Canon Vixia HF W11 In-Depth Review—Waterproof Camcorder—The GoPro Killer?

Canon Vixia HF W11 In-Depth Review

 

There is a new waterproof camcorder on the market. It’s the Canon Vixia HF W11. It claims to be 16ft/5m depth capable, waterproof, able to handle drops from up to 4.9 feet, can handle saltwater, and it has a built-in LED illuminator. Aaron has been looking for an adventure camcorder that goes way beyond the GoPro 5/6/7. The Canon W11 may be the GoPro killer.
