I've had previous models that I lost to divorce. Purchased this for simple video of my kids and their sporting events. For a HD camera, the video is mediocre at best? Don't get it. Then the autofocus of this recorder is TERRIBLE. When you zoom in to about 2/3 it's capacity, it has difficulty foc...  see moreof est8esq's review

I do a lot of YouTube videos. The GoPro was just to difficult and hard to work with. The canon has changed my life. I can record with the push of a button, picture is great and videos are easy to remove off the SD card. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fast grab with great video.

I love the video this camera takes, but downloading it onto my computer is extremely difficult. I have followed the directions to the letter, but it takes me forever to get anything other than a message saying the camera cannot be found. they really need to make this camera more user friendly.  see moreof DonInKs's review

Got this camera so I could record my brother's soccer games so he and his team could review what they did wrong and also have my parents who are always working be able to watch the game as well. I do my best to stand at the middle of the field and record the game that way, I use a tri pod and pan th...  see moreof FLJJ24's review

Like other reviews say, good in situations where lighting is prime. However, none of the reviews I read told me that the camera just stops recording on its own. I have hooked the camera up to my computer several times to import a video that was supposed to be lets say 10 mins long, instead was only ...  see moreof youtubecanon's review

I am very unhappy with the VIXIA HF R700. I bought this to record our grandchildren's music programs. In the play back you can barely hear the music. My iphone & ipad make much better recordings. I wanted a designated device for recording so I didn't use my cell phone memory up. I have tried ma...  see moreof Kakie's review

I bought this a month ago. All around a decent camera. Canon is Great. This particular product is nice to experiment with if you are an aspiring filmmaker. But i wouldn't shoot an entire feature with this. It's nice just to play around with. It has its flaws like focusing when it's zoomed in pretty...  see moreof Fserra422's review

From what I have used of this camera, the image is pretty good and crisp in well lit environments. The zoom is pretty amazing coming from someone that has only used a smartphone with digital zoom for videography before. The image typically beats out my smartphone...until the lights go off. Once th...  see moreof JoveroIV's review
