Canon LEGRIA HF M46 High Definition Camcorder


Another gem from Canon. I was originally looking for the HG10 that my father has, but obviously this has been upgraded several times over now. Anyway I plumped for the HF M46 as it seemed to do all the same things. As usual the lense and sensor are top...

Easy to use, excellent low light recording, movie quality for the home ueser

Slightly small and not quite as weighty as i'd like
