In reality, I think I'm just a camera hoarder. After I bought my Canon EOS 5D Mk II, the EOS 40D sat unused for over a year before I felt bad and sold it to someone that was just getting into the field. Same for the EOS 30D after I had first bought that EOS 40D. But eventually I have to realize that my camera would be happier (note the anthropomorphism, no doubt a part of the reason I have trouble letting go) if it was actually being used.
Which brings me to the point of this post.
Our honeymoon trip to Hawaii is coming up in just a few weeks, and my waterproof housing for the 5D Mark II has proven to be... well, a bit difficult to handle. Also scary. So I want to buy a waterproof housing for my Canon G12. Since things cost money and I probably don't need all of these point & shoot cameras laying around, I've decided to sell my Canon Powershot SD780 IS along with its associated stuff.
So here's what I'm selling:
- Canon Powershot SD780 IS camera (specifications from Canon)
- Included Canon NB-4L Lithium Ion battery
- Extra Canon NB-4L battery, unused and still in package.
- Canon CB-2LV Battery Charger
- Canon leather hard case with magnetic clasp
- Canon WP-DC31 waterproof housing with removable flash diffuser
- 8 GB memory card, on this camera that's about 2500 photos.
The main benefits to using a case like the WP-DC31 instead of just buying a waterproof camera? First of all, waterproof cameras aren't known for their image quality -- too many compromises need to be made to make it waterproof. Second, waterproof cameras are limited to about a 10-foot depth, depending on the model. The case is rated to 130 feet.
I'd like to get $200 for everything since that's what the waterproof case costs. :-)
