Hey All,

I leave in 2 days for Lembeh and R4. Super pumped but dialing in gear before I head out and could use somehelp.

I have a Hero 5 Black. Set up is Backscatter trey and two Sola 2500's, with all Backscatter filters and macros lens.

I run the camera on 1080, 60fps, Wide, Protune on with, 1600 ISO, High Sharpness, Auto color/light.

I usually burn the lights at their lowest setting for battery purposes and then push them up to the middle setting if I feel I need more light for the shot.

I make an effort to shot longer than I need, and keep my shots super steady. I want to take my video to the next level though.

3 Things:

1) What can I do here to fix the color shifting issues I have noticed with the GoPro as water color/depth changes so I don't get weird adjustment fixes in the middle of my shots? Is this a white balance thing? Protune thing?

2) Is there anything you would change in order to capture better Macro style shots?

3) Any other feedback you have that has been useful for you if you have this/similar set up?
