Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding value I've owned many video cameras and the HF R500 is the least expensive - but produces the best video. The image stabilisation is the best I've seen, with care it looks like a tripod is being used. It lacks some of the features of other cameras I've owned, but as I rarely - if ever - used them, it's not a concern to me. I really like this camcorder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great zoom and clarity. Just received the HF R500 today. Was surprized how small it is. Took 4 hours to charge the tiny battery. Don't let its size fool you. This takes incredible video. HD 60p is incredible. I did have some trouble post capture in burning an AVCHD DVD to play on my blue ray player. After three attempts, I tried to see if my blue ray player would play the edited mp4 file from a jump drive. It did flawlessly. MP4 is becoming more mainstream. I am glad this camera has both options during capture. The zoom is smooth and has three speeds plus a variable setting. The optical image stabilizer works well. I used this camera indoors and was very slightly grainy compared to older cameras. Overall, I was impressed, especially for the low price. I only wish the lens was threaded so I could attach a polarizing filter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not great This is a good camera for beginners. Full of features and it feels right in your hand. Good weight, good size. What I personally did not like was a rattling sound in the camera body when you tilted the camera in any direction. I thought perhaps I had a defective one and returned it. The replacement had the same annoying rattling. The rattling does show up on the recordings if you move the camera too much while filming. Not sure how this made it through quality control, or if this affects all cameras in their line, but it made me return it for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a real nice christmas I received a canon vixia hf r500 for christmas and so far i am enjoying it very much it replaces my old fs300 my old camera works great but it was time to step up to hd also the external mic jack makes this camera a real winner everything from the touch screen to the headphone jack are nice additions to a great compact and easy to use camera

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice camcorder This was my first Canon purchase and I am very pleased. The camcorder is small, lightweight and very easy to use. I was able to fit it inside my purse. I would recommend this camcorder for starters. I plan on purchasing more Canon products in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very pleased with product I am so far very pleased with the product. This is a new experience and using the camcorder to do the basics is going very well. I have a major complaint. Considering the price of the product I am very upset that it does not come with an operating manual. You are referred to the website for the manual only to find that Canon expects you to print out 200 pages to have a complete manual. Same is true for the software to use the camcorder with your computer. Instead of sending a disc to upload the software as other electronic manufacturers do you are expected to go on line to download that information. I can assure you that these penny pinching items by Canon on an expensive piece of electronics will be a major consideration in my choice of future products I buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vixia Camera I really like the Canon Vixia video camera. It's ease of use as well as other functions such as the snap shot function is nice to have. I love the camera's ability to stabilize your motion and give you clear video. Great product and well worth the purchase.
