    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use, Video quality

    This was the first camcorder I have purchased in over 20 years, and my how the technology has advanced. I wanted to be able to take videos of my sons lacrosse games and I must say the quality of the footage at 60p is amazing, even at indoor facilities with dimmer lighting. Initial setup was fairly easy. (battery does take about 7 hours for the initial charge) I went with the R800 over the other 2 models with internal storage and just got a 64gb memory card instead. I like to transfer my videos the same day I shoot them so I can keep them organized on my external storage drive. I also read a lot of reviews on the wifi features of the more expensive versions and decided it wasn't worth spending the extra dollars on. I keep a JOBY - GorillaPod™ 325 Tripod attached to it if I need to set it down, and also to help keep it steady in my shaky hand. Overall I am very pleased with this camcorder features, ease of use, and quality of videos. When I found it on sale for $169 at Best Buy, I was even happier :)

    There are no mind boggling special features about this little gem. You point it at the subject, it captures the image reliably and you keep pointing it till you're through. The high resolution imagery is equally suited for your kid's birthday party or live streaming a sporting event. The HDMI output works nicely in a variety of settings. Sure, a larger camera with more features will do more work, but if you're on a tight budget, can you afford that larger camera? Great product but especially for the money!

    I have been pleased with the performance of this camera. We purchased it and paired it with an Elgato Video Capture device to set up a live stream for our Sunday morning worship service. It has worked well up to this point. The only critique I will give is with the auto focus. There are times during our live stream that it will drop out of focus and have to readjust. I believe some of this might have to do with our lighting, but it also seems that this camera struggles a little in that area.

    Works about as youd expect. Pretty good video in most lighting conditions, and acceptable audio. Mic in and phones out make it much more flexible. Strong telephoto, not quite enough wide angle for indoor shots. A good inexpensive option for solid 1080 video with good picture quality (good color, grain, focus, distortion, etc). Not as quite as good as an older vixia I had, but about 20% of the cost and a quarter the size. Seems as good or better than any other options within 2x this price or more.

    The camera itself is easy to use and the quality of the recorded image is quite good. You record to an SD card (sold separately) and then you can burn the video to a DVD-R; however, you will need to buy some DVD editing software in order to burn a DVD that is viewable on a stand-alone DVD player. Without using that software your DVDs are only viewable on your PC. I paid about $70 for the software.

    Bought this for church streaming. It has helpful features and somewhat intuitive. If you have questions though you have to download a pdf file or view instructions online - you can't just read the manual and that is annoying when you are setting things up. The size is fantastic and easy to hold. Once you know what you're doing and what you want it's easy to be happy with it. I wish that I had considered the wifi enabled Vixia, remote control would have been something I would have liked to have.

    Convenient to use with my Mac and OS High Sierra. Sturdy-it still works after being dropped. One problem: Canon needs to upgrade the software for transferring files to computer, so it will work with Mac OS Catalina.

    We use this as a Live Stream camera so we don’t record directly to it much. The HDMI out is super beneficial. I didn’t give it 5 stars only because I haven’t figured out how to get the audio input not to buzz. I’m sure it’s user error but it seems to be a issue I’ve seen o line with others. All in all it’s a great upgrade for live streaming, podcasting, YouTube and is less than half the price of the other cameras I was recommended. We’re happy with it.

    Using several of these cameras for fixed locations in music venue. HDMI out is active (whether recording or not) for live feed to video monitors. Auto color/lighting works well even with dynamic stage lighting. Good value vs features vs performance.

    There is a steep learning curve to control this camera's many abilities. UNLESS you set on full automatic, then it runs itself and seeks the best settings. External microphone in port allows a wireless mic setup...this is the least expensive camcorder that has that feature. Does everything except 4k, for price, it is awesome.

    Has everything you need... 32x zoom, internal mic and external mic input and HDMI out. However... make sure you use it in well-lit spaces; not the greatest with indoor lighting.

    I purchased this camcorder to double as a webcam. Very easy to set up and use. Loved that you could chase clean hdmi output. Good stabilizing. Great bang to the money. I have it 4 stars because the LED screen is a little too grainy. That was a slight bummer but even still a great little camcorder.

    This camcorder is great for beginners. I'm not a tech savvy person & I'm able to use this with ease. Works great for YouTubers. Can't upload from the camcorder itself, but you can save the videos from the camcorder to your computer. Built-in mic also works great.

    This is a great little compact video camera. Was definitely intended on a "point and shoot" premise. Lacks some of the manual control I would have liked. But that is not the intent with this camera. Quality is excellent.
