Color Checker as refrence

Hi all,


I always wanted to share my finding for using a color checker for underwater video. I will detail this in a later edit hence I have to go now :)

Here is a clip:



Silkypix has a specific feature for underwater photography

I came across this:
Underwater Photo Controller Installed as a Function for Correcting Dedicated to Underwater Photography

I am not into still photography these days (contemplating) but I thought this function is useful and very thoughtful indeed. They offer 30 days free trail.

To light, or not to light, that is the question

As the topic clearly states, I'd like to start a healthy debate on lighting when shooting video underwater. I really don't use lights for many reasons such as we shoot in water with many particles/planktons, I don't shoot at night, I don't like to disturb the creatures, etc...
I would like to leave the reasoning for the forum members.
I will try to start a poll and if I couldn't, I'd like the administrator to help in setting up the poll. The questions about when is lighting more effective.
1) do you use lights all the times?
2) do use lights for macro only?
3) or you don't use lights at all?

In the reply to the topic, members can elaborate on the reasons for or against lighting.
