Canon Vixia HF M40

 

Quality Full HD video ; 16GB onboard flash ; Dual SDXC card slots ; Fast focusing 10x optical zoom

Canon Vixia HF M40 review

 

Sometimes less is more. Take, for example, the Canon Vixia HF M40 camcorder. The camera tweaks some features found in Canon's 2010 M-series camcorders, but the most significant change is a slightly larger image sensor with substantially fewer pixels....

Dedicated HD camcorders like the HF M40 are getting squeezed between the increasingly acceptable video capabilities of smartphones and the fussy-but-pretty video performance of DSLRs. But today there's still a good-sized niche for moderately priced HD...
