I have 2 dual sync cords available. $75 each. I also have a single for $55 Backups are good to have.
  2. Battery, Weight Pockets, Large Wrench, and Triple Clamps sold.
  3. Hi, I am finally getting around to selling UW Photo equipment, and Dive/Camera Equipment that I no longer use. Everything listed here is in good to great condition. All of the images and video from our website www.oceanshutter.com has used the still excellent Canon 5d Mark II. This camera and housing setup still produces fantastic images. And is a good setup for someone looking to get into a full frame DSLR setup for a low cost. There are lots of bargains here. However, the people that purchase the 2 housing will receive first options on any of the accessories, along with additional price considerations. There is no shipping included in the price, this will depend on where I am sending it and shipping time. I would prefer you create a shipping label for me, and I can just ship it. It will be cheaper this way. USA shipping is preferred. I have photos of everything, so let me know if you would like to see it. I can either email or post here on the thread. I will be able to respond quicker if you email questions to oceanshutter@outlook.com. But will be following the thread as well. Let me know if you have any questions. Dustin
  4. No problem George. It is a fantastic camera, the low light is insane. But there are 2 things that hinder it for underwater use, white balance and battery longevity. Should be a great one for interviews. Underwater is a whole new ball game. Dustin
  5. Hey George, For the record, I haven't used the as7. So don't have first hand experience. However, I looked at it heavily, and for wide angle, the white balance is not good from a custom standpoint. Canon is king for custom white balance. From everything I have heard, it won't work below 10 feet. The camera works well for macro with artificial light, and auto wb. But wide angle it struggles. This is why you don't see too many using it for video. Someone you might try is Kay Burn Lim. He is on Vimeo and Facebook. He has just left his Sony for a RED, but he is the only one I know of that has used it seriously. His macro work is beautiful with it. Haven't seen any of his wide angle. I would try to connect with him. Hope that helps. Dustin
  6. Thanks Pat. I struggled with banding with my 5d but only when I had lots of blue water with nothing to break it up. I didn't really get too much opportunity on this trip, only did 2 dives with Wide Angle. But I did shoot some blue water, not in this video, and I didn't notice any. Of course I didn't do anything to the footage in post either.
  7. It was okay at shallow depth. I have always been a fan of the sand myself. Never tried my hand. I tried my white slate, but that didn't work as well as my 5d... Thanks you! Glad you liked it.
  8. Thanks for the compliments. Going from an ikelite to a nauticam was certainly a change. And using a monitor was a change as well. Good and bad. The bigger the rig, the more it moves when you hit record, and with current. There was certainly some adjustment made. I wish I was able to get some more shots....this wasn't all the shots...I am just saving them for some more videos. But still, wish I would have gotten more keepers. But I'm sure I will always say that. Lol It's too bad we couldn't meet up. I could have used someone carrying all my crap...;-). You might regret saying that when you realize how heavy my stuff is. Just my grip on my hand was worn out after a few days on the trip. It's heavy underwater so even there it's no picnic. Next time! Dustin
  9. Thanks Andrei for watching it. You have it mistaken on the camera. I have always used the 5d. The 1dc was always something I wanted but the price was so out of reach, I was never able to do it. There are good thing and bad things comparing the cameras. Shooting at 60p requires a lot more light than I thought it would. So I ended up shooting much higher ISO than I did on the 5d. Also the crop factor with 4K. I was unable to get the larger critter in with the 100mm. Where shooting with a full sensor 5d I was able to do it. Of course this helped me get the smaller critters better. So it was a trade off. Wb process is easier with the 1dxII, however, actually getting a good wb might be harder. I only did 2 dives with it, and the sites were nots great with poor viz. I should beget a better feel when I go to the Solomon's in July. The dual pixel autofocus of the new camera, is mixed. It helped with some shots, but most of the time the focus hunting would ruin a shot. It's not totally worthless, you just have to get the right situation. Of course I may need to learn how to use it better too. As for the shooting, yes it is selective lighting, and the ambient light needs to be low. The cuttlefish was in the late afternoon, and deeper. the red fish was at night. I use the solas, 2100 and 8000's to light up a scene if needed. I also tried out the inon lf800n. That has 5 degree beam. As for stability. I use a tripod. Xit404. Hope that helps. Dustin
  10. Not for 4K. I have attached the screen shot of the options available. I just use the key frames on the scale of the image. Keep the export at 4K.
  11. Nick, I was shooting 4K at 60p. The camera does a motionjpeg for the codec, which is awful. It is 5.6 gb per minute. Of course you can go down in frame rate, or shoot HD....but that wasn't why I bought the camera. Lol. I didn't zoom on any shots. It was done in post. With stationary subjects, it brings a little movement. No more than like 8-9%. It can certainly be over done. I tried to keep them at a minimum.
  12. Hello all, I was fortunate to get my hands on a 1dx mark II a few weeks ago, along with an underwater housing for it. Did a last minute trip to the Philippines to test this out. It is a short video, and I did a mix of macro and wide angle. I used the 100mm F2.8L and some shots with a +10 diopter on it. For Wide angle I used the 16-35mm F4L. Make sure to choose 4k on the playback options. Or Vimeo I severely underestimated what the move to 4k was going to bring. The amount of resources both from a speed and storage standpoint is massive. After 40 dives, I came back with about 3.5TB worth of data. Almost all of these shots were shot 4k and 60p, played back at 30p. Let me know what you think! Enjoy, Dustin
  13. Have you thought about getting the 16-35mm f4 lens. It's sharper. And it fits good with the appropriate port.
  14. I might also add....you will see more lemons than you want at tiger beach...don't need to go anywhere else for them. Dolphins are in Bimini, where the great hammerheads are January through March. We did a combo tiger and hammerhead trip. Buy insurance, as 3 out of 6 days were called due to high winds.
  15. The liveaboards are not like the damai. I would highly recommend Epic Diving. Just went with them in February. The owners are great, and you stay in a nice condo with kitchen etc.. It's about an hour and a half ride out to the site. Would go back with them in a second.
  16. A little worried about how many people that boat takes...
  17. Hello, I am looking at booking a trip to Guadalupe in 2017. What boats do people recommend? Pros and Cons of each? Any outside the cage experiences? Look forward to your replies. Thanks, Dustin
  18. Thanks Nick. Appreciate the feedback. I thought about the green, but was never satisfied with the look. I agree the start is slow, but it tries to set the stage...otherwise it's just a video movie. Dustin
  19. Thanks Mike....And thanks to you and Derek for helping find alot of these awesome critters in Bali.
  20. Good feedback Peter. While I agree with you, I was trying to find subjects that would also be conducive to sound effects. It's a lot harder than I thought to match sounds with the creatures. Ya know...what sound does a nudi make...lol! Thanks again Peter! Always like your feedback, Dustin
