Canon LEGRIA HFM306

 

The LEGRIA HFM306 is HD capable, packs a 2.7-inch touch-screen LCD and weighs just 320g. Is this the HD camcorder for you?

The Canon offers quality captures and ease-of-use but it needs a better standard battery to shine.

Canon Legria HF M306 review

 

Canon's vast AVCHD camcorder range can be reduced to three models, with each one available in different memory configurations. The HF M306 is a mid-range video camera and with no built-in memory and just a SDHC slot for storage, is the cheapest of the...

Superb image quality, elegant controls and lots of useful shooting options, but sound quality is disappointing and the price is too high.

A very good item

 

I was very pleased with the camcorder and it was waiting for me the next day at your Colchester store. It was also a very pleasent surprise to find the cost was less than the advertised price.
