  • Excerpt: I use this camcorder for dirt track racing and film many of my friends. They all comment how crystal clear the video comes out on a DVD.

  • Excerpt: My brief experience so far with this camera has been very good. Lots of features (although the user interface on the video screen is a little clunky and not very intuitive). Biggest issue is no operating manual.

Nice Camera

Bobsessed, Canon

  • Excerpt: I probably waited too long to buy a new digital video camera. The last one I had was a VHS-C type! I bought the Canon Vixia HF R500 simply because of the fact that it has an input for an external microphone......and the price was excellent.

Camera works great for day and night

  • Summary: No doubt Canon is worth every penny. Years ago you needed twice the time and budget to get the quality of video Canon provides. It is very easy to work and the instructional gives you clear guidance on making the most of this HD camcorder.
