Pro Image Quality with Compact Convenience

Small and light with a sleek new design, the VIXIA HF M500 camcorder's image quality is unsurpassed, thanks to the camcorder's newly designed, professional-level Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor. The high-sensitivity sensor provides outstanding resolution, better low-light performance, and beautiful, natural detail in both shadow and highlight areas. Intelligent IS and SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization designed for the Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens make every scene clear and steady, and new built-in features make it easy to give your videos added creativity. Operation is fun and simple with a Flat Touch Panel LCD you'll control with your fingertips. This camcorder has the flexibility you crave: enjoy the convenience of recording video in either AVCHD or MP4 format or to a removable SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card.

Newly Designed Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor

Equipped with the same high-powered image sensor found in professional models, the compact VIXIA HF M500 camcorder captures 1080p Full HD video with the rich, vivid quality of a much more upscale camcorder. The professional-level 1/3-inch native 1920 x 1080, HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor has a large pixel size that captures more available light to deliver superb imaging. Technical refinements including a thinner on-chip microlens, improved color filter transmittance and deeper, wider photodiode allow 20% higher light transmittance*. Additional light to the sensor means that video shot in low-light situations is brighter and clearer, with better noise suppression. The newly extended dynamic range is exceptionally wide, producing enhanced gradation and natural, lifelike realism in high-contrast scenes.
