Hi Dbuky,

 

The AX100 is a great camera, one I was seriously looking at myself. However as you can see it doesn't have the best White Balance underwater, which is a shame.

 

Simply..

   Using any lights underwater? = NO Filter and set the WB to the Kelvin of the lights (if you can, otherwise use 'shade' is my preference)

   Using only the ambient light? = Use Filters and CWB/MWB or just MWB on its own, if camera is good (which the AX100 isn't)

 

I wouldn't use AWB, incase the ambient light interferes and causes a WB shift, I would lock it to one of the presents (Custom like shade, indoors etc) which is the most pleasing to the eye.

 

You can get very technical, by using lights with a filter on the camera, but they you need the reserve filter on the lights ('Cyan Filters').

 

Pete's guide is excellent, with a lot of work gone into it, to get pleasing colours from the AX100, but is aimed at only ambient lit shots.

Hi Espen,

I've tried a couple of ways, my initial idea was to put it behind the camera. I did this using the XIT404 tray. It worked and balanced out the camera.

However I ended up always wanting to look at the screen on the camera as I'm not sending the OSD via HDMI and so wanted to check exposure etc. The cameras screen is a bit small for normal control and you have to hold the camera up in front of you.

So I've gone with it on top, but slightly in front. But I've made the camera precisely neutral so it's balanced and doesnt sink or float. As shown below:

Hope that helps
