Selling my old Ikelite 7D housing with camera, lenses, strobe and accessories (reason for selling as I'm upgrading to full frame). All up originally cost me around $6000. Asking $1650 for everything.
As expected, some cosmetic blemishes and wear and tear. But importantly, all glass/acrylic scratch free. If you're looking for a solid entry point to DSLR underwater photography, this a pretty good setup. 95% of the underwater images on here were taken with this setup. paulcaiger.photoshelter.com/

Hi all. Selling a macromate diopter for Ikelite housings with modular ports.
Few scratches on the plastic exterior, but glass is scratch free. Example image of the head of a small athecate hydroid with Canon 7D, 100mm lens + macromate.
RRP $599, selling for $250, plus shipping from Massachusetts.

And the new Canon 35mm macro lens is good for fish portraits and does 1:1 macro. Sea and Sea just came out with a port for it, so even more reason to skip the mid range zoom.
Any reports on the quality of this lens yet? The $299 price tag makes me wonder. I am an avid fish portrait fan, but sometime the focal length of the 60 mm is too long (on cropped sensor), and am looking for an alternative.
Also would like to read the article from Alex Mustard if anyone has a link to it please?

My name is Paul. I've been reading wetpixel for a little while, but finally joining the community to learn more, and in particular for the jump from cropped sensor to full frame which I am hoping to do in the coming months.
