Canon Vixia HF R30 Camcorder Review
The Canon HF R30 is a small camcorder with a traditional shape and a better-than-average handstrap. If you've handled a camcorder made in the past few years, it probably looked like a slightly larger HF R30. This camcorder is light and slim, has a decent grip, but doesn't have any thing all that special on its body. No flash, no video light, no special built-in connectivity features (other than a 3.5mm mic jack). The camcorder's LCD is 3-inches in size, which is good, but the screen resolution is so low that it makes the HF R30 feel older than it actually is. The 32x optical zoom lens gives you plenty of zoom to play around with, but you can get this amount of zoom on nearly any budget camcorder these days.
