Gates Housings announced the arrival of the HF G20 Housing for Canon's latest consumer camcorder.  The housing will support the Canon Vixia HF G20, HF G10, XA10, and Legria HF G25. 

The major draw of the housing is the large window that allows use of the built-in LCD monitor at wide viewing angles.  The housing features Gates' non-vignetting ports and an internal flip filter for natural light shooting color correction.  An added benefit is the ability to use all available battery sizes meaning less battery changes throughout the day of diving.
