Re: tips on shooting underwater with NEX

I don't shoot a lot of underwater but I do shoot IR above water and what most people don't realize is that IR and red becomes absorbed very very fast and at a point there isn't any red wave lengths to boost. It would be fun to take a color checker underwater and see where the color spectrum becomes void of red.  No matter how much color correction you do if there is no red in the spectrum you can't boost it.  Best example I can think of is when shooting at night under sodium vapor lights the orange yellow lights.  No matter what you do because it only emits specific wavelengths of light within the visible spectrum colors are missing and certain colors can't be restored and can't be corrected.
