Quite a few digital camera brands now offer Wi-Fi in their compact stills cameras, so it’s little surprise to find Canon adding a comparable feature to its Legria consumer camcorders. The HF-M range, announced at CES, are able to quickly send footage wirelessly to a storage drive, rather than first having to be plugged in to a laptop or PC and transferred.

Key features of the Legria HF-M36 camcorder include Mpeg4 support, optical image stabilization, 51x digital zoom, cinematic filters and face detection. The camcorder offers 38 separate scene modes and comes with Story Creator software for easy storyboarding of your resulting footage.

Canon Legria HF-M camcorders will be available from April.
