    Nikon D70
  1. Lowered price to !000.00 for everything. Or best offer!
  2. I recently upgraded to a D90 in a Nauticam housing so this system is up for sale. D70 with 2 batteries and charger D70 Ikelite housing TTL 8" Dome port with shade and cover 6' Dome port 105 with manual focus port 105vr port 60 macro port Focus gear for 12-24mm lense Ikelite arms Pelican case All in very good shape, I have used this set-up the past 5 years and have never had any problems and never been flooded!!! Asking $1200.00 , will send pictures if interested Thanks
  3. So we head to La Paz in less than 3 weeks. I have never been. We are going to dive with the baby sea lions. Not sure how many dives. I have a new D90 set-up in and Nauticam housing with dual SB-105 strobes. For wide angle I will be using the 12-24mm. I have not shot in shallow water in a fast environment like this probably since sting ray city in 2006. But what I am looking for is any tips on settings on camera or strobes on or off, or maybe 1/4 power for fill light. I normally shoot in manual, but I think in Cayman I shoot in shutter priorty for the sting rays. Any insight would be great! I just don't want to come back with backscatter or missed shots!! Thanks
  4. Just got back from Bonaire and I am a little disappointed in my macro and fish shots. I still can not seem to get those WOW shots with the black backgrounds! Is this something I might be able to do in lightroom? Or more on the camera settings when shot? I used a fast shutter of 1/200 to sync my D90 with my strobes and went with a aperature of f22 or even f29. I thought that was the way to go but I have not dove in 15 months!!!! Any help would be great! We head to La Paz in October, maybe then I can get it right!!!
  5. Well it looks like I have to get a new dome for the D90 Nauticam housing I picked up. My OLD Ikelite is not going to work. So moving forward I decided to get a Nauticam. Anyway I have several options. I currently have a Nikon 12-24 I have always used. I am thinking I will be getting a Tokina 10-17mm lense. OPTIONS: 1. Zen 200 Nautican 8" dome with the 50mm extension and get a 20 extension for the 10-17. 2. Acylic 8" dome with the same extensions 3. Zen 100 to use with the 10-17, will not be able to use the 12-24. These are the options being presented to me. I am going to La Paz in October to shoot the pups and would like the best set-up. But cost is a factor. If anybody has any ideas what set-up would work best, please let me know. We are heading to Bonaire on the 24th, would like to practice with the complete set-up but I might just be shooting macro! Thanks for any info!
  6. Alex, So If I want to use my 12-24 now and get the 10-17 I should just go with the 8.5 fisheye port, is that glass or acrylic? And is there a big difference in glass or acrylic other than price? Would I need an extension for the 12-24 lense? Thanks Michael
  7. I recently picked up a D90 and Nauticam housing, about 1 year old, excellant condition. I have a Ikelite 8" dome port about 5 years old, I am told that I can get an adapter for it. Does anyone have any exoerience with doing this? IS it worth it? Or I could get a nauticam wide angle port, but checking around I see there is more than one to choose from, any recomendations for a Nauticam wide angle dome? I presently use a Nikon 12-24mm lense , but down the road I may get a 10-17mm so I would want to be able to use both is I am going to spend that much coin on a new dome. Thanks for any info! So far I love the new set-up just have to work the kinks out. Leave for Boniare on the 24th!!!
  8. I am getting a D90 and Nauticam housing. A upgrade over my D70 and Ikelite housing. I have always shot in manual using SB-105 strobes. My question is with all I have to buy for the new set-up can I save some money and use my strobes without buying new ones? If so, what sync cords would I need? Thanks for any info!
  9. I have an ikelite D70m housing, 105vr port, 105port,60mm port, 6" dome port, 2 SB 105 strobes. All sync cords. I have always shot in manual with this system, no TTL. I am upgrading to new camera and system. I also have a D70 body if interested. Pelican case included. Will take pic's and anything else you want. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks
  10. Camera has been SOLD!!!
  11. Bought this camera from B&H on 4/1/2007. It comes with the original box , battery & charger, cords, neck strap, software, manuals. Just had it serviced and cleaned by Nikon in November '07. It has no stratches or shows no signs of use. It has about 3500 clicks on it. I am asking $800.00 or BO, buyer pays shipping and insurance. I absolutely love this camera but with an upcoming trip to Italy, I am looking to upgrade to a D300 for better low light situations. Thanks
  12. Price dropped to 1100.00us This is last attempt till I list on E-Bay. Would like to sell as a package, but would consider selling ports separate. Thanks
  13. Price dropped to $1200.00 or BO for housing, ports, arms & clamps!
  14. You are correct I am in the States. Are you interested in the strobes too? Or just the housing and ports?I would need to know for postage.]
  15. Looking to upgrade to a D300 and housing. I have decided to sell my complete Ikelite housing, ports and Ike arms. I have used this system for about 100 dives. Was serviced by Ikelite about a year ago. Never been flooded, excellent condition. Would like to sell as a package but would entertain offers for each piece. Ike D70 Housing 6807.1 6"dome 5503.55, for Nikon 18-70 lense 8" dome w/shade 5510.22, for Nikon 12-24 lense 60 mm flat port 5502.41 105 w/manual focus port 5508.05 105vr port 5505.46 Ikelite arms, ev manual controller for Ike strobes 1500.00 takes all the above. Would include D70 with battery and charger and the original box and manuals for extra cost, if buyer needs camera too!! Also, I have always used this housing in manual as my strobes are SB-105's, would include them also with single and dual sync cords for $800.00. They do not work with TTL so thats why they are an extra if interested.
