Stacey, South Africa. 14 September 2016

Do you make the move to upgrade? I went from a 2012 Sony to this... Am I disappointed? NOT AT ALL. The opposite. It's a magnificent piece of kit.
Who am I? a regular family man wanting to capture the moments in life to share with my Great Grandchildren.

Feels sturdy in the hand, not a piece of plastic. Even the grip feels luxurious.
Although intimidated after reading reviews about setting up the wi-fi controller and uploader app, DON'T BELIEVE anyone. It took me a minute or two and I could control the camera from my Galaxy S6 and my iPad Mini 2. The camera has the firmware built in which means you don't need to download apps to make it work on Android or IOS.
Filming in slow motion or with variable speed zooms are a piece of cake with really well laid out menus on the touch screen. Great for those shots of your kids wanting to see their form when playing sports.
I filmed a night match of cricket under lights and set up the camera ready to zoom in and out with the action. FANTASTIC. What ease... No need to run up and down. I could score the match on the iPad, check the camera viewer on my phone and start the recording at my leisure as well as chat to the Dads about the poor umpiring decision. With the wireless remote included, the camera doesn't get bumped trying to do these things.Let's not talk about the quality of the Zoom!?!? AMAZING. From over 60 metres away, in low light, in motion, I could read the brand of trainers the kids were wearing on the pitch.
I'm going to set this up at the back of the school hall for my daughters concert. Raise the tripod to it's huge 2.5 metre level and control the whole zoom function from the comfort of my seat. I'm not in anybodies way and will get the best shot in the house.
The microphones are really sensitive and pick up all the gossip that you missed while involved with filming. But there's an intuitive function that eliminates wind or high traffic background noise, genius from Canon.
There's a track function. If you look on the viewfinder and while recording, touch a spot (say a red car) it'll make sure that the focus aspects will track that red car as you hold the camera and film. INCREDIBLE. It's as simple as just tapping the point you want to focus on. EASY.
I haven't even started on the manual, professional settings. But after the Auto version makes life so easy, you want to take this Bad Boy onto the open water and GO BIG.
TAKE the pain. Make the purchase. Get insurance. Filming then becomes a pleasure and an adventure with this Canon Legria HF G40
