UNDERWATER CAMERA GEAR FOR SALE
Check out the gear for sale and feel free to contact me if you have any questions
All of the equipment I’m selling is of course used but in 100% working condition. I just used it last month on a job for photo and video and no problems at all. The camera is a workhorse and as well the housing.
The Nauticam Housing for the 1DX is modified with a special frame to work as handle and as an attachment point for a monitor. You could remove it but I found it easier to adjust the monitor and keep a nice buoyancy.
The DP-230 Domeport has a tiny scratch but its outside of the field of view of all the lenses I used from 15mm up to 70mm with the dome port. Was used last month without any problems.
Working with the 1DXII and the housing for quite some years now I can only recommend using the monitor with it. Not only for video. I’m using it as well for macro photography and shots where I couldn’t get in a good position with the viewfinder. It made my life so much easier. Some exceptions are Freediving shots where I used the 45° Viewfinder or sometimes only the standard viewfinder.
I used mainly 3 lenses - 100mm macro, 16-35mm II and 24-70mm II. Thats why I have two different extension rings. I tried to use only the 70 extension ring but it ended up in corner softness with the 16mm. So I bought the 80 extension ring to solve that.
Unfortunately I don’t have the zoom ring for 24-70mm anymore but if you have a 24-70mm its a great lens to use with the 1DXII underwater.
Not on the picture are some spare cables, replacement parts and maintenance stuff (grease, o-rings, etc) which will of course come with the housing. As well not on the picture is the 45° Viewfinder from Nauticam.
Why I am selling? Well, the 1DX and the Nauticam housing are great for a variety of different jobs (photo and video). And with the 502B monitor and a SDI surface cable it was even good for a smaller film production. But it's time for me to upgrade and so I have to leave the 1DXII behind.
