1 review for Canon Legria HF R78

  1. Lucy Cox

    If you wonder which is better Panasonic HC-V770 Canon Legria HF R78 here is my opinion as the user of both camcorders. In my humble opinion the HC-V770 is more comfortable to handle since I don’t often carry a tripod and can easily hold it on my neck and still maintain a clear view of the landscape in front of me when in use at night. I feel I am better positioned to view objects such as stars and galaxies that I can’t see with the Canon legria. I think Canon is a bit more versatile with its cameras and if the HC-V770 could give you some more versatility I may be inclined to pick it over the Canon legria for sure. The Canon camcorders can be found here and the HC-V770 also here in this shop.
