Canon Legria HF R48 review: Camcorder that seems to cover all bases


Seemingly aimed at family users as much as anyone else thanks to its child friendly features, the R48 moves with the times by featuring Wi-Fi and dual recording

Palm-sized proportions, built-in Wi-Fi, quiet and smooth zoom action when adjusting framing mid recording, easy to use, flip-out touch screen operation

Pricey, could be quicker still to determine focus if swapping subjects mid recording or simply zooming in

Factor in a family friendly mode for filming children that features a sports mode-style pre-recording function, five mode audio recording that differentiates between the likes of music and speech, and the Legria would seem to have most bases covered....
