Small and light with a sleek new design, the Canon VIXIA HF M500 camcorder's image quality is unsurpassed, thanks to the camcorder's newly designed, professional-level Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor. The high-sensitivity sensor provides outstanding resolution, better low-light performance and beautiful, natural detail in both shadow and highlight areas.
Intelligent IS and SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization designed for the Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens make every scene clear and steady and new built-in features make it easy to give your videos added creativity. Operation is fun and simple with a Flat Touch Panel LCD you'll control with your fingertips. This camcorder has the flexibility you crave: enjoy the convenience of recording video in either AVCHD or MP4 format or to a removable SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card.
I was looking for a mid priced camcorder with good low light capabilitiy and after reading dozens of reviews decided to go with the canon vixia hf m500. I have been extremely pleased with the performance of this camera and I would highly recommend it for anyone shopping for a mid priced camcorder.This camcorder was my second purchase from Adorama and I have been very satisfied with all aspects of my purchases from them.Check the reviews out for yourself and I believe you will find this camcorder to be worthy of your consideration.
Super impressed with the clarity of this camcorder. Great price. Easy to use.

So far we love this camcorder. Very easy to use, great hd videos, great low level lighting. Captures fine detail. Good battery life for home videos.
This is a good camcorder, loaded of good features, but unfortunately for a camcorder of such level, it's a shame not coming with an onboard memory.
I have used this camcorder to record rugby matches, and I was so impressed that I bought one for myself,for video while I work as a nature photographer with a large format still camera. I'm impressed by the image quality, and I've only used it in the MP4 range--we need to down-load it for use by referee coaches. I'm sure I'm going to enjoy using my own Vixia for nature videos in HD.
Used to record church events. Great lens and great HD picture quality. Limited zoom, but still good. HDMI output is great as is the onboard preview. Touch screen is much better than prior versions.
