Hey fellow Wetpixelers! I'm re-advertising my Subal ND800 housing which I'd like to sell. I also have a Nikon D800 to sell with it. Actually two camera bodies are available if you are keen! The housing is in perfect condition, well-used, much-loved and never dinged, chipped, flooded or abused as you can see from the attached images. Similarly the camera which has just under 9000 actuations and has always been used in the housing. I have more images available which I can send email if you contact me. The equipment is located in Netherlands but I can get it to the UK easily and expect to be in the US this summer. Price is £1950/USD2500/€2200 for the housing; and £700/USD900/€775 for the Nikon D800. I'd be happy to do a deal for housing and camera(s); and would also be happy to include with the housing a Vivid Sentinel Series 4 vacuum valve (not shown in images) and the manual pump etc. All boxes, manuals and original bits and pieces included for both housing and camera(s). The second D800 body has a slightly higher actuation count and would cost slightly less. Shipping costs dependent on location. Payment by bank transfer or PayPal (buyer pays charges). This housing has been brilliant and I have got some cracking images out of it especially using the D800's built-in flash to trigger strobes by fibre optic cables. With my Inon Z240s this gave me very good TTL. If you are serious about an FX housing, I can heartily recommend this Subal - the Rolls Royce of housings at a bargain price!
Folks I'm selling my much loved 4-year old Subal ND800 housing which has the Type 4 port size. It is in top condition, has never been dunked, flooded, dinged or drowned. I have really looked after it and it has produced some cracking images for me. It comes complete with the original box and accessories. I'm looking for £2250/2500/$3000 which would include shipping in the EU - anywhere else negotiable. Photos attached. For more info, PM me. I also have a Nikon D800 for sale which I am listing separately. I'd be happy to do a deal if you are interested in the housing and camera. Thanks! Tim
Hi All, I've been having a frustrating time with a malfunctioning control on my Subal ND800 housing (shooting D800E). I've corresponded with both Subal and Backscatter and have tried to troubleshoot via email and phone, but haven't had any success in finding a solution, so I'm hoping that someone here might have run into this problem and found a solution already. One of the controls on my ND800 housing does not operate as intended, it's the "UP" button on the multi-selector on the back of the camera. When pressing the "UP" button instead of moving the AF point up, it moves diagonally upward and to the right, sometimes even in an arc with the last positions going downward and to the right. My best guess is that this is an issue having to do with too tight of tolerances and fit, since the problem only arises at depth, when there is a tiny amount of compression between the main housing and the backplate with the controls due to the main o-ring being squeezed. Here's a video with the camera in Live View mode so that you can see what I mean. Have a look at what happens to the AF point when the UP button is pushed. http://youtu.be/DKeVmzOWy8E I do notice that if I push on the button really gently it goes upward at first, and pushing harder (as in when you're just using it regularly) makes it float upward and to the right. However, I'm a little hesitant to start grinding down the pin on the other side of the button just yet, hoping that someone out there might have another fix or confirmed that this would do the trick. I know that what really needs to happen is this housing needs to be looked at by Backscatter in person with my camera body in hand. However, I'm on a 4 month trip in Southeast Asia and it's just not feasible to ship or fly everything to Monterey from here right now. Also, since the issue can't be reproduced on dry land I know it's not going to be a snap to get this sorted out even if/when I do get it back to Backscatter. I would be much, much happier to get it fixed here and so I can enjoy shooting this rig for the remainder of my trips. It's a very annoying problem to have as I use the multi-selector often as some of you might, and I've already missed quite a few shots as a direct result of this problem :'(. Any helpful advice or solution would be greatly appreciated! I have two D800E bodies and the problem is the same with both of them. Thanks a bunch, fingers crossed.
