    Nikon D7000
  1. Looking to sell this as a complete package. I assembled most of this over the past few months, never got anything wet and have now decided to go a different route. Nikon D7000 Camera Body with wall charger and 2 batteries. Original owner, used only as a surface camera (Batteries have plenty of life in them.) Aquatica AD7000 Housing with upgraded depth kit. I'm the 2nd owner, had it serviced and never got it wet afterwards. (Recently serviced by Aquatica) Aquatica 8" acrylic dome lens with neoprene cover (Lens does have some fine scratches) Tokina 10-17mm fisheye lens (Brand new, never used) Nikon 55-200mm lens (Used only on the surface, have always had lens covers on when not in use) Nikon 18-55mm lens (Used only on the surface, have always had lens covers on when not in use) 2 - Housing ball mounts as pictured (Brand new, never wet) 6 - ball clamps (Brand new, never wet) 2 - 8" Carbon Fiber float arms (Brand new, never wet) 2 - 6" Aluminum arms (Brand new, never wet) 1 - YS-D2 Sea & Sea strobe (New with cords & case, never used, removed for just these photos) 1 - Light & Motion Sola Photo 1200 (New with cords and case, never wet, removed for these photos) 1 - Light & Motion Sola Video 3800 (New in the box, never wet, removed for these photos) 1 - Aquatica Port Extension with Lock #48463 (New in the box, never wet) Looking to get $3500 plus shipping for the entire setup. Not willing to separate it all just yet. This would be a great starter setup for someone looking to get into underwater photography without spending several thousand. As of now, I'd like to keep the sale to the continental US so I won't be shipping anywhere else as of this time. Please let me know if you have any questions, I'll do my best to answer them. Thanks for looking.
  2. So if I am using a D7000 with this exact lens that has the hood attached, will I experience the same issue with the OPs original pic above? Should I be using a hoodless Tokina 10-17 lens instead?
  3. Richard, Thanks for the tips, all solid things that I had wondered about. I plan on using acrylic ports as of now due to cost and ability to buff out the scratches down the road. What camera did you use to shoot the video, the D7000?
  4. Finally decided it was time to get my Nikon D7000 into a housing and underwater. Currently have: Nikon D7000 camera body Nikon 18-55 lens Nikon 55-200 lens (pretty sure this will never get underwater, too big) Tokina 10-17mm Fisheye lens Aquatica D7000 housing Considering: 6" to 8" acrylic ports Zoom gears Nikon 60mm lens Sea & Sea YS-D2 strobe Light & Motion 2500 S/F video light Still looking at light arms & strobe connections. I plan on doing quite a bit of deep diving between 150-300' with the camera and I spend a lot of time in dark cold freshwater lakes and would like to get some great shots of wrecks primarily. Also, plan on using the setup in warm clear saltwater whenever I can get out to other parts of the world to get some good shots of wrecks and some sea life of all sizes. How am I doing so far with equipment assembly based on what I would like to do? I'm open to suggestions at this point. Thanks in advance, Capt Chad
  5. Still have this? How bad are the scratches? Sounds silly but can you send me a shot that shows them? Thanks, Chad
  6. I've been diving the GLs annually every year for the past six years and they never disappoint me. We will be heading up to the PI this summer and I can't wait to get some pics like these for my collection. Great shots guys!
  7. Rick, Is this housing still available? Or do you prefer not to piece it out? Thanks, Capt
