Hey all, I'm selling my old compact camera set up as I have upgraded into the M4/3 world. Great for someone starting out or someone that just wants a great little compact system on the cheap! Included: - Canon S90 compact camera. (can't for the life of me remember how much these were). - Fisheye FIX90 Aluminium housing (hardy beast, about £600 new when it was available). - Inon UFL 165-AD fisheye lens. (£400 brand new) - Bayonet-style adaptor to attach fisheye to housing (forgotten exact the model, perhaps 28AD?) (shockingly this tiny thing is hard to come by and sells at a ludicrous £150+ brand new, last time I checked). - Paperwork, charger, 3 batterries (x1 Canon original, x2 3rd party). This set up has been fantastic for me starting out in the world of underwater photography. All of it is in great, working condition. Never flooded. Last used in April this year with whale sharks in Tanzania. See gear & sample photos below Note with the fisheye lens: 1) Lens in great working condition. Little more than light cosmetic scuffs on the outside. No scratches on the lens that effect image quality. 2) The tiny screw in the bayonet mount was lost during a trip to Indonesia. Consequently, whilst the mount still works a treat, it does rotate when you attach and remove the lens. The mount won't come off and it will not rotate during a dive unless you twist and turn it yourself - the problem is easily solved by attaching the lens before the dive, lining it up properly using the LCD screen, and off you go. Perhaps you can source a little replacement screw to rectify this, however it was never much of an issue for me. Anyone that has done some research on using this lens with this housing will know it is fantastic for wide-angle (it has been used by me primarily for photographing mantas and whale sharks). Below are some reviews of the housing and the fisheye set up: Housing Review with Lens discussion More on Fisheye Lens & Set up I am UK based. Would be willing to sell the lens separately to the housing+camera if people wish. Otherwise looking for £550 for whole set-up + shipping/postage. Thanks!
Hey all, This is my first post here. First of all, I apologize if my questions have been asked before. I've tried using the search function here and on other websites, but I can't find any satisfactory answer. Please point out to me to any relevant thread. I bought a Canon S90 and Ikelite housing in 2010, but I haven't had much chance to use them. So I am still very new to this. Recently, I bought an Inon D2000 and I am now planning to buy some wet lenses, macro and WA. From my readings, I have my eyes on Inon UCL-165M67 and FIX UWL-04. If you know of better alternatives, please let me know. My Ikelite housing has a 67mm port, but I'm thinking of getting an adapter ring that will allow AD lenses to be mounted onto my port. Something like this http://www.bristolcameras.co.uk/p-10-bar-67mm-to-ad-mount-adapter.htm. My main goal is to facilitate easier lens changing underwater. My questions are: 1. How do I mount a FIX UWL-04 to the now AD port? 2. Will the added distance change the capability of the UCL-165 and the UWL-04? 3. Assuming I use some kind of adapter, do I need to zoom in to avoid vignetting with the UWL-04? 4. Is it worth changing to AD lens? Or should I just stick to M67? 5. Are there better alternatives (in terms of IQ) to UCL-165 and the UWL-04? My plan is to shoot the wet lens with the current camera for a year or so, before upgrading the camera. Thank you all. Looking forward to answers. Regards
Hi, fellow divers. I'm going to upgrade my underwater photography setup and would like to sell my present housing and cameras (main and backup). Everything is in excellent condition--I'm somewhat of a fanatic when it comes to maintenance--and this would be a great way for you to get into underwater photography or upgrade from a plastic housing to a metal housing. You can see some of the shots I've taken with this exact setup here: http://www.flickr.co...tos/firststage/ HOUSING AND CAMERAS Fisheye FIX housing for Canon Powershot S90 (original cost $871) Fisheye FIX strobe mask for an optical trigger cable to your strobe (original cost $32). Fisheye FIX spare O-ring (original cost $16) Two Canon Powershot S90 cameras, one used in the housing and the other still new and unused as a spare (original cost $306 x 2 = $612) Canon spare battery for S90 (original cost $39) I'll only sell the items listed above as a complete setup. The price is fair and fixed at $785, which is half the original cost ($1,570). I'd be happy to show you my receipts from Backscatter and Amazon. I don't want to haggle so please don't ask. ADD-ONS FOR ultra-wide (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) SHOTS AND MACRO SHOTS I also have two add-on lenses that greatly extend the capabilities of the original housing. They can be used with my new housing, so I don't actually NEED to sell them, but if having them would make the main package more attractive to you, I'll sell them for $469, which is 2/3 the original cost from Backscatter ($704). With them, you can have a totally versatile setup for everything from wide-angle to macro shots. The basic housing does have a flat glass port so you can of course use the camera's built-in zoom to go from wide to fairly close-up, but these lenses provide a much wider range of options for amazing shots. Fisheye FIX ultra-wide (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) Lens UWL-04 (original cost $435) Fisheye FIX Easy Close-up Lens, 2 elements (original cost $217) Fisheye FIX 52-mm adapter, necessary to mate housing with Easy Close-up Lens and ultra-wide (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) Lens (original cost $52) WHAT ELSE YOU WILL NEED You'll need an underwater strobe with an optical trigger cable (I shoot a Sea & Sea YS-01 with this housing), an arm to hold the strobe, and a tray or other way to mount the strobe arm to the housing. The hardware that I like the best comes from Ultralight Control Arms (ULC). I'll be re-using my present strobe, tray, and arm with the new housing so they aren't for sale. SHIPPING WITHIN THE CONTINENTAL USA Get in touch with me by email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in this package, and let me know your zip code. I think that insured ground shipping from California via UPS will be between $20 and $40 depending on where you live. I'll charge you whatever UPS charges me. PAYMENT Payment accepted via PayPal only, please.
Due to a camera upgrade, I have a canon S90 camera & the FIX housing to suit for sale. The camera is in mint condition with no marks at all & the housing has the usual scuff marks on it. The front port of the housing is in mint condition also but the rear door glass has a couple of scratches but they are on the outside of the housing & no way effect the pictures. Also included is a 67mm threaded wide angle lens & a red filter to suit. The housing has the 67mm threaded adaptor on the front. Located in Sydney Australia but happy to ship at buyers expense. New cost was around $2000, asking $600
