Up for sale is my complete underwater still camera/video package, featuring the Aquatica housing, 8” dome front, a wide angle 20mm lens with focus gear, and including the fantastic Canon 5d mk2 camera itself! Can be used with auto focus (take off the gear ring) or manual focus. I have used this on many successful dives and video pool shoots. Low shutter clicks, as I used it primarily for video. I’m a professional cameraman, and this is from my personal gear collection, priced for a quick sale. You can see my work at www.daveknox.com, I used this exact set-up on the TV shows “Gotham” and “The Big C” for Fox and HBO. I added a watertight e-o video out to send (optional) SD video picture to the surface. You can choose whether to use this feature or not. If you don’t plug in a cable, the housing performs as stock. I’ll include a 50 bnc video cable, if you want/need a surface video feed. The Camera records on board in High Definition HD 1080, of course, and many other settings. I’ll include my “quick-start guide” to shooting video with the Canon camera.
This camera is tested, watertight and ready to dive!
The package includes:
Canon 5 D mk 2 camera body, in Exc+ condition.
2 Canon brand batteries, one Canon charger. (2) 16 GB SanDisk extreme cards.
20 mm Canon 2.8 lens, in Like new condition. Focus gear pre-installed! Included!
Aquatica 5D mk2 pro housing, Exc.+ condition. Looks nearly new. Modified to add video out e-o bulkhead. Handgrips, caps, lube, Pelican case included.
Aquatica 8inch acrylic dome port in Excellent condition, and extension ring. A couple of imperceptible surface scratches, Not brand new, but very nice. (see photos).
Note: You should plan on looking at the strobe connection. The bulkheads and everything is in place, I believe they’re the new Canon-Nikonos standard, but I can’t be sure, as I never use strobe lighting...beyond my capabilities. There may be an easily replaced broken cable, or you may have to adapt your own strobe lighting system. Also: I snipped off the crummy “hydrophone” microphone connection (per Backscatter), as it sounds much better to simply record the sea sound on board the camera right through the dome front.
