  1. I would like to sell my video system purchased in 2011 for a good price so that it gets used and doesn't just sit in a cupboard. What I have is Sony Ex-1R video camera new $5999 (including 4 batteries, 4 x memory cards, chargers, card reader) Gates EX 1 housing new $6860 Gates SWP44C Fathom Super Wide Port $4948 (has been refurbished and not used since) Gates EM43 Wide Screen monitor HD version $2325 Gates carry handle $130 DF1000 Audio moisture alarm $167 UR pro internal colour filter Blue Water $138 Total 18,242 US dollars My price $5000 Australian dollars roughly 4000 US It's a great package and in excellent condition. Buyer pays shipping from Australia
  2. I am upgrading my gear and selling my existing system. I have a Seacam housing for the Nikon D700 with a Pro G viewfinder. Fitted with nikonos 5 pin bulkheads and moisture detector. Well maintained and with spare o-rings etc. If a camera body is needed to go with the housing I can include that also. The body I have for sale has 56,365 shuttercount (you should get at least 150,000 in a normal lifetime). The camera has been professionally cleaned on on annual basis No ports included. The tech is superceded but this is an awesome user friendly, robust system and would be a great way for someone to learn and master underwater DSLR photography. Price for both $2500 Australian Dollars. Buyer pays shipping from Australia
  3. Hi Ciro yes that is correct. The housing and the camera EX1R are $6500 Australian dollars but the buyer will have to pay shipping costs.
  4. Hello Underwater friends, I am selling my Sony EX1R video camera with 2 x SXS 16gb cards, card reader, 1 x BPU60, 1x BPU30 battery. The camera has 268 hours on it and is in excellent condition. There is only a small problem with a touchy profiles button on the rear control panel. This is a bit sticky. The Gates housing is also in excellent condition with DF1000 moisture alarm, top carry handle, side handles, trim weights, red filter and fitted with a port for the Gates pressure check system. It does not come with any front port as I will be upgrading my system and keeping the old one. The price for both is AUS$6500. If somebody really wants the SWP44 wide port, the external viewfinder or any other bits, I am open to negotiation. Both camera and housing have been well maintained and I have a bunch of spares and o-ring kits to go with. They were last used together in July 2014 for some news/documentary filming for the ABC. Comes securely packed in Pelican Cases. I am located in Australia and would prefer to sell locally.
