About the conditions: I bought Camera Body + Housing 18 months ago, from a photo professional, in perfect status and I kept them in that way. When I bought the D7000, its shutter count was just above 16k (pretty new), now it's at almost 24k (as you can see in the screenshot on gumtree). And that means I haven't used much my camera, because I used the company's set every day. In the package are 4 different lenses. All of them usable for dry photos, 2 of them for underwater (Tokina fisheye and Nikoor Macro). The Tokina, Tamron, Nikkor 35 were bought brand new from shops. The 60 mm was a second hand but still in great conditions. Strobe bought second hand too and still in great conditions. Dome Port in excellent conditions too (can provide close up shots). Concluding: DSLR with zoom lens, wide angle, 35mm and macro for Street, travels, nature photography. 2 different sets for Underwater: 1)wide angle with 8.5" dome port 2)Macro 60mm with its port On top of everything, don't forget the Vacuum system, that makes you dive in peace, and trust me it's a big thing! Please do not hesitate to contact me for further info, more close up pictures or more. Local pick-up preferred. Cairns (QLD) Australian Shipping needs to be discussed International shipping costs charged to the recipient Regards
  2. Hi, Im heading to Anilao, would it be wise to take with me fish eye lenses and 8inch dome ports? Would it be a waste of luggage space of can be of necessity there? Please guide.
  3. A couple of weeks ago a Wetpixel reader emailed me directly and asked for my experience of moving from a Nikon D800 to the D500 specifically in a Subal housing. The reader thought the answer would be of wider interest to WP readers - so here it is. As I say, this is based on my own personal experience. I'm no pixel peeper or techno ninja - I just really like taking pictures underwater - so some might argue with techie detail or my choice of gear. Fair enough! "I’ve always been a keen macro shooter. Since about 2008, I've moved from a Nikon D300/Subal to the Nikon D800/Subal - and now the D500/Subal. I’ve also moved from electrically initiated strobes fired from the D300/Subal to fibre optic in the D800/Subal. I found the switch to fibre a really good experience. Fibre is so much more flexible and rugged and is easier for using TTL - which I like especially for macro. I make the point on strobes connections as I think it’s an important part of the D800/D500 consideration. FORMAT Both the D500 and the D800 are superb! I found with the D300/D500 and a DX sensor that using the Nikkors 60mm and 105mm worked well for macro. But with the D800 you only need the 105mm. With the FX sensor on the D800 the 60mm is too short. So with the D800 I only traveled with one macro lens and one port, the Nikkor 105mm and the Subal FP-105VR. I have got so used to the 105mm that, so far, with the D500 I’m only using the 105mm and have not gone back to using a 60mm. The D800 gives you LOADs of pixels which makes cropping easy and flexible - ideal for macro; and you can also switch to a DX image (with the Subal you can do this easily underwater) on the D800 which, then, effectively gives you a roughly 160mm macro lens - with no real loss of quality. So highly flexible. HANDLING Handling of the D500 or D800 is, in my view, broadly the same. The D800 Subal housing is slightly bigger (it’s slightly taller - for good reason which I’ll explain) but not hugely so. The controls between the two Subal housings are pretty much the same - the usual Subal high-build quality and superb “feel”. STROBES AND TTL Here’s the big difference: the D800 can fire strobes using fibre or electrical cables (although mine is only set up for fibre) initiated, in the case of fibre, by the camera’s pop-up built-in flash (hence the slightly larger housing). Electric connections use, of course, a hot shoe link to electrical bulkheads. However the D500 cannot initiate firing strobes on its own via fibre optics. There is no built-in camera flash on the D500. You therefore have to buy a strobe initiator - whether the Subal V3 system or a Turtle TTL or something like that. The electronics fits inside the housing and connects to the camera hot shoe and then to LEDs fitted inside the housing attached to the fibre optic bulkheads. When the camera fires, the strobe initiator flashes an LED which then activates the strobes. These initiators, in most cases, will also give you TTL - which comes automatically with the D800’s in-built flash. I bought the V3 system from Subal which is pricey but seems good - although I have had some initial problems with the LEDs failing - which Subal have replaced. WIDE-ANGLE The other thing I really liked about the D800 was WA shooting. I find the images amazing: sharp, beautiful colours - especially the blues. I have sold a lot of images from this especially from trips to the Red Sea. I’ve not yet had chance to test out the D500 in the same way but I really hope I don’t lose that D800 WA capability! SUMMING UP So, on balance, nothing really to chose from between the D500 and D800 by my experience so far in terms of image quality or handling. The only thing I would flag up is the additional cost of the D500 strobe initiator - which, as I have hopefully explained, you don’t have with the D500 and which you do get with the D800. I’ve had my D500 system about 3 months and have done one trip with it and shot about 3000 images. I’m really pleased with it. Was it really worth switching from the D800 with all the costs involved? Honestly, I’m not sure. The D800/Subal is superb. If I had realised fully the implications of the D500 not having a built-in flash to initiate the strobes via fibre optics (which I love!) - and the costs involved of doing this - I’m not entirely sure I would have made the switch.

