Canon Vixia HF M30 review: Canon Vixia HF M30

 

Very good video at highest quality setting; nice lens performance.

Poorly designed touch-screen menu system; short battery life; defaults to low-quality video mode.

At its best, the Canon Vixia HF M3x series--composed of the M300, M30, M31, and M32--delivers a very good blend of video quality, features, and performance for the money, but some people may find the touch-screen interface extremely frustrating to use...

Canon VIXIA HF M30 High Definition AVCHD Camcorder - Excellent Videos and Photos

 

After buying and using several HD camcorders (including the Canon VIXIA HF M30), I returned them and kept the last year's HF200. The reason was simple: I got it refurbished for under $300. But if I had to choose among similarly-conditioned camcorders...

Stunningly excellent video quality, compact size, low price, easy to use, flexible

Low-light videos require some tweaking to avoid overexposure and noise
