Gadgets Review: HF R36 Camcorder from Canon

WIRELESS WONDER CAM. The new HF R36 camcorder from Canon has all the technical specs any budding amateur filmmakers would need — a 1/4.85in CMOS sensor, 32x optical zoom, a 3-inch color touchscreen monitor and 8GBs of internal storage.

But one of the features that really sets the HF R36 apart from the pack are its wi-fi capabilities, which not only let you transfer files to and from your computer without a USB cable, they also let you stream video directly to DLNAenabled TVs and gaming consoles.

The HF R36 also comes with a Story Creator feature that lets you easily package your footage using predesigned patterns and even add Instagramlike filters to your clips.
