I used to have a simillar problem when I first got the Nikon 10.5mm fisheye lens.

Many of the Nikon lenses have a decorative gold ring and gold lettering on the lens barrel which seems to reflect the light and caused me the same sort of problem.

I used a piece of black elastic which I stitched into a loop which fits around the lens barrel and covers the gold ring and lettering and seemed to solve the problem. It's cheap, easily available, doesn't mark the lens, stays in place inside the housing and can be easily changed between lenses.

Hope this helps.

Hi All,

I thought I was already registered on Wetpixel but it didn't recognise my e-mail address so perhaps this is my first time here.

I am diving just over 25 years and have been actively taking photographs for about 10 years. My first underwater camera was an Agfa 2008 which took 110 cartridge film in a Guppy housing and I used snorkelling about 35 years ago.

I currently have a Nikon D70 in a Sea & Sea housing.

The Diveshop handle comes from some of the guys in my club who differ from my approach to redundant systems when diving, until they break something and come running (or finning) to me for help.
