Why Has it Scored 71?

It has great expert reviews but ok user reviews with an average overall rating of 79%, based on 15 reviews.
This camcorder is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer camcorders with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering. View the latest camcorders 2018.
This Canon camcorder has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Bigger than average total megapixels
Larger than average optical sensor size
Record 4k footage at up to 305mbps/4:2:2/8 bit with canon's XF-AVC h.264 codec
12MP stills or 8.29mp 4k movie grabs
Canon log and wide DR gamma
Records 4k internally to a cfast 2.0 card
Up to ISO 20,000; plus built-in ND filter
10x zoom with optical image stabilizer

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each camcorder by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.
