Hero 5 Supersuit Diving to 5m

Hi,

 

Just looking for some guidance. I am going on a 'try dive' when I go on holiday to Ibiza in June and it will be to 5m and a small chance it would be to 6m. We will be diving at approximately 4-5pm. I won't be going diving again so do not want to buy a red dive filter unless it  really means the difference between getting any usable footage or not, but there's no advice anywhere about diving less than 5m so do I take that to believe that no filter is necessary for shallow water? If I do dive to 6m is that 1m going to make all that much difference in the footage? Any advice would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Thanks for those I have had a look and from what I can gather a red filter would be useful from like 10m down then?

I'm not a diver myself, but from the description red should be best (although I would try without lens too).
