  10. 4) Sea Sea 5-Pin Sync Cord for Duo Strobes (2) brand new never used (2) YS-120 strobes with ball adapters Please make an offer I would like to sell everything together or 1 Strobe with 2 sync cords. These strobes have been used and are still in great shape. Please see pictures, I have tried to show the scratches due to normal ware and tare. These strobes sold for over $800. new and the cords still go for $100. new. I am not looking to receive ANYWHERE NEAR that amount, every reasonable offer will be considered. Thank you for looking. Items are located in San Diego zip 91941 PayPal, personal check, money order or cash will be accepted. The Sea & Sea YS-120 strobe is an advanced underwater flash system. The YS-120 is one of the fastest recycling strobes on the market providing the right light for the right moment. Its size is just perfect, not too small or too big. The YS-120 strobe provides an audible and visual TTL confirmation, and a heavy duty bumper on the front to prevent damage to the strobe head. The YS-120TTL duo high-performance strobe incorporates Duo circuitry, wide coverage angle (105° X 105°) and short recycle time (less than 2 seconds with 1700mA Ni-MH batteries). The YS-120 is ready to shoot when you are. Guide number is 22 (land). Coverage angle of 105° X 105°(105° X 105° with diffuser) is wide enough to cover a 15mm wide-angle lens on a film or housed film camera or the new Nikon 12mm to 24mm wide angle lenses for digital cameras. 2-step(full and 1/2) light levels are available for manual photography. 4-step control will also be available through the use of an accessory diffuser. Over 280 full power flashes with fresh alkaline batteries and Long-life lithium batteries will give as many as 600 full power flashes with a recycle time of only 3 seconds. Recycle time is almost zero during TTL mode. Ready and TTL lamps are provided on both sides for easy access while using dual strobes. The YS-120 also has an audible tone for "Flash Ready" and "TTL Confirmation". the flash also has a handy test flash setting. The YS-120 is offered in 3 color options (available in certain countries) to match the user's camera system. The YS-120's built-in Duo circuit works with N-type (used in MMIII) and S-type TTL circuits, both used in Sea & Sea housings. Its slave function allows the 120 to be used as a non-corded secondary flash. Specifications: Guide Number: 22 (land, at full power) Coverage angle: 105° X 105° Battery life: 600 flashes (lithium battery, at full power)/280 flashes (alkaline battery, at full power)/140 flashes (Ni-Cd battery, at full power)/320 flashes (1700mA Ni-MH battery, at full power) Light level control: Full and 1/2 (2 steps) Color temperature: 5,100° K (at full power)/4,800° K (with diffuser) Compatible with detachable sync cord Battery requirement: 8 X AA Alkaline (12V), Ni-Cd (9.6V) or Ni-MH (9.6V) batteries Depth rating: 60m/200 feet Dimensions (HxWxD): 102 X 102 X 185mm/4.0 X 4.0 X 7.3 inches Land weight: 1,300g/2.9 lbs Underwater weight: -150g/-5.3 oz Slave function Audible flash ready tone Test flash function Over-pressure relief valve

  14. I am going from an D90 ikelite set up to a D800,and would like some advice on a different housing. Small hands, 5’2” women, would like to be able to reach the controls.

I only used this equipment one time. items: housing housing tray with arms DS 51 strobe strobe arm and cord lense port 50mm lense for macro work I will even throw in another ys 25 strobe for free w/ fiber cord manuals and anything else that came with this gear.
  16. For sale is the 5508.05 port for the Nikon 105D Macro. This will not work with the VR (already tried:(). The front of the port has a some light scratches, but not anything that I would expect to show up in photos. If you receive the port and think that they are really unacceptable you can return it. But I would be very surprised. I am asking $120 shipped anywhere in the cont. US. Includes neoprene covers for both front and rear of port. Front cover has 'DCS' initials on it Thanks
  17. I need some help from you out there. About a year ago I swithed from Sony V1E to the NX5E (w/ Amphibico). It was a struggle ... with Amphibico going out of business and my 1st NX5 having massive electronics problems. Now all seems to be OK technically. BUT... to make a long story short... the NX5 just doesn't seem to deliver the crispy, color rich and clear images I used to get from my V1E. Even in FULL AUTO, the V1E delivered quite acceptable pic's, as where the NX5 needs extensive Picture Profiles to even come close to the V1. Above water the NX5 is great, underwater it seems to forget it's a camera! MY QUESTION TO YOU ALL, has anyone had any experience with the NX5? And if yes what are those? Positive/negative? Any tricks or tips are VERY WELCOME! regards, Evert
  18. For sale. GATES hvx200 housing, with glass flat port and Fathom super wide port (SWP44). Pelicases, o-ring kits, and all original accessories included. $3850.
