Q & As

Canon LEGRIA HF R56 HD 1080p Camcorder, 3.28MP, 32x Optical Zoom, 8GB, Wi-Fi, 3” Touch Screen 4 5 4 4
Really useless product Have owned three camcorders previously. This one was impossible to use ion even cloudy days due to reflections in the screen. Forced to exchange for another. Make. Complaint to Canon, apart from the initial automated acknowledgement, was ignored. So much for their customer care and was the reason I chose another make of Camera and will never purchase a Canon product again. 04 November 2014
New Video Recorder This camcorder is much smaller and lighter than my 10 year old. The optical stabiliser works well in keeping the picture steady especially when panning. It has a good long zoom but if using at full stretch a tripod for which screw fittings are built in would be advisable. Pity that the camcorder is not supplied with an SD card as this is the most convenient method of recording, storing and transferring videos. Set up on the touch screen was straightforward and easy to use. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase. 20 August 2014
Well engineered product from a prestigious manufacturer. Well balanced for the job, perfect HD Video and high Res stills and not to mention beautiful sound capture. 01 August 2014
Excellent ,compact and versatile Camcorder this is VERY compact, has plenty of built in memory -excellent results in multiple conditions and can be used by novice users with ease - compact size, simple styling and lightweight, with good usability through a touch screen - wifi connection for easy uploading, though it can of course be loaded from the SD card if you're using one - MP4 format available as well as other modes - 32X optical zoom and optical stabilisation - 3 inch touch screen on small camera 20 May 2014
