The Legria HF R36 has reasonable image quality, but its built-in Wi-Fi and Story Creator function make it an ideal family camcorder

While the HFR36 is a cheap camcorder, you definitely get what you pay for.

Well priced ; Inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity

Flimsy build quality ; Video quality not great ; Frustrating interface and menus

Value for money, very sharp video image, mp4, wifi to PC / iPad directly, SD card slot, very light to carry.

Battery life, no view finder (very hard to see anything at bright spot), a bit blurry when panning fast.
