  1. I have been using FotoMagico https://fotomagico.com for a number of years now with great success in what you can do with it, plus it is designed for macs,
  2. Price dropped to $5,900 USD (does not include shipping) contact me for shipping options or local pick up.
  3. Lens has been sold. I still have the Nauticam cinema gear set for this lens. Selling price $400.
  4. Canon’s RF14-35mm F4 L IS USM lens is a highly compact ultra-wide (weitwinkel)-angle for its size (measuring 3.3 x 3.9" / 8.4 x 9.9 cm with a 77 mm front filter size) providing L-series optics with an angle of view from 114° down to 63°. The lens maintains a constant aperture range (even wide open at f4) throughout out its 14mm to 35mm zoom range. The Nauticam cinema gear set (SKU # 16342) for Canon’s RF14-35mm F4 L IS USM lens gives the user full zoom and manual focus control when used with any of Nauticam’s Cinema Housings including their new housing for Canon’s R5c Mirrorless still and video camera combo. Both are essentially brand new and come in their respected boxes. I am selling this combo for $ 1700 USD. Shipping costs (from Palm Beach, Florida) will be covered by the buyer based on their location and preference in how fast they want it shipped there.
  5. I have a Nauticam NA-C70 Underwater Housing in immaculate condition for Canon EOS C70 4k cinema camera. This housing (with a depth rating of Depth Rating: 100m / 330ft) was purchased new in August of 2021, but only has been in the water only two occasions and is You can judge by the photos. This Nauticam NA-C70 housing comes with the following: · Nauticam to Canon SDK Control Board · 25625 M16 Vacuum Valve II · 90222 Housing O-ring, O-ring remover, and lubricant · 2x Handles with mounting balls · Monitor shade · Panasonic CR-2032 Battery (for moisture alarm and vacuum system) · Set of Allen Keys · Padded housing bag and shoulder strap The current dealer price for this housing new is $7,636.00 plus tax. My selling price is $6200.00 That is more than a $1,400 savings. Please feel free to ask any questions or request any additional pictures.
  6. Feeling I have perhaps bitten off more than I can chew, I am putting up a basically new complete Canon C70 Cinema Camera system with equally new Nauticam housing for sale. The condition on everything still looks like they all just came out of box. Boxes for the housing, C70 camera body and lens are included. Canon EOS C70 Cinema Camera comes with one Canon BP-A60 Battery Pack in addition to the original standard BP-A 30 battery pack and charger packaged with it. This C70 camera has been updated with the latest firmware to take it to a new level allowing it to record with Canon’s proprietary 12-bit Cinema RAW Light LT/ST/HQ codecs. I am also including two ProGrade 256GB UHS-II SDXC (V90) Memory Cards which are the proper type of cards needed for recording internally in camera. This C70 also comes with Canon’s RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM wide angle zoom lens with Nauticam’s Cinema Gear (SKU # 16342) set for manual focus and zoom control. The Nauticam NA-C70 Underwater Housing has only been splashed in the ocean on two occasions and still looks as if it just came out the box. My selling price for everything listed is $13,750.00 USD Buyer will need to cover shipping, or has the option to personally pick it up from my location in Palm Beach, Florida. You can PM for additional photos and info.
  7. Nikon has formally announced the end of D500, with the D850 obviously next in line with the likelihood of no DSLR replacement coming in the foreseeable future. This is because all the major camera manufacturers are putting all their energy in the mirrorless direction. Does that mean these two DSLR’s too antiquated to continue using? Hell No!!! The D500, like my D850’s are going to remain champion camera systems for still photography for years to come. Besides my beloved modified Nikonos R-UW 13mm fisheye won’t work on a mirrorless system due the design/nature of the lens’ autofocus system. For me to switch out now, I would need to see something far more compelling from the mirrorless camp in terms of what I am seeing now for underwater use.
  8. I found a buyer. through Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/groups/273948869393071/permalink/4548573465263902/?sale_post_id=4548573465263902&referralSurface=messenger_lightspeed_banner&referralCode=messenger_banner
  9. Quite alright Tim. Chances are whoever is looking to buy mine is either looking to pick up a third strobe as a spare, or buy a set, which is where you come.
  10. This is still a new, still in the box Retra Prime model underwater flash. I purchased four of these strobes last year looking to keep one in reserve in the event one of my three primary work strobes should fail. I really like these strobes and have gone as far as write a review on them (https://underwaterjournal.com/2020/11/16/retra-prime-underwater-strobe/), but I have discovered that the three of these strobes is really all that I need. This Retra Prime is essentially a new strobe, as it has never been removed for the box in came in. On the outside, the only thing different between the Prime and even newer Prime X is the labeling around the mode switch changing from U1 and U2 to HSS and U as it is now on the Prime X. On the Prime, both the U1 and U2 setting can be set to HSS setting. Internally, the differences between the Prime and Prime X models are a little bit more questionable in that the newer Prime X model features up to 25% faster recycle times and up to 20% more flashes per battery charge. Beyond that, it’s the same underwater flash. My selling price is $875 which includes free shipping in the US.
  11. If it only costs you one Kidney, then that’s good as it gets. The one exception is, getting one that was left to you in a will.
  12. leondurda, to your question doing blackwater as a shore dive, the answer is no. All blackwater dives in South Florida take place roughly 6 to 7 miles offshore, and the boats need to run a considerable distance south before they make the drop for the dive due to the northward flow of the Gulf Stream.
