Summary: The Canon Legria HV40 must surely be the HDV format’s last hurrah in the consumer sector -- and what a send-off it is! If you’re keen to stick with MiniDV, you won’t find a better camcorder than this.
Pros: Superb 1080i video quality, good low-light performer, plenty of advanced features and controls
Cons: Slightly fiddly control scheme, limitations of MiniDV
