The HF R11 is a slight upgrade on the very similar R10 model, with the difference being the internal storage (read our hands-on review of the HF-R10). The R11 offers 32GB of internal storage, along with SD memory card capability. Relay Recording will switch from one to the other if your memory runs out. This camcorder gives you high definition video along with tons of useful features like Dynamic Image Stabilization, Quick Start, Smart Auto modes, and more. Just another consumer-friendly HD option to consider.
