    3.28MP Full HD CMOS Image Sensor
    This model is equipped with a 3.28MP Full HD CMOS image sensor that supports 1920 x 1080 resolution video capture. Canon's high-resolution HD CMOS sensor features extra sensitivity that delivers lifelike Full HD video with natural color - even in low light.

    DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor
    This camcorder incorporates an advanced Canon HD the DIGIC DV 4 image processor for enhanced imaging performance. The increased performance allows for better noise reduction and leads to brighter, more noise-free images - even in dark scenes.
    MP4 or AVCHD Progressive Recording
    Whether you're capturing MP4 or AVCHD files, this model supports Full HD 1920 x 1080/60p video capture. Full HD 1080/60p recording captures twice the amount of information as 60i, and with images captured at a rate of 60 frames per second, diagonal noise is eliminated so even fast moving subjects show up clearly. This provides a greater sense of detail and faithful rendering of moving edges, plus enhanced color and fine tonal gradation. AVCHD Progressive records at bit rates up to 28 Mbps, while MP4 files are captured at bit rates up to 35 Mbps.
    Slow & Fast Motion Recording
    Record fast motion at up to 1200x and slow motion at 1/2x for increased creative possibilities.
    Powerful 57x Advanced Zoom
    Thanks to an impressive 57x Advanced Zoom range, long-range shooting is not a problem. You'll be able to create videos with dynamic variety, and you'll be less likely to disrupt the action you're shooting. The Advanced Zoom works well for a variety of situations including formal ceremonies, recording animals in the wild, candid family videos and more. The Advanced Zoom is available in manual mode and has been achieved with more efficient use of the effective imaging area. It takes the camcorder's focal length from 32.5mm all the way to 1853mm (35mm equivalent), which provides extraordinary flexibility in shooting. Plus, for more convenient shooting and better creative control over your videos, the camcorder offers continually variable zoom speed settings with three fixed zoom speeds and 15 levels available.
    SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization
    Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer corrects camera shake instantly, so even handheld video taken at long focal lengths is sharp and steady. Providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion (with extra compensation applied at wide-angle focal lengths), the Dynamic Image Stabilization system on this camcorder stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling horizontal, vertical and roll axis rotational camera shake ensures smooth, distortion-free video - even when you're walking while shooting.
    Capacitive 3" Touch Panel LCD
    A capacitive 3" touch panel LCD screen that makes recording and other operations easy. Open the panel and the power is on. A gentle touch activates the display's intuitive functions. Choose a focal point, track moving subjects, control exposure for selected areas, and operate camcorder controls from the screen - all with a touch. In addition, the easy-to-use user interface makes your shooting experience simpler. The Home button is on the menu screen, and provides quick access to all functions. Clear explanations for key settings pop up when selecting shooting modes and recording formats, so you can be confident in the decisions you make.
    SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card Slot
    The camcorder records Full HD video directly to a removable SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card. Widely available in several capacities, SD memory cards let you share your videos quickly and easily. In addition to SD memory cards, this model also lets you use high-capacity SDHC cards and super-high capacity SDXC cards.
    Framing Assistance Function
    Reduces the zoom magnification when you lose sight of a subject during zooming, making it easier for you to find re-locate your subject and zoom in again.
    Intelligent IS
    Intelligent IS makes it easy to shoot clear, sharply focused video - even in situations that typically cause camera shake. The Intelligent IS system analyzes the shooting situation for you, and then automatically switches to the image stabilization method best able to produce sharp, steady video. Four IS systems cover the gamut of shooting situations. Dynamic IS corrects minor movement and the shaking caused by walking while shooting. Macro IS delivers perfectly steady close-up shots. Powered IS comes into play when you're using the camcorder's powerful zoom, correcting shake that can occur in telephoto shots. Tripod mode stops IS when the camcorder is stationary.
    Audio Scene Select
    Audio Scene Select offers five modes that automatically optimize settings based on the recording situation, making it easy to record realistic, immersive audio in a range of situations.
    Smart AUTO
    Smart AUTO lets you capture clear, bright, well-focused video while the camcorder takes care of all the details. The system recognizes 38 shooting situations based on numerous factors, and then automatically chooses the optimal settings for the situation.
    Baby Mode
    The camcorder features Canon's Baby Mode - a complete solution for capturing, tracking, organizing and sharing every moment of your baby's development. A custom control button on the shooting screen activates the mode, and optimal settings for the shooting conditions, including Intelligent IS and more, are automatically selected. Videos shot in Baby Mode are automatically saved into a dedicated Baby Album so they won't get lost among your other videos. You can view the Baby Album chronologically as well.

