The camera it's self is good, but don't expect the WiFi controls to work for you.

Andy Wise, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: So I purchased this camera because I recently started a YouTube series and I really wanted two separate features in a camera and they were... 1) A remote control so I wouldn't have to either have someone with me to start and stop to make cutting scenes easier or have to walk back and forth myself.

Mixed Review - GREAT Mp4 Video Quality. Wi-Fi Remote is Slow..

Hey Mimi, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: Length:: 6:05 Mins Attached Video is "How to Connect Your Vixia to the WiFi Remote Control." SOME of the video included here was shot with the Vixia HF R40,(some with an iPhone)so the video quality is not a result of the camcorder!

Totally useless indoors (not even talking low light here). WiFi remote functionality is a joke.

  • Summary: I have had the camera for a couple of weeks now. In my use case, I have it mounted overhead (looking down onto a counter top) to shoot cooking videos. It is more or less in a fixed location .. similar to a tripod situation.

The best for the price

J. Skiff, Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: I love the feel of this camcorder. It is so much more substantial than the Sony for the same price. The features are exactly what I needed. WiFi, great picture, easy zoom, remote mike. I had heard it was not good in low light, however, if you choose Scene, and Low Light, it compensated perfectly.

My 7 year old HV20 is much better.

Bud Bud Ding Ding, Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: This camcorder serves a purpose and offers a fair feature set for the price, but as owner of a 7 year old canon HV20 camcorder i am disappointed with the R40. My first major disappointment is with the low light capability, its very bad in low light situations producing a very grainy picture.
