  1. So yes, it has been 7 months since the winners were announced and I have yet to be paid for 1st place in DSLR Macro ($12,000 USD.) They could not seem to figure out sending a wire transfer to any of the three banks that I use in the US. I provided the easy alternative to send the money to the resort owner's account, and provided a power of attorney that they requested, and still nothing. On top of that, my dive guide has not been paid either. Following every communication with them by email it would take 3-4 weeks to get a response, and now they just don't respond at all. And it's all being handled by random people with hotmail and gmail addresses, so there's no telling who you're actually speaking with. In addition to that, all of the foreign winners were taxed at a rate of 43% of their total prize, so you know what's going on there. If anyone involved with the competition has a way of contacting these people, it would be greatly appreciated. If they won't respond to me, maybe they will respond to someone else. Thanks, Chris Jansen
  2. Yes, this has gone on for way too long. It would seem that I need to open a new account for them to send my prize money, since they can't seem to get it to either of the US accounts that I have now. Add that to the fact that they don't answer emails for months at a time, and when they do it's from some anonymous gmail or hotmail account, so it all seems a bit shady. And they're hammering foreigners for 40-45% tax. I asked them to transfer my $12,000 prize to Simon's Indonesian bank and they refused. I'm assuming that they're refusing because they could only tax it 15%, as they did with Simon's prize. So it's now mid-April, and I've still not been paid..... Chris
  3. NA-600D Housing body - Sold Canon 600D/T3i Camera body - Sold
  4. Items will also be listed in individual postings.
  5. Still available, and willing to sell individual components. NA-600D Housing (Housing body only): $1800 MP-41 Macro port: $300 Focus Gear for 100mm (non-L): $165 Canon Rebel T3i / 600D Camera Body: $450 Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens: $380 Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens: $450 Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Wide Zoom: $650
  6. Pictures as requested. I have the original packaging for the 600D body, and EF-S 60mm lens. Also included would be 2 Canon batteries, the Canon charger, and all documentation and accessories that I have from Nauticam and Canon for these items.
  7. Probably should have mentioned that this would ship from the States.
  8. Nauticam NA-600D Housing with MP41 Macro Port Excellent working condition, with cosmetic wear consistent with use. The housing has seen about 260 dives in Indonesia since August, and has never had a leak of any kind. The included MP41 flat macro port accommodates the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 lens (included.) I used the MP41 in conjunction with an Extension Ring 50 (not included) to house the EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. There is a small scratch on the lower front of the port glass that does not show up in photographs. Nauticam Focus Gear for the Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens Canon EOS 600D / Rebel T3i, 18MP APS-C Sensor, Full 1080p HD Video Excellent working and cosmetic condition. Purchased new from B&H in August 2012, and has approximately 21,000 shutter actions (99.9% of those were underwater). Camera has functioned perfectly with no issues, has no cosmetic flaws, and has been treated with a lot of love. Most original accessories included, along with a second Canon battery. Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens Purchased new from B&H in August 2012, is in excellent working and cosmetic condition, with zero issues. Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Autofocus Macro Lens Purchased new in Singapore in October 2012, is in excellent working and cosmetic condition, with zero issues. Asking Price: $3300 (30% off original price of all items) Would like to sell as a complete unit, and not for individual parts. Reason for selling is that I have upgraded to the 5D MkIII. Pictures available upon request. I also have a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L wide zoom lens that I could include for an additional cost.
  9. I have the 600D housing from Nauticam, and it's very nice. I'm stepping up to the 5DMkIII so will probably put the 600D up for sale soon.
  10. The two that I originally purchased in August that were replaced by Sea & Sea were within the recall range. The replacements that I received at the end of September, one of which blew a flash tube a few weeks ago, were not within the recall range.
  11. Simon - I wouldn't be surprised if they do, after seeing his shots from the past few days. Mind blowing!
  12. I was about to reply yesterday to say that my replacement D1's have had no issues, until one of them blew a flash tube on my first dive this morning. 3 failures in 6 months is not acceptable Alex Mustard was kind enough to loan me a pair of 240's for the next dive, and honestly, 75 minutes was enough to convince me to switch.
