1920 x 1080 50/25p HD Recording ,32GB Internal Flash Drive Memory ,(2) SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card Slots 2.37MP 1/3" CMOS Sensor 3.0" Touch Panel LCD / 0.24" Viewfinder Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens Dynamic SuperRange Optical IS Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor Creative Cinematic Functions

The Canon LEGRIA HF M41 Flash Memory PAL Camcorder is a 1920 x 1080 high def

cam with 32GB of internal memory. In addition to its built-in memory, the HF M41 also

boasts two SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slots. With this much space it's possible to

record up to 2TB of files.

Whether you record to the internal memory or removable cards, the camera's 1/3" CMOS

sensor and Canon's DIGIC DV III image processor work together to provide stunningly

detailed, life-like images that look great on your HDTV. Of course, these two don't work

alone: the HF M41 also employs a genuine Canon 10x HD video lens, optical image

stabilization, and a 3.0" touch panel LCD, among other great features.

Designed with advanced users in mind, the camcorder also comes with headphone and

microphone jacks. These connections make it possible to capture high quality audio to go

along with your movies. In addition to using an external mic for audio, the HF M41

features an enhanced internal microphone, which gives you the choice of 4 different

recording directions, including monaural, stereo, wide, or synced with zoom. This feature

also allows for adjustment between low, mid-range, and high frequencies.

For those times when you feel like letting the camera do the work, the HF M41 has a

number of user-friendly shooting controls that make for uncomplicated shooting. Face

detection, Instant AF, Smart Auto, and a bevy of others all take the guesswork out of

recording, allowing you to focus on enjoying the moment instead of worrying about

settings. Other important features include Photo Grab, for taking still images from

already shot video, 25p frame mode for more cinematic videos, along with Cinema-Look

filters. A number of other options give you the tools necessary for capturing memories

that will last a lifetime.

Flash Memory

The LEGRIA HF M41 allows you to record up to 12 hours of clear high definition video

to a 32GB internal flash drive or to two SDXC compatible memory cards. With Relay

Recording, the camcorder automatically switches video recording from the internal drive

to the next available SD card when the memory becomes full. No need then to worry

about running out of recording time during a thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime shot. With

SDXC memory card compatibility, you'll have card storage capacity from more than

32GB up to 2TB and ultra-fast data transfer speeds.

You'll also have the flexibility of copying video from your LEGRIA HF M41's internal

drive to the removable SD memory cards. That makes it easy to insert the card into your

computer or HDTV's card reader and view your recorded footage immediately.

The advantages of flash memory go beyond the added recording time. You'll also

appreciate the quick response time, because there are no moving parts in the recording

process. Press the record button and your LEGRIA HF M41 starts recording video faster

than you've ever seen before. In addition, when you review, you'll have quick access to

your footage.

HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor

Incorporating a proven technology in Canon's professional level camcorders, HD CMOS

Pro is a 1/3" 2.37MP image sensor which delivers outstanding video resolution, superb

low-light performance and a wide dynamic range. Unlike image sensors found in

competitive consumer camcorders, HD CMOS Pro uses fewer pixels, which are

significantly larger (61 percent) and more sensitive, resulting in optimized video


Low Power Consumption

Another plus is the LEGRIA HF M41's low power consumption rate, allowing your

battery to last longer. It's just what you need so you don't miss that pivotal play on the

field or the moment when they say "I do."


While we certainly hope you keep your LEGRIA HF M41 securely in your hand while

shooting, if it happens to slip, or you accidentally knock it against something, you'll be

happy to know that flash memory makes your camcorder more shock-resistant than other

recording storage systems. It also minimizes the chance of data loss if you accidentally

drop your camcorder

Outstanding Video Resolution

Since the effective number of pixels of HD CMOS Pro is equal to 1920 x 1080 (2.07-

megapixels), resizing is eliminated, allowing Full HD video to be captured and recorded

with professional precision (800 vertical and 900 horizontal TV lines).

Superb Low-Light Performance (1.3 Lux)

Because each individual pixel is larger and more sensitive, each is capable of capturing

more light, allowing high quality video to be achieved even in dimly lit conditions. The

sensitivity of HD CMOS Pro is approximately 25% better than the HD CMOS sensor in

the 2010 LEGRIA HF S series.

