Good question! As far as I've figured out, there are 3 options, each with its own disadvantage, depending on your make of housing and lens/port configuration. If you have a "proper" wide angle lens like the 7-14, then you can use the technique that thetrickster mentions. The disadvantage is that it's a bit fiddly. You could also use a clip-on filter in front of the dome, like Mangrove's CF-D127: , but this has the disadvantage that at shallow depths (e.g. less than 5m) you'll probably get reflections. Finally, you can use a screw-on filter, which is what I use with my PZ 14-42 lens. The disadvantage here is that it's a flat port, and the so-called wide becomes more like 19mm. Decisions...
