    Hi, I configured my Micro 2.0 32 gbytes for underwater photo, with WB fixed, so in the surface, pics are way too red.
    Is there a way to restore the original colours ?
    I've learned to use the "mandrake" method in Photoshop to restore red, but I don't know how to use it in the opposite direction.

    The "opposite direction" of red is green. You can either reduce red, or boost green.

    Problem is, you effectively put a red filter on the camera, by telling the software to not capture green light. You may or may not have sufficient color left in the image to compensate for that. Monkey around in photoshop and see what you can do, look online for "color correction" plug-ins and procedures.
