I color Scotch 3M Magic Tape with a permanent black marker and use that. It doesn't leave a residue and doesn't move around.

I stumbled across this supplier who I bet would add one of these custom gears to their range (or just make one-offs) if asked.

Thanks. Port chart (WWL-1 options currently shown in red). Sounds like a reasonable way to get an all-round system. One issue is how to store the WWL-1 when it's off.

For what it's worth, my old Sony Z1P HDV would white balance down to 23m (pointing it at the palm of my hand). Sometimes I would need to point it at the sun to get a fix if I was close to the depth limit. I was happier with the Z1P underwater manual white balance results than I have been so far with the GH4, but I haven't shot a lot of available-light stuff yet. It's difficult to say exactly what bothers me about the GH4 u/w white balance. The footage might just be lacking saturation, especially in the blue water. It's not that bad though.


p.s. I could manually white balance my VX2000 at 50m (in available light with a blue-water filter)!
