In Topic: Is anyone using Red filters on DSLR with lights (Macro)

Sorry, I'm still concerned about the understanding.

If you custom white balance, then use a light to insert light on the macro subject, the white balance is wrong, and will produce a red image.

With light being used, you are pretty close in color without any custom white balance for the depth.

You don't custom white balance when using light, you should set the camera kelvin to the the light's kelvin. My comment about custom white balance is in respond to your comment about subject distance to surface, it's with ambient light.

Yes I left out a key information: Custom White Balance. When you custom white balance in front of your subject, there is not enough water column between you and the subject to interfere with the setting, so no need filter.

In Topic: Taking the housing as carry-on

There are a couple things to consider:

Base on the way you carry your housing with camera already installed inside it, do not pressurize the housing. For those who do not have a vacuum valve, never ever open the housing, and close it in MID AIR, otherwise you won't be able to open it once landed.


The other thing I read about is because the camera is already in the housing, there is a risk that the knob/dial inside the housing may get push loose during transport. if you run and the set up is bouncing around, this may happen and there could be a risk of cause some leak to happen.Think of it as have a full stomach of food in your stomach and try to ride roller coaster, your intestine will complain :D

When shooting macro, you're close enough to your subject that there is not enough water column in between you and the subject to filter out the red light from the sun. The only time you need filter when working with Macro and light is when you use UV light for Fluorescence effect. You would use Yellow filter for that.

I never imply that a new/better gear would make a better artist, I just point out that a lot videographers do not tell people what/how they use their equipment.
