Is GoPro Hero 11 Waterproof?


First things first, let’s discuss the waterproof capabilities of the GoPro Hero 11. Right out of the box, the GoPro Hero 11 is waterproof and can handle depths of up to 10 meters (33 feet).

This makes it ideal for activities such as swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and paddleboarding, not to mention it’s equipped to handle rain and waterfalls.

This means you can also be confident if you’re filming in heavy rain, around splashing dirt, or if your camera accidentally takes a dip in shallow water.

However, if you plan to go Sporttauchen, you’ll definitely need a sturdy underwater housing.

Investing in a reliable underwater housing is wise, considering your GoPro is a significant investment. You wouldn’t want to risk damaging it with an inferior case.

Here are 2 best underwater housings that I recommend:

The housing includes a skeleton backdoor that improves audio capture and provides access to the additional touchscreen at the back of the camera. This official GoPro accessory is not only compatible with the Hero 11 but also ensures high-quality footage capture without any worries.

Is The GoPro Waterproof in Salt Water?


The GoPro Hero 11, just like all other GoPros, is designed for use in both fresh and salt water.

However, due to the corrosive nature of salt water, it’s essential to carefully maintain your equipment after exposure. After using your GoPro in salt water, make sure to rinse the camera and any accessories with fresh water. This step helps remove salt deposits that could potentially harm the camera’s housing and internal parts over time.

Once rinsed, dry your GoPro gently with a soft, lint-free cloth to prevent water spots and ensure that no moisture is left on the camera.

It’s also wise to remove and separately dry any detachable parts like the Akku und SD-Karte an prevent any trapped moisture from causing corrosion or mold.

Tips For Underwater Filming


Below are some essential steps you should take to ensure your dive is as productive and hassle-free as possible.

Keep the battery fully charged

Before diving, ensure your GoPro’s battery is voll aufgeladen. This is crucial because underwater shooting can often take longer than expected, and colder temperatures at depth can reduce battery life.

Download the latest GoPro firmware

Keeping your GoPro updated with the latest firmware ensures you have the latest features and optimizations. It can improve overall performance and fix bugs that might affect video quality and camera functionality.

To update, use the GoPro app on your smartphone or download the update from the GoPro website to your computer and transfer it to your camera via USB.

Use a red filter

Water absorbs colors such as red and orange; a red filter compensates for this loss and helps bring out vibrant colors in your underwater footage.

gopro red filters

This is especially useful in blue or green water, where the depth can significantly alter how true colors appear on camera.

I recommend using these filters:

  • Light Red Filter: Ideal for color correction in clear freshwater at shallow depths from 2-15 feet.
  • Rotes Filter: Best for adjusting colors in blue or tropical waters at depths of 15-85 feet.
  • Magenta-Filter: Perfect for correcting colors in greenish waters, like those found in lakes and reservoirs, from depths of 8-75 feet.

Use LED light for deep waters

As you dive deeper, sunlight diminishes, and colors fade. Using an LED-Licht illuminates the dark waters and help your camera capture the vivid details and colors of underwater life.

Lights not only enhance the quality of the footage but also enable you to explore and record in crevices and under rocks where light doesn’t naturally reach.

I recommend the Suptig Waterproof LED Light.
