What camera to use with LEDs

What are you guys using to get a decent color representation of corals under LEDs?

Also is there a good free image hosting site anyone knows of since photobucket got greedy?

You're going to see the same problem with all cameras. The problem is we dial up the blue light higher than what is naturally seen. Some cameras have different settings for fluorescent light vs natural sunlight so that might be worth checking out on your camera. Try dialing down the blues on your LED's for the pics and that will help dramatically. Also, photoshop works wonders at correcting some of the blue tint but you have to play around with it.
Gel filter

I know it is an old post. However, I prefer to use a mid line DSLR. Adjust White Balance based on your lighting and then use the software to post process. It is really the only way with out using an orange gel filter to filter out all of the blue pop.
I used my pixel XL 3 and used the night sight setting and got this.
