5 November 2014
Summary: So when you break from Hi-8 and DV, what's next...The R30. Read the specs of this and other machines. You'll come back. Light weight, high quality, cheap media. The camera is basically split in half. The AVCHD, which this machine favors and MP4.
Summary: Didn't give it a 5 because we're still getting used to using it, loading the program onto our computer took longer than advertised. Like the size, controls are easy once you get used to them. Great picture!
Summary: I reviewed a lot about this product before decide buying HF-R300 few moths ago. I'm so surprised AMAZON hasn't changed the HF-R30 "dual" SDXC card slot comment. It's important that AMAZON modifies the description because HF-R30 has just 1 sdxc slot !!! just see the pictures!!!
Summary: I just got an Canon HF R30 to replace my 13 year old DV camera. Grate camera except: comes with a small battery: the viewfinder is hard to see in the sun! If it wasn't for that I would have given 5 stars. Other than that I'm very satisfied with the camera.
Summary: This inexpensive video camera ($249 when I bought it) has a number of options for recording. For one party I used the AVCHD setting at 17 Mbps setting and I got two hours of continuous video on a 16 GB card. I had the camera plugged in as the batteries I had would certainly not last that long.
