Typically I set the WB to Cloudy. I like to have a consistant WB rather than have it "jump around" in Auto.  Especially in a situation where everything was going to be very constant in color and contrast.  Mainly do this because, like most here, I shoot in RAW and run everything through Photoshop.  As mentioned most of these shots where adjusted to the max of my beginner skills.  


Here is an article written by a duo from Travel and Leisure that were in our group.  They were great and really made it a fun trip.  Sean was shooting a full frame Canon, till it flooded, in the rinse bucket, where the operation wanted you to keep your camera, in 3ft of chop.....

Still playing with the RX100IV.  Will say the autofocus is quite good.  We had some rough days and you were stuck floating/bouncing on the surface, carrier was strict about duck dives.  So I was just hanging the camera below me and shooting away.  Very few shots out of focus.

For years now I have been shooting the Sony RX100 series underwater.  http://aquabluedream...al-de-evolution  With rumors of the new RX100V out there I picked up the RX100iV on Ebay.  It is housed in a Nauticam housing.  At first I mounted the Nauticam  WWL-1 on it, but due to conservative/very safe/very "respectful" way our carrier conducted the in water moments I left the WWL-1 on the boat and just shot it as is.  I have found for 90% of the shooting I do the RX100 series it work great.  Sure, when it comes to Super Macro and Natural Light wide angle shots interchangeable lens with big sensors have the advantage.  These shots were adjusted in Photoshop Raw to the max of my basic editing skills but came out ok imho.
