    I have to pickup the rest of the gear from my father's house before I can post pictures.


    This setup includes everything you'd need to start shooting underwater with a 1D Mark III or IV except the camera.


    As a bonus, I'd be willing to hand deliver the setup anywhere in the continental US and might even consider delivering it overseas as well.


    Price $13,500


    Thanks for looking,



  2. Greetings All,


    The time has come to part with my Seacam housing upgraded for use with the 1D Mark IV. The claw for the 1D/Ds Mark III is included if you need to change it out. This has not been in the water since it was upgraded by Stephen Frink.


    Asking price is $5,000 and includes the housing only. Price includes insured ground shipping anywhere in the US. Buyers outside the US will need pay for shipping.


    A few pictures are attached. IM me if you've got any questions.











  3. I have a friend who runs a very successful Graphic Design firm and he always tells me, "Good art evokes emotion."


    For me, the images I consider "best" are the ones that trigger an emotional response, good or bad. Immediate images that come to mind are Alex's Bohar Snapper, Eric Cheng's "Screaming Turtle" and Jeff's recent winning image "Fire in the Water".


    Personally, I don't care how you get to where you get as long as you are honest about how you got there. One of the reasons I enjoy taking a class from Alex or attending a class with Jeff is because they are always pushing the boundaries in search of THE image.


    I think I have probably taken three or four truly great images and each of these came after an iterative process where there was more error than success. However, when you finally GET the image, whether in camera or after several rounds of post, and you cannot stop but say, "Wow", then you know you are onto something.


    These would be my guidelines:


    1. Strive to get the best possible image in camera. Sometimes lipstick on a pig is just lipstick on a pig.

    2. Work the image in post.

    3. Be honest in telling how the result was achieved.


    Though I'm not quite the ninja some of the wetpixelers are, the reward for me is in the journey.


    As always, Alex, thanks for stretching the boundaries of the craft.



  4. Michael Reichmann and Jeff Schewe have an excellent tutorial at the Luminous Landscape for Lightroom 3. I also recommend the Digital Asset Managment Guide at Luminous Landscape with Michael Reichmann and Seth Resnick.


    Jeff Schewe is a alpha/beta tester for both Photoshop and Lightroom. He's forgotten more PS/LR stuff than I will ever remember.




    Oh, and everything everyone has said about CS4 for UW Photographers.

  5. The final item up for sale today is a Canon 1D Mark III. The unit has ~35,000 actuations and is about 2 years old. I've just received it back from Canon Service in California for a cleaning and function check.


    Unit will come with Camera, original camera strap, CD Roms, battery and charger in the original box. If I can find the manual, I will include it as well. You can download a PDF manual directly from Canon.


    I'm moving up to a 1D Mark IV, hence the reason for the sale of this unit.

  6. Last but not least today, I have a Canon 200mm F/1.8L lens up for sale. It's an amazing piece of glass and is without question the sharpest lens I've ever used.


    I'm paring down some of my camera equipment to the bare essentials and this lens needs to go to someone who will use it more regularly than me. It's in good shape, I'd say 8.5 out of 10. The hood has a slight warp and there are some places where the paint has worn off due to use.


    It will come with a standard drop in filter along with a polarizing filter. I've fitted it with a RRS mounting foot. If I can find the original foot, I will include that as well.


    $4,500.00 OBO


    If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me.


    I'll post this lens on eBay in a few days.

  7. I'm paring down my Camera gear. Up for sale is a Canon 50mm F/1.0L prime lens. It is in excellent condition at least 9.0 out of 10 if not better. The glass is pristine without any scratches, dust, etc.


    The lens works fine and is the widest aperture Canon's ever made. If you have any questions, please PM me.




    I'll post on eBay in a few days.

  8. Up for sale is a Fisheye HG20DX in excellent shape. Apart from a bit of oxidization on the mounting screw, the unit is in excellent shape.




    1. Torch

    2. Handle

    3. ULCS mounting adapter

    4. Red filter

    5. Additional bulbs if I can find them.


    $300 obo


    I'll post it on eBay in a few days.


    Light has 3-4 dives on it. Looks exactly like the one at this review:



  9. Greetings photo fans, up for sale today are two Seacam Seaflash 250 strobes with TTL for Canon. They have S6 connectors and are not compatible with Nikon systems.


    These units are about 2 years old and have ~50 dives total between the two units. They are fantastic strobes and should go to someone who's going to get to use them more than I am.


    They hold a full charge and I'd say they are in 8 out of about 10 in condition.


    I'd like $1,800 each.


    Pictures are available if you need them.


    I'll post these on eBay in a few days.


    Here's a brief description at Frink's site:



    Here's the review that triggered me to purchase them in the first place.


  10. I visited Ocean Frontiers on the East End of Grand Cayman in June. It was my 5th or 6th trip there and it the diving was great. The reefs were healthier than I'd remembered on previous visits. The staff at Ocean Frontiers is fantastic and I really like the fact that the condos have kitchenettes.


    I've not been diving on the West End of Cayman, where most of the tourist destinations are. My wife and I enjoy the quieter side of Cayman.




    You might find less expensive boarding options at Morritt's but I'd definitely dive with OF and not the Morritt's operator.
