The Canon VIXIA HF M300 is a lower end digital high definition camcorder that’s a downgrade from the M30. Unlike the M30, which hosts integrated memory, the M300 has no internal memory, meaning users must first purchase an SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory card that they can then insert into the HF M300. Though the memory is different, the HF M300 is otherwise a duplicate of its peer. Like it, the HF M300 offers a 24p Cinema Mode that captures video at 24p, which thereby makes the film appear like that of a professional film. There’s also a 30p Progressive Mode, which is the optimal frame rate for action and sports content that will later end up on the Internet. The HF M300 also offers a premium Face Detection technology that can automatically track up to 35 faces and ensure that they appear razor sharp and natural. Mind you, only 9 can be tracked at one time.
