Canon Vixia HF M52 Camcorder Review
This Canon HF M52 doesn't shy away in low light.
With excellent low light performance and a decent amount of manual controls, the Canon HF M52 is one of the best mid-range camcorders on the market. It does come with a steep $750 price tag, however, and the new features—which include WiFi capability and a new 720p MPEG-4 record mode—certainly aren't groundbreaking. If you already own a Canon HF M41 or M40 from last year, then there isn't much of a compelling reason to upgrade.