    When shooting in Baby Mode, the camcorder's Pre-Record (Pre REC) function is always on. This places the camcorder in a stand-by "pre-roll" mode, where it continuously records three seconds of video to memory before you even press the record button. When you start recording, the additional video is recorded too, so you won't miss your baby's "first" moments.

    Touch Decoration in Baby Mode includes stamps to mark each video with your baby's current height and weight. And with a single registration of the baby's birth date, the camcorder will automatically calculate the number of days old and stamp videos accordingly, creating an exact diary of developmental milestones for years to come. The camcorder's other Baby Mode Touch Decoration options allow you to add your own drawings, captions, animations and more. All options can be appended to previously shot video as well.

    Cinema-Look Filters
    This feature offers a choice of seven varied built-in adjustable filters, which give the look of a variety of cinematic styles by compensating for the color, gamma and other aspects of the image's quality. The looks can be previewed in the LCD monitor while shooting, and also applied post-capture for additional convenience and versatility. Choose from Cinema Standard, Old Movies, Vivid, Cool, Nostalgic, Dramatic Black & White or Sepia. For even greater control, the brightness of each filter can be set to low, medium or high. When Cinema Standard is selected, color depth, softening and contrast can also be adjusted.
    Genuine Canon Face Detection
    The same high quality Face Detection technology used in Canon digital cameras is available in Canon HD camcorders. Up to 35 faces can be tracked automatically, ensuring sharp focus and accurate exposure. Of the faces tracked, nine detection frames can be displayed at one time. The system will even recognize faces turned downwards or sideways. In addition, a specific face may be selected as the main subject for continuous tracking. This feature also helps when you're searching for clips that feature a specific subject's face. In search and playback, use of the Face Index will display those frames with the chosen face as a thumbnail in each shot in which it appears. Your selected face can also be linked as a timeline to further identify footage containing your subject.
    Video SnapShot
    Video Snapshot allows you to capture the highlights of a once-in-a-lifetime trip or a family milestone with the same ease as taking photos. Simply record a series of short video clips - or select your favorite clips while in Playback Mode - and blend in your favorite background music to create an exciting movie that will grab everyone's attention. Video Snapshot allows selectable recording times of two, four or eight seconds. Additionally, audio from an external source such as an MP3 player can be played along with your Snapshot movie. Plus, playback can be controlled from that source.
    24p Cinema & 30p Progressive Shooting Modes
    The camcorder offers a 24p Cinema mode that gives your video a film-like feel, making it look as if it were shot at the same frame rate as movie film. It does this by capturing at a frame rate of 24p and recording it in a 60i wrapper. The camcorder also gives you the option of recording in 30p Progressive mode, which is great for clips you intend to post online.

