FS: Olympus TG-5 Package (Housing; Tray; Arms; Charger; etc.) + Backscatter Wet Lens

Recommended Posts

Due to upgrades (a recent housing purchase for my D750) I'm selling off my 'training wheels' underwater camera setup. 

The camera's reputation precedes itself as one of the top rated underwater compact solutions for the past couple years.  Here's Backscatter's review:


I've used this package on roughly 100 dives on 4 trips over the last 18 months.  Accessories have been added to turn it into a compact, easy to travel and complete solution.  The only thing not included are lights, however a 'universal' mount for a regular dive light is included.  I'm holding on to the lights I've purchased.

I'm looking to sell this as a 'turnkey' package, however, I've broken out the wet lens as that was a recent purchase and is in 'almost new' condition.  That being said, i highly recommend buying it all together for the greatest flexibility.

(This is the actual gear - photos taken yesterday)

All of this was diving with me in Bahamas in June and is in good working condition.

1 x Olympus TG-5 Black Camera (used but excellent condition - it's always been used in a housing)

1 x Olympus PT-058 Underwater Housing for TG-5 (Good condition - some minor scuffs & wear.  Nothing that impedes functionality or image quality.  Lens is clear.)

1 x Olympus UC-90 Charger (Almost New)

2 x Olympus LI-92B Batteries (Good Condition)

4 x 3rd Party Batteries (New condition - will only charge in camera, not in Olympus charger; Use of 3rd party batteries is at your own risk... but they worked for me)

1 x Accessories (Spare O Ring; Olympus Grease; Removal tool; Wrist Strap; Lens Cap; Baggie 'o' desssicant; Optical strobe clip for Sea&Sea style cables)

1 x 52mm to 67mm step up thread converter (Good condition, modified with additional holes for easy removal)

2 x Mozaic Underwater Flex Arms (Plus an additional 'parts only' spare - these have minor damage to the mount base - see photos - does not affect use in any way)

1 x Mozaic Underwater Aluminum Tray (Good Condition)

1 x 'Universal' dive light mount (New Condition - allows for attaching a standard dive light to flex arms)

Looking for $675USD for the package above.

Separately priced is Backscatter M52 120deg Wide Angle Wet Lens.  This was recently purchased and only used on one trip.  It is in pristine condition.


Looking for $325USD for the lens.

All gear is located in Canada and I'm willing to ship worldwide however terms are FCA Calgary.  Buyer is responsible for shipping, insurance, duty, tax, etc.  I can ship on my Fedex account and add it to the bill, however, responsibility for items while in transit would remain with buyer.

Payment by wire transfer in CAD (preferred) or USD - alternate methods and currencies are negotiable.  Item ships upon receipt of full payment.


I am happy to answer any questions and provide a few tips on use/maintenance as well.

Updated price - $550USD plus shipping for the remaining package.
Also open to selling of individual pieces - I believe the housing will work with the TG-6.
