I saw this link pop up on my Instagram feed, photographer Ash Murray is selling a unique camera, housing and Over/Under port combo, so if you’re interested in stepping up your over/under game then get in touch with him:
The time has come for an up grade, everything is for sale as a package only. Canon 60d (3yo)and tokina 10-17mm. Dave Kelly water housing serviced every 3 months with out fail plus new o-ring, nuts and trigger. Plus the “monitor port” I’m sad to be selling this cause it’s just so unique and the half in half outs are endless with this incredible engineering by Dave. $4750ono no stupid offers. P.S camera and housing are to be serviced this Monday till Wednesday, so pick up will have to be after this date. Tag your friends who are looking for gear or starting out. Ash DM me or email email@example.com
Dave Kelly housings are well regarded and although I haven’t used one I’ve written about them before and I’m sure that it would be a good option for shooting surf.
The main item here though is the unique Monitor port, it’s an over/under port which I guess is made from an old monitor housing, or maybe it just looks a lot like it, either way it’s not something I’ve seen before, I think it would be great for flat water and especially swimming pools for fashion style shoots, where it would be easy to set-up the shot with such a large port.
If you’re interested in getting half and half style shots showing above and below the water in the same image then there’s a few alternative options.
Over/Under Port Alternatives
I use an 8″ dome port on my Aquatech housing, and most other manufacturers will offer something similar for their housing systems, read up on why you need this style of port in my Water Housing Users Guide part 2: which port should I use?
Should you be on a tight budget you could check out Ian Matsko’s DIY GoPro Dome design, and if even that is a bit steep for you you should keep an eye out on the site because soon I’ll be bringing you a cheaper option that a reader sent in that will let you try out this style of shot with your GoPro.
