It is fantastic as a camera for a solid all round film making perspective.
Excellent amazon service, good product at fair price.

More than reasonable performance with a good price good value. In overall, this is a good product with a more than reasonable performance at a good price. I like its scene mode, which can take very beautiful video with accurate white balance and exposure level to reflect the real feeling and looking of a sunset time – no like my some other cameras that automatically adjusts up the exposure level and give a weird white balance. The low-light shot is much better than my old canon tx-1, which is a product of 2007 at the price level of $650 that time and takes 720p video. It also has a good colour for other scenes of videos. I found the top quality avchd looks better than then top quality mp$, no matter on my computer lcd or on my 46-inch hdtv (through hdmi). Oh, one thing very important – it down-compatible with pal standard. What i don’t like is its lens cover – you need to open/close it using your hand; and the plastic-feeling body. I exchanged it for a higher level product because my ‘business’ requires a video quality a bit closer to professional, but i would absolutely say this canon hf r506 is an excellent consumer level product.
Look and feel=============out of the box i was able to point and shoot within minutes. Intuitive menu, and it felt quite solid and well made in the hand. I had suggested to my wife some shooting subjects but she declined. ) so i filmed an array of things: cycling, birds, dogs, kids, and even landscape. Optics======it has a 57x ‘advanced zoom’ and so i set about testing it out in the local park. It captured the detail in the trees on the opposite side of the park (a good 1/3-1/2 mile away). The blurb states it has a 3.
The image quality is great as long as the scene is well lit. I’ve bought this for casual filming, and youtube videos etc. The image quality is great as long as the scene is well lit. In poor light, you get plenty of noise. But as long as you are aware of the limitations, you can create some great video with this little camera. I also like the fact that you can use manual focus, and even ‘pull focus’, i. Change the focus point during filming, although this happens at rather a slow pace. Don’t expect dslr quality or bokeh, but it’s very good at what it claims to do.
Canon Legria HF R506 High Definition Camcorder – Black (3.2MP, 32x Optical Zoom, 57x Advanced Zoom, Optical Image Stabilisation) 3inch LCD : It’s a cheap, high-quality handycam, and excels at being a handycam. . I’d read some negative reviews on this camera but i eventually decided to go for it. Firstly, there seems to be an opinion that the battery only offers 30 minutes of power. This is incorrect, fully charged my camera can offer me an hour and a half of of recording, to potentially two hours. The picture is sharp and crisp, it is surprisingly light (when the battery is not attached) and offers the option to be mounted on two different sized tripods (edit: the second hole is in fact a hole for locking the camera on place on the supporting tripod, the tripod that mounts this camera is in fact a standard 1/4″ threaded hole, apologies). The zoom function is good, i can use it to read the spine of a cd cover 5 metres away without blurring (although it does require a specific level of zoom, full zoom may still blur). It does not come with any form of on-board memory, and while reasonably expensive the sandisk sdsdu-064g-ffp memory card offers 64gb of memory which the camera tells me is enough for over 8 hours recording time. The camera’s microphone is again criticised. It does not come with the functionality to mount a separate microphone and outdoors the on-board microphone may suffer poor sound quality but in-doors it is good, although works best directionally. The camera comes packaged with a micro-usb to usb cable, a micro-hdmi to hdmi cable to use with a pc and tv respectively, and an input for headphones to listen to playback.
