I use the Nikon CP995 in an Aquatica housing, together with a single Sea&Sea YS-90DX strobe.

I am curious to find out which camera white balance setting could give the most faithful result with this strobe. The colour temp of the strobe is 5500K which is daylight, however I would imagine that the water between the strobe and the subject would serve as colour filtering, thus making the light bluer, .

I am aware that the printer/paper combination one would use would have a marked effect on the final result, however my reasoning is that if one starts from the most faithful colour capture possible, then things should be more predictable from then on.

Or am I over simplifying things? :P

Thanks for any advice/experience shared

I would recommend you use either "Speedlite" or Auto white balance when using your strobe.
