Canon VIXIA HF M4 review: Canon VIXIA HF M4

 

Canon VIXIA HF M4

With a nice set of features for home-movie-type shooters and pleasing video quality, the ; series has lots to like.

A small, coarse LCD that's hard to view in direct sunlight and touch-screen-impaired menu system hamper an otherwise solid design.

A fine follow-up to last year's M3xx series, the Canon Vixia M4xx series should please most home-movie-oriented videographers despite its relatively high price. If you don't need the EVF, the M400 is your best buy, but if you'll be shooting a lot in...

Consumer review (cnet.com)

"The underrated camera delivers everything for webvideo."

 

Image stabilization is great, and the touch screen is very good after you become acquainted. Even the CNET pro reviewer is wrong about that touch screen. Most importantly, this is THE camera for shooting for the web because it trades all those...

Excellent performance in auto mode for just about all conditions.

Canon cleans up on overpriced proprietary batteries. WARNING: You can buy aftermarket a lot cheaper but this camera recognizes the difference and punishes you with a constantly flashing red light, if and when they work at all.
