LEGRIA HF M41

Canon Full HD CMOS Pro sensor

The 2.4 MP HD CMOS Pro sensor is designed and made by Canon for its professional camcorders. The light gathering area of the pixels is 160% bigger than conventional CMOS sensors, delivering a wider dynamic range and advanced low-light performance.

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.

Creative cinematic functions

Effortlessly develop your video skills to make short videos with a story. Canon’s new Story Creator lets you choose a theme for your movie with in-built scene suggestions to add interest. Inspire your creativity with Cinema-Look Filters. Select from 8 adjustable colour-grading filters to capture the perfect movie scene.

Fun with Touch Decoration

Add fun effects to your movies, without a PC, using Touch Decoration. Stamp colourful designs onto the Touch-screen with the Stylus Pen or add titles, frames and animated graphics to personalise your movie.

Simple 7.5cm Touch-screen operation

A high-resolution 7.5cm gesture-based Touch-screen LCD, gives you simple fingertip access to shooting and playback functions. A colour viewfinder adds to your shot-framing options.

32GB Dual Flash memory - easy sharing

Full HD video records to a 32GB built-in memory for up to 12 hours. Two SDXC memory card slots simplify sharing, while Relay Recording means you won’t run out of space. In-camera HD to SD conversion ensures easy web upload.

Effortless shooting

Creating high-quality movies is effortless, even for beginners. Smart Auto lets the camcorder take control - intelligently selecting shooting settings for all scenes. Face Detection optimises the settings for great people shots, and Instant AF ensures fast and accurate focusing for HD.
