Video camera not included.

Molded of clear polycarbonate to provide seamless construction and corrosion proof performance. This "Clearly Superior" design provides full view of the camcorder, control functions, and assurance the system is safe up to depths of 200 feet (60 meters). The camera's large viewing screen can be viewed using the External Mirror featured on the side of the housing. Included Image Reversing Circuitry "flips" the image in the camera's LCD so that its reflection in the mirror appears correct left-to-right. Camera microphone is disabled when Reversing Circuitry is turned on. The External Mirror is hinged to fold against the housing side for travel. Controls for the LCD screen touch pad provide full access to setting white balance and white balance shift. The base removes instantly with a unique toggle clamp for traveling or attaching of the optional Pro Video Lite 3 battery pack.
