Canon HF-R800, The best

This camera has an excellent zoom and great picture quality. I’ve used in a few times in dimly lit areas and am happy with it. I bought it to make home videos the old school way and my children love it.

Love it it was a good price and great deal and it will be very good and easy to use.

It is really nice and works well.

Comments from buyers

“Canon R800 Video Camera – First hands on, first impressions, learning along the way before I RTFM.
, Very good camcorder, cheap price but it has good stabilisation
, The camera is a fantastic camcorder. The camera and chip are as advertised

Everything you need to make grandchildren videos.

No night vision, also the extra’s i received with the camera were all off brand knock offs. The extra battery was for a vivitar camera that compatible with canon?. Overall its a good camera that looks good, also very small.

The accessories are super cheap.

The camera is a fantastic camcorder. The camera and chip are as advertised. The bag is a little disappointing, but it’s ok and it will serve, buying the bundle saved me the time of looking for one. It was a little disappointing that the spare battery is an aftermarket (not oem) battery which i probably should have guessed. If you don’t want to spend the time sourcing all the bits separately this is a good deal.

It takes a very high quality video and is exactly what we wanted. I am concerned that the pictured information doesn’t let you know that the tripod is the same size as the picture itself. We were expecting something that could be used to video a basketball game, but the tripod is actually 4 inches tall and doesn’t appear to be useful for anything.

I bought this to record my daughter’s soccer games. Very good zoom capabilities. Noticing a blue fringing on players in white uniforms. I have toyed around with the various shooting settings to see if the image coloring can be corrected but i have been unsuccessful so far. There is no mute button on the device itself, only through sub menus which can be a little difficult to navigate on the small ish screen. The 4k capabilities of this device and higher fps settings make this a desirable camera for the entry point price. Amateurs will find this camera to be effective. The hardest function to get used to is the zoom feature which is on the top and closest to your right hand. Lefties, this probably is not the camera for you.

Very good camcorder, cheap price but it has good stabilisation, poor mic and light. You will need a shot gun mic and a good lighting. It does not perform well in dark conditions. But good quality video, and pictures. In a daylight you will no problems, it does have good video quality with very good stabilisation no matter how bad you shake your hands this camcorder will stay focus very sharp for starters or youtube video excellent camcorder.

Came with everything works great. That sd memory card is all you need. The light is a nice and bright light. The only thing is the tripod wish it was a little taller other then that i really like this package deal.

Not much better than a much cheaper sony i had but it does the job.

Very pleased and very compact.

I really like canon products and want the next level of performance.

All you need is the 64 card and the camera. The tripod is a joke, the bad is not helpful as i bought an extra mic.

A christmas present for my son.

As i expected, very good bundle deal.

Product was as described and came faster than promised. The camera is really nice and smaller and easier to used than i expected.

See the con’s, and the wish list for the 1/2 star dingsee video review: not a bad consumer camera. For well-lit studios and outdoors you get an excellent image. However, as you dig further into the controls, you will be able to customize and adjust the image and the audio to where you want them. Be aware the settings are not user friendly and take a bit of futzing around to figure things out. But there is power in the ability to tweak and customize. My first shot videos need another lookee-loo when i learn this camera more. You need to watch the prices as they can be all over the place. Look for bundles for a batter deal.

I really like this camera, i don’t get the fish eye effect when driving like one of the reviews stated, and downloading onto my pc is really easy just plug the camera into the usb port on the computer and it starts downloading.

This is a great little camcorder bundle and so small, but delivers big quality shots and movies, easy to use.

Good camera but is hard to see screen in sun. Camera is difficult to use while moving.
