Canon Legria HF R206 review

 

Coming in below £300, the HF R206 is right at the budget end of the HD camcorder market. But despite this, it looks pretty slick, feels well-built and has some specifications that really stand out at this low price. Its main rival to date is the £350...

A decent budget-HD camcorder with dual card slots, but it suffers badly in less than optimal conditions.

It's light, and easy to use. The battery life could do with some working on. All in all it's not a bad camera, the picture quality is good. I've yet to transfer my Holiday shots to my PC with the Transfer Utility which comes with the camera.

Canon Legria HF-R206

 

Easy to use and its stand-by function thats allows you to start shooting again within 3 secs in great. Having files instead of recorded tape allows easy deletion of unwanted shots

Its TOO light. I personally would prefer something with a bit of weight to ease the steadiness whilst shooting, especially at arms length. And i would also like a view finder, as sun light can make the screen hard to see
