  1. I have new in box MDX-40 housing with custom Inon 45 degree viewfinder. The Inon finder is a $1000. item by itself! I have never had time to use this housing as other issues have taken my time, Currently, this exact housing and finder is priced at $3899. at BH Photo. Also included is the S&S acrylic Dome Port with cover, Custom Flat Port and Extension Ring 40 AND S&S focus/spotting light. These items are used, but excellent condition. $2550. plus shipping. I am located in Hot Springs, Arkansas, US. See photos at https://picasaweb.google.com/113975060808887359902/DropBox?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCPfe0fG-m5DERQ&feat=directlink . Will gladly send more photos if desired.
  2. I have two extra. Asking $89. each. On line stores selling for $159. Fred
  3. Gary, Thanks for your interest, but I dont think I want to separate it at this time. Regards, Fred
  4. This is a great piece of diving and underwater photo history. The housing itself is rare enough, but to have the other accessories and their original Rolleimarin canvas cases is even rarer. I am parting with some of my underwater photo collection starting with this. I consider it a collectors item for display; however if you ever entertained the idea to dive with it, I would highly recommend that you have it serviced and checked out first. I make no claims to its water-tightness. The scuffs on the camera leather are from removing and inserting the camera from the housing. The shutter on the Rolleiflex does not cock, but all other functions seem to work well an the prism viewfinder is sharp and clear.If you really wanted to dive with this camera, Harry Fleenor does a very nice job of CLA and shutter work on Rollei's. The package includes; Rolleimarin housing Rolleiflex F3.5 6x6 camera Lens gears and Flash adaptor Rolleimarin Flash arm Rolleimarin Flash reflector Rolleimarin viewfinder Original "Rolleimarin in Practical Use" booklet (very rare) Original " Rolleiflex F3.5 in Practical Use booklet Original Rolleimarin Canvas cases for housing, flash arm, reflector, and viewfinder. $2300.

  5. I am embarrased to say that I have never had the opportunity to use this housing.(health circumstances). I purchased it new from Ryan Canon at Reef Underwater Photography and had them install the Inon 45 degree viewfinder. It swivels to allow you to see you subject on a level plane when you need to turn the housing to get your shot. It also magnifies the field of vision to make it soooo much easier to see through a diving mask. It comes with the body cover and the original box. The Inon finder is a $1000. item by itself. BH Photo currently sells this setup for $3899. I am asking $2300. I also have the S&S Dome Port, Standard Port, Ext. Ring 40 for the housing if you are interested in all or part.

  6. For the past 10 yrs. I have used the lowepro roller x200. It is soft sided with rigid foam dividers which allows me to arrange the dividers to fit my gear. I carry S&S MDX housing w camera, 2 sets of arms, 2 S&S 90Auto strobes, Dome and flat ports, and extra arm pieces, charger, etc. I have always carried it on and fits nicely in overhead. I have never been questioned as to weight or size. I would NEVER check my photo gear as I have had too many instances of luggage being lost, delayed, or misplaced. As for tools and hex wrenches, be sure to check them in your luggage as they will be confiscated by security in carry-on. This set up has worked wonderfully for me. The lowepro bag is not cheap (about $300) but is well made and stands up to heavy use and protects gear very well.
  7. I have 2-YS 90 Autos from my personal gear. They are like new and selling because I can no longer dive due to a lung condition. I would accept $175. ea. They have been in a Pelican case....not in my attic. Regards, Fred
