Questions and Answers for Bonica HDDV 1080P Digital High Definition Video Camera and Underwater Housing:
does it have a water correting lens? so everything is not all blue.

The blue color you see in your underwater images is caused by not being close enough to your subject. Water, no matter how clear, will always appear blue in an image whether film or digital. The do offer a red filter that will help account for red being the first color absorbed by the lack of light underwater. It will help with the effect you are looking for, but still not eliminate it. Mainly it will offer better coloration at depths starting about 50' or so.
Whats the field of view with and without the wide angle lens? Duration of battery with
and without video light? Field of view on video light and is it variable intensity?

I know nothing about underwater cameras.
Looking at the huge price differance I guess it would be foolish to expect much from a $500 camera?
