    WOW, manual white balance.

    Been shooting underwater video for fun using a Gates housing and Sony 900 camcorder. Been happy with the results, but noticed a clear decline in color below 60 feet.

    Finally got around to doing a little experimenting with manual white balance.

    HOLY SMOKES BATMAN.

    Here is a clip shot at 90 feet without lights, white balance manually set using the sand.

    I have NEVER got footage with color anywhere near this good below 60 feet using auto white balance.

    Looks great - Love that MWB!
    Psalm 104:24,25
    O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
    So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
