The Canon Vixia HF20 and Vixia HF200 aren't even available yet, but they'll be ready for a summer vacation at the beach when they ship--that is, if you accessorize them with the new WP-V1 underwater housing. The plastic casing allows you to shoot your HD video as deep as 130 feet. At $599, the case is a bit pricey, though. It's slated to ship in May.
