Hey! You should know that Canon has released a newer version of this product: the Canon VIXIA HF R60.

Sitting pretty in the middle of Canon's 2014 HF line, the HF R50 offers 8 GB of built-in memory and wi-fi, along with the same sensor/lens/processor combo as the HF R500 and HF 52. The memory and battery allows for up to three hours of continuous footage (at the lowest video quality), a nice feature for a consumer camera at this price. Wi-Fi allows for remote uploads. The HF R50 offers similar video quality with the same 1/4.85” sensor f1.8-4.5 lens and fast processor as the HF R500 and HF R52, with the added feature of wi-fi and built-in memory over the 500 but not as much storage as the R52.
