How do I juggle my computer, a camera, and a light with two hands ?

    noted, that totally makes sense, but I’ll take the trade off in risk. Found when I had it on my wrist it was more dangerous as I was less attuned to it.

    Sola lights have a very useful hand mount. Your computer can be clipped to a variety of easy to view places places. Lights also can be incorporated into your GoPro rig - Suptig makes some. (Not a primary light.)

    Obviously this is just my opinion, but having been to Mermet a few times, I don't recommend trying to take a camera and light into those structures until you feel pretty competent (many more than the 0-24 dives). The spots you mention can feel tight, and if the viz is bad (which it often is), it could be more challenging than you're prepared to negotiate yet. However ... the recommendations about a head mounted camera/light would work well with out compromising buoyancy and ability to keep attention where it belongs to keep you safe. But again, just my opinion. :wink:
