Sorry correction it is an HDR 550 XR For sale: US$3000 or best offer. Gear located in Sydney, Australia. Happy to ship worldwide but freight will be added to final agreed price. Light and Motion Bluefin Pro housing: includes 3.2 OLED monitor, external manual control knob (can be programmed for focus, aperture, exposure, etc), one touch white balance, internal flip colour correction filter, flat port Sony HDR550 XR camera (Australian plug) with original box and accessories (with 240GB hard drive) Spare extended life battery for camera (NP-FV100) Fathom 90 lens Flip macro diopter Light and motion housing float Housing tripod mount (tripod itself not included) Monitor shade 2x Sola 1200 video lights (US charge plug) Hand strap for sola light (if you want to make it a dive light) 2x Locline arms 2x large foam floats for arms Spare parts: orings for housing, replacement handle threads Various tools needed for camera (allen keys, tool for removing / tightening handle threads) Purchased approximately 3 years ago, the camera housing from Scubapix in Australia, the lights from Backscatter in the US. Total purchase price of all gear was US $10,000. I haven't used the camera for about 6 months as I have been using my new 5dmkIII but have confirmed all is in working order. Condition of kit: normal wear and tear, continues to take excellent video. Anything that is in less than very good condition is as follows: buttons on the handles are slightly sticky (e.g. zoom buttons) but that is easily remedied by a good soak or if you want you can disassemble the handles and do a proper clean. the wet / dry microphone does not work but I presume it could be repaired at a L&M service centre if it is important to you (I never needed it...). acrylic on back monitor is slightly scratched in a few places but it doesn't impact ability to see what you are filming and it is barely noticeable underwater. Fathom 90 lens has a minuscule ding which can probably be rubbed out by toothpaste if you give it enough elbow grease, but since it didn't impact my footage at all, I have not spent a lot of time trying to do that. The plastic bodies of the charging plugs for the solas have cracked (really thin plastic!) and have been glued or taped - they still work fine but if you want pristine plugs or Australian instead of US version, I'm sure you can get from a Light and Motion Sola dealer. Attached photos should give an indication of scratches, dings, wear and tear... Below are links to a number of videos I created using this camera. It is a very good camera for both wide angle and macro, great colours and crisp focus. At significant depth the white balance gets a bit finicky and the low light performance is not stellar but that's where the video lights come in... https://vimeo.com/61169972 https://vimeo.com/50522064 https://vimeo.com/46614651
Hi Folks - Thought I'd share my most recent project - just some fun shots of diving at various sites in Sydney choreographed to Harry Belafonte's "Jump in De Line" - it was a blast to make - hope you enjoy! Footage includes many of the wonderful critters seen around Sydney - Grey Nurse Sharks, Weedy Seadragons, Giant Cuttlefish, Port Jackson Sharks, Wobbegongs, Blue Gropers, Leatherjackets, skirt wearing dive masters, the normal stuff..
