I think they might compress the pictures I uploaded here but I can tell you the quality and colors of originals are very good. I did not use any supplemental strobe (just the built-in flash of the Nikon 1 J3). The best pictures are taken when you are close to the subject (within 1m or 3 feet). The best way is to manually calibrate the white balance as long as you go deeper which is easy to do (bring a white slate if there is no white sands around, otherwise anything white at same depth and light environment of the picture subject will do the same). Recalibrate white every 2-3 meters (and maybe more often as you go deeper. White balance "Underwater mode" of Nikon 1 J3 is pretty useless). Take pictures in RAW (NEF) in case you did not calibrate white balance correctly so you can adjust the picture with the software afterward (you cannot do that with photos taken in JPEG). I found that a red filter is not really needed when you correctly adjust white balance. Very good product for the price. I found used kit in mint condition (Nikon 1 J3 and WP-N2 in original boxes) for under $500! Quite satisfied customer!
