Fair camera for the money


I have had a Canon FS100 for several years and it is a great camera. I upgraded to the HFR60 because I wanted to be able to record in HD. The HD is great but I miss the internal battery and automatic lens cover. The new camera also handles low light...

Camera features are user friendly.


The camera was easy to set up and it is easy to use. We have used it to video several events. We have also used the features to play back the videos on the camera as well as on our TV both were easy to do as well.

Great camera for the price


The camera is great for the price I paid for it. It is constantly trying to stay focused on the faces that are being recorded. It's nice for a beginner that it stays focused on the faces instead of having to do it myself.
