How Many Rigs ?? How long been Shooting U/W?

Recommended Posts

I was curious as to How many Complete Rigs folks have had ? Gone thru-or still own

And How long they have been taking photos underwater?

This goes for film as well as digital setups.

 

For me it goes like this

1 point and shoot-120MM? Yellow piece of junk-1982-sold

1 Ikelite housed older nikon 83-had 1 month sold

I Nikonos V mid 80's-still have

1 Nik III-mid 80's-still have

1 f/3 in aquatica 3 housing-85-still have

another f/3 in aquatica 90's-still have

2 f/5 in 2 subals in 2005-still Have

 

started to shoot u/w in 82- still at it

 

Whats your history??

Current camera: Nikon D2X in Subal ND2H housing.

Model's camera: Nikon S3 in WP-CP5 housing.

 

But I also have several older film systems, including Subal F100, 2x Subal F801 (N8008), Ikelite F801, Nikonos V & III and Hasselblad SWC and 500C/M housing.

 

Of these, the 2 Subal F801s, Ikelite F801 and Hasselblad were all donated to me (and none have ever been my main camera).

p.s. Have had other stuff that has now been sold on.
