Able to record up to 16.4 feet underwater, the waterproof VIXIA HF W11 camcorder lets you capture fun-filled moments at water parks, beaches and more without having to worry about mist or waves ruining your video.

So whether it's withstanding splashes by the pool or wintry snow days, the VIXIA HF W11 is ready for the situation at hand.

With the VIXIA HF W11 camcorder's shockproof structure, there's virtually no need to worry about accidents. Even if you happen to drop it, the camcorder can endure falls from heights of up to 4.9 feet (with the LCD monitor closed). This means that even in the heat of the moment, you can pick up where you left off and keep recording.

The VIXIA HF W11 camcorder is built to last in a wide variety of environments. Not only is it dustproof, but it's also freezeproof, withstanding temperatures as low as 14°F.

Recording at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution means recording with beautiful detail and natural color that can perfectly illustrate the moment.

Image Stabilization

Intelligent IS settings:
  • OFF: Deactivates image stabilizer.
  • ON: Reduces camera shake under normal shooting conditions.
  • ON (AIS): Reduces camera shake more effectively when shooting bright scenes on the wide-angle end. Only on the wide-angle end (approx. 5x).
  • Enhanced AIS: The area of correction in the enhanced AIS-mode is greater than that in the AIS mode. Camera shake can be reduced more effectively even when recording is performed by zooming from wide-angle to telephoto.
It is recommended to set the image stabilizer to OFF when shooting a subject of little movement with the unit on a tripod. Complete stabilization may not be possible if camera shake is excessive. This setting is effective for video recording only. Using the image stabilizer will narrow the angle of view. Dynamic zoom is not available in the enhanced AIS mode.