Wide Dynamic Range

A larger pixel area also allows more light to be stored, resulting in 280% improvement in

dynamic range for exceptional reproduction of both highlights and shadows. Skin tones

are captured in a finer gradation, and stable gamma and Auto Exposure control is also

achieved resulting in a more 'lifelike' image.

Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens

A Genuine Canon 10x HD Video lens delivers unsurpassed image quality, and provides

smooth and professional looking background images thanks to its sophisticated 6 blade

iris effect. Combined with the Canon Exclusive HD CMOS Pro image sensor, it captures

video with stunning resolution, superb low-light performance, and a wide dynamic range.

DIGIC DV III Image Processor

Canon's DIGIC DV III image processor provides stunningly realistic color and

sophisticated noise reduction for exceptional low-light performance. It is also the high-

speed engine that powers a variety of Canon technologies including Smart Auto, Touch

& Track, Genuine Canon Face Detection, and Cinema-Look filters.

24Mbps Recording

You will also find that enhanced life-like tone and detail are captured thanks to 24Mbps

recording, which offers the highest bit rate in AVCHD. The LEGRIA HF M41 not only

captures images in HD, but records and outputs at 1920 x 1080 as well, so you get HD

from lens to screen.

Tele Macro

With Tele Macro, the LEGRIA HF M41 automatically zooms the lens to the telephoto

end and sets the minimum object distance to approximately 1.3 feet (from 3.3 feet),

giving you the opportunity to shoot spectacular close-ups with the dramatic look of

shallow depth of field. Tele Macro is one of 38 scenes available in Smart Auto Mode.

Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization with Powered IS

The LEGRIA HF M41 features Canon's proprietary Dynamic SuperRange optical image

stabilization which provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to

correct a broad range of motion. Extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal

lengths to eliminate unwanted shaking which is common when walking. Together with

the latest development, Powered IS, you'll find an even higher level of compensation for

subtle hand movement at the telephoto end of the zoom range. Powered IS can be

engaged by pressing or holding the Powered IS button on the touch panel LCD.

Instant AF

A critical objective when shooting in high definition is achieving the sharpest focus

possible. The LEGRIA HF M41 camcorder features Canon's revolutionary Instant AF

focusing system which offers a dramatic improvement in auto focus speed and accuracy,

compared to traditional auto focus systems. The Instant AF feature uses an external

sensor, in combination with Canon's auto focus system, to help significantly decrease the

time it takes to find focus, even in low light conditions. This system achieves focus

instantaneously, reducing focus "hunting." This is especially beneficial in high brightness

or night shooting situations. In addition, with Instant AF it's possible to capture fast,

accurate focusing even when following a moving subject.

Focus Assist

To further enhance focusing capability the LEGRIA HF M41 also features Focus Assist.

This helps in capturing your subject in razor-sharp focus. It works by providing a 2x

magnification of your subject, which is automatically cancelled when you start recording.

This is a feature normally found in professional broadcast-quality cameras.

3.0" Touch Panel LCD Screen with Viewfinder

See exceptional detail with a sharp 230,000 dot screen delivering brilliant color together

with touch panel control for faster and easier menu navigation. You'll also have Touch &

Track, which allows you to get precise focus and exposure on any subject whether it's

people, pets, vehicles, or any moving object, by selecting your choice right on the touch

panel LCD.

You'll also be able to use the touch panel for Touch Decoration. This feature lets you

superimpose select decorations onto the images on your LCD and then records the

images complete with the additions. You may add animation effects, hand written and

stamp messages or insert a still image to give your video a truly individual look. A 0.24"

electronic viewfinder gives you more shooting and framing options.

Smart Auto

Smart Auto makes shooting great video easier than ever before. Using the power of

Canon's DIGIC DV III Image Processor, the LEGRIA HF M41 intelligently detects and

analyzes faces, brightness, color, distance, and movement, then automatically selects the

best settings for the scene. Whether you are capturing a sunset, a day at the beach, or a

fast-paced soccer game, Smart Auto delivers exceptional accuracy, raising your video to

the next level.

