    Is it possible to add manual option for white balance (next firmware)? Something like if you go deep under water and you have something white with you, you could set the white balance by showing something white to your camera. It's quite green if you compare with right white balance even if I had underwater mode on. First vs second picture.

    First of all, that's an absolutely amazing cave dive. I know they are highly technical, really dangerous, and all sorts of awesome!
    Anyway, about your question, I think they're already testing some stuff on the latest camera model, the SJ7 Star, as it has a lot more White Balance options.
    Although manual WB setting, I don't think it will happen anytime soon. I suggest you post it on the Wishlist section around here. Who knows? There might be a good number of people who also want it, the dev team may just need a little nudge. :wink:
