  1. This is a custom factory painted Aquatica A7r3 Pro Housing for the Sony A7r3 Camera. Includes the Surveyor Vacuum System, Optical Trigger, Front Port Cover and 2nd set of Orings. I will throw in a brand new set of grips, the T-Plates as attached or a pair of the TLC 77553 1" Ball to Flat plate mount. as well as new batteries for the Vacuum sensor and Optical Trigger. Free shipping in Canada. This will also fit the new Sony A7r3a body. I Prefer Wire-Transfer/E-Transfer. I am an Aquatica Dealer and Aquatica Ambassador (check their website). They'll vouch for me ;-) Housing has never flooded, been used on 34-36 dives. C$2800
  2. Thanks Tim, never post commercially felt this was on topic! lol
  3. This is a commercial post, mods, please delete if inappropriate but since folks were asking about UW tripods... You can contact me directly for pricing and configuration thanks Stewart
  4. You're right, there's no glass in the adapters, they're simply translators...I use the Sigma MC11 with the Sigma 15mm FE in EF Mount. It's a fantastic combo.With a bit of surgery, I use the lens inside my Aquatica mini dome and can basically focus on stuff touching the dome itself. The image below had the soft coral less than 6" from the front of my dome. I also have the Sony 16-35f4 that I shoot with the Aquatica 8" Acrylic Dome but
  5. There is a kit for the Aquatica 5dmk3 housing and convert it so it's compatible with the 5dmk4, but you're out of luck with a 5dmk2 to 5dmk3. The 5dmk3 and 5Ds/sr are identical bodies though, so I was able to use the 5Dsr in my 5Dmk3 housing...however, I left the Canon camp a while back and now use Sony. S.
  6. The Aquatica +5 and +10 closeup lenses are designed to pop in and out of the holder using an o-ring system.
  7. The close-up lens holder is held very securely to the older Macro port. Though if you'd like extra protection, a piece of duct tape on the port's edge will ensure that you don't get scratches on the port lip. As long as you smear a bit of silicone grease on the o-ring of the Aquatica closeup lens, then it's easy to pop them in and out of the holder.
  8. I currently use the A6500 in an Aquatica housing, as well as the A7r3 in an Aquatica housing (I am an Aquatica dealer btw) However, I do shoot my system topside and use the Sigma MC-11 adapter. I've shot the Sigma 15mm FE, Canon 24-105 f4L zoom, 70-200 f2.8L IS ver 2, Sigma 150-600 C, EF 500mm f4L IS, EF 100mm f2.8L macro. It even lets me AF using my old Canon 50mm f2.5mm Macro. I can't recommend the Sigma MC-11 enough for use with the Sony mirrorless cameras and most EF mount lenses. S.
  9. I prefer using dedicated lenses myself. I mainly shoot full frame (previously DSLR, now A7r3) I refer the old adage of "jack of all trades, master of none" as my guide. I'd rather be in the "zone" of wide angle or macro per dive than switch back and forth....
  10. The 16-50 is a decently versatile lens, but the Sony 50mm Macro or 90mm is better for those kinds of images. As for wide angle, while 16mm (24mm full frame) seems wide, you'll likely be better served later by the 10-18 Sony or the 16mm pancake with fisheye converter. Here's a video taken this March using the A6500, Aquatica A6500 housing, mix of the 50, 90 macro and the Sigma 15mm FE with the MC-11 Adapter: Full disclosure, I am a dealer for Aquatica... Cheers Stewart
  11. Find a 3D printer service or a friend who has one...also a 3D printed port cap. Used the fuzzy part velcro tape on the inside to hold the cover to the dome shade. Stu
  12. Awesome! Perfect timing as I just ordered a 5dmk4! ;-)....correction...bought a 5dmk4, picking it up in 2 hours! Whee! S.
  13. Just posted my comparo with the A7rm2 and the 5Dsr http://stewartsy.com/?p=465 The DSLR was mounted with the Aquatica AF Macro Port, the Mirrorless has the new Aquatica Slim Macro Port. S.
