    Not to butt in, I use a curly lanyard clipped to a chest d-ring on my BCD. If doing a giant stride off the back of the boat, I splash and go back to the platform to get my camera, I hand the camera up before boarding the boat. If doing a backroll, I hold the camera close to my chest and roll in, when getting back onboard the boat I hand the camera up before getting on board. They usually have my camera in the fresh water camera bucket when I get out, I get it out of the bucket as soon as possible and get it to the camera table to avoid it getting damaged by another camera being dropped in on top of it. I have an older DC800 with the older Sealife strobe and video light and never had a problem. The dc 1400 with the new Dragon strobe and video light is a very nice set up. Hope you get some great pics!!!!

    I agree, that is exactly how I do it. Never had a problem.

    Regarding the original question: I built a tray from a plastic cutting board that extends the base and allows me to hold the camera at the base. I also mounted a GoPro on the opposite side. Works very well.
