Underwater is a much different story, with the camera needing the addition of a red filter to help correct your images from being all blue or all green. Every diver has noticed that the underwater environment is one of the monochromatic hues rather than distinct colors. Depending on your location, objects will take on a blue or green cast at the expense of all things yellow, orange, red, etc. This is because water acts as a filter of red light. The deeper you dive the more the red spectrum is filtered from the ambient light. You can, however, emphasize the existing red light by filtering out the blue spectrum with a red filter. ACTUAL GOPRO IMAGES WITHOUT FILTER & WITH FLIP10+ FILTERWatch the video below to see the examples of the GoPro Camera WITHOUT our color correction filter and WITH our FLIP Filters Color Correction System while diving at various depths:×SOLUTION: FLIP10+ COLOR CORRECTION SOLUTIONS As hardcore GoPro users, we discovered that capturing the best underwater color requires the use of multiple filters. After hundreds of hours of testing, we've perfected a multi-filter system and integrated it into our world-renowned FLIP design. The FLIP10+ Filter System gives you multiple filters at the flip of one finger. Optimal color has never been so easy!
