Cannon Vixia 800 a great starter camcorder for the price. Point and shoot auto focus works great. The only trade off is that everything is on the flip screen menu and not on the body of the camera.
This is a feature of DSLR and Professional camcorders that have a steeper learning curve.
I would suggest to beginners is to start with the Vixia 800. Brilliant sharp images outside, but you might want to have a ring light if you are shooting indoors and it is dim. On the 800 memory card is needed. On the 80, 82 the memory is in the camera and there are slots for SD cards.
