Canon Vixia HF R10 review:

 

There's a lot to like about Canon's entry-level Vixia HF R series of "high-definition" camcorders, such as its user interface--which is better than that of its more expensive sibling--and its mic and headphone jacks, which are a rare find in this...

Mic and headphone jacks rare in this price class; straightforward and functional design.

Poor low-light video and color accuracy; lens doesn't focus very closely; subpar battery life.

If you're looking to shoot great HD video on the cheap, keep looking; the Canon Vixia HF R series delivers decent video at best, even for its modest price. But for a low-priced model with mic and headphone jacks, the HF R100 is a pretty good deal.

Good for the price while it works.

 

Had it for two years, lost the charger. Bought a new charger a few months later. Found out the auto-focus was stuck/broken. Now it is a paperweight.

Low price Nice features Compact

Poor quality in low light. Battery dies before the internal memory is even half-full.

To expensive for what you get.

Somewhat of a low price.

It makes a VERY annoying sound inside that is picked from the microphone when recording. I called CANON, they said it was the dynamic stabilizer and if I turned it off the sound would stop, Well that didn't work because I think it's the lens that does...

It's incredible!!!

 

Very impressed with a small good priced HD camera. I've been a DP for 15 years and this is a small camera full of highend features. I'm using a class 10 A Data card and works fine. Would like to buy 2 more of these whenever they come in.

Very easy to use but you have to read the pdf manual to really see what you can do with this great camera. Has an audio meter and an attenuator which only comes on mid to high end cameras. Able to turn everything off and use it manually. Facial...

cannot screw on a lens filter to protect the lens while shooting outside, camera gets hot like a laptop when playing back footage, which also makes the battery hot...that could be dangerous. Wish battery was on back of camera so as to get a bigger...

Canon product good but software makes it useless

 

It should include something other than pixela for getting the video from the camcorder. Shame on Canon for bundling such inferior and useless software.

Good Quality picture and recording Easy to use and navigate Good battery life Small form factor HD video at a low price

Bundled software is the worst I have ever seen. Proprietary editing software that does not convert to any other format that is usable by Camtasia or other editors. Plan on buying Sony Vegas Studio pro (@ $100) with this so you can convert the video...
