Canon Legria R206 review

187swagga, Ciao
15 May 2012
  • Excerpt: In my opinion this is a good camera but there are better ones. The quality of pictures is good, it has a lot of features and it's easy to use but recording videos with it isn't as good because the camera often skips while recording and also freezes which makes the video quality not as good.
  • Pros: lot of features and good picture quality
  • Cons: isn't as good in less than optimal conditions

Compact camera providing excellent image quality!

Sandford "Sandy", Amazon
19 January 2012
  • Summary: An extremely compact HD camcorder that gives excellent image quality with a more than acceptable sound stage considering the microphone placement. Unusually for a camera of this type it has slots for two SD cards - I fitted mine out with two 16G cards, enough for about 4 hours of HD recording!

Canon Legria HF R206

Gerben O, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: Worked more or less straight out of the box. Limited written instructions on how to get you going, the rest you have to find on the supplied CD - not always practical. I was impressed with the picture quality, but I'm less keen on the touch screen which is not very sensitive and therefore not as...

Great camera for the amateur

V. Warrington, Amazon

  • Summary: This was my first foray into the world of `proper' camcorders - having previously only used the video functionality on my phone or camera. And it pretty much did exactly what I wanted it to do.

No Eyepiece....

Clif Benson, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: I use small handy cam video recorders for wildlife conservation film recording, often at sea where bigger more sophisticated cameras are hard to use on a bouncing deck. My main criticism of this camera is that (like most other compact camera's and handy cam's nowadays), there is no eyepiece, just a...

Does the job - though poor in low-lighting conditions

MyKeyReviews, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: Canon's HF R206 camcorder doesn't look so special when it comes to looks, but it does have a nice simple look to it, that said it's the perfect size for me and is extremely lightweight, making it very comfortable to use.

Good, solid camcorder

Purpleheart, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: I wanted to use this camcorder for a few months before writing my review as that way I'd use it in variable conditions and would get to understand the functions. Overall, I'm very pleased with it - usability is good and the images are excellent except in low light conditions.

Poor battery life

Culture Enthusiast, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: I wanted to upgrade my very basic Nikon digital camera and I have started to look into the camcorders. This camera is good for non pro (I am not a photographer). I wanted something light, with double card storage and with a good zoom.

Great video, great sound

NorfolkBooks, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: This was a perfectly timed replacement for my old tape based camcorder which must be about 10 years old. This is a sleek camcorder which fits very comfortably in the palm of the right hand.

Great Camcorder

Fourteenth Sense, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: Being a Sony camcorder user I was interested in seeing how this Canon would stack up against my much loved HDR-CX130. For all intents and purposes both camcorders have a similar design and a similar feature set.
