    I have read the reviews on the camcorder and it has everything i want in the camcorder. Even through I have not used it yet due to some problems that came up i am sure that i will love this camcorder over the old JVC camcorder i had gotten on Facebook.

    Exceeded My Expectations

    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 :)

    I bought R800 after reading a few reviews. I needed it mainly for shooting self-tapes auditions, which casting directors require due to Covid-19. The R800 does the job. You can connect a separate microphone, but make sure the microphone has its own power. I bought a mic without it's own power, and had to return it. However, the built in Mic on the R800 is sufficient if you are within a few feet of the camera. I would have given the R800 5 stars, but the user directions are very confusing. And to make matters worse, the directions also make reference to other Canon camcorders, in particular the R80. Also, you need to go online to get the user directions. In any event, while trying to find directions to get the built- in Mic to work, I discovered that the R800 probably has more features than I need. If you need a good, basic, inexpensive camcorder, I would recommend the R800.

    This is not an amazing camera, but it is darn good for what it costs. I wish there was something in between this one and the real high end stuff but I couldn’t find one so this one is standing in and doing a good enough job. Not great in low light, not fantastic when zoomed in but I haven’t seen anything close to as good for this price. It gets the job done and saves a pile of money... ok, I’m a “glass is half empty” guy today! Let’s try this... If you need a camera for vlogging or shooting movies of the kids social distancing at the park with their pals... then this is The camera for you! Get it and enjoy. If you are looking to make movies and compete for an Oscar, either shell out some big money for a top end unit or try a “Blair witch” type production and use this! Go ahead, buy it, you might not be sorry :)

    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!

    Good camera

    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.

    This camcorder even has adjustments for the audio record level! Very impressive for a small camcorder. All of the functions that I want to adjust are available, even headphone audio level. This is an ugrade from an earlier Canon Vixia camcorder.

    We bought this for work and it has good quality and you can take still images as well as video. Perfect if you don't wanna fill up the memory on your phone with video but still wanna capture the kids ball game or other events.

    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.

    Camera is good. I like the external mic input, however the one thing I noticed is that you can not turn off the AGC, at least I can't find that setting. With it on, it boosts noise when there is audio silence.

    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.

    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.

    I am not using the Vixia in the traditional way, but rather as a webcam. The camera has functioned flawlessly, running for several hours per day. Fast focus, a very sharp image, and a rotating screen make this 1080p camera an asset to my particular video needs.
