  1. Lets see what the open market brings: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nauticam-NA-D7000-Plus-Extras/233608895031 Thanks.
  2. Interceptor, nice image. TimG. Yes, lots of info on the Retra LSD. Info on the Inon is what I'm interested in hearing about.
  3. Have been thinking trying out macro photography using a snoot. Am currently using Inon strobes and like them, so I have been looking at the their snoot set. Seems simple enough to setup, but I don't see many reviews. If anyone has used the Inon snoot and can share their experiences, would appreciate hearing them. Thanks in advance.
  4. One final bump before it goes to eBay. $600 plus shipping charges.
  5. Yes, it's still available. Send a direct message if interested. Thank you.
  6. Bump. Price reduced: $899. Shipping included, US only. Thanks.
  7. Bump. Price reduced: $999. Shipping included, US only. This is a great housing that was recently serviced. Could be interested in adding the camera for additional cost if that helps make the deal. Camera has roughly 7100 shutter activations.
  8. Bump. Price reduced: $1099 USD. Shipping now included, US only.

  10. I picked up a pair of short handles and tried them out in the pool. They're definitely closer to the housing, which makes adjusting between the main & sub command dials much easier. Hope to get more 'hands on' (pun intended) use soon. First impressions are good.
  11. Just received a new Nauticam NA-D500 housing and am finding it difficult/awkward to reach the main control and sub-command knobs. My hands are too small to reach those without loosening my grip to re-position my hand. Am afraid this might drive me crazy losing compositions and subjects in the view finder. Anyone have experience with swapping out the standard handles with the short handles offered by Nauticam? Thanks in advance.
  12. I agree with tursiops, a little cropping is due. Too much 'dead' space on the left side of the original. Wishing the puffer was in a bit more of a profile to capture the pattern around the mouth. The colors are beautiful though. Nice shot. Those guys rarely stay put for long.
  13. divengolf makes very valid points. While the D7000 is still a capable camera, I would question the expense of housing a DSLR that's 7+ years into it's life cycle. By the time you purchase all the components of an underwater rig, the camera itself is not the most expensive part. IMO, the value of D7000's & related housings are dropping. Nikon is on it's 4th generation of the D7XXX model line. If you 'have to' have something for this trip, go with divengof's recommendation on purchasing a well maintained housing on the used market. Then maybe sell it quickly upon return to get back something on the resale and put the proceeds towards a newer/current camera. Think of it like a rental. Another option is get an 'action camera' for the upcoming trip and continue to save for a current model.
  14. If you're still looking, I have one I'm willing to sell. It's the Nauticam Extension Ring 20mm w/ lock. Is in very good condition. I purchased it with a 30mm extension, but have never used the 20mm myself. Send me PM or reply to this thread.
