Editor's Review

Canon's 2013 $500 mainstream model is easy to use, yet includes features like built-in wi-fi and 32 GB of built-in memory. A nice 53x zoom lens gets up close to the action, and the optical image stabilization should leave footage sharp. The processor on the HF R42 is quick and responsive, and should mean improved low light images over Canon's previous models. Low light footage should be right around average for the price point. With 1080/60p footage in 35 Mbps (MP4) or 28 Mbps (AVCHD), the video captured by the HF42 is smooth. Overall, a decent pick for the price.