Among the 38 scenes available in Smart Auto, a standout is Tele Macro. Tele Macro

automatically zooms the lens of the camcorder to the telephoto end, setting the minimum

object distance to approximately 1.3 feet (from 3.3 feet). This gives you the opportunity

to shoot spectacular close-ups with the dramatic look of a shallow depth of field.

Touch & Track

Touch & Track delivers precise tracking of the focus and exposure on any subject- people,

pets, and vehicles - any moving object. Simply select your point of interest on the touch

panel LCD, and you will have your subject in sharp focus, regardless of where in the

frame it moves during the shot - and the exposure will be perfectly adjusted for subject

and conditions. Touch & Track is the default setting. You can also choose to adjust focus

or exposure independently by turning off Touch & Track, and turning on Touch Focus or

Touch Exposure.

Touch Focus

Touch Focus allows the user to pinpoint a specific area to focus on. This function is

similar to the Push AF feature found in professional camcorders, but can target a subject

anywhere in the frame.

Touch Exposure

Touch Exposure enables exposure to be locked or compensated for the area touched by

the user.

Genuine Canon Face Detection

The same high quality Face Detection technology used in Canon digital cameras is

available in the LEGRIA HF M41 camcorder. Up to 35 faces can be tracked

automatically, ensuring razor-sharp focus and natural, accurate exposure. Of the faces

tracked, 9 detection frames can be displayed at one time.

The system is in fact so smart that it will recognize faces turned downwards or sideways.

In addition, a specific face may be selected as the main subject for continuous tracking.

This feature can be used to search for clips featuring that specific subject's face. In search

and playback, use of the Face Index will display frames with the chosen face as a

thumbnail in each shot in which it appears. The selected face can be linked as a timeline

to further identify footage containing that subject.

Advanced Video Snapshot

Advanced Video Snapshot allows you to capture the highlights of a once-in-a-lifetime

trip or a family milestone with the same ease as taking photos. Simply record a series of

short video clips - or select your favorite clips while in Playback Mode - and blend in

your favorite background music to create an exciting movie that will grab everyone's

attention. This version of Advanced Video Snapshot allows selectable recording time (2,

4, or 8 seconds). Additionally, audio from an external source such as an MP3 player can

be played along with the Snapshot movie, and playback can be controlled from that


HD-to-SD Downconversion

HD-to-SD Downconversion allows you to convert recorded high definition video to

standard definition files while safely preserving the original HD video. These standard

definition files make it even more convenient to edit or share video online. The video can

be transferred to your computer via traditional methods - i.e. USB connection, card slot

or wirelessly to sharing sites with an Eye-Fi SD memory card.

Photo Grab

The versatile LEGRIA HF M41 even lets you capture a photo from an already recorded

movie. While playing the movie in your camcorder, simply press the LCD to capture a

1920 x 1080 photo onto an SD card or to the internal memory. Additionally, the LEGRIA

HF M41 allows you to capture 25 photos from one second of video.

25p Frame Mode

25p Cinema Mode enables all aspiring moviemakers to achieve a professional "film-

look." You can change the camcorder's frame capture rate to 25p (recorded at 50i), which

provides the appearance of the same frame rate as movie film. In addition, you can use

the LEGRIA HF M41's CINE setting, which changes the color and tonal characteristics,

evoking the look and feel of a movie shown in a theater. For added flexibility, these

settings can be used together or independently.

Cinema-Look Filters

Other cinematic looks can be had through the use of Cinema-Look Filters. This feature

offers a choice of 9 varied built-in adjustable filters which give the look of a variety of

cinematic styles by compensating for the color, gamma and other aspects of the image's

quality. The looks can be previewed in the LCD display while shooting. Choose from:

Cinema standard: Tones down highlights slightly, boosts shadows slightly and adds

warmth for a cinematic look

Cool: Adds a bluish tint for cool, futuristic-looking scenes

Dramatic B/W: Creates bold B/W movies with high contrast and grain

Dream: Adds a magical look (soft focus) for dream-like scenes

Memory: Adds a faded, misty look to create flashback scenes

Nostalgic: Recreates the look of old '70s TV programs

Old Movie: Gives movies the aged look of old cinema

of terminals to extend the capabilities of your camcorder. A supplied HDMI cable offers

easy, one-cable connectivity to your HDTV. The HDMI Terminal also supports CEC and
