Examples of with Dive+ and without

These settings depend on lighting, clear or murky water and general conditions. This is only to give ideas. I put this picture into dive+ filter. Gives it some pop.


ISO always for more light to enter but also more noise. The picture may not be as sharp.


Experiment with settings and find what you like.

I hope this helps some newbies out there.


Since I wrote this I have stopped using dive+ and I now use Lightroom for edits.
