    Good with a few notes, April 5, 2012

    Happy with my purchase and worth the price. Would recommend to others. A few notes since nobody else has reviewed this yet.

    Video & audio quality are as expected and very good.

    Wireless feature is not usable for me. I have my wireless network locked down in part by MAC address (if you don’t know what that means, you can safely ignore this part of the review). Unfortunately, the camera does not tell you what its MAC address is, and it isn’t located anywhere on the body. The manual is likewise missing any information on this. And for those of you who say I can just have my router scan my network for it, I live in a townhouse community with like 100 other wireless devices all showing up on scans.

    Built-in 8gb of storage is great, but you’ll still need to get a memory card if you are going to use this thing for real. I picked up a SanDisk Ultra 64 GB SDXC Class 10 30MB/s (SDSDU-064G-U46) and it works fine with no issues.

    Stock battery sticks out the back some since the camera was shrunk down to be small. I’m fine with it, wife hates it. If you choose to upgrade to a bigger battery, this will be even more pronounced. If you plan on recording more than 90 minutes or so, you’ll need a bigger battery.

    Touchscreen isn’t like your iPad – you’ve gotta press a fair amount to get it to register what you’re doing. I find myself having to put my free fingers behind the panel to help hold it since I have to push so much. I’ve gotten more familiar with this over the past week or two, but I still like to hold the touchscreen. Also, touchscreen isn’t the most accurate. I don’t have chubby fingers, but it doesn’t always click where I want it to. Again, I’ve gotten better with practice at clicking where I want, but it still sometimes goes goofy. I still prefer a joystick.

    Has a mini hot shoe. Haven’t used it yet, but be aware if you have full sized hot shoe accessories.

    Don’t think my griping makes me regret my purchase. Like I said before, I’m happy with the purchase and would buy it again. Photo & video/audio quality are great.

    good low light video, July 31, 2012

    I had an M30 previously which I was mostly happy with so I bought this as a replacement. I was disappointed there isn’t a flash like on the M30. I like the convenience of having a single device for video and pictures. I’m not too disappointed because the M30 didn’t take great pictures to begin with. Also the low light capability is much better on the M50 so pictures look better even without flash. I’m especially impressed with the low light capability. In bright sunlight with the M30 or M50 the video is spectacular. But with the M30 shooting in indoor lighting produced grainy pictures. I’m an amateur and really just want a camera to capture the precious moments. A lot of these moments occur indoors and I don’t have special lighting to enhance the video. I found that with the M30 that even turning on all the possible lights still resulted in a degraded video. This doesn’t happen with the M50. Colors are still vibrant. The battery life is better. On a full charge I can record 2h of video which is enough to cover a full day with intermittent 3-7 min interval recordings at a recent family trip. I didn’t like the removal of the physical picture taking button. Now it is on the touch screen. This makes it hard to capture the spontaneous, nonposed photos because the touchscreen can be unresponsive at times, other times I wanted to take photo but actived a reticle on the screen so the picture was missed. What I’m doing now is just continuously holding the photo button and hoping I can capture a good image. Again I don’t consider this a big loss because the picture taking capability of the M30 was just OK to begin with. The touch screen is mostly responsive. Luckily I stick with the auto settings so don’t fiddle much with it. You can do all sorts of enhancements to the video on the camcorder itself but I find it superfluous. The wifi couldn’t connect to my router which I suspect I can get to work if I change some router settings but also seems superfluous. Otherwise good camera. Great video with good lighting, good video in low lighting.

    Great Camera!!, May 15, 2012

    This review is from: Canon VIXIA HF M50 Full HD 10x Image Stabilized Camcorder (Electronics)

    This is a great camera that I have had for a few weeks now. The features, the camera controls, and the image quality are great on it!

    The WiFi capability is a nice convenience . The transfer to my laptop and YouTube worked as expected, though it does require the instillation of the Network Utility Software it came with to work, but that was simple enough to do. I couldn’t get uploading to Facebook to work, but that wasn’t a big deal to me since the main thing I liked the WiFi for was for uploading to my laptop without needing wires. Maybe they will fix that in an update. The transfer speed is about what you’d expect with a WiFi connection, and it varies depending on the length and quality of the video files being transferred. I’ve been very happy with it.

    The camera functions work nicely too. The LCD touch screen is nice and clear, although it does take a little bit of pressure for it to register your finger compared to tablet touch screens and such. The little stylus it came with works better than your finger, but it does look strange for a stylus. I haven’t tried to look at the screen while in direct sunlight, but I’ve read that it may be an issue if you do a lot of outdoors shooting. There is however a way to turn up the brightness which may help with that issue. The design is great and really feels nice while holding it. The only problem I have with the design is when the camera is off you can hear the Optical Image Stabilizer rattle around slightly while handling it, but it doesn’t rattle around when the camera is on, which is good. It was a bit a nerving at first until I read that previous models of this same camera had the same issue. Not a necessarily a deal breaker for me because all cameras are fragile and you should be careful with anyway, this one you just want to be a little extra careful with.

    Now the picture quality is the best part for me! The CMOS Pro sensor gives very nice quality video! The low light was very impressive. The picture quality in low light is relatively good for a camera in this price range when used in Full Auto mode, but it is especially good when in the 24p cinema mode. In well lit areas its also impressive with the amount of detail it picks up. The quality of the footage is good enough for basic home movie needs, and also for a semi-pro enthusiast for sure! It also has some manual functions, (like manual focus, shutter speed, aperture, etc.) that are changeable by using the LCD touch display.

    Overall, I really like this camera! I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good quality camera, with great picture quality, for a descent price. Also, you might want to look at the other models this camera comes in, depending on what you want out of it. I got this one, the Vixia M50, cause it had the WiFi capabilities and a small 8gb of internal storage. The Vixia M52 is the same as the M50 but with more internal storage, and the M500 doesn’t have WiFi or internal storage. All of them can take SD cards to expand their storage capabilities, however. So I’d recommend looking at the other models depending on what you want. The M500 is the cheapest of the three with the M52 is the most expensive, and the M50 is a nice middle ground (another reason I got it). Great camera!
