5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Companion Items
Having just purchased a Canon VIXIA HF M40 Camcorder, the Essential Accessory Kit proved to be just that. The two tripods provide options when setting up a stationary recording position. The hard-shell case is just large enough for the camera so any extra batteries or memory cards need to be stored separately, but it worked well for me. We took the camera on vacation...

1.0 out of 5 stars Bait and switch. Case is different and smaller.
Bait and switch. I knew I was getting a cheap tripod, but at least the case looked good. Just the right size for what I needed so I felt ok about getting a less than stellar tripod since the case alone, based on the pic, and the cleaning accessories would be worth the cost. Unfortunately, the pictured case is not included. Instead of the HC7 case that is pictured, you get...

Having just purchased a Canon VIXIA HF M40 Camcorder, the Essential Accessory Kit proved to be just that. The two tripods provide options when setting up a stationary recording position. The hard-shell case is just large enough for the camera so any extra batteries or memory cards need to be stored separately, but it worked well for me. We took the camera on vacation and the case made it very easy to carry while strapped to my belt without being too bulky and kept it from being constantly in the way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bait and switch. Case is different and smaller., November 4, 2014

Just the right size for what I needed so I felt ok about getting a less than stellar tripod since the case alone, based on the pic, and the cleaning accessories would be worth the cost. Unfortunately, the pictured case is not included. Instead of the HC7 case that is pictured, you get the HSC-425 which is smaller in every dimension and doesn't hold the accessories as pictured. I'll never buy from ButterflyPhoto again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, April 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Essential Accessory Kit For Canon VIXIA HF R52, HF R50, HF R500, HF R600, HF G10, HF R60, HF R62, HF M52, HF M50, HF M500, HF R32, HF R30, HF R300, Canon Vixia Mini Includes 50 Tripod + Compact Hard Shell Case + 7 Flexible Tripod + More (Electronics)
The small stand is decent and pretty much what I expected. The large tripod however was extremely poor quality, (as if literally fell apart as soon as I attempted to unfold it. Judging by the obviously inferior plastic used in construction I'd say that this is probably a fault that will be found in all models, not just mine. Do yourself a favor and spend a few extra $$ for a more reliable version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic supplies but not the same as pictured., May 27, 2014
This review is from: Essential Accessory Kit For Canon VIXIA HF R52, HF R50, HF R500, HF R600, HF G10, HF R60, HF R62, HF M52, HF M50, HF M500, HF R32, HF R30, HF R300, Canon Vixia Mini Includes 50 Tripod + Compact Hard Shell Case + 7 Flexible Tripod + More (Electronics)
The tripod is definitely smaller than what I expected it to be and a bit on the flimsy side. The bag I received is not a hard shell bag, but a soft Zeikos camera bag. The bag is ok and will serve it's purpose. The other essentials are just basic camera supplies. The 7 spider tripod is not the same as pictured, I received a tiny 4" flexible tripod that basically is just a small mount for the camera. It isn't big enough to wrap around anything (like it is shown in the photo).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so essential, October 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Essential Accessory Kit For Canon VIXIA HF R52, HF R50, HF R500, HF R600, HF G10, HF R60, HF R62, HF M52, HF M50, HF M500, HF R32, HF R30, HF R300, Canon Vixia Mini Includes 50 Tripod + Compact Hard Shell Case + 7 Flexible Tripod + More (Electronics)
As a kid with a new toy, I looked forward to implement my video camera. But, most of the "essential" stuff weren't even needed.
They are good things. Not complaining, but my advice is: use your camera first, and then think what do you really need. Nothing is essential in this kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Package, April 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Essential Accessory Kit For Canon VIXIA HF R52, HF R50, HF R500, HF R600, HF G10, HF R60, HF R62, HF M52, HF M50, HF M500, HF R32, HF R30, HF R300, Canon Vixia Mini Includes 50 Tripod + Compact Hard Shell Case + 7 Flexible Tripod + More (Electronics)
Very satisfied with the kit. We got it for the two different tripods that came with it. It wasn't expensive so we weren't sure what exactly we were getting. I quality of the large tripod is lacking, but since we set it up to never move it it works perfectly. I'd recommend it.
