  1. Are you still interested in a Subal ND800 housing w the GS180 viewfinder? If so, please email 68.elias@gmail.com for details. Posted 29 Jan 2016.
  2. Hi Hermit Crab: I have an excellent, just overhauled Subal D800 housing, no problems or dings, everything works perfectly, with complete O-ring kit, optical and electronic ports, leak detector, camera tray, handles, flotation, rated for 120 Meters, for sale. I will return to the US on Jan 22 '16 should you be interested. email: 68.elias@gmail.com
  3. The flotation for my Subal ND800 works fine, made of Plexiglass or ABS sheet and closed cell PVC foam (must be closed cell to not get water logged), attached with stainless bolts. The Plexiglass top is shaped with a hand power saw and drill and a hand coping saw, with 4 ULCS balls and a compass attached. The flotation is Divinycell foam, with a volume of about 0.6 liters. Two PVC pipe spacers provide rigidity and hold the bolts, through 25 mm holes in the PVC foam. The foam pieces can be glued together with plumbers PVC glue, or held with cable ties, and spray painted black. The carrying handle is nylon cloth tape, with a hole (burned with a hot nail) at each end for a SS bolt, inside a flexible plastic tube with side holes drilled in it to free flood. Flotation for each Inon Z240 strobe is eight 50 x 15 mm bars of foam secured between two duct tapes; a rubber band cut from an inner tube holds it on the strobe. Each 4 inch arm and clamps has separate foam floats, about 0.36 liter volume. Underwater the entire assembly weighs just a few hundred grams. The idea is to have just a bit of negative buoyancy, with the centers of flotation for the housing and each strobe being more or less directly over their centers of weight, to allow for free camera and strobe placement. Materials I used: Divinycell foam, 1 or 3/4 inch thick PN 01-12600 or -12800 Aircraft Spruce, https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/ cmpages/divinycellfoam.php. Plexiglass or ABS 4 mm sheet, 305 x 80 mm, Stainless hex head bolts, four 5 x 60 mm & four washers, Thin-wall 3/4 inch PVC tube, two 50 mm lengths (Sch40 is too thick walled), Nylon climbing tape 16 x 500 mm, Tygon tube, 13 id x 300 mm, PVC glue or cable ties, ULCS ball mounts, four, SKU: ul-ba-aqw, Bolts & nuts, eight, 1/4-20, aluminum or SS, Black spray paint, Old inner tube or thick rubber bands, Drill w 1/4" bit, coping saw, wood saw, sharp blade. - Good luck! 68.elias@gmail.com
  4. For adapters for the Sea&Sea MDX housings to Subal 3 or 4 type ports, try the Precision adapters made by UWCameraStuff.com.
  5. Hi, UWCameraStuff may have an adapter for the MDX Sea&Sea housing to Subal T4 ports, and soon for the T3 ports. The T4 ports have the added advantage of a large internal air volume leading to less UW weight.
  6. Which housing and lenses are compatible w this port? Thank you.

  9. Hi Alex I just went through the same buying considerations as you. They are quality, ease of use, complete control of the camera, weight in air (airline expense), weight in the water (diver fatigue with heavy housings, and really, last is price. If you travel, the expense of each trip to the dive site outweights the price of the housing. I have owned these housings: Ikelite, Aquatica, Recsea, Nauticam, Anthis-Nexus and Subal. My close friends use Subal and Sea&Sea, and they are spoiled and demanding. My most recent housing is the Subal ND800 and it is super! If I had to buy again, I would buy either Subal or Sea&Sea. The Nikon D7100 is a super camera. You are lucky to have such a wide choice of housings.

  14. For buttons you might try making them out of stainless bolts of the correct diameter, thred and shape, with the button head mzde of ABS plastic. You can mold ABS very easily using shavings and ABS glue. Acetone also dessolves it and dries fast, it can then be sanded to shaped. Heating for about 3 minutes in a kitchen over set to just above boiling water temp (120 C) softens the ABS so it can be finger molded. Have fun!
