This item includes one green water filter for compact cameras. This item is also available as a 3-pack. This filter is approximately 50mm x 50mm square gel and may be cut to size. The filter must be used in the camera housing. This type of filter yields the best performance but can not be used on the outside of the housing port.
GreenWater Magic filter is designed for DSLR users shooting available light stills or video, although can be used succesfully on compacts and video cameras. This filter requires the camera’s white balance to be set manually. This filter produces remarkable images, particularly of still life subjects such as wrecks. It is particularly suited to video use.
The principle is similar to a traditional red filter. However, the GreenWater Magic filter is not just a single colour, but a precise recipe derived from extensive real world underwater photography tests with digital cameras. Our recipe was derived by us for our own photography. It is not availble off the shelf and other filters sold for underwater photography do not use it. The GreenWater Magic filter looks orangey-red.

Filter photography in dark green waters is more of challenge than using the original Magic in brightly lit blue waters. The GreenWater Magic filter is our most technical filter and may take you a couple of dives to discover the best settings for your conditions and camera. Magic Filters has tried to include as much helpful and honest information in these pages as possible so that you understand the filter before you buy it and to enable you to get the most out of it once you have.
