This review is from: Canon VIXIA HF R400 (8155B004) Black 1/4.85" CMOS 3.0" 230K Touch LCD 32X Optical Zoom High Definition Camcorder
Pros: - Low price. - Excellent image quality after switching to highest bitrate for MP4 video and 60 fps. - Rotate and swivel display is nice feature. - Image Stabilization (IS) is great. - Nice zoom amount. Digital zoom isn't overbearing and is subtle. - Battery life indicator seems to be very accurate.
Cons: - Lens cover is not electronically controlled, wish it was because I sometimes forget to close it. - Viewing angle on display isn't that great. It's a TN panel, wish they had used an IPS or OLED display. - The rotating and swivel display feels a bit low quality, like it could break with little force. - Doesn't auto power off when plugged into computer, even when there is no file copy operations and the camera is idle. I hope they add this capability in a firmware update.
Other Thoughts: I decided to buy another Canon camera because they treated me well on a previous camera of theirs. After three years said camera started having CCD problems and took bad pictures. I sent it into them for warranty repair and they fixed that plus another issue I didn't ask them to and had it back to me in less than a week. I can only hope I will get this level of service again should something go wrong with this camera.
So far i'm really happy with the camera. I am still learning all its features and functions. I'll post another review in a couple months after I get more acquainted.
It is my opinion that touchscreens for these cameras are a bit of an annoyance. Sure some things its nice, but I would just prefer an old fashioned dial to switch between shooting modes. I find trying to find the desired mode and setting to be at times cumbersome and slow with the touchscreen.
