Features

Flash Memory
The VIXIA HF M301 allows you to record crisp high definition video to an SDXC-compatible memory card slot. With SDXC memory card compatibility, you'll have card storage capacity from more than 32GB up to 2TB and ultra-fast data transfer speeds.

Stunning Image Quality
A Genuine Canon 15x HD Video Lens delivers unsurpassed image quality. The Canon Exclusive 3.89-megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor captures video at 1920 x 1080 resolution and photos with astonishing detail, while the Canon Exclusive DIGIC DV III Image Processor provides the ultimate in color and imaging performance, with enhanced reproduction of difficult to capture purple and blue tones. Exceptionally lifelike tone and detail are captured thanks to 24Mbps Recording, which offers the highest bit rate in AVCHD. The VIXIA HF M301 not only captures images in Full HD, but records and outputs at 1920 x 1080 as well, so you get Full HD from lens to screen.

Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization with Powered IS
The VIXIA HF M301 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 Powered IS, it offers you 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
Another critical objective when shooting in high definition is achieving the sharpest focus possible. The VIXIA HF M301 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.

2.7" Touch Panel LCD Screen
See exceptional detail with a sharp 211,000 dot screen delivering brilliant color together with touch panel control for faster and easier menu navigation. You also have Touch & Track, which allows you to get precise focus and exposure on any subject - whether it's people, vehicles, or another, by selecting your choice right on the Touch Panel LCD.

Smart Auto
Smart Auto makes shooting great video easier than ever before. Using the power of Canon's DIGIC DV III Image Processor, the VIXIA HF M301 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.
