  • Summary: 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 home movies, then the Legria HFM41 is for you.

  • Summary: Commendable performance and plenty of storage space make the Canon Legria HF M41 camcorder one to consider for advanced users. But competition is tough at this price point and there could be more attractive options available, depending on your requirements.
  • Cons: Limited photo capabilities; viewfinder is awkward to use; autofocus seems slow to adapt in some situations.

Canon Legria HF M41 review

Pocket Lint
8 June 2011
  • Excerpt: 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 over its siblings is its larger 32GB memory, along with a viewfinder and an external microphone input.
  • Pros: Good quality video, comfortable to hold, easy to use, creative features
  • Cons: Pricey, viewfinder too small to be useful, slightly bulky design

Canon VIXIA HF M4

CNET
3 May 2011
  • Summary: A fine follow-up to last year's M3xx series, the Canon Vixia M4xx series should please most home-movie-oriented videographers despite its relatively high price. If you don't need the EVF, the M400 is your best buy, but if you'll be shooting a lot in sunlight, it's worth it to step up to the M41.
  • Pros: With a nice set of features for home-movie-type shooters and pleasing video quality, the Canon Vixia HF M400 series has lots to like.
  • Cons: A small, coarse LCD that's hard to view in direct sunlight and touch-screen-impaired menu system hamper an otherwise solid design.

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

  • Conclusion: Ironischerweise sind die neuen Camcorder endlich wieder so scharf wie die Vor-Vorgänger-Generation. Das gute Lowlight-Verhalten sowie die für viele Filmer schon ausreichenden manuellen Funktionen machen die HF M-Serie sicherlich für preissensible Anwender interessant. Allerdings muss man dabei weiterhin mit wenig Weitwinkel, niedrig auflösendem Display und fehlenden Funktionen wie Zebra oder Histogramm sowie den Programmautomatiken leben.
  • Pros: Manuelle Bildcharakteristik möglich, gute Low-Light-Eigenschaften
  • Cons: Kein Zebra, (zu) wenig externe Bedienelemente

  • Conclusion: La Canon LEGRIA HF M41 è una videocamera compatta dalle prestazioni performanti ad un prezzo abbastanza acccessibile. Le caratteristiche tecniche sono molto buone, per non dire ottime, e considerando la possibilità di espansione della stessa attraverso la minislitta avanzata, possiamo affermare tranquillamente che è un ottimo investimento.
  • Pros: Sensore HD CMOS Pro Canon ; Stabilizzazione ottica dell'immagine ; LCD touch-screen da 7,5 cm; Funzioni cinematografiche creative ; Dimensioni; Obiettivo video HD 10x
  • Cons: Pacco Batteria
