Hi,

I plan using Lee filter color filter to corect the WB of my gopro for green water just like the here:
http://www.polarprof...magenta-filter/

Does someone have this filter and can compare the color with the Lee filter swatch book or website ??
http://www.leefilter...olour-list.html

Look like the same color as Magical magenta to me http://www.leefilter...l#795&filter=cf

What do you think ?

Green water filters are selective and therefore need the camera to have custom white balance
The gopro has only auto white balance so this kind of filter will just not work unless in very shallow water
You will get better results with a warming filter with a magenta tint like a polarpro or a backscatter red filter
