  1. Used on my housing one time and then i sold my FL housing so i have no use for this anymore. Basically brand new and comes with O-rings. US $80 + postage
  2. I dived with Scuba Mobile in Playa del Carmen and they were very friendly, helpful and the guide Dario for the Cenotes was knowledgable, slow paced and very understanding with regards to photography. He even modelled for me and let me attach remote lights to him. I dived with other places but found the service at Scuba Mobile was best in my opinion.
  3. Price Drop $750 USD or nearest offer. Based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at the moment.
  4. PRICE DROP to US$800 for everything. Or nearest offer. I will be based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for the next month so feel free to come have a look if you are in the area.
  5. PRICE DROP to US$900 for everything. Or nearest offer. I have been as honest as possible in the original post. The cosmetic wear and tear is from general use. Functions perfectly.
  6. PRICE DROP to $950 for everything. Or nearest offer as i just want it all sold as soon as possible. Cheers!
  7. I forgot i also have a 6" Ikelite dome port that i will include for free if purchased as a package.
  8. For sale is my much loved FL Ikelite housing, 8 “ dome port, macro port and port extensions. The reason for sale is I am moving to the Ikelite DL style housing therefore everything for the FL setup is being sold. I use this equipment for work so it has been used but meticulously taken care of. Soaking in fresh water and pressing buttons after every use and then soaking in warm fresh water every couple of weeks. There are some cosmetic blemishes which do not affect the functionality or integrity of the housing whatsoever. The dome shade (just the plastic shade not the dome port) has some small cracks in the plastic which I have glued to prevent cracking further. The tray has the usual scratches and scuffs from resting on surfaces. The rubber handles are slightly worn. The neoprene dome port cover has some wetsuit glue on the seams to hold the stitching together. I have included pictures of all of this. Please let me know if you would like more. Please understand this is a used housing so does have obvious signs of use but it has never been flooded and it functions 100% the same as the day I bought it 2 years ago. Here is a list of parts included and prices (if selling individually) Canon 5d mkiii FL housing - 6871.03 $900 Modular 8" Dome - 5510.45 $200 Port extension - 5510.24 $70 Port extension - 5510.11 (attached to the dome port in pictures) $60 Macro Port - 5505.45 $90 Universal zoom and focus gear for lenses $10 I would prefer to sell as a package so price will be $1150USD if bought together. The lenses I have used with this setup are the Canon 100mm IS macro, Tokina 10-17mm and Canon 16-35mm mkii. You can refer to Ikelite’s port chart on their website to see all compatible lenses. I am currently on Tioman Island, Malaysia but will be travelling to Singapore and then Florida on the 17th of July. Therefor you can collect or I can post to you from any of those locations. I accept PayPal, bank transfer etc… Please let me know if you have any questions. You can also contact me at: GrantJPThomas@gmail.com
  9. I used to own the Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 version. If you are going to shoot in low light or night photography then the f3.5 is handy as you can hold the aperture open through the whole focal range length range. If you are using it in an underwater housing be aware that the f3.5 version is slightly larger than the f4-6.5 version.
  10. I often get this with my Tokina Lens. I cut the shade off which exposes the silver reflective metal so i just coloured it black with a permanent marker. This helped however, i do still get reflections if i shoot into the sun or if my strobes are too far forward i.e in front of my handles. Covering the end of the lens with non reflective material would certainly help.
  11. I was only about 10m under the surface. The Mother and calf were resting on the surface in a shallow sandy bay so a perfect opportunity to get a new perspective!
  12. These are a couple of my favourite images i took of this years Humpback Whales in Tonga. If you would like to see some more just head over to my page: www.facebook.com/GrantThomasPhotos/
  13. I would go with the 14-24mm f/2.8g ed as its the wider of the two and will allow you to get closer to your subject giving better colour, contrast, clarity etc. However, i think you should really consider a fisheye for underwater. It's a bit useless topside but i shoot 90% of my wide angle stuff underwater on fish eye. Allows me to get super close and still fit the whole subject in. Good luck!
