Great value but not for pros. I use this camera for shooting videos for my youtube channel. It is a simple little thing and lacks a lot of features that would be useful to me, but for the price i can not ask for more. I record audio separately keep the camera fixed with good lighting and it serves me well. If you expect too much of this camera it could easily disappoint you. But if you understand that you are buying a simple camera and not for professional use you should be happy.

Battery could be better however everything else really good, and easy to use.

I bought this to replace an old mini-dv camcorder that was about to expire. I did spend some time hunting around for a small, lightweight hd camcorder. After doing some research, its quite obvious that there is no ‘best’ device – its all about what features you need and how much you are willing to pay. I wanted a good lens, a recognised brand (i’ve always liked canon photo stuff), good selection of basic functionality as well as just auto modes, optical stability, good connectivity, expandable storage and wifi. I’ve only had the camera a few weeks and, so far, have only used it in auto-mode apart from odd bits of experiementation. Great portability but you may suffer trying to hold the thing steady and (if you have big hands) using the controls. Bought two sandisk class10 sd memory cards and they work a treat in combination with the internal memory. Plug the device in to a hd tv using the hdmi cable and the hd picture quality is top notch. This alone is enough to justify getting this camcorder.

Canon legria hf r36 camcorder. Camera is fine, quite easy to hold & use and with the sim card memory seems much handier than the old dvd disk canon camera we used to have. Bad point is the stupid 30 min (max) life battery that comes with the camera. Then the ridiculous price for a genuine canon spare battery, about a third the cost of the actual camera. So i took the gamble and bought a ‘non chipped’ battery & charger for £27. 94 via amazon (delivered in 2 days by normal post). Ok, so i don’t have the battery charge level meter & the slight nuisance of the red warning notice that has to be cancelled each time i switch on but so far so good. I can live with these disadvantages for the price savings. This new charger also has the advantage that i can charge the battery while driving from the car’s ‘cigarette lighter’ socket. Only time will tell if the battery life is any good.

We bought this for our movie making daughter. It’s small and very light and the zoom is amazing. Good quality of pic and sound.

Yes good camcorder, great for price, wish battery life was longer, have now purchased extra battery and charger.

Very good product spoiled by small details. . This is my first camcorder and i must admit i didn’t do as much research as i should have. Had i read a few reviews i may have been directed elsewhere,plus points first. It really is easy to use and gives great results straight from the box. Just charge it up, switch it on, open the lens cover, push the start button and away you go. I am absolutely delighted with the build quality of the camera and the quality of the videos it produces. It is small and light enough to carry in your pocket – justi haven’t explored all the features yet but one i like is the ability to grab a snapshot from a paused video. Image stabilisation works very well – even smooths out walking around. Internal 8gb of memory gives an hour of recording at moderate resolution. I have added an 8gb sandisk extreme ii and that will probably be as much as i will need.

Value for money – excellent quality for more than reasonable cost. . Handy, simple, user friendly. Videos and photos are excellent quality. Battery doesn’t last long but it was worth investing in a longer-life battery. I bought a canon compatible battery which was less than half the price of the canon version; the only disadvantage is that the display doesn’t register the life left in the battery, but otherwise – no issues. The monitor can be adjusted to any angle, which is great when getting into awkward spaces. Overall all a pleasing purchase.

Really great camera let down by poor battery life. We (by which i mean myself and my father)bought this camcorder to replace a now ancient sony dv camcorder which finally gave up the ghost. It was impressive how much choice the camcorder market now has but this seemed like the most logical option taking into account our budget and feature set we wanted. The video performance is really good.Having played around with this at john lewis – where we also bought it we were sure it’d do what we wanted it to. The wi-fi integration is also brilliant which made it even better. The only gripe is that the battery life was really poor. We got john lewis to replace the battery but still no improvement so we ended up buying a third party expanded battery which gives us about 2 hours – much much better. This camcorder is very good and the optical performance is really really nice. You definitely can see canon’s lens expertise.

I’m still testing it but at first seems a very easy to use product. Video quality seems to be good.

It is good camera for taking videos for kids school play etc. Works greatsoftware that comes with it probably works for computers on home network. I have not managed to configure network utility at all. It does not allow me to key in user credentialsapart from that it is ok.

Great video and sound, rubbish battery. I cant fault the quality of the media this device records – its fantastic. You get the option to record in ‘on-line’ friendly mp4 or in higher quality mode for full hd tv. The mp4 mode is still _very_ good, and i find that most of the time i leave it in this mode. By doing so i have the option to upload the media straight to facebook from the camera (following a f/w update). For me there are 3 bad points about the camcorder:1. The absolute rubbish battery they ship with the camera. You get 1 hour of recording only from this battery. Ok, it is small and light – but come on. This means you have to buy a bigger battery (maybe most people will do that anyway) – and they are very expensive and currently not that easy to buy. So add another £80 on to your budget. I find it hard to use the zoom function when holding the camera. Maybe its just me, but i cant hold it steady and operate the zoom with one hand.
