Waterproof up to 16.4 feet

Able to record up to 16.4 feet underwater, the waterproof VIXIA HF W10 camcorder lets you capture fun-filled moments at water parks, beaches and more without having to worry about mist or waves ruining your video. Plus, the waterproof design also means the VIXIA HF W10 keeps recording so you can capture beautiful visuals like sudden rain showers or flurries of snow. So whether it’s withstanding splashes by the pool or wintry snow days, the VIXIA HF W10 is ready for the situation at hand.

Shockproof up to 4.9 feet

With the VIXIA HF W10 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.

Dustproof and Freezeproof down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit

The VIXIA HF W10 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. Whether you’re out on a windy day at the beach or braving the cold weather for a winter trip, the VIXIA HF W10 can keep up and keep running.

Battery Life of Approximately 4.5 Hours*

The VIXIA HF W10 camcorder is powered by a high-capacity internal battery that provides up to 4 hours and 20 minutes of continuous recording. The rechargeable USB battery not only lets you shoot for long periods of time, but it also accurately displays the remaining battery time so you're always in the know.

* 4 hours and 20 minutes is the approximate time of continuous recording of the default setting mode if the internal battery has been fully charged, the monitor backlight is set to standard mode, and without the use of zoom function.

Full HD 1920x1080 (AVCHD Format) Recording

Recording at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution means recording with beautiful detail and natural color that can perfectly illustrate the moment. Because the VIXIA HF W10 camcorder records in AVCHD format, which is designed for high quality and clarity, it’s easy to produce impressive videos to share with your friends and family.

8GB Built-in Flash Memory and SD Memory Card Slotg

The camcorder's internal 8GB built-in flash memory holds many crisp, high-definition videos. You can also record to a removable SD memory card for easy sharing with friends and family.

40x Optical and 60x Dynamic Zoom

You won't miss any of the action when recording with the VIXIA HF W10 camcorder and its impressive 40x Optical and 60x Dynamic Zoom. Long-range shooting allows you to create videos with dynamic variety so you can capture amazing views near and far, like candid sports videos, your friend waterskiing in the distance, faraway animals in the wild and more.

1/5.8-inch 2.5 Megapixel Back-illuminated CMOS Sensor

The VIXIA HF W10 camcorder is equipped with a 2.5 Megapixel back-illuminated CMOS Image Sensor to beautifully deliver lifelike Full HD video with natural color, even in low light. On-chip noise reduction brings bright clarity to every frame. Video is rich, clear and amazingly detailed anywhere you view it, even when played back on a large HDTV.

Advanced Image Stabilization

Advanced Image Stabilization helps correct camera shake quickly, so even handheld video taken at long focal lengths can be sharp and steady. It provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion.

Simultaneous Full HD Video and 2 Megapixel Still Shooting

With the VIXIA HF W10, you won’t have to miss a single moment of the action to capture beautiful still images. This camcorder lets you do both, capturing 2 Megapixel images simultaneously as you record and virtually eliminates the need to carry around a separate camera for still images alone. Simply record your video, select the frame you want and relive your favorite moments all over again.

3.0-inch Touch Panel LCD

The VIXIA HF W10 camcorder features a 3.0-inch capacitive touch panel LCD screen that's bright and clearly visible even outdoors in the sun, with rich, natural color reproduction. Its streamlined user interface makes choosing focal points, tracking moving subjects and shooting and watching your videos easy and fun. Clear explanations pop up when selecting shooting modes and recording formats, so even new videographers can feel confident as they create impressive videos.

Compatible with Portable Battery** and USB Charging

The VIXIA HF W10 camcorder features a number of convenient ways to stay charged. For long trips out, it can use portable batteries, allowing the option to bring extra batteries just in case they’re needed. The VIXIA HF W10 can also be charged via USB.

** When used with a portable battery of over 1.0A, 5V and over 5200mAh. Compatibility is not guaranteed for all portable batteries.

Face Tracking

For times when it’s difficult to clearly record subjects that are moving around, the VIXIA HF W10 camcorder comes with a Face Tracking feature that helps ensure sharp focus and natural, accurate exposure of your subjects. Whether you’re recording sports or your kids running around in the park, you can rely on the VIXIA HF W10 to help keep your videos clear and in focus.

Time Lapse Recording

The VIXIA HF W10 camcorder comes with time-lapse recording, which provides a fun way to express your creativity.
