Excerpt: At first glance this camcorder looks cheap and not that many functions,but if u read the manuel and learn how to access its many options it is very easy and very user friendly.Definitely appreciate the many recording formats and playback options!
Excerpt: I have 2 other HD video cameras of similar price, and I am very impressed with the quality of video recorded on this particular camera. Image looks very crisp and clear, even when zoomed in from quite a distance. Sound is great.
Summary: Small but mighty. I have a production company, and I'm telling you that this little guy out performs cameras that cost more than 20x the amount. The detail is amazing, color reproduction stunning, and to top it off, the Image Stabilization in it is so smooth, with a good cameraman, there's no need...
Summary: Got this as a gift for someone who does not like transferring media using cables, SD cards, installing software onto PC , etcetera. After reading reviews about built in wi-fi and remote streaming to any portable device, this seemed like a perfect match.
Summary: This Canon R40 has so far delivered the knockout punch when the time arrives for recording video. It just simply works, and at the same time, it is simple to use, no Ph.D required. Use the R40 to shoot low definition in MP4 mode or high definition in 60P mode. I highly recommend it
Summary: I purchased this little jewel prior to a trip to Charleston to visit our grand kids. On the 5th day of out 8-day visit, the camera was in my wife's lap where were sitting on a dock having cocktails.
Summary: Got excellent results using this camera for a 2-hour Veteran's History Project session. The only caveat is that it picked up a hum from my headphones plugged into the AV/headphone jack (yes, I had switched it from AV to headphone).
Summary: The canon vixia hf r40 hd is the best camcorder i've had so far! It came with plenty of features built in the camcorder like picture filters and video filters. The video quality was above par (compared to my sony handycam) and overall i was very impressed when i downloaded videos into my computer.
