Canon Legria HF R106 review

 

Cheap and mostly cheerful, the Canon Legria HF R106 is by no means perfect, but it's certainly one of the best camcorder options available in the sub-£250 price bracket.

Good all rounders

 

Not so good in dark situations and the compensation for movement of the camera can sometimes go a bit off when it's still (just switch the compensation off if that's the case) but otherwise great bit of kit. Definitely worth the money.

A case of switching on the camera & pressing record...pretty simple

No HDMI lead provided but apart from that no complaints
