Hi Greg

Light inside the dome creates strange reflections.

If you use the internal flash to trigger the strobes on FO ports, you should use the 18472 Neoprene Light Blocking Mask

Besides that, as has been suggested, painting with black mate the silver area resulting from the cut of the shades, and any with lettering, will help.

Hi SMY

As someone else said, the mask box is a nice box for tools and stuff related (save a dive, etc)
On the other box I have this related with photosub and bits for DIY in the case is needed.
Both boxes goes on the checked luggage.

In Topic: O-ring maintenence

I do as TaxiDriver, except if the are muck or sandy dives in the middle. In that case I might do some maintenance (wash the o-ring in still water, clean the groove of the o-ring with a soft lining, small amount of grease on the o-ring) and ready for the next dive.
Besides that, I only open the housing if needed (for changing battery if the camera, or change the lens/port.

All that is needed for do the photography goes on the hand luggage with me. Once I did not have the handles of the housing with me and the checked luggage got delayed. It was a stress. I was not able to photograph on the first day...

The spares parts, spare batteries, chargers and tools in one or two small plastic cases on the checked luggage.
