Canon LEGRIA HF R205 Camcorder Review
Canon is a renowned brand in the imaging world from years which has been delivering remarkable camcorders to the world of video fanatics. One such notable camcorder is Canon LEGRIA HF 205. If a still image is worth thousand words, bring home Canon LEGRIA HF 205 Camcorder to capture a video that says a million.
The HD Camcorder from Canon is a blend of affordability and flexibility which is crafted in conventional handy style to deliver a user with maximum portability. The camcorder is a slim-stylish camcorder which can fit in your palm very comfortably and doesn’t bother you with its super light-weight of just 270gms.
While the lightness doesn’t lead to suffer from any fatigue it also takes away the stability of the video output. It is perfectly designed for right handed people in a way that it becomes a big no-no for a left handed.
The camcorder comes with built in ports for connecting AV/headphone out, component-out and power charger; all of them are protected with a flap on them. The camcorder is integrated with supporting SD Card slot rather than what it used to be in traditional camcorders in the form of DV Tape, hard disk or a DVD.
The Canon Camcorder is a fast rebooting device which takes just few seconds to deliver performance after powering it on. The camcorder comes with low resolution CMOS sensor of 1 / 4.85 inch in 2.07 Megapixels lens which affects the image quality while shooting distant objects.
The Camcorder offers video capturing of 1920 x 1080 pixels capture in MXP and FXP modes while can deliver 1440 x 1080 pixels video in LP, SP and XP+ capture modes.
The camcorder offers high resolution shooting in bright day situations but as you shoot in dark, the images and videos come with high noise. Thankfully there’s an automatic backlight correction feature to assists in such situation.
The zoom offered by the camcorder is noiseless and very smooth. The camcorder offers 18x optical zoom which allows easy coverage of distant objects. Don’t go on its 360x digital zoom as it will highly disappoint you as you’ll see a heavy fall in the image quality as well as in the focusing.
Canon LEGRIA HF 205 camcorder doesn’t offer Optical Image Stabilization; it comes with Electronic Stabilization feature. Electronic Stabilization works but it cannot meet at par with what Optical I.S offers. You can’t expect crispier image quality in high zoom or during handheld shooting in moving maneuvers.
The camcorder is equipped with 3 inch widescreen touch panel which allows you to access and reviews your video recordings at any time. The LCD Screen also lets you add customization to your videos and images using stylus or finger touch mode through its Touch Decoration feature for adding peppy things like animation effects or any work of art.
Once you record few clips of a video, with Video Snapshot feature you can enjoy making some fruitful editing to your captures. You can add a music track to your music video creation through pre-installed songs in the camcorder or you can add your favorite songs using ImageMixer3 Software.
