The Canon VIXIA HF M400 is a digital high definition camcorder released as a downgrade from the M40. Unlike its 16GB counterpart, the HF M400 doesn’t come with integrated memory. It does however offer dual SDXC card slots for maximum expandability. Like its peer, the HF M400 uses a DIGIC DV III Image Processor capable of intelligently detecting and also analyzing faces, brightness, color, distance, and movement, and then automatically adjusting the settings for a more optimized shooting experience. Also like its peer, the HF M400 is capable of full high definition video and still capture at an optimal 1920x1080 resolution with a 24fps rate, which is the same rate as movies. This translates to better quality captures. Note also that the HF M400 offers a touch display for easily operating it without difficulty.
