You are betting on a great, used Underwater Video Camera System (camera & housing). It's a great choice for someone starting with underwater videography, on a smaller budget. When working in the resort areas and selling videos the initial investment can be made back just after a few sold videos.
The camera was used only a few times and wasn't in the water for a while. It was purchased around the year 2006. It is in a very good condition and takes great video and still shots. We have tested the JVC camera and the batteries. The only special condition worth mentioning is that on the red filter there are some smaler scratches, which are not a problem once submerged.
The O-rings look all in good condition, but it is recommended to try out the housing without the camera first in the water, as it was not used in a a while.
The camera is sold as it is. It is described to our best knowledge and no returns accepted.
The IKELITE 6014.04 housing:
Molded of clear polycarbonate to provide seamless construction and corrosion proof performance. This "Clearly Superior" design provides full view of the camcorder, control functions, and assurance the system is safe. The base removes instantly with a unique toggle clamp for traveling or attaching of the optional Pro Video-Lite II battery pack. The handle assembly detaches from the housing by removal of just two nuts for packing. The port is threaded for fitting optional 67mm waterproof wide-angle lenses such as the Inon (UWL-100 Type 2) and Epoque (DCL-20). The camera's large viewing screen can be seen through the housing back. Housing operates safely to 200 feet.
This spectacular new JVC digital camcorder is so small that the housing is an absolute delight. A complete housing and camera combination weighs only about 9 pounds. Housing only measures 6" wide; 10.5" wide with the removable handle bar attached; 8.5" high including the removable base; and 8" deep including knobs and port.
