Canon Legria HF R106


Picture quality. Ease of use. Compact and light.

The microphone recorded the noise of the autofocus motor to such an extent that it spoilt any recording made indoors or in a quiet area. It sounded like a saucepan lid rattling on a boiling saucepan.

East to carry and when you have fingers like sausages its still generally easy to use .

Battery life could be better but purchasing a couple of spares solves the problem
