Great video quality

Glen, Canon
30 May 2014
  • Conclusion: 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. Additionally, this camera is the only one I can find at this price with a mic jack. I have not had a need to use some of the features, such as the WIFI or software.
  • Pros: Great sound/audio, excellent image quality

  • Summary: I didn't realize how small this would be! Apparently clear and user-friendly device with touch screen and more features. So excited to use!

Small, but very capable

  • 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). I would recommend unplugging headphones after a sound test, but I consider this user headspace-and-timing, and the issue may be with the headphones themselves.

Great for beginner

AN D, Amazon

  • Summary: I was looking for a good camcorder for my project, then I did many researches online. For me, I have to use a manual fouce camcorder, and this camcorder does it. It has auto fouce and manual fouce(but only with some modes), and its menu options is good for me. The only thing I complain is the menu size is pretty small, but other things are nice. I am happy to purchase it!

Love my new Camera!

  • 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. If you're looking for a reliable flexible camcorder spend the extra dough and buy the canon vixia.

  • Summary: Video quality is amazing. Better than expected for the price paid. I video all of my son's high school basketball games in gyms with different light conditions. So far the videos have all been great.

The best for the price

J. Skiff, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • 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. Without the Low Light setting the picture looked orange, but with the low light setting the colors were a perfect match. Exactly the right hue and saturation.

  • Summary: The camera is easy to use and has all the bells and whistles that my junior film maker wanted. I did order two extra batteries and a charger - so far it's all we've needed!