  19. I'm looking to buy a housing for my Nikon D7000. Also looking for strobes and arms as well.
  20. GATES Underwater Video Camera Housing for Panasonic HVX-200a (works equally well with hvx200). Asking $2900 for housing. In excellent used condition. This is a killer underwater filming setup. Buy my Fathom super-wide port too, if you have the cash- that seals the deal. This housing is rugged, field adjustable, all mechanical controls (nothing electronic to fiz out and ruin your day). It also swims with utter sweetness- you can trim it to perfection and it will hold steady with a single finger on it. Single owner, purchased new and treated with great care- everything works as it did when it was new. Buy this for less than half what I paid and get yourself a great deal. Original accessories included- handles, base plate, trim weights, manual. Comes with flat port (GATES, glass)- the port glass has a few faint marks from being in the marine environment but nothing that affects the image while shooting. Also included- large rolling pelicase for transport, with custom foam. Plus, spare o-ring kits for maintenance. SWP - Super wide port. In pristine condition. $2350. Includes customized pelicase. Amazing piece of glass- this is the one piece of camera gear I have owned that makes the image look even better than it does in real life. Underwater it helps you take incredible images- it was the best investment I made in my filmmaking career. Everyone on any boat I ever dove from had severe camera envy. Port is in excellent used condition. The glass is pristine. Port comes with a large pelicase for transport, and buoyancy tubes so you can trim the housing to perfection. This port also works with the Sony EX1 Gates housing.
  21. Hello all, Did a quick video of couple of clips I got on my trip to Cocos on December 14-24 onboard Okeanos Aggressor. We were not exactly lucky with the conditions for this trip as pelagics had a bit of a week off, I suspect moon phase was probably key (it seems that the current trip is having a blast as my friend is still on board :-/ ) That's my first attempt at editing video somewhat moderately complex so things are not exactly tip-top but I like the result so far. I retrospectively should have done a little bit more videos. In the last 4 days, I fixed the GoPro on top of my dome to have continuous shooting. I had left the GoPro magic filter at home, I would have been interested to see the difference. I missed some close encounters not having that where I had a Galapagos shark shooting straight through a channel at coming head on at me, a tiger shark coming on top and behind us while we were busy looking the other way and another one shadowing me for a minute. I never had the video on for those encounters or was of course busy facing it the other way while my head was looking somewhere els The dolphin shooting is courtesy of Capt Alberto Munoz from Okeanos aggressor, we got them again on the next dive and I was busy trying to shoot them on still (they were a bit more nervous). I started to post some pictures on Flickr [vimeo]56530182[/vimeo]
  22. In middle of November I was invited by a friend to take on the task of shooting underwater 12 women athletes, members of water polo team OXYGEN for the needs of their 2013 annual calendar! Before the shooting I was thinking about this task and waited to meet masculine athletes with their competition swimsuits and the classic water polo hats but instead of this classic cliché image I met 12 beautiful girls full of joy and energy more models than athletes in body shape, ready to transform into colorful mermaids! The girls had already chosen the fabric color and were fighting for the month they wanted to represent. While I was preparing the underwater studio, my assistant Rabea was given the task to dress the models with the long fabrics creating improvised dresses and give brief instructions on how to pose underwater. All girls surpassed the given instructions and all expectations posing with extraordinary grace and confidence, giving me dozens of grate shots! After a six hour shooting without stop we celebrated and laughed a lot with backstage incidents just to regain energy for the editing. As a result, the girls had many stunning images to select for their calendar, which was designed and printed with extra care just two days before the official presentation in a modern bar in center of Thessaloniki. I have to mention that the calendar was not made just for the experience but because the girls were looking for an interesting way to fund their participation in the final phase of the national championship on July - August 2013 So, if someone wants to have this stunning calendar and help the girls in their cause can order it and receive it in a few days!
  23. FOR SALE: Anthis Nexus 40D Housing for Canon 40D or 50D DSLR Camera Owned from new and cared for impeccably. This professional underwater housing comes with the following: Nexus 40D housing (new price over $2600 – when purchased was over $3000) Canon 40D Camera (new price around $1500) Canon 18-55 EFS f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens (good general purpose lens) Canon 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens (New price over $1000) Nexus Flat port to suit 18-55 Lens (New price over $500) Nexus Optical Dome port to suit 10-22 Wide angle lens (New price over $1000) Extra Body and port Orings and other spares. Extras include rubber port caps, Handle extensions both sides, clear filter kit for flash, Silicon grease and original packaging and manuals. Ports are full alloy, with glass optical quality lenses. Nexus Housings have a depth rating of 75m. The wide angle lens and port were purchased new in 2011. This is a fantastic optical glass port and is ultra compact compared to many of the enormous domes you see in water. I am not selling my strobes. As it is, the housing is compatible with any TTL Fibreoptic strobe connections. There are 2 fibreoptic ports on this housing. TTL and the fibreoptic connection is an amazing system that has no electric connections thereby minimising the risk of flooding. The nexus housing is also suitable for standard Nikonos sync ports. Inon make a fantastic 45deg viewfinder that attaches easily providing a FULL view of the frame even with a scuba mask on! I am not selling this. Nexus make a fantastic product. I am selling only to upgrade to a Nexus housing for my Canon 5D. I will be staying with Nexus housings. I would prefer to sell the housing as a complete kit, but will consider offers (eg without the camera or individual ports/lenses). The kit is ready to use now, but will be fully complete with the addition of a strobe. Will consider offers over $3500. A search on the internet found a previously sold housing without the ports, lenses and camera for $2500. You will never buy such a package that is ready to go for such a low price.
