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

Well priced ; Inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity

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

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...

3.2MP chip, proper HD, good build quality, decent picture

Terrible battery life, night time shots noisy
