Got a Canon G7X and a Meiko underwater housing.
In spite of what they say, the build-in flash is not usable. Not even with the diffuser.
Question. Do I need a external flash or is a 120 degrees 1100 lumen light enough to light all the area.
Note. I will not use the light for longer distances, more for the macro area.

message For macro you can get away with a fairly small area (some people use a snoot to make a spotlight effect on their subject), so a 120 degree video light should be fine. An external flash will give you more options though, like being able to alter the amount of light given out.
Hope that helps!
