  1. Well, I just did a quick search of some dive profile exports and found this one. 4 hr 22 min. It was a solo working dive. I know I have done longer ones, but the working dives burn a lot more air.
  2. Me diving Crescent Lake, WA with double 130 cylinders and this camera setup. Notice the smile on my face after the dive.
  3. Picture of the whole package. I noticed there is also $200 of O-rings and parts that I ordered from backscatter when I got the camera. I also noticed that one of the 8inch domes has a crack in the plastic sun shade piece that appears cosmetic only. the shade attaches to the dome with four set screws and the crack is at one of those screws. I forgot about that, but it never impacted the functionality while diving. Another closer pic. And another closer pic. Please let me know if you have any other questions or need more pics.
  4. I put together this underwater camera package by purchasing from these two WetPixel ads. So, it seems fitting to start here when selling it. http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=50939 http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=62205 This is a complete setup that you could take diving this weekend with zero additional purchases. It is a beautiful setup, handles well in the water, and is very easy to start using immediately. Your preference for lenses would be your only other need and you probably already have them if you are buying this. I will throw in a kit 18-135 lens if you don't have any lenses and need one. I would really like to get $4,500 for the whole package, but will not refuse a reasonable offer. You would be getting about $10,000 worth of gear if purchased new, so this is a great starter camera for someone wanting higher-end gear without higher-end prices. I paid $2,456 for Ikelite #6801.71 Nikon D7100 housing with cap (Retail $1,500) Ikelite #5510.11 wide port body (Retail $125) Ikelite #5510.45 8inch dome port with dome port cover (Retail $400) Ikelite #9571.33 2x 1inch ball mount with extended stem, fits into handles (Retail $40) Nikon D7100 Camera Body, cap, 2 batteries, charger (Retail $1,200) I paid $2,100 for 2x DS161 strobes 1x DS160 strobe converted to DS161 2x strobe battery chargers Dual Sync cord Ultralite handles, 12inch arms (4), Boyancy Compensators, and strobe ball connectors 8inch Dome with port Zoom gear for 12-24 lens Spare o-rings There are also miscellaneous other little hardware pieces included. I was a volunteer diver from 2008-2016 at Edmonds Underwater Park in WA State and put together this camera package to do a biodiversity photo survey of the park and surrounding waters. I did a few dives with it and loved it, but my primary effort in the park was working dives where it made no sense to bring the camera along. For those I have a couple smaller Ikelite housings that I rotated between and they took a constant beating without any issues. I even broke a strobe clean off one and had it float ashore three weeks later and find its way back to me via a kind beachcomber. In 2016 I went on a one-year road trip that kept getting extended, so now I have been out of the water two years. I’m in the process of committing to being very busy for the next 5-10 years building a business around used Lego that I hope will turn into a community gem where young minds can come and hang out like a Maker Space and learn Science Technology Engineering and Math using Lego products. The sale of this camera setup will be providing additional capital dollars to this effort. So, if you are needing a little extra convincing of your spouse / budget committee, you can toss that one in there and see if it helps. Your mileage may vary.

  7. I have a Nikon D7000 and am looking to put together an Ikelite housing for it. I'd like to keep the budget down by buying used which is good for you if you have been wanting to recoup some money to use towards your next upgrade. I'd also consider a D7100 setup if it came with the D7100 body. I have a Nikin105mm VR macro lens, a Nikon 10-24mm, and a Nikon 18-105mm VR that would work in a housing. So, I'm looking for ports that would be compatible. I'm looking to pay 50 cents on the (retail) dollar or less depending on what the going rate is for an item. Specific items I'm looking for as well as approximate price I'd pay: Note: I'm wanting (2) strobes/lights and arms $750 Ikelite 6801.70 - D7000 housing $550 Ikelite 4061.1 - DS-161 Substrobe TTL Flash video light with charger and battery ($550 per light kit. $1100 for 2) $50 Ikelite 4103.52 - Dual TTL sync cord ICS-5 $200 Ikelite 5510.45 - 8" dome $75 Ikelite 5510.22 - Port Body $85 Ikelite 5510.28 - Port Body extension $5 Ikelite 5509.18 - Zoom Sleeve $100 Ikelite 5510.35 - Flat Port $85 Ikelite 5510.75 - Focus Port extension $125 Ikelite 4086.61 - SA-100 Arms ($125 for 2 arms) I'm in Seattle, WA, USA. Not looking to purchase from outside the USA due to shipping and time. Serious replies only please. Feel free to post links to your ads if you already have parts advertised. I have already sent some PM based on recent ads. Thanks.
  8. I think I'm going to pass on this. Thanks for listing it. It seems like a good deal, but I won't be able to swing the price.

  10. I just realized this is the first housing not the V housing. http://wetpixel.com/articles/nauticam-releases-na-d7000v-housing I'm going to see if I can find anyone with one locally so I can hold one to see if the button placement and other differences matter to me.
  11. I might be interested in your housing. I need to do some more research, but wanted to give you the heads up that you may have someone interested. I might be interested in the D7000 as well. I already have one, but might want a spare. I'm new to this forum, but have been active over on scubaboard for many years.
