GWMN10.5 - GreenWater Magic for the Nikon 10.5mm fisheye
The GWMN10.5 is a GreenWater Magic filter designed to fit into the filter holding slot on the rear on the Nikon 10.5mm Fisheye lens. This filter will also fit on the rear on Nikon's 14mm lens. The filter measures approximately 27x27mm. The MN10.5 has the corners of the leading edge clipped so it slides easily into the back of the lens. The Magic Filter on the 10.5mm is probably the best Nikon lens for greenwater filter photography and is ideal for ship wreck photography. Note that green waters are usually darker than blue tropical waters and filter photography in these conditions often involves long exposures.

As this filter is made from the GreenWater Magic formula the photographer must set the white balance manually (using PRE - preset WB) every time they change depth by a few metres during the dive. This is easy to do and takes just a few seconds on Nikon's newer DSLRs like the D70, D80, D200 and D2X. This filter is designed specifically to work with the white balance of a modern digital camera in green waters.
A single GWMN10.5 costs £22 and a pack of three filters costs £35.
Magic filters are designed for available light underwater photography. The GreenWater Magic works from 4m down to at least 22m (70ft). This filter does tend to render green waters more blueish. All our filters are optical quality polyester gels, manufactured for us, to our recipes, by one of the world's leading filter companies. All Magic filters are supplied with detailed instructions.
