Magic Filters make three types of filters for digital compact cameras. This filter- the Auto-Magic (AM)- is designed for use in blue to blue-green waters. Unlike our other filters this filter is designed to work with the auto white balancing (default) setting on your digital compact camera to make great colour underwater photography point and shoot simple.
The Auto-Magic filter works best at shallow depths where you will have more time for photography. It is also excellent for turning your digital compact camera into a video camera! If you are a keen photographer who wants more control over your camera and images then perhaps the C M filter will be better for you. This version is made from the original Magic filter and it requires the photographer to set the white balance manually (using preset, custom or manual white balance) every time they change depth by a few metres during the dive.
If you dive in green water, you may also like to try the GreenWater Magic. The G W C M also requires the photographer to set the White Balance manually. A single AM1 costs £19.40 and a pack of three filters (AM3) costs £30.64. Magic filters are designed for available light underwater photography. The Auto-Magic works best from the 3m down to 12m (40ft).
All the filters are optical quality polyester gels- manufactured for the purpose- by one of the world's leading filter companies. All Magic filters are supplied with detailed instructions.
