Lens Solution

Does anyone know what the best stuff to put on a housing lens, to make the water bead off it. I was thinking giving it a good wash with washing up liquid, but does anyone know of anything better,..

Spit on the lense, similar thing as you would do with a diving mask.

Also, keep the housing submerged until you want to take a shot. Otherwise you'll get droplets of water on the lense.

And you can buy little bottles of anti-fog type stuff for dive masks from dive shops. Pressume this would work too.
