The Canon VIXIA HF M40 is a digital high definition camcorder designed for recording up to 6 hours of video footage on the included 16GB of internal memory. Unlike other camcorders, the HF M40 offers dual SDXC-compatible memory card slots. The signature component to the HF M40 is a 1/3” native 1920x1080 image sensor designed to capture 1080p HD video footage and full HD still images with enhanced low-light performance. Note that the sensor is only 2.07MP. It’s this low on purpose, in that the camera uses fewer pixels in order to provide for more optimized video performance. Note also that the HF M40 offers 24p Cinema recording, meaning videos are captured at the same rate as professional movie films, which means for better color and tonal characteristics.
