Why the Paralenz DCC Beats the Use of Colour Filters

When the Paralenz® Dive Camera was released last year it immediately drew the attention of divers worldwide for its groundbreaking features, designed with a full focus on scuba- and freediving.

These features solve many of the problems all other action cameras have when used for diving: you no longer need an additional housing, and the camera is rated to 200 meters. The new 'Auto Record' facility makes sure that you’ll never forget to start recording your dive. And your footage can be transferred to your smartphone or tablet directly after the dive thanks to the Paralenz's in-built wi-fi system. But the most prominent advantage for many divers is that the Paralenz Dive Camera needs no colour filters. The solution is called 'Depth Color Correction,' - or  DCC, for short.

Why is the Paralenz DCC better than traditional filters

There are many reasons why the depth-controlled colour correction from Paralenz is such a game-changer, we've listed a few below:

No fiddling with flimsy filters

There is an endless variety of colour filters available - different colours for different depths and water types, some are built to flip and some hang on strings from the camera. They all need to be changed whenever you change depth, they are cumbersome, fragile, they can get lost or break. The Paralenz Dive Camera doesn't need filters! Nothing to get lost, to forget or to change between dives.

Amazing colours straight off the camera

Because the DCC continuously colour grades the footage according to your depth, it gives you the best colours possible for every single shot and lets you focus on the dive. You no longer have the red hue at the surface or the dark/blue image at depth, which is created by the external red filters which are needed for all other action cameras. DCC means you never worry about underwater colour correction again!

More light means more colour

Whenever you put a filter in front of a camera lens, it acts like sunglasses absorbing and therefore reducing the amount of light that should pass through to the lens. The result is blurry and dark footage. The Paralenz Dive Camera doesn't need filters – this means that all that lovely light goes straight through to the lens and lets the DCC work its magic.

Bored of colour grading footage?

When using external colour filters you will still need to adjust the colours in post-production software in order to get colours closer to reality. With the Paralenz you don’t, meaning that it is much easier and faster to share your colourful footage straight after the dive, using the Paralenz Dive App on your phone or tablet.

Much more than just better colours

DCC is much more than just beautiful colours - you get sharper and brighter images straight from the camera, without the hassle of filters and need for colour grading. Most important of all, it lets you focus on your dive and not on your camera!
