    How about white or grey duct tape on top of your fin? If you are shooting in raw and setting WB in post, all you need is a big enough piece to get the eye dropper on.

    You can do a white balance on you buddy”s tank if galvanized.

    Have you tried using someone's tank? I use someone's tank so I don't have to carry a card

    The idea with the tank is very good, but my upcoming trip is to the Maldives and everybody dives with yellow-green nitrox tanks there.

    I am wondering if anyone has compared custom white balance using the palm vs. a grey card. Are the differences big?

    This might be a false dichotomy. There are also divers who are photographers.

    You are stretching. When Jill Heinerth is doing some cave photography, for example, are you suggesting she is not diving 100% of the time?

    I have no idea who that is but is the focus focus or is it diving?

    Look her up.
    If you are in a cave, your focus better be diving.
