Canon HD Video lens
A high-quality, Canon HD Video lens features a 6-Blade iris diaphragm for soft background blurring and a smooth, 10x optical zoom.

Shake-free movies
The LEGRIA HF M41 uses two systems of image stabilisation- Dynamic Optical Image Stabiliser to reduce shake while walking and Powered Image Stabiliser to delivers steady telephoto shots.

Superb audio
A high-sensitivity, built-in zoom microphone captures quieter sounds more clearly. An audio jack lets you add an external mic and the 2 sound channels can be mixed in the camcorder.

Image sensor
Total megapixels *
A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 × 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 × 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).
2.37 MP
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
CMOS
Optical sensor size
Optical sensors are electronic detectors that convert light, or a change in light, into an electronic signal. They are used in many industrial and consumer applications e.g. lamps that turn on automatically in response to darkness. Optical sensors come in many sizes.
25.4 / 3 mm (1 / 3")
Effective megapixels (movie)
2.07 MP
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
10x
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
40x
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Yes
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
6.1 - 61 mm

White balance
White balance
Technique in photography and image processing, which involves a global adjustment of the intensities of the colors (typically red, green, and blue primary colors). An important goal of this adjustment is to render specific colors – particularly neutral colors including white – correctly.
Cloudy, Daylight, Fluorescent, Shade
Flash
Built-in flash *
The product has an internal flash. A flash produces a brief very bright light, used for taking photographs in poor light.
No

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. T...
Bottom line 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...

Panasonic has ruled the high-end camcorder sector for some time now, and its recent HDC-SD90 and HDC-TM900 models recently reinforced that position. Canon is aiming to topple Panasonic from its perch atop the PC Pro A List with the Legria HF M41. It's on...

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 inp...

Like a number of camcorders in this price range the Legria HFM41 has a size and weight befitting its plethora of features and quality output. It is not massive at 74mm x 71mm x 137mm (W/H/D), but it is certainly not one that would slip easily into a po...
Good Using this camera, you feel like a budding Spielberg. The quality of build and feature set is extraordinary and everything works really well. The optical image stabilisation is the best we have seen from any of our recent camera reviews – video feels like it is being filmed on a tripod rather then in hand.The menu system is extensive and easily laid out, and through the touchscreen everything is...
Bad The issues we have found with the Canon Legria HFM41 are minimal, however this is not a perfect camera. Canon have included a viewfinder on the back, which emulates a feature found on higher level pro camcorders. Sadly this viewfinder hosts a tiny low quality LCD screen that makes usage near impossible. The battery bay is sized for a large battery, but the included one only fills half the space...
Bottom line 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 hom...
