Hi David,

I used the bigblue 5000 lumens model which is replaced by the 6000 lumens model: http://www.bigbluedi...asp?Product=339. I really felt the 5000 lumens was more than enough for me and I was shooting at mid level al the time.

I used two of them my my Sony FS7 housing with the yellow filter on ( i thought it made the lighte warmer). My white balance was prefixed at 5500k hence I was shooting Slog3 Cine mode. I believe a got decent colors rendering from them and definitely made my color correction workflow with davinci resolve much smother and more straight forward. I hope this helps.

Here is a link of th video I've shot with the lights: https://youtu.be/oLvR2G0zVoI

I am glad you were able to fix the issue. Can you elaborate on what gamma did you use and how did you fix it?

What video codec you are using?
My friend had a similar issue with his Sony FS100/FS700, I think. It is discussed in detail on this forum. This haze (halo rings) only appears when shooting a subject in a blue water column like your manta shot.
I think it is to do with low bit rate of the codec and thus the compression of data causes such bad rendering of the blue water background. XAVC-S is better suited for video on the a6000 (50 Mbps).

If you are already using XAVC-S, then try different color gamma.
