Canon product good but software makes it useless

Bryan C., Newegg
6 October 2010
  • Summary: It should include something other than pixela for getting the video from the camcorder. Shame on Canon for bundling such inferior and useless software.
  • Pros: Good Quality picture and recording Easy to use and navigate Good battery life Small form factor HD video at a low price
  • Cons: Bundled software is the worst I have ever seen. Proprietary editing software that does not convert to any other format that is usable by Camtasia or other editors. Plan on buying Sony Vegas Studio pro (@ $100) with this so you can convert the video into some format that can be viewed and edited o...

Entry-level HD camcorder

C. Hyde, Amazon

  • Summary: The Canon Vixia HF R10 produces good video in good light. My main complaints are the graininess in low-light conditions and the clicking sound in quiet settings, which has been discussed in other reviews. Generally, though, this is a good 1080 HD camcorder for enthusiasts.

Canon Vixia HF R10

Jewelz, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera is small and light, but is rather complicated. It would have been nice to know that it is not compatible with macs, only PC's. Have to download to a PC, convert it, then transfer it to the mac. Defeated the entire purpose of purchasing these cameras. Instruction book is useless.

ticking noise very audible

  • Summary: That ticking noise that everyone talks about is most definitely present in the audio and becomes annoying very quickly when recording quiet scenes. (such as recording a baby indoors). I considered buying an external mic, but unless you plan on using that solely, it's a deal breaker.

Not bad, within its price range.

  • Summary: For the price, I actually like this camcorder quite a lot, but let me get the gripe out of the way first. Here's the problems: 1. The auto focus makes a clearly audible noise in quiet situations. If there is talking or background noise you won't notice so much, so it's not a huge deal.

Overall good camera

aaron, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice quality camcorder with useful features. The auto-focus makes a clicking noise that prevents this camera from being a good movie-making camera, especially since there is no way to control the manual focus while filming. Still, audio is decent and this camera lasted me many years.

It's not true 1080 HD

CM, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: I don't have this camcorder but this review is based on using a working one at a store. They let me try it out and even save footage onto my laptop. For practical purposes, it's a fine camcorder but expensive for what it is.
