  • Summary: so far camera works fine. Dissapointed that has manual shutter. Every time you use it you have to remember to open and close the shutter door. I will probably get use to it, but for now, it is a pain

Great little camcorder, but I hope you didn't buy it for the smartphone control.

Milton, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera works as advertised, has all the specs I needed.... but unfortunately the smartphone app leaves a lot to be desired (at least on Android). You won't be able to install it directly from the play store for a lot of devices (no support for the Galaxy S4, nexus line of devices, the HTC One...

My 7 year old HV20 is much better.

Bud Bud Ding Ding, Amazon
25 September 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.

For Apple/Mac users... only in MP4 Format

13 May 2013
  • Summary: Just wanted to write a quick review for those with Apples/Mac computers. This records in MP4 to the SD card, so all you need to do, especially if you have a macbook pro, is put the SD card into your MBP slot and you can just drag the files to your computer.
