Hero 6 Black underwater weird over saturation

Went diving in Indonesia only to have my footage come out over saturated and tried to save them but no luck. Im still unsure as to why it came out like this! any help would be great. I have used the same settings diving for the longest time and only had this issue on this dive. I use a red filter from backscatter. Here are my settings

 

2.7k @ 60fps Linear

Protunes on

Shutter: auto

WB: Autio

EV Comp: .5

ISO min: 100

ISO max: 800

Sharp: High

Color: Flat

 

If any other information is needed to figure out what happened let me know. Thank you guys!

Re: Hero 6 Black underwater weird over saturation

I would offer that you may have been diving in very blue water and didn't use a red dive filter.  You also had protune turned on and had the image settings adjusted incorrectly therefore allowing too much blue light into your image.
