My old Ikelite Video Housing has a colour correcting filter which slides
over the dome housing. Its called a UR Pro filter. Is there an equivalent
number of filter or combination of filters that will emulate the
characteristics of this filter. I am trying to correct some pictures taken
underwater that have a blue caste.

{BTW, the camera is a JVC analogue and is pretty well obsolete. I know, I
should have bought a digital camera. I did not know better.}

Yes, I found a source, actually, the manufacturer. And yes, there is a
filter which will work with my camera. Whether or not it will work with the
camera AND housing remains to be seen.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, I am getting better at making the proper
correction with software filters. If I knew the exact characteristics of the
filter, I could make a custom filter. But I suppose that information is
proprietary.

This is just too much fun.
