Good enough to capture some memories of our son

Safiya Stoffel, Amazon
17 July 2014
  • Summary: It's a decent quality camera, nothing completely shattering. Good enough to capture some memories of our son, but not sure if it's that much above the competition for the price point. Easy user interface.

Not bad for a compact camcorder

King Nguyen, Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a good camcorder. I purchased it for my mother. I think the only thing I hate about it is having to set my memory card for it and then I wouldn't be able to use my SD card with any other device I own or i risk deleting it.

Great Little Recorder

Qballrail, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: Bought to replace a Sony Digital 8 for compatibility reasons. Although it takes great video, easy to use, it would have been 5 stars if it had a light and night vision. Paid the same for the Sony several years ago and it was equipped with the light and night vision. Unable to find one for less than $500 with those features. However, it is a great little unit and recommended for nearly any kind of shoots.

Good Camera

Soccer Dad ATL, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: Soccer dad needs to video kids games. Perfect - light, small, good picture quality, easy to use. For about $350, can't complain. Buy a couple of extra memory cards and an extra battery to last all day.

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! ------------------- 2 MONTH UPDATE (excerpt from my comments): I use this Vixia R40 for my YouTube tutorials and reviews, which are always filmed at my desk with just normal indoor desk lighting. The video quality is great.

Start with this and move up as your skills improve.

  • Summary: Excellent beginners video editing camera. Good for home video use. Definitely going to need additional batteries but if you done your research that is a known issue. Regardless definitely worth the money you pay for it.

Good Camcorder but Controls need improvement

GRACIOUS IMBEAH, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: It's a good camcorder for a beginner, but its controls are too complex to use and maneuver around. It can easily be simplified, so that controlling it would not interfere with shooting a scene at the same time.

Good value for price. Needs a bit more manual control for those who are a bit more tech savvy.

Darren E Rice, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: Camera works well as a whole. The WiFi link is easy once it is set up. Some issues with too much distance and a fair bit of buffering when transferring images to the iPad at 3 seconds delay. Camera function great in normal light. When things get dark, the image becomes grainy. Settings are available at 1080p at 3 levels. Only one other setting available and that is at 720p. Camera is excellent at its price though.

Minor Flaw

Rick Briamonte "Rick", Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: I would have given this 5 stars but for some reason when I plug in the external mic and record and upload to edit, I have a hum which is really annoying. Everything else works perfectly fine.
