Canon Legria HF R18 HD camcorder


The Canon Legria HF R18 (AKA Canon Vixia HF 11) is an entry-level high-def camcorder aimed squarely at the casual end of the market. Its main selling points are a 20x optical zoom lens and a semi-affordable price tag. .

20x optical zoom ; Affordable price ; Decent performance in bright lighting

Struggled in low to mid lighting ; No external audio ; Poor still image mode

The Canon Legria HFR 18 provides cheap HD video to those who can't afford a mid-range or high-end camcorder.
