    Hi guys, First we love Backscatter and have bought most of our camera gear from you. I am looking for a replacement for the GoPro8 for our YouTube channel A Diver's Life. They 8 video quality took a nose dive from the 7 - so much so that every video person on the island has stopped putting Backscatter filters on their gopros as the GoPro tries to be smart and hoses the picture - white balance is totally hosed often turning the video to a blue tint. We are also used to shooting in manual mode to get better quality. We use the Panasonic GH5S for our video but there are places where we shoot that you just can't take in a big camera housing with a dome port - especially at much of the dive sites on Bonaire's east coast. Also, I would like a camera that is small enough so that I can take it with the GH5S and shoot macro on some dives. We want a portable action camera that takes much higher quality video than the GoPro but is small enough to be able to take in rough conditions. We want it to shoot macro as well as wide angle and the video quality has to be great quality when shooting at 60fps 1k and 4k. What do you recommend? This looks a little big for what we need although I don't plan on strapping anything on our heads.
