What reviewers liked

Right out of the box, Canon’s VIXIA HF R800 camcorder bundle will have you ready to film anything and everything. From cute home videos and graduation ceremonies to those precious dance recitals you’ll never want to forget, Canon’s 57x Advanced Zoom will guarantee you can get the money shot even if you’re stuck in the back rows of the high school gym.
In addition to capturing HD 1920 x 1080 footage, you’ll enjoy the enhanced brightness and visual quality from the R800’s DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor which captures more light, eliminating noise from even the darkest scenes. At 8.5 ounces, the camera’s body fits snugly in your hand, and the 3-inch LCD touchscreen offers an easy-to-read, user-friendly interface.
This compact full HD camcorder is lightweight at just a little over 10 ounces even with its battery pack.
