    I use this small and light weight torch attached to my mask. The light point exactly at what I’m looking at and leaves my two hands free to operate my camera. It is great because the light help me find the subject and focus the camera. Before I had to maneuver the light and the camera at the same time and many times in the exchange process I lost the subject. Otherwise I needed my buddy to light up the subject so I could find it in the viewfinder. The down side is that you have to be careful when you want to look at your buddy because you will be pointing the light at his face.

            i love the size of this lite & the cost is low , but some batteries do not work well with this product.duracell seems to work the best, wont turn on with some brands.sometimes even with duracell i must smack the lite to get it to turn on.this is just a backup lite,mostly daytime diver so its not that important to me. by the way LED version is useless.