  5. For sale a complete Canon 7D system of cameras, lenses, housing, ports, strobes, batteries, vacuum system, and all needed accessories to have you in the water shooting the day it arrives. Never leaked or flooded and includes a Backscatter AirLock vacuum system to ensure you have a good seal. Original owner, less than 100 dives since last service by Backscatter. I’ve made the move to full frame so I would prefer to sell it as a complete set. Package includes free email and phone tech support to help you understand how it all goes together and works in case Canon SLRs or underwater photography are new to you. I'm in the Seattle/Vancouver area and in-person transaction and setup is an option. Original purchase price of full system was $13,000 Asking $5,500 plus shipping. Cameras and Housing 2 Canon EOS 7D bodies – 18 megapixel, 8 fps, full HD video, excellent manual white balance for shooting underwater ambient light Includes batteries, charger and CF card. I travel with two bodies, 1 for underwater with specific settings, and 1 for top side. Just in case anything happened underwater I had a backup. Never had anything happen but find having a 2nd land camera is sometimes useful. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/cameras/dslr/eos-7d Aquatica 7D housing – machined aluminum housing with large easy to navigate knobs. Button placement is exactly over the camera button, so once you can navigate the back of the camera you can navigate the housing. Housing was used with optical flash trigger, so no electronics to worry about. All buttons, knobs, and buckles are properly aligned and operate smoothly with no sticking. There are minor superficial scratches on bottom of housing from boat deck. http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_dslr_d7.html Wide angle setup Tokina 10-17 fisheye – probably the most widely used underwater wide angle lens ever made and still one of the best. Includes lens bag. Recently rated #2 best underwater lens of 2017 by Scubashooters.net http://www.scubashooters.net/underwater-life/best-lenses-underwater-photography/ http://www.divephotoguide.com/underwater-photography-special-features/article/underwater-photographers-guide-tokina-10-17-mm-lens/ Aquatica 8” acrylic dome, shade, extension ring, port lock, 2 neoprene covers. The big dome gives great sharpness all the way to the corners of the frame, and is great for shooting splits. http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_ports_18405.html Aquatica 4” glass mini dome with locking port ring, neoprene cover. The smaller dome is ideal for when you need to swim a lot when shooting things like whale sharks and humpback whales. Also useful for close-focus wide angle when you want to get the lens REALLY close. This port is like new, only 8 days in the water since it was purchased for the Wetpixel Isla Mujeres trip last summer. http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_ports_18410.html Macro setup Canon 60mm – a good starter macro lens because the depth of field and focus are much easier than the 100mm on an APS-C 1.6 crop. Perfect length for most fish shots, ideal for things from about basketball size down to about 1 inch. For things from a few inches to 1cm size I used the Canon 100mm. The 100mm lens will not be included in the sale, but the extension ring for it is. Includes UV filter and case. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/lenses/ef/macro/ef-s-60mm-f-2-8-macro-usm http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/macro-lenses Aquatica low profile flat macro port – in excellent condition with no scratches on glass. Also includes extension ring for use with Canon 100mm, and neoprene cover http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_ports_18429.html Focus light Sola 600 – fully sealed rechargeable, 3 brightness levels, also 3 brightness levels of red light for those skittish subjects. Useful as a focus light, and also as primary dive light on night dives. Includes Ultralight ball mount for light, Ultralight ball mount for housing, 1/4x20 stainless stud for mounting, and Ultralight clamp. http://www.divephotoguide.com/underwater-photography-special-features/article/sola-600-focus-light/ Strobes A pair of Inon Z240 Type 4, with optical sync cords and housing adapter. Includes 2 diffusers, manual and original unused sets of clear and red filters for built in focus/aiming light. For the easiest use these strobes can be run in TTL, and in TTL with exposure compensation. This is an easy way to get started and get great pictures your first few trips if you are not comfortable with running manual strobe power adjustments. Once you get more comfortable and want to get creative shooting close focus wide angles with sunballs, then you can run manual. You can significantly reduce the power of the built in flash by a camera setting, allowing you much shorter flash recycle times. The strobes have never leaked and as you can see in the photo the battery compartments look brand new. Also includes a pair of Ultralight 8 inch and 5 inch arms with strobe ball mounts, Ultralight clamps and Stix floats, plus 16 Eneloop batteries in cases and 2 chargers. http://www.inon.jp/products/strobe/z240/top.html http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/reviews-strobes-inon-z240 https://www.backscatter.com/Inon-Z240-Underwater-Strobe Bonus gear if you buy the full package A Backscatter AirLock vacuum system. The port is already installed on the housing, includes manual pump. A must have for peace of mind and good insurance against accidents. https://www.backscatter.com/Backscatter-AirLock-Vacuum-Manual-System-Bulkhead A set of Locline arms with Aquatica mounting hardware and Sola adapters. These were used for a set of video lights I won't be selling. https://www.backscatter.com/Locline-34-Sola-Flex-Arm-for-GatesAquatica-video-h A couple extra Canon lenses for top side use. These are small light lenses that travel well and having an extra backup body for underwater that doubles as your land/boat camera. Pictured below with the same Tokina 10-17 and Canon 60 mentioned above. Canon 17-85 IS USM Canon 28-105 Canon 100-300 Also a variety of O-rings, allen wrenches, and other small bits that may come in handy.

  8. Hey everyone! Like many, I was bitten by the dive bug and being an avid photographer, purchased an underwater camera housing system in 2014 thinking I would dive ten times a year and take a whole heap of awesome photos/video. Alas, real life has a way of bringing you back to reality and finances have dictated that the gear must go to free up funds, having been used on one dive in Canada. I currently live in Ireland but was home recently to take photos (photo files are too big so please contact me via email to see the photos!) of the gear and if there is interest, I will be back in Canada in july for a wedding and could arrange a paypal transaction and ship the gear then. I bought the gear for approx $7200.00 CAD + tax and am looking to sell it for $6500.00 CAD. It is all packed and ready to ship too! This is an unreal deal tbh as some of the gear has never been used and everything else has literally seen water once and not even salt water, for that matter. Unfortunately, given my current location, I cannot take further photos but would be happy to answer any questions you might have to the best of my ability. Thanks and hope I can find the gear a good home with someone who will put it to good use! Cheers, Adam

  13. I have an RX100 Mk1 and Nauticam housing for it. I'd like to get some Macro lenses and trying to figure out best options. So far I've narrowed down my plan to a dedicated +5-7 diopter lens and a more powerful +10-13 diopter lens, rather than stacking lower power lenses, because that seems to be a better approach. Given that, what lenses should I get? SAGA +5 and +10? Nauticam CMC-2 and CMC-1? Bluewater +7 and Kraken +12? SubSea +5 and +10? I have a Kraken wide angle lens (KRL-4) which I like (for the price), but I ultimately want to get whichever lens will be the best value for money. Ideally don't want to go too expensive on this (the Nauticam solution for example), unless I'm given solid reasons to do so. Thanks!
  14. A little selection of macro goodness from a recent trip to Bali. Huge thanks to the entire team at The Underwater Tribe for taking me diving For anyone interested, this is the equipment list and settings etc - Shot on Red Scarlet W, 5K @ 40fps on a 25fps base timeline. Gates Pro Action Housing and Gates GT-14 Video Lights were used. The Nikon 70-180mm macro lens was also used and turned out to be a very versatile lens. The R3D's were edited and graded in Resolve 14.1 and a couple of clips were post stabilised. There wasn't a great deal of grading needed as the H20 OLPF works nicely, especially when white balanced off a white slate. Hope you enjoy.

  21. Hi Everyone, Wanted to share my latest. This was a trip to Roatan Honduras last week. Hope you all enjoy! -Dustin
  22. I just finished going through the majority of my pictures from my wonderful trip to Lembeh this summer. I stayed at Critters at Lembeh Resort. What a wonderful resort and awesome guides. This is truly an awesome place for macro diving. Here are some of the pics from my trip: These are just a sampling of the pictures I took while there. More can be found at: http://www.seansydnorphotography.com/p487843184 I would also love to get IDs on critters I was not able to id. Please leave a comment if you know the id of the critter.
  23. Hi all I'm selling the following: Nauticam 12-50 port 12-50mm zoom/macro gear Olympus 12-50mm lens M67 flip diopter holder for M77 macro ports - allows the excellent CMC 1 or 2 to be used, plus other diopters As a set new this cost £1,125, I'm looking for £700 plus postage Nauticam Macro port and zoom gear set for Olympus M.Zuiko12-50mm (36162) - water marks are visible on the outside of the glass but do not impact photographs (see attached picture). This port can also support the excellent macro 60mm lens.
  24. Hi all! Can anyone recommend a flip device compatible between an Inon UCL-165M67 diopter and a Sea & Sea Macro Port 87 (for ~100mm lenses)? Or some other solution to quickly use and lose the diopter (impermanently!). I'm trying to make an online purchase decision, without either the port or diopter at hand. As both the port and the diopter are threaded, I'm concerned that a flip might affect image quality by adding distance or misalignment. Reassurances on those fronts would be welcome. Thanks so much! Djuna
  25. My new video of small critters from the Lembeh Strait and Anilao. Filmed with a Panasonic GH4 in a Nauticam NA-GH4 housing with either 2 x Keldan Luna 4X lights or 2 x FIX Neo 1000 DX SW II lights. I used an Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens and a Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 macro lens. On some shots I used a Nauticam Compact Macro Converter CMC-1. Xit404 tripod. The UHD footage was downsampled to 1920x1080, allowing me to crop and zoom. Only the wonderpus shot was stabilized. All feedback is welcome. Particularly, are there any weak shots, or uncomfortable edits? I may submit a refined version to a festival or two.
