    H,

    I wanted to know what kind of set up people are using when underwater to secure/store lenses etc when not in use.

    Do you clip them to your BC or use pockets? More for the large wide-angle lenses when you want to use a macro lens or dioptres.

    I used to use a lens caddie but found it wasn't really that good for my heavy wide-angle.

    Cheers,

    Lewis

    In my experience the lens caddy works fine if it is located at the right point on one's rig. Out at the end of an arm is bad; close to the camera, and close to a buoyancy element, is much better. Also, I've changed over to all bayonet mounts to avoid the problems of screwing/unscrewing.

    I shot a screw in UWL-04 for years, and I agree with tursiops. go bayonet mount.
