      Comments about Canon VIXIA HF M40 Flash Memory Camcorder:

      I bought this primarily to get High Def shots of Christmas Lights since I do an animated display. Christmas Lights are tough on the Dynamic Range of any camera. If I go to Manual, set the focus to manual and set the exposure to -1.75 or -2.0 then I can get better than average shots. Now, the format. Saves in AVCHD. I've heard that editing on a Mac is difficult - wouldn't know, but editing in Adobe Premiere Elements 12 is a snap and also in Adobe Premiere CS6 (wasn't in CS5).

          Comments about Canon VIXIA HF M40 Flash Memory Camcorder:

          I compared this camcorder to the other three similar models that are on the market offered by Canon. This one was a super good value. I purchased it on sale for a really nice price so I couldn't pass it up. The set up was a snap and used it immediately to test it. I took some videos the next day for my kids holiday show and it worked fabulous. The camera came with two versions of editing software,in which I downloaded the more advanced one. I uploaded the video, trimmed out what I didn't need and easily burned a dvd to show everyone.

              Comments about Canon VIXIA HF M40 Flash Memory Camcorder:

              I've used this camera for about a month. The picture quality is short of professional cameras. If you watch HD TV and then switch to this cam you will notice that it's actually better than the TV. Another great feature is the DIGIC DV III Image Processor. This chip is amazing! The Smart Auto is exactly what Canon is advertising: very fast renders the best picture settings on Auto. Very powerful chip and software together with the image sensor make for a amazing camera! Low light quality is also extraordinary. Objects appear very very clear. Put all this together with a very cool design and attention to detail make this a great product. Far exceeds my (high) expectations! Congratulations Canon, keep it up!
