I just upgraded cameras, and so I am selling my used (but well cared for!) rig.
LOOK AT ALL YOU GET!
- Sea & Sea DX-2G camera, battery, charger, and soft case (specs: http://www.seaandsea.jp/products/compact/dx2g/index.html)
- Sea & Sea DX-2G housing and LCD hood
- YS-01 TTL strobe, fiberoptic cable, and diffuser (specs: http://www.seaandsea.jp/products/strobe/ys01/index.html)
- Tray and arm, with a couple of other arm segments of different length
- O-ring tool, special Sea & Sea o-ring grease
- Manuals for everything
- A/V cable for the camera that you will never use
- Camera hand straps for land and housing use
- Soft nylon case that is just barely big enough for everything if you pack it in like a jigsaw
I am asking $699. The camera is a few years old now so isn't sold commonly, but you may find this DX-2G and YS-01 "sport package" for $1700 new if you look around. One was listed on ScubaBoard for $950 used a couple of months ago too.
What else will you need to start shooting? 4x AA batteries for the strobe, an SD card and whatever kind of bolt snaps and retractors you favor to secure the rig to you during a dive. (You can use alkaline AAs, but if you want rechargeables you must use low-self-discharge batteries, sold under the Sanyo Eneloop brand among others.)
I have used this camera/strobe combo for a few years. It's a pretty nice point & shoot style rig. There is a little bit of tape residue on the outside of the housing, but the equipment is very healthy--I never had a leak, and you can't see a speck of corrosion on the button shafts. I'm very confident the camera, housing, and strobe will give trouble-free service. (However, I would advise getting new o-rings for the camera and strobe, they are not intended to last forever and it's prudent to replace them every year or so.)
Here are some sample pictures from my Roatan trip in 2010: http://wrongcrowd.com/gallery/fi
The DX-2G is actually a Ricoh GX200 with different firmware, and it's a pretty decent pocket land camera too. I was actually really impressed with the menu systems, it offers a lot of manual control. There is even a "snap" focus mode that takes advantage of hyperfocal distance shooting. Wide angle and macro lenses are available for the DX-2G housing, though I don't have any experience with them.
The TTL flash metering with the YS-01 works pretty well. I always shot with the strobe in TTL and the camera in manual mode, 1/125, and adjusted aperture as needed to allow for more or less background light. The camera and strobe easily lasted for 2 or more dives.
Any questions, let me know.
