The dramatic clarity and brilliance of HD video is particularly suited for conveying the beauty to be found underwater. The VIXIA HF21 can be your partner under the waves as well with the optional Canon WP-V1 Waterproof Case. Designed specifically for the VIXIA HF21, the case is waterproof to 130ft (40m). It's conceived to make the most of the VIXIA HF21's capabilities, with direct control buttons for record start/stop, telephoto and wide zoom, photo capture and preview. Compact and light, it's priced to make HD underwater exploration a compelling option.
Adding to the usefulness of the WP-V1 Waterproof Case is the Surface Mode setting of the VIXIA HF21. To compensate for the color shift which occurs when shooting underwater, the VIXIA HF21 adjusts the white balance setting when in Underwater Mode. When you return to the surface of the water, a switch to Surface Mode brings the white balance back to that normally used when shooting in sunlight - without the need to remove the VIXIA HF21 from the WP-V1 Waterproof Case. You can chase your marine subject from the depths to the light, all the while capturing the most natural color possible.
