For Sale: Nauticam Black Magic Pocket housing, Panasonic 7-14m Lens, Dome, Fix Neo Lights

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I'm a documentary filmmaker who just wrapped up 6-months of shooting a documentary series on the invasive lionfish in the Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean. As a filmmaker, I bought a nauticam housing for my Black Magic Pocket Cinema camera to be able to shoot in beautiful RAW with a flat picture profile. It takes some coloring once you're done, but the results are pretty great.

 

I'm moving back away from the sea, so I won't have time to pursue my new underwater video passion for a few years. But this is an awesome setup (and small, light, and generally easy) for someone who is looking to really get into underwater filmmaking.

 

Here is an example of some of the stuff I shot with it (this was all done within the first 2-3 weeks of shooting underwater, so I'm sure a seasoned pro could get a lot more out of it): https://vimeo.com/118862781 (password: INVASIVE).

 

Here is the full list of everything I have for sale. I'd like to sell all the scuba stuff together (housing, dome, lights), but am also open to selling individual items.

 

Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera Zacuto Black Magic Viewfinder Panasonic 7-14mm Lens Metabones Speed-Booster, Black Magic Nauticam Housing Wide Angle Port - Nauticam Fix Neo Light 1 Fix Neo Light 2 Nauticam Zoom Ring Nauticam Extras - clamps, arms.

 

For the whole package, I'm looking to get $4500, but will take best offer as well (all this equipment new is around $7000).

 

Everything is in great condition. I rinsed each piece of equipment thoroughly after each dive and lubed up the O-Rings before almost every dive. The housing has never been flooded and comes with the electronic vacuum check.

 

A couple of small notes:

- The nauticam doesn't line up perfectly with the record button, so you'll need to put a tiny bit of padding on the grip of the Black Magic (I use a bit of microfiber cloth folded twice) to line up the record button with the actual depressor. It works fine once you spend a few minutes getting it right.

- The dome has a small buff on it. Not sure when or how it got smudged, but it doesn't show up in any of the underwater footage. If you're above water and pointing it against a blue sky, you can see it at the lenses widest angle (7mm), but zoom in at all and you can't see it anymore.

 

I really, really like this system and the Black Magic takes some beautiful images. It's also really easy to color correct and enhance in the edit. Whoever ends up getting the system, I'll make sure to pass along some resources that make it really easy to bring out all the beautiful underwater colors this camera picks up.

 

Thanks!post-50318-0-34307900-1427250319_thumb.jpgpost-50318-0-84645600-1427250320_thumb.jpgpost-50318-0-26493800-1427250322_thumb.jpgpost-50318-0-04780700-1427250324_thumb.jpgpost-50318-0-91399400-1427250325_thumb.jpg
