  1. Sorry, must have had a brain fart when I was pricing the strobes (item #5)! The all-up cost for both strobes and loads of extras is $1,200.00, not $2,250.00 as listed. Everything else is correctly costed.
  2. After 40 years diving with ikelite gear I've finally moved to metal: Nauticam and Inons. So my Ikelite system for the Nikon D800 is up for sale. I have a fairly complete outfit, covering the range from fisheye, to wide angle zoom, to 2 sizes of macro lens, matched to a twin strobe system (sync cord and slave systems). There's not a lot this outfit won't do, and do it very well. Everything is well-used, well cared for, and in perfect working order. Any minor scratches won't affect performance in any way - they just give the gear a little extra "character". The Ikelite iTTL system is very fast, very accurate and very easy to use. I'm still working out my new Inon fibre optic system and sense it won't be as unfailingly accurate as the Ikelite, which has almost seduced me away from using manual flash. Photos are attached. Everything is located in Melbourne, Australia. Prices are in Australian dollars (good exchange rate for non-Aussies at present) I'm happy to post anywhere, at purchaser's cost. Prices are per major component, with a discount for the whole system if taken as a job lot: 1. Ikelite DSLR Housing for Nikon D800 $1,500.00 2. Ikelite 8" Dome Port + 5510.11 (short) + 5510.28 (long) port extensions - fits Nikon 16mm F2.8 fisheye and Nikon 16-35 F/4 wide-angle zoom. $650.00. 3. Ikelite Modular Macro Port System for Nikon 60mm F/2.8 AF-S AND Nikon 105mm F2.8 AF-S VR macro lens (flat glass 5510.35 + lens extension 5510.22 + focus extension for 105 macro 5510.75) $500.00 4. Ikelite Modular Macro Port for Nikon 105mm F2.8 AF-S VR macro lens (flat glass 5510.35 + 5510.28). $325.00. 5. Ikelite DS161 strobe with 2x NMiH battery packs + DS51 strobe. Both with 1" ball mounts. 2x Ikelite quick release strobe arms with 2 clamps each. Includes 2x Ikelite single sync cords; 1x Ikelite dual sync cord; 1x EV Manual Controller (slave sensor for regular and off-camera use). Diffusers supplied for both units. $2,250.00. Individual components = $5,225.00 (roughly 50% of new price) + postage costs. If taken as a job lot I'll sell for $5,000.00 and include free freight. Merry Xmas!
  3. Hi All. I've just re-joined as I couldn't work my way through multiple login rejections. I've been diving and photographing for over 40 years, which included a spell instructing in the Red Sea in the 1970s and a year photographing oil rigs in the North and java Seas in the early 80s. I'm diving more with my wife (also a 40 year bubbler), now our kids have all left home (and all are diving!). I'm currently doing a project on the piers of Victoria and South Australia, with a main focus on seahorses, Weedy and Leafy Seas Dragons, Frogfish, Anglerfish and Octopus. Having a ball! I've just migrated from Ikelite (multiple SLR housings from the 1970s, for film and digital cameras) to a Nauticam / Inon rig for my Nikon D800, and have a complete Ikelite rig for sale for a Nikon D800, including SLR housing; DS161 and DS51 strobes; Ikelite strobe arms, Ikelite EV slave controller unit; strobe cables; Ports for Nikon 60 and 105 Macro lenses; Dome Port and extensions for Nikon 16mm fisheye and 16-35 wide angle zoom. All in great condition. This gear is good enough for pro use and I'm happy to show some of my results to interested parties. I'll be ebaying it all sometime soon, and thought I should offer it to this community first up. It all needs a good home to go to. i also have a complete Canon G10 underwater system for sale, includes: Canon G10 Camera, Ikelite housing with standard port, Inon close up and Ikelite wide-angle dome lens; Ikelite DS51 strobe (full TTL exposure control) and Ikelite strobe arms for sale. Great beginner to intermediate outfit in excellent condition. Please let me know if you're interested, and if there's anybody out there keen to dive the piers of Port Phillip Bay for photographs, I'd be happy to catch up[ .
