Review: Canon Vixia HF M32


The Canon Vixia HF M32 is very good camcorder that's a pleasure to use, but choosing it depends on whether you need a lot of on-board memory.

The camera’s sharp 15x optical-zoom lens and small ¼-inch CMOS imaging sensor gather imagery that gets recorded as 1080-line, 60fps interlaced HD video. The HF M32 lacks true progressive recording, but provides a pulldown mode to record...

Canon Vixia HF M32


This Canon camcorder has powerful dual shot capabilities.

This HDV camcorder has a durable exterior body

The images on this device are not as clear and crisp as similar devices

This Canon HDV camcorder is built to be durable, strong and comes with outstanding features. Using the Canon Vixia HF M32 will provide you with high image quality, just not the best we have seen available on the market. If strong dual shot capabilities...

Canon Legria HF M32 - Pocket-lint


Canon's latest addition to its Legria HF M series of camcorders is the compact, lightweight M32. A combination of extended storage, ease of use and Full

Compact styling, HD video quality, optical zoom, AF, metering and exposure control, handling

Built-in mic suffers sound distortion in windy conditions, screen can be difficult to see in brighter conditions and the touch sensitivity is not as sensitive as it could be, screen controls not as intuitive as they could be

The Canon Legria HF M32 is actually an upgrade of the preceding Legria M31 model, but it stills packs a good video punch. The ease of use is certainly exactly that - we was able to pick up the M32 and start shooting without referring to a manual....

Canon Legria HF M32 review


In these days of pocket-sized camcorders with giant screens and funny attachments, Canon's Legria models can look a little old fashioned, but while the looks may be old school, the performance is consistently cutting edge.  Every Legria we've been...

Canon's latest Legria is yet another excellent addition to the range

The ability to perform brilliantly both when you expect it to and when you don't make the M32 stand out from the crowd

Canon LEGRIA HF M32 Full HD Camcorder review.


Canon's latest addition to its LEGRIA HF M camcorders series is the compact, lightweight M32. It combines extended storage, ease of use and Full HD shooting with improved creative options, so it looks a tempting treat indeed. But is it? Doug Harman...

HD video quality, Optical zoom lens, AF, Metering and exposure control, Handling, Compact styling

Screen difficult to use in bright conditions, Touch sensitivity is not very sensitive, Built-in mic sound distortion when windy, Screen controls not as intuitive as they could be

Key to this camera’s success however, will be its compact size and ease of use. I carried it around in my trouser pocket (insert smutty innuendo here, if you must) so it certainly is portable. The quality of my footage is excellent with the only...
