Summary: First off i have to say I love this camera. I have the caonon vixia hf r500 the new series of cameras and thought that was great but this older model is awesome. Picture quality and features are off the chain.
Summary: Easy to use, light, and compact. Great 1080 HD quality. Would recommend this camera to anyone. The feature that allows you to change the setting to Vivid is almost like an instagram filter which I thought was a really cool feature.
Summary: This is a great camera, no doubt about it. I think this is the best entry level camera for everyone that wants to get into the video world. Pros -The screen is amazing -The quality is great Cons -No manual focus -AVCHD is a pain.
Top quality without paying top $ --- Nice HD camcorder from Canon

Summary: This is a nice camera even if it is a version older because of the HD CMOS Image Pro sensor inside (these chips are found in Canon's expensive line like the XA, Gxx series). Low light shots are nice and not too grainy. Lightweight too.
Summary: Canon is name you trust for quality images and video. The Vixia HF M40 is no exception. It records HD 1080i Video internally without moving tape or parts that can wear out or break. It is so light-weight and compact carrying it with you is a breeze.
