Underwater video setting / Video light

Underwater Videography - www.scubaboard.com
I plan on using my Canon G7X Mk II with the underwater setting for video, but I have a small 1000lm focus/video light for close up / macro etc.

I've tested the set up in my living room and, as expected, there's a red tinge to the video. Without the light the U/W setting should work ok, adding lost red, but I'm assuming adding light for close up work would negate that requirement so you'd have the red tinge.

How do others deal with this? I don't really want to mess with the camera settings every time I get into a range where the video light is effective (obviously it can be done but a nuisance underwater, esp as I'll be adjusting settings for stills too). Is the red tinge going to be very noticeable in the U/W video? or can you effectively adjust the hue to more natural colours using white balance settings within video editing software?

Thanks in advance!

Rob
