What to buy Next....
« on: 22 Aug 17, 17:58 »
Hello Experts!

I have been shooting with D80 with YS110a + ikelite housings for close to a decade (mainly macro). I been wanting to change out to a better camera but was reluctant to do so because of the sunken cost in ports, housing, etc. I don't mind selling off my stuff and getting a fully new set. But some question remains.

1) How much do you think I can get for my old set (ballpark)
2) What camera should I get next and how much will it cost (so many in the market now, and I have lost touch with everything nowadays)
3) Ideally... I would want a camera that can give me the flexibility to do macro, wide angle, and video.

1) Electronics stuff not worth much these days. Ikelite housing worse.
2) Depends on if you're sticking to Nikon or not. D500 is very capable. If not maybe a 2nd hand D7100/7200
3) Can consider mirrorless systems from Sony/Oly/Pana
Canon 5D MK III
Canon 100mm L Macro, Canon 16-35mm L, Canon 8-15mm FE, Nexus Housing
Sony A7R2, A6300 Sony 90mm Macro, Nauticam Housing
Inon Z-240 Strobes, Weefine Video lights, FIT Focus lights
