Whether you need a replacement battery or charger or you are looking for a battery with a larger capacity, Canon has a full range of accessories for the power you need to capture your memories.
The intelligent lithium ion battery tells you exactly how much battery charge you have left.
The CG 110 is an accessory for charging your batteries without your camcorder. You can place the battery in the cradle and the LED indicator will let you know when the battery is fully charged.
The Canon Wide-converter WD-H34 II is an accessory lens that attaches to LEGRIA camcorders of a filter diameter of 34 mm. It sets the focal length of the digital video camcorder to approximately 0.7 times, thereby widening the angle of view. It's perfect for indoor shooting and getting more people in your shot.
The Canon Tele-converter TL-H34 II is a converter lens that sets the focal length to approximately 1.5 times of your camcorder's lens, allowing you to capture more detail in far away subjects.
