Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens
Building on Canon’s decades of optical excellence, the VIXIA HF M50’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. The lens also features an iris diaphragm. Normally found only on professional-level camcorders, the iris diaphragm produces highly expressive video with sharply focused subjects and beautifully blurred backgrounds.

Newly Designed Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor
Equipped with the same high-powered image sensor found in professional models, the compact VIXIA HF M50 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*. Additional light to the sensor means that video shot in low-light situations is brighter and clearer, with better noise suppression. The newly extended dynamic range is exceptionally wide, producing enhanced gradation and natural, lifelike realism in high-contrast scenes.

*20% improved low-light performance compared to the Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor used in Canon’s 2011 VIXIA Camcorders.


Recording Options Mean You’ll Never Miss a Minute of Great Video

Record to Internal Flash Drive or SD Memory Card
The camcorder’s internal 8GB Flash Drive holds up to 3 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. Conveniently sized and readily available, SD cards give you up to 64GB (24 hours) of recording capacity for a combined capacity of 72GB or 27 hours. For added flexibility, you can even back up your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA-100 USB Adapter.

Steady Shooting in Any Situation

Intelligent IS
Intelligent IS makes it easy to shoot clear, sharply focused video, even in situations that typically cause camera shake. The Intelligent IS system analyzes the shooting situation for you, then automatically switches to the image stabilization method best able to produce sharp, steady video. Four IS systems cover the gamut of shooting situations. Dynamic IS corrects minor movement and the shaking caused by walking while shooting. Macro IS delivers perfectly steady close-up shots. Powered IS comes into play when you’re using the camcorder’s powerful zoom, correcting shake that can occur in telephoto shots. Tripod Mode stops IS when the camcorder is stationary.

Frequency response characteristics can be adjusted for the scene with several options. You can balance all frequencies for normal recording, emphasize low frequencies for impactful live music recording, attenuate low frequencies to reduce ambient noise, emphasize mid frequencies to focus on voices, or emphasize low and high frequencies to record live music with balanced lows and highs.

Attenuate Low Frequencies Reduce ambient noise and sound of traffic outdoors (wind, cars, etc.)
Emphasize mid frequencies Record focusing on people’s voices
