Canon VIXIA HF M41


$799.99 Released January, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Flash memory storage, no need to worry about vibrations affecting a hard drive based recorder or a disc based recorder. Good video performance in low light conditions thanks to the large image sensor. Dual SC card slots, large removable storage expansion at an affordable price (2x 16GB cards).

The Cons:Vignetting issues at high zoom levels, causes video quality degradation. (Resistive) Touchscreen is not responsive, can be frustrating to go through the menu settings. LCD display is also difficult to see in direct sunlight, no so good for out door use.

The Canon VIXIA HF M41is a digital high definition camcorder that comes with enough memory for recording up to 12 hours of full high definition video footage. There are also dual SDXC slots and other ports (USB) for expanding beyond the camera’s integrated limitations.

As an upgrade from the M40, the HF M41 offers double the memory (32GB). It otherwise maintains the same core features and components. In particular, it is designed for capturing full definition video and still images. The signature component to the HF M41 is a Touch and Track display in which users can just select the subject on the screen with their finger, and the camcorder will automatically optimize the settings for maximum sharpness and correct exposure. Mind you, users can manually adjust these settings if they so desire.
