    Canon A720IS - Red Filter

    Ok, got back from last trip, started working on shots in Adobe Photoshop. Used the wonderful UW action that adds red back in for more realistic colored shots.

    But, the video...........how can I add red into it? I used Adobe Premiere Elements...is there a "fix" there? Or do I have to figure out a way to get a red filter on that itty bitty camera in the itty bitty Canon housing???

    There's a red filter that's basically a red film. Suppose you could cut a piece and attach it to the housing port end (not to camera lens cause it retracts into the camera when shut off).

    they make a screw on filter adapter for that camera, no idea if it would fit in your case, however.

    For video, I find it easiest to do a manual white balance before taking the video. The minor inconvenience of having to do this far outweighs all of the headaches you'll encounter trying to color balance in post-processing.
    Consult the instruction manual to learn how use this very useful video setting. You only need to re-do the manual white balance when the ambient lighting condition (depth) changes.
    I would advise against using a red filter affixed to the inside of the lens port. This may give acceptable color representation for a given depth range (20 - 60 fsw) and improve color somewhat deeper than that, but it will likely make your videos taken in shallow water (shallower than 20 fsw) "too red."
    Good luck with your video adventures.
