Image sensor
Total megapixels *
A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 × 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 × 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).

The Canon LEGRIA HF R26 is a budget full HD camcorder. It has a 3.28 megapixel CMOS sensor, 20x optical zoom, AVCHD recording, 8GB of flash memory and a 3-inch LCD screen to preview videos. It also offers twin memory card slots that can house up to 64G...
Good Considering the Canon LEGRIA HF 26 records in full HD (1080p) its price of around £280 isn’t so bad at all. While the LEGRIA HF R26 is verging on the budget side of good camcorders, it still has plenty about it to be the best of the rest. There’s the bog-standard HDMI out port - useful for watching your HD films on your TV set, and the usual USB port o share media with a computer or laptop, but o...
Bad The Canon LEGRIA HF R26 has a nice little set of features, but compared to pricier models, it’s still lacking. For the most part the Canon LEGRIA HF R26 performs well, but in scenes of low light performance can be erratic, lending unwanted hues to footage. There is also little in the way of bundled accessories. Filmmakers will also note the lack of microphone port.
Bottom line The Canon LEGRIA HF R26 is a great budget full HD camcorder that does all the basics very well, but before investing be sure to look around for a bargain. Canon LEGRIA HF R26 is tagged with Canon, LEGRIA HF R26, camcorder, full HD and 10280p. Select a...

Bottom line The Canon LEGRIA HF R26 is a bit more expensive than our favourite budget model, the JVC Everio GZ-HM445. But it also has built-in memory and a slightly easier range of manual settings to access. So whilst this isn't the best value camcorder on the market...
