I am selling a turnkey Nikon D7000 Nauticam system. I have used this setup to take photos that have been on magazine covers, the Seattle Times cover, and numerous other commercial applications.

Does anyone out there live in/near Salem? If so are you willing to help conduct a quick craigslist transaction for me and send me the item afterwards? I'm willing to reimburse your time and effort with a printed photo or two :)
