Canon Legria HF R606 Black


This is just a great little all rounder! Image quality is great and ease of use means you can capture those important moments quickly and minimum hassle.

No real issues other than holding the device. Can be a little uncomfortable after long periods of filming.

In direct sunlight it is difficult to see the screen, it may be an idea to fit the viewing screen with an anti glare cover which I have had to do.
