"I needed a second camera and wanted to save money. I wish I had got another HFM41. There's nothing really wrong with the HFR406 but I miss the extra features such as viewfinder, external microphone. It's smaller and lighter which I find harder to hold steady and tilt the picture when operating the zoom. Nearly 6 hours to charge the battery! A different battery to the HFM41 so new spares and fast charger to get. If you are just buying a camcorder for ordinary use, don't be put off by above."
Yes, I recommend this product.

"This is a good video camera for all news reporters. It is inconspicuous, the recorded sound quality is outstanding.
But, it is not made to link with wifi!
You might need a good home movie prepossesor to get the best out of the footage, for home movie use.
"

"Product is fine well made if some what small does what it says on the tin. keep in mind that the CD only down loads in Adobe reader they don't tell you this in the booklet that comes with camcorder only the down load. so if you have any trouble go to cannon web site first. it is rather hard work trying to find out how to down load your video after you have taken it, instructions rather poor on that subject. needs more info. worth the money though good sound, good vids very clear."
Yes, I recommend this product.
