HIRE: Underwater Camera Kit
Diving holidays are increasingly popular, and many say that exploring the ocean For those of you going off on a diving holiday, either Snorkel or Scuba, and do not want to buy an expensive underwater camera, then Norwich Photo can offer you an alternative – hire our camera kit!
We have two kits to choose from.
KIT 1 Reefmaster Sealife DC500 MAXX kit – 5Mp compact camera with enclosure & two underwater flashguns
Whilst the kit is not the latest or greatest, its not the most expensive either, and a good option for a beginner. It contains a 5 megapixel camera, which is sufficient to print out between A4 and A3 in size. This kit comes complete with two underwater flashguns, batteries and chargers, and all self contained in a tough Peli Case, which is suitable for transportation, either as carry-on baggage or checked backage in an aircraft hold (check with airport/airline first)
The camera’s waterproof housing and flashguns are rated to 200 feet ( 60 metres) which is likely to be sufficient for most people.
Sealife DC500 5mp digital compact camera - supplied with battery, charger and necessary cables
Sealife DC500 water proof camera enclosure - suitable for depths up to 200 feet / 60 metres.
24mm SL970 Wide angle lens and SL972 underwater dock
Two SL960D underwater flash guns (strobes) including 2x fibre optic trigger leads (SL962), two sets of rechargeable AA batteries and chargers
Plus an assortment of other useful bits and bobs, including camera cleaning items, a selection of international mains adaptors and so on…
All supplied in a sturdy, bright yellow Peli 1500 case (external dimensions LWD 470mm x 357mm x 176mm)
All you need to provide is a memory card – the camera takes SD (Secure Digital) memory cards, the same as most compact cameras, and a 1 or 2Gb card should provide plenty of space for a holiday. If you ask nicely I might be able to find one of these as well (it uses a different format to my DSLRs)
This setup can be hired for just £ 50 per week
Please contact me regarding availability and collection / return times. The kit could be sent but I would prefer it to be collected and returned in person. Collection can be from Dussindale or Mulbarton or at points in between at a mutually convenient time.
A damage deposit of £ 200 would be required upon collection. This deposit would be returned after the equipment has been checked.
