What we think about it
No matter Canon LEGRIA HF R106 came out on the market as a high end HD device with a price tag reaching $500 and more but we think this camcorder is quite a fail and that is the real reason its sales were slow and price dropped very quickly.

Now when costing as low as $200 Canon LEGRIA HF R106 could be considered a bargain for some but we would recommend you to check the rest of Canon's camcorder range before you purchase this one.
