Summary: I really love this camcorder it dose everything it claim to do in the description and makes better videos then I expected.

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.
Excerpt: I use a Canon Vixia G20 for work, so I was already a fan. I decided to purchase the 500 for personal use-- and I have only made a one-minute video with it, but I can already tell that it's wonderful.

The image stabilisation is the best I've seen, with care it looks like a tripod is being used.
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.
