When we read about the high-end camcorder range from Canon that is the Canon Legria HF M-Series, we rather thought that they'd have to be quite big when

Canon Legria HF M52

 

It started out as an evening to check out a Canon camcorder but events turned out differently to what I expected.

Recently I was a murder victim. I kid you not. There I was busily typing away on a Mac Book when I was repeatedly brutally stabbed several times by a masked maniac. This horrendous crime was committed at The Hospital but this location seemed bereft of...

Canon Legria HFM52

 

The Canon HFM52 is a generic camera that matches its price tag. If you're looking for a straight, no-fuss camera without the gimmicks offered by other brands, then this camera would be a good purchase.

Comfortable to hold ; Warm, realistic colours ; Good still image quality

Poor low-light performance ; Frustrating interface and menus ; Image stabiliser is not good

Canon HF M52

 

Fantastic video performance, but Canon's new WiFi feature didn't win us over.

Fantastic low light performance; More recording options with new MPEG-4 720p setting

Little, if any, performance improvement over last year’s HF M40; WiFi features are very confusing

If you’re looking for a first-rate low light camcorder that won’t break the bank, then the Canon HF M52 is right up your alley. It’s a fantastic product in terms of video performance, and it ranked near the top of its class in all of our video tests...
