Camcorders, CES 2012, Tech Digest news

Those looking to step up from their pocket HD camcorders or smartphone video recording apps would do well to check out Canon’s latest M-Series camcorders, just unveiled at this week’s CES 2012 conference.

Top of the line is the Canon Legria HF M52. It features an HD CMOS Pro Sensor, capable of 20% better performance in low-light conditions, built in Wi-Fi for DLNA streaming, Facebook and YouTube uploads and streaming to a dedicated Apple iOS app, a 10x optical zoom, AVCHD compatibility and a 7.5 inch adjustable, swivelling touchscreen.

There are three models to fit differing bank balances. The premium edition is the Canon Legria HF M52 which comes with 32GB of built-in storage, the cheaper M52 with just 8GB of storage, and the entry-level model called the M506 that drops the Wi-Fi functions and only stores to SD cards.

No pricing details announced yet, but these should be in shops by the Spring.
