Canon Vixia HF R72 Review

 

The Canon Vixia HF-R72 is a reliable camcorder that does well to balance image quality, usability and price. While it's a competitive choice for anyone, this camera is particularly suited to those who are more concerned with simplicity and ease of use....

The camcorder has 32GB of built-in storage.

There is no built-in viewfinder.

Although its image quality is only average for the cameras we tested, the Canon Vixia HF-R72 remains a fantastic camcorder for those seeking something simple, versatile and effective.
