Gates AX100 housing & 4K camera

Recommended Posts

I have a Gates AX100 housing and an AX100 Sony 4K camera I'd like to sell. I've had them for about three years; Gates maintained the housing last year. They have accompanied me on many dives and can produce very good video. When I switched to 4K I was surprised at how much the quality and detail increased - I'd not go back to 1K (HD).

 

There are no ports with the housing. I'm keeping them for the next housing.

 

The housing does have a vacuum port for the Gates Seal Check; the fitting is a $210 option and is included.

 

The camera is in good condition, and complete with all accessories that came with it when new.

 

I'm asking $750US for the camera, $1250US for the housing, plus shipping.

 

I apologize for the photo quality - if you need more (hopefully better!) I can supply some.

 

The first group of pictures will be the housing, then the camera.

The housing comes with its manual, the weights for the ports and the camera tray. The black rectangles are the weights and the irregular shaped piece is the tray:post-18574-0-55745000-1525030528_thumb.jpg

After a dive trip, I have a GP34A wide angle port that goes with the housing.

 

The good news is that it does wide angle just fine.

 

The bad news is that there are scratches in the center of the rear glass port that are too deep to buff out, so macro has a blur in the center. I am buying a new port to replace this one, so it can be included with the housing if the buyer would like it.

 

The photos show why I switched to video - my still photo skills are nonexistent. That said, here they are:

The arrow points to the scratches. Other spots are dust.

 

The fun never stops!

What is you deal breaker price? No port or scratched port is not good, but for right price will take it. I have the camera, need the housing. I'm 72 and do not want to put in a lot of money for the few years I have left to SCUBA.

Bill,

 

Since the housing is still a current offering at $2660US without the vacuum port or a lens, I still think the $1000US is reasonable with both! If you're in the continental US I could offer to pay the shipping.

 

BTW, I have more birthdays than you do; I plan to continue diving for quite a while :uwphotog:

 

Tom
