The HF R30 is part of Canon’s entry-level line of Vixia camcorders, and, since it’s a budget model, it does have its fair share of problems. Video performance is limited when shooting in less-than-ideal lighting situations, battery life is abysmal, and the menu interface is far more confusing than it should be. But the Canon HF R30 ($399 MSRP) is cheap, and compared to other models in its price range, it actually scored well in our tests.
