Canon Legria HF R506

 

The image stabilisation system and general ease of use make it easy to produce great videos with this camera

I need videos with no audio, so although the mic sensitivity can be turned right down, it is not possible to completely switch it off, resulting in file sizes much bigger than they need to be
