CHALLENGE #1: BAD UNDERWATER COLOR
Topside, the GoPro cameras are a no-brainer for capturing stunning, wide angle, HD footage in good lighting conditions. Underwater is a much different story, with the camera needing the addition of a red filter to help correct your images from being all blue or all green. Every diver has noticed that the underwater environment is one of the monochromatic hues rather than distinct colors. Depending on your location, objects will take on a blue or green cast at the expense of all things yellow, orange, red, etc. This is because water acts as a filter of red light. The deeper you dive the more the red spectrum is filtered from the ambient light. You can, however, emphasize the existing red light by filtering out the blue spectrum with a red filter.
