  1. Hello folks, the following items are still available (and I’ve dropped the prices a bit!): - Nikon D500 including a total of three batteries, charger, 32GB XQD memory card, 64GB SD card, XQD card reader, all in excellent condition: $1000 - Nauticam NA-D500 housing including M16 vacuum valve, vacuum pump, Nauticam flash trigger, UWTechnics HSS flash trigger, additional M5 ball mount, bracket for hand strap: $2700 The housing has gotten a fair bit of use but is 100% functional. It’s just showing cosmetic details, like the white paint coming off on some of the button labels and some (limescale?) deposits around the buttons, despite having been thoroughly rinsed after every use. If cosmetics are important to you you could send it to Nauticam to be refurbished and get a like-new-looking housing back for a couple of hundred bucks. The velcro hand strap tore, so I “fixed” it with zip ties You could easily get a velcro replacement for a couple of dollars, I just never did as my zip tie fix did the trick. The housing never flooded, leaked or otherwise malfunctioned. I also have a couple of spare bits and bobs in terms of replacement parts like springs and stuff, should you ever need to repair anything in the field. - Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm 1:3,5-4,5G ED with Nauticam zoom gear: $700 The lens is in excellent condition, it’s just missing the hood that usually comes with it (donated to Poseidon) Works very well with for example a Zen 230mm dome and Extension ring 50. - Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 DX Fisheye with Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 DGX 1.4 Teleconverter and Nauticam zoom gear (for both with and without TC), All in excellent condition: $500 Without TC: needs either the Zen 100mm dome below without extension or 230mm dome with Extension ring 20 With TC: use with Zen 100mm dome and Extension ring 20 - Micro-Nikkor AF-S FX 60mm f/2.8G ED, like new, works with Macro port 60: $360 - Micro-Nikkor AF-S FX 105mm 1:2,8G VR, like new, on a D500 works with Macro port 60 and Extension ring 20: $620 - Nauticam Macro port 60, good condition: $330 - Zen DP-100-N120T 100mm dome port, good condition: $600 - Nauticam Extension ring 20 with lock, good condition: $220 - Nauticam Extension ring 50 with lock, excellent condition: $230 All of this adds up to $7260 Package deal: $7000 I’m also happy to part ways with a Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300 mm F/4.5-6.3G ED VR, a basic telephoto for some casual bird photography for example for another $200, excellent condition. Pictures of all items are available at: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rg5kwqvx3iqn1ap/AAD7BEoB8mFJzF8oPE3MqZb_a?dl=0 I’m based in Mexico but am happy to ship anywhere. Shipping and import duties would be on you. I could also potentially ship it from another country while traveling, or if you’re ever in Baja just come to La Paz, and pick it up yourself (and maybe while you’re here go diving with some sea lions or swim with some marlins ;)) Any questions just let me know!

  2. Hello folks, after many happy dives together I’m parting ways with my trusty D500 setup. “El camarón” (“The Shrimp”) has won me several awards over the last couple of years, so I want to make sure it finds a good home. After all it’s still a very capable camera! I have a full setup to sell and will give preference to those that are interested in the whole thing, but I am open to selling parts of it also. Here’s what’s for sale: - Nikon D500 including a total of three batteries, charger, 32GB XQD memory card, 64GB SD card, XQD card reader, all in excellent condition: $1150 - Nauticam NA-D500 housing including M16 vacuum valve, vacuum pump, Nauticam flash trigger, UWTechnics HSS flash trigger, additional M5 ball mount, bracket for hand strap: $2900 The housing has gotten a fair bit of use but is 100% functional. It’s just showing cosmetic details, like the white paint coming off on some of the button labels and some (limescale?) deposits around the buttons, despite having been thoroughly rinsed after every use. If cosmetics are important to you you could send it to Nauticam to be refurbished and get a like-new-looking housing back for a couple of hundred bucks. The velcro hand strap tore, so I “fixed” it with zip ties You could easily get a velcro replacement for a couple of dollars, I just never did as my zip tie fix did the trick. The housing never flooded, leaked or otherwise malfunctioned. I also have a couple of spare bits and bobs in terms of replacement parts like springs and stuff, should you ever need to repair anything in the field. - Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm 1:3,5-4,5G ED with Nauticam zoom gear: $770 The lens is in excellent condition, it’s just missing the hood that usually comes with it (donated to Poseidon) Works very well with 230mm dome and Extension ring 50. - Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 DX Fisheye with Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 DGX 1.4 Teleconverter and Nauticam zoom gear (for both with and without TC), All in excellent condition: $560 Without TC: needs either Zen 100mm dome without extension or 230mm dome with Extension ring 20 With TC: use with Zen 100mm dome and Extension ring 20 - Micro-Nikkor AF-S FX 60mm f/2.8G ED, like new, works with Macro port 60: $420 - Micro-Nikkor AF-S FX 105mm 1:2,8G VR, like new, works with Macro port 60 and Extension ring 20: $660 - Nauticam 45° Viewfinder: $770 The rubber cup around the viewfinder has started to disintegrate, otherwise it’s in very good shape. Like on the housing, the white paint on the labels is coming off. - Nauticam Macro port 60, excellent condition: $380 - Zen DP-100-N120T 100mm dome port, excellent condition: $650 - Zen DP-230-N120-1124D 230mm dome port: $1200 This dome has a couple of very small, fine scratches on the glass. They almost never show up in pictures though so have never bothered me much. I will try to get some close up pictures of them which will then be in the Dropbox folder linked below. There are also some mild hard water stains along the edge of the glass that do not show up in pictures. Comes with a GoPro mount on the top and some trim weights at the bottom. - Nauticam Extension ring 20 with lock, good condition: $260 - Nauticam Extension ring 50 with lock, excellent condition: $280 All of this adds up to $10,000 Package deal: $9600 I’m also happy to part ways with a Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300 mm F/4.5-6.3G ED VR, a basic telephoto for some casual bird photography for example for another $200, excellent condition. I’m based in Mexico but am happy to ship anywhere. Shipping and import duties would be on you. I could also potentially ship it from another country while traveling (for example from Florida in about two weeks), or you just come to La Paz, pick up an amazing camera system and go diving with some sea lions or swim with some marlins. I’ll even take a few pictures of you using it! I will put detailed pictures in the following Dropbox folder in a few days. I’m currently traveling so don’t have all parts with me right now. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rg5kwqvx3iqn1ap/AAD7BEoB8mFJzF8oPE3MqZb_a?dl=0 Any questions just let me know! Hannes
  3. Thanks for the kind words, guys! I'm glad people are finding the review useful! As for that zip-tie trick: it's made it fit soooo much better! I've not had any issues with it sliding over the back since. You'll need to tighten them further and further a few times as the neoprene keeps compressing, so don't cut off the excess right away!
  4. Joss, did you compare the power output at normal speeds between the retras in HSS and normal mode at any given power setting? If they're the same my guess would be that they're smart enough to just take the standard trigger signal in that mode, too (which would be great as that's exactly how I want to use them :))
  5. Thanks, Pavel! Does the above quote also apply to the Nikon variant? Especially the highlighted part about manual flash at "normal" shutter speeds?
  6. Hi Pavel, Is there a way to update existing boards (in my case the one that ships with the NA-D500 housing) to work with HSS or do we need the new hardware?
  7. Sorry folks, this is no longer available. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  8. I've got someone that wants to buy the whole rig. I'll let you know if it falls through! Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
