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

Canon Legria HFR36

 

I bought this camera to shoot a wedding and overall, wasn't dissappointed. None of the build quality issues the review mentions, the body is solid, the tiny size, I think, is a bonus. Yes, the menus aren't particularly straight forward, but 15 minutes...