    Canon HFR600 reviews

    VIXIA HF R600 Full HD Camcorder (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 67.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice camera for the price. Just grab and go! Small enough to carry easily. It'll remind you to open the lens cover, which will be obvious when you don't see anything on the screen, but it's good to know your screen is black for that reason and not because the screen failed. Quick to start up. Easy to navigate the menus. Easy to operate in my hand, though it feels a little small, but secure. The screen is terrible in bright sunlight. The zoom is a little slow for my liking, but it's smooth. Image stabilization pretty good. Would recommend an external mic if in the breeze/wind. Very noisy recording otherwise. Really nice camcorder for the price. It would make a good choice for a starter camcorder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Ameturs, Entusiasts and Professionals This camera is excellent for all kinds of videographers because it is reliable, simple and easy to use. It is great for professionals because it can be used as a B-Cam with other canon camcorders and is great for filming events such as concerts, weddings and other events. I use this camera with a Canon-G30, Zoom H6, GoPro Hero 4 and a Sony Action Camera HD. This camera however, the R600 will be a stationary camera that I will be switching with my G30 and other cameras using a muliticamera edit. The only downside that I would say that this camcorder is that it does not offer good-low light, but if you are just filming plays and concerts with adequate lighting, you should be absolutely ok.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Unit I'm using this to film fishing segments for my You Tube channel and business Facebook page. Also filming insert segments for my TV show. It works well, but wish it had a remote since I have to be in front of the camera, and when catching a fish it can be a problem, with a lot of post editing. I did notice that my editing program has a problem with the file in not editing as quickly unless it was filmed in MP4. I'm still trying different settings, so I can't completely give it a fair review on that end of things with quality, etc. As for overall operation, it is fairly simple, and works great with my wireless microphone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for a Beginner I say good for a beginner because I AM a beginner. Been doing still photography for over 40 years, and finally venturing into the realm of video. My criteria was: price, removable storage (SD card,) external mic input and headphone output, and the ability to do time-lapse. The Vixia R600 fits the bill perfectly. I am using it for video blogging/tutorials, travel, and recording family events. Thus far, it fits the bill perfectly. Limitations? Of course. Its an entry level camcorder. But if you want something you can just pick up and use, this camera is a great choice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Camera for Simple Productions I teach a high school television program. I needed a simple, sturdy camera for my first-year students to learn about camera functions and shot framing on. The HF R600 fit the bill. At this great price, we got ten cameras and my kids are enjoying the freedom and learning a lot too. Not to mention, if one of them breaks I don't break the bank and my program isn't crippled. Great product as always by, Canon!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive solution for wide-angle Bought this camera at the suggestion of one of the B&H online chat sales associates. I told him I needed a video camera with a wide angle view for the purpose of streaming athletic events, such as basketball, football, volleyball, etc, but wanted to stay under a $500 budget. I looked initially at the Go-Pros and other action cams, but disliked the extreme fish-eye distortion at the edges. This was the least expensive camera we could find capable of shooting at 60fps, along with the ability to mount a wide-angle lens on the front. Streamed several baseball games with this camera and a Pearstone 0.7 wide-angle lens (under $100) and it's worked quite well. You are able to see the entire field, from first to third along with some of the foul lines, from a static mounting point behind the chain-link backstop. Also tested it briefly on our basketball court. I can't quite get the entire court from the side from about 20 yards, but it's close. It does get the entire volleyball court, however. I think a 0.5 lens would work for basketball. The included camera features are nice - touch-screen display, fairly intuitive navigation on the menus, ability to manually adjust the white balance, a night-shooting mode, a sports/action shooting mode. It also boasts a surprisingly good still-shot picture taking ability that can be done without interrupting the recording. All-in-all, the camera is exactly what I need. The only additional feature I would have liked would be wifi, but the next model up does have that ability, I believe, for at an increased cost. Might look at such an upgrade for a second camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! This camera is a basic consumer camera, but it has an external microphone input and headset jack that doubles for A/V out. We always use external mics. for any interviews. We use it for community projects and edit the AVCHD files on Final Cut X. It is easy to carry, great optical stabilizer for hand held shooting. Does the job we purchased it for. No issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and easy to use, does the job This little camcorder is very easy to use. It looks very simple with very few buttons but it has what you need to start and stop the recording, zoom in and out and check the last videos recorded. The rest is on the touchscreen, which is OK but not awesome. The image quality is completely satisfactory. I use it indoors with proper lighting to conduct mini-interviews. For that the 3.5 mm input for the microphone is very useful and thanks to the 3.5 mm output it is possible to monitor the sound while recording the video. Overall, it's simple and does the job for me.
