Just bought my first ever camcorder . Been wanting one for several years but never got around to it . Anyway this past weekend i purchased Canons VIXIA HF R300 . Since i'm new to camcorder i wanted a good one for HD TV but didn't want to jump off the highend until i have some time under my belt . For me it will be hobby and collecting movies of family gatherings vacations , hobby of wildlife imaging . Got alot to learn but from what i have learned so far of the camera i like it well !
