      Hello everyone.  I'm glad I finally found a resource for all things video.  I wonder if anyone can tell me if the Canon Vixia HF R20 is a good starter camcorder.  I want one that gives me some advanced features also because I would like to get into INDIE Filmmaking at some point.  I understand that this particular camera does have a MOVIE MODE.  Is this a good camera to start with or should I be looking up the quality line a bit.  I don't want to go over $700 if possible (at least not just yet).  Thanks.

      Hi bbtgalleryvid60, 



      The Canon Vixia HF would be a good starter camcorder for a few reasons. First of all the price is good for what features it provides. It's a fullHD 1080p camcorder. It has a microphone port for an external mic and 2 SD card slots. It has 20x optical zoom, image stabilization and both auto and manual focus. 
      This camcorder should work well for your future plans. Good luck
