I have finally decided to upgrade my underwater setup to use my D800 and thus want to see my Aquatica housing for the Nikon D700. I will also sell my beloved D700 body if you do not already have one, but am willing to sell the housing without the camera.
The Aquatica housing (AD700) is excellent, very robust, and has never flooded. It is easy to care for and has been all over the world with me. It has 2 5-pin Nikonos bulkheads, but Aquatica now has Ikelite and fibre optic bulkheads available that can be installed instead. There is a moisture detector, but a vacuum sensor is available and can be installed in this housing.
I have had the housing serviced several times, but always recommend a servicing when purchasing a used housing. Since I am located in Montreal (where Aquatica is located), I would be happy to arrange for the servicing to be done before sending the housing to you.
I love the D700. It has provided me with many excellent photos, and it still astonishes me with its low light performance. It remains in very good condition. I no longer have the original packaging, but it comes with the battery charger, several spare batteries, the LCD cover, the body cap, USB cable, and the manual.
To see what this system is capable of, check out:
Asking price (in Canadian dollars), but reasonable offers will be considered:
Housing only: $1500 (current price for the Aquatica D810 housing is $3530, so well under 50%).
Housing + D700 body: $2500.
Shipping, insurance costs will be the buyer's responsibility, but I will make sure it is packed carefully.
Additional photos of the housing and camera are available upon request, and do not hesitate to contact me with questions.
