The Canon Vixia HF M300 Flash Memory Camcorder records directly to an SD memory card slot and is ultra-sleek, compact and lightweight - it's a brilliant blend of capability and convenience. Canon's advanced imaging technologies, including a Genuine Canon 15x HD Video Lens and 3.89-megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor, help to deliver high definition video and 3.3 megapixel photos with incredible detail and lifelike color. Sophisticated features such as Smart Auto “reads” the visual components of the scene you're shooting and chooses the best settings. Touch & Track allows you to achieve sharp focus and precise exposure for any subject, simply by touching the 2.7” Touch Panel LCD. And to complete the entertainment picture, 5.1-Channel Surround Sound* ensures your audio is every bit as impressive as your video.

Strengths: The images are sharp, the AF is fast and the options are great. You can get good video from auto-mode or great video using a few simple manual adjustments
Weaknesses: My only negative is I wish it had a viewfinder. The LCD screen is great but can be hard to see in bright sunlight (like any other LCD) so a viewfinder is always a good option to have.
Bought this camcorder simply for the task of taking videos of my children. I've taken it to talent shows, vacations, soccer games... I've used it indoors, outdoors and in many different lighting conditions and I have always been happy with the results.
