  1. Despite being new to underwater photography / videography I rather ambitiously bought a duel set of Bersub video lights of fleabay that are powered by a hefty sized battery canister (dry weight 1.7kg, diameter 80mm, length 200mm). The umbilical cables are no the wet type so can not ('should not' is probably a better description) be removed underwater. I am using an S95 in an ikelite housing on a dual arm tray. As I see it have two options; Mount canister on the camera, under the tray Mount canister on myself, say on the waist strap Given the relative size of the the idea of mounting the canister under the camera is not very appealing to me. The canister will be negatively buoyant so I would have to think about buoyancy arms or floats to make it manageable. On the other hand if I hang the canister on me then ditching the thing in case of an emergency becomes harder, also I foresee kitting up and entries taking more thought. If I waist mount like a traditional battery canister I would need to undo the waist strap and loosen my whole diving harness to take the camera off. Even in non emergency situations it would be nice to detach the canister more easily if say I am handing the camera rig up someone in a rhib. Any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated.
