hi I use a polaroid underwater case with a nex3 which is mostly the same as yours; I still struggle with the lightning because at 20m all is blue and I still have to learn a lot ,

With ambient lighting, you have to shoot in RAW, then import the files into your favorite RAW processor (Lightroom, etc; Capture One has a free version for Sony cameras) and use spot white balance tool off a neutral grey spot (sand, bare rock, another diver's tank, etc) to fix the colors. If you don't have any of that in your shot, hunt for another shot made in similar conditions where you do have a neutral patch and copy/paste the white balance settings from there. It won't be perfect, but it won't be solid blue either.
