Canon LEGRIA HF M52 video review



Read the full Canon LEGRIA HF M52 review

The Canon LEGRIA HF M52 offers an unique blend of high-end video performance and the ability to act as a DLNA server to stream footage to compatible devices across your wireless network. The range of enthusiast features is also very good, although not quite on par with the best premium models, and the accessory shoe is a Canon proprietary one. With clever automated image stabilisation functions and other assistances for the point-and-shoot user, this is a capable camcorder for the videomaker who doesn't want to spend time configuring settings manually, but it is quite pricey.

I am planning to buy a camcorder for use on a motorbike, using a RAM-mount. The automated image stabilisation sounds perfect for optimum vibration reduction.However, the camcorder must be able to shoot video while the LCD screen is closed because the wind will probably close it and the camera would be switched off. I did notice that the power on/off button is not locate in the screen recess, which is good.
Could somebody please confirm that M52 can shoot video with the screen closed ?

For motorbike and action better buy would be go pro hero 3. You can attach it virtually anywhere, on motorbike you have much better options to position the camera where the speed and action is, for example close to tyres/earth etc, and you get better fps, so you can make slow motions etc better.

This camcorder does not record progressive video natively!
What you see in the specification is a technical trick (filthy lie).
Before you buy one please learn extensively what 25PF format is.
