    Hi Max V14
  1. Hi there. This question is for those using custom white balance for video on Canon g7x mark iii (firmware 1.2 and same on new one 1.3). I am trying to do custom white balance in video mode. The flow for that requires taking a picture and use it for white balance reference by going in the menu, loading the picture in the respective setting. Since I am using it for underwater video, I'd like to do it the most efficient way, therefore with minimum camera manipulation. It appears to me that I need to switch from video to a photo shooting mode first in order to take the white balance reference picture ( I didn 't find a way to take stills in video mode), then back to video mode to do the custom white balance by going in the menu and load it to the specific setting. Since this is to be done quite often, it is a bit annoying. Any advice for a better custom white balance flow ? Did you find a way to take picture in video mode with this camera, so at least I do not have to switch modes? Thank you!
  2. Hi there. I have some basic questions, I 'd love some feedback from those that used a Threaded Filter for underwater photography. I will have my answers in two weeks , but I prefer not to ruin a dive or two . I just bought a Threaded Red Filter and searching a bit on the usage I found some details that I cannot put together. In some place was written that with Threaded Filter you have to decide if you gonna use it or not before getting underwater since you cannot take it out and put it back while diving. So tighten it before jumping in the water. On another e shop I found a Threaded Red Filter for sale that had specified that can be attached /detached underwater. First question is: are there different Threaded Filters, some that will allow some that will not allow you to attached /detached them underwater? Second: If I tighten the Threaded Filter really well while still dry, as the first statement suggest, is there any chance it will crack because the pressure and the air layer between the filter and port? Not sure if tighten it will make the connection air / water tight. For reference: I use a Sony RX100 M1 with Meikon case. It has a 67 mm diameter for filter. Thanx! Sorin
