    Kodak Zi8 with Ikelite Underwater Housing and many extras
    Includes:
    Kodak Zi8
    Kodak manual
    Original Kodak Battery
    Two additional batteries
    Power Cable
    AV output cable
    HDMI cable
    Transcend 16GB Class 10
    Ikelite 5660.08 Underwater case for Zi8
    Ikelite Port Adapter
    Bower 67-46mm conversion ring
    Intova 46mm IFRED Red filter
    Zeikos Wide Angle / Macro Lens with cover
    Screen clothe
    Custom aluminum bar for mounting on tray
    Over $500 new in 2010. Now $250 (less than the price of just the Ikelite housing)
    Priority Shipping in US $15. No out of country sales.

    Camera works like new. The only minor defect is in the unused Ikelite Red filter. It has some scratch marks. However, this filter is not used as there is a new red filter on the wide angle / macro lens. I am including the unnecessary filter only because it came with the unit. Check out some of my dives on Youtube. This video YouTube - Wreck Diving Cartanza Senora St Thomas USVI with Dr Mark 1-7-11.flv
    Wreck Diving Cartanza Senora St Thomas USVI with Dr Mark 1-7-11 was done with this camera setup. Of course the Youtube version is greatly compressed into flash and doesnÂ’t show the High Definition quality.[​IMG]
    A picture of the actual camera setup can be viewed at zi8
    I will answer questions from this posting.
    Have a great dive day!

    Yes, still available. I will remove from the post here when it sells. I only have it listed here. Mid May I will raise the price and put it on Ebay.

    I apologize but no out of country sales. The last camera I shipped to Europe cost almost $200 for shipping which makes the deal less attractive and more difficult.

    Out of curiosity is the wide angle lens an underwater one or did you just attach it to the housing and it worked fine?

    Hi Ktl: The wide angle lens was not made for underwater but worked fine. I used the special Ikelite Port Adaptor to connect it. To allow the lens to depressurize I simply flooded in between the macro and wide angle. Of course port adapters and red filters etc all use the same procedure of flooding passively to prevent pressure issues. The wide angle lens sold by Ikelite (though not made by them) costs more than the housing and camera combined. So I choose a less expensive route that served me well.
