Canon VIXIA HF M-Series HD Camcorders, Wi-Fi Ready!

Canon‘s new HF M-series was showcased at CES in Vegas last month. The new series includes HF M52, M50, and M500 which designed as a compact HD camcorder with built-in flash memory except the M500. As far as I concern, 2012 is the year of Wi-Fi capable devices, not only digital camera or camcorder, even scanner now has built-in Wi-Fi functionality. We are now living in the era of social sharing, that’s why the HF M-series are also equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity that enable users to share video wirelessly through social network sites such as Facebook and YouTube or store to local devices such as iPad, iPhone, or home computer, and share later (in case you need to tweak the video before uploading).

All models share the same features except the recording media. Along with an additional SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, the VIXIA HF M52 & M50 come with built-in 32 GB and 8 GB memory respectively. But the M500 has only a SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot without the built-in memory. Are you feeling lucky? Check these items at Along with the Wi-Fi capability, the HF M-series also equipped with DLNA compatibility, as well as the option to capture videos in MP4 format.
