Canon Legria HF M41 - Pocket-lint

 

The Canon LEGRIA HF M41 makes up one third of the brand's M-Series camcorder lineup, along with the cheaper HF M46 and the HF M406. What the HF M41 has

Good quality video, comfortable to hold, easy to use, creative features

Pricey, viewfinder too small to be useful, slightly bulky design

The Canon Legria HF M41 is an excellent camcorder and offers plenty of compelling features such as the cinema filters and the external microphone port. It's comfortable to use and captures great quality HD footage while also allowing for some...

Canon Legria HF M41 Review

 

The Canon Legria HF M41 has the same HD CMOS PRO sensor as the other higher end Canon camcorders. It is for those people who want the same level of performance but at the same time do not want to deal with endless controls.

It is true that the Canon Legria HF M41 is not the best camcorder around and yet it doesn’t fail to woo the masses. The device is known for its performance rather than its features and this has helped it make a name for itself in this short span of...

Canon Legria HF M41

 

Canon aims to challenge Panasonic's position as camcorder top dog with its new M series of camcorders

An excellent camcorder at a reasonable price, but we prefer the greater flexibility of the slightly cheaper Panasonic HDC-SD90

Canon Legria HFM41

 

Like a number of camcorders in this price range the Legria HFM41 has a size and weight befitting its plethora of features and quality output. It is not massive at 74mm x 71mm x 137mm (W/H/D), but it is certainly not one that would slip easily into a...

At a shade under £800, this camera is not to be purchased on a whim, however the multitude of features and manual control settings really set this camcorder apart from the competition. If you are a budding filmmaker or want something more from your...

Wow

 

It could take some time for some to learn ~ Not years but maybe a good month to understand what this bad boy can do and then master it ~ For other like myself who has been around camcorders most my life it shouldn't take long to be up and running with...

It's great as it is but getting it on the pre Black Friday deal for 399.00 was fantastic ~ You can do most anything in atuo mode and it will be great 90% of the time ~ When you go to manual mode it were the magic starts to come to life

The one con I have read most about this camcorder is battery life ~ I'm getting around 2 hrs with mine so I dont see how that can be con ~ I'm not saying a 6 hr. battery wouldn't be nice ~ But 2 hrs is far from the worse also

Canon HF-M41

 

picture quality very good, image stabilisation very good. It's too early yet to say much about all the things it can do and I am looking forward to working my way through them all

Previously had much bigger camcorders. Found the zoom control a bit too far back for my finger to line up on it. Start/stop did not line up so well with my thumb. Both these cause movement of the camera when operating. View finder is fixed in position...

Quality filming in low light and with stage lighting, perfect for what I needed, filming the kids in stage productions

Quite heavy. Zoom not as good as on previous camcorder
