And now with built-in Wi-Fi®, you can immediately upload video from the camcorder directly to social networking sites via CANON iMAGE GATEWAY*, or your own home computer.

Features

Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens
Building on Canon's decades of optical excellence, the VIXIA HF M52's 10x HD Video Lens produces extraordinary images. The high-performance Canon HD Video Lens uses low-dispersion glass to suppress chromatic aberration, delivering crystal clear video with excellent resolution, even at the telephoto end of the zoom. Super spectra coating technology lowers flare and ghosting. Normally found only on professional-level camcorders, the VIXIA HF M52 features an iris diaphragm to produce highly expressive video with sharply focused subjects and beautifully blurred backgrounds.

Newly Designed Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor
The compact VIXIA HF M52 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†.

Record to Internal Flash Drive or SD Memory Card
The camcorder's internal 32GB Flash Drive holds up to 12 hours of crisp, high-definition video safely and securely. With no moving parts, flash memory technology is perfectly able to withstand camcorder jolts or drops. You can also record to a removable SD memory card, making it easy to share your video with friends and family. For added flexibility, you can even back up your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA-100 USB Adapter.

Relay Recording
With Relay Recording, you never have to worry about whether you're reaching maximum capacity on the camcorder's internal flash drive. When the internal drive is full, the system automatically switches recording over to the SD memory card. This reassuring backup system means you'll never miss capturing an important scene again.

Record in AVCHD or MP4 Format
The VIXIA HF M52 camcorder gives you the flexibility of dual codec recording, allowing you to record in AVCHD or MP4 format, so you can pick the format that best suits your needs. AVCHD's higher bit-rate and finer resolution will yield the highest quality video for viewing on an HDTV or archiving to Blu-ray™. And for use with today's most typical video applications, the camcorder lets you record in MP4 format, too. MP4 format produces files you can share right away - with no need for conversion. Video is immediately available to upload to social networking sites like Facebook™ or YouTube™, view on an iPhone™, iPad™ or iPod Touch™.

Built-in Wi-Fi®
Built-in Wi-Fi® opens up a world of new possibilities, giving you the connectivity and immediacy you expect today. If you're in an Internet hotspot, you can share videos over the Internet by signing up on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY* - an online photo storage service that lets you upload to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The free Canon Movie Uploader app lets you upload video from the VIXIA HF M52 camcorder to your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® device virtually anywhere. Wireless setup with the VIXIA HF M52 is as quick and easy as it is with your other devices, and you can register and store up to three networks for immediate retrieval any time.

Intelligent IS
Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation.

Audio Scene Select
Audio Scene Select offers five modes that automatically optimize settings based on the recording situation, making it easy to record realistic, immersive audio in a range of situations.
