The link is to Reef but Backscatter has them also. The price is right and the adapter can be used in place of the plastic lens barrel protector that slips on (and Off!!!!) and as well can be used to mount filters, hood, accessories for both above and below water shooting.

I also recommend this for shooting in bright light and amphibious work, a monitor hood and yes this one fits the FIX90 housing:

What have you guys gotten that the rest of us need?

Great tips! I've got nothing to share yet, but I am headed to Singapore on Monday to hit the camera shops. Scubacam & Oceanic Focus, does anybody know others? I'll let you know what I score for the rig!

Hi,
I got the hood. I couldn't get it to fit quite right and it disappeared from its tether on the third dive. I'm not bothering to get another.

Frankly, I would very much like to remove the hood rails. I doubt I'll ever dive (consistently) anywhere bright enough to justify having one, since I've done fine without one at various places around the world as it is. The hood rails conceal part of the screen, and I would rather see the full screen.

You can removed the rails, simply unscrew them.

The hood has to be trimmed to fit the rails, this is in the instruction sheet that came with my hood, I sort of like mine.
