Would recommend to others. A few notes sincenobody else has reviewed this yet.Video & audio quality are as expected and very good.Wireless feature is not usable for me. I have my wireless network locked down in part by MACaddress (if you dont know what that means, you can safely ignore this part of the review).Unfortunately, the camera does not tell you what its MAC address is, and it isnt locatedanywhere on the body. The manual is likewise missing any information on this. And for those ofyou who say I can just have my router scan my network for it, I live in a townhouse communitywith like 100 other wireless devices all showing up on scans.Built-in 8gb of storage is great, but youll still need to get a memory card if you are going to usethis thing for real. I picked up a SanDisk Ultra 64 GB SDXC Class 10 30MB/s (SDSDU-064G-U46) and it works fine with no issues.Stock battery sticks out the back some since the camera was shrunk down to be small. Im finewith it, wife hates it. If you choose to upgrade to a bigger battery, this will be even morepronounced. If you plan on recording more than 90 minutes or so, youll need a bigger battery.Touchscreen isnt like your iPad - youve gotta press a fair amount to get it to register what youredoing. I find myself having to put my free fingers behind the panel to help hold it since I have topush so much. Ive gotten more familiar with this over the past week or two, but I still like tohold the touchscreen. Also, touchscreen isnt the most accurate. I dont have chubby fingers, butit doesnt always click where I want it to. Again, Ive gotten better with practice at clicking whereI want, but it still sometimes goes goofy. I still prefer a joystick.Has a mini hot shoe. Havent used it yet, but be aware if you have full sized hot shoe accessories.Dont think my griping makes me regret my purchase. Like I said before, Im happy with thepurchase and would buy it again. Photo & video/audio quality are great.21 of 22 people found the following review helpful.Great Camera!!By DaCoolness
This is a great camera that I have had for a few weeks now. The features, the camera controls,and the image quality are great on it!The WiFi capability is a nice convenience . The transfer to my laptop and YouTube worked asexpected, though it does require the instillation of the Network Utility Software it came with towork, but that was simple enough to do. I couldnt get uploading to Facebook to work, but thatwasnt a big deal to me since the main thing I liked the WiFi for was for uploading to my laptopwithout needing wires. Maybe they will fix that in an update. The transfer speed is about whatyoud expect with a WiFi connection, and it varies depending on the length and quality of thevideo files being transferred. Ive been very happy with it.The camera functions work nicely too. The LCD touch screen is nice and clear, although it doestake a little bit of pressure for it to register your finger compared to tablet touch screens andsuch. The little stylus it came with works better than your finger, but it does look strange for astylus. I havent tried to look at the screen while in direct sunlight, but Ive read that it may be anissue if you do a lot of outdoors shooting. There is however a way to turn up the brightnesswhich may help with that issue. The design is great and really feels nice while holding it. Theonly problem I have with the design is when the camera is off you can hear the Optical ImageStabilizer rattle around slightly while handling it, but it doesnt rattle around when the camera ison, which is good. It was a bit a nerving at first until I read that previous models of this samecamera had the same issue. Not a necessarily a deal breaker for me because all cameras arefragile and you should be careful with anyway, this one you just want to be a little extra carefulwith.Now the picture quality is the best part for me! The CMOS Pro sensor gives very nice qualityvideo! The low light was very impressive. The picture quality in low light is relatively good for acamera in this price range when used in Full Auto mode, but it is especially good when in the24p cinema mode. In well lit areas its also impressive with the amount of detail it picks up. Thequality of the footage is good enough for basic home movie needs, and also for a semi-proenthusiast for sure! It also has some manual functions, (like manual focus, shutter speed,aperture, etc.) that are changeable by using the LCD touch display.Overall, I really like this camera! I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good qualitycamera, with great picture quality, for a descent price. Also, you might want to look at the othermodels this camera comes in, depending on what you want out of it. I got this one, the VixiaM50, cause it had the WiFi capabilities and a small 8gb of internal storage. The Vixia M52 is thesame as the M50 but with more internal storage, and the M500 doesnt have WiFi or internalstorage. All of them can take SD cards to expand their storage capabilities, however. So Idrecommend looking at the other models depending on what you want. The M500 is the cheapestof the three with the M52 is the most expensive, and the M50 is a nice middle ground (anotherreason I got it). Great camera!23 of 25 people found the following review helpful.good low light videoBy Marcus ChowI had an M30 previously which I was mostly happy with so I bought this as a replacement. I was
disappointed there isnt a flash like on the M30. I like the convenience of having a single devicefor video and pictures. Im not too disappointed because the M30 didnt take great pictures tobegin with. Also the low light capability is much better on the M50 so pictures look better evenwithout flash. Im especially impressed with the low light capability. In bright sunlight with theM30 or M50 the video is spectacular. But with the M30 shooting in indoor lighting producedgrainy pictures. Im an amateur and really just want a camera to capture the precious moments. Alot of these moments occur indoors and I dont have special lighting to enhance the video. Ifound that with the M30 that even turning on all the possible lights still resulted in a degradedvideo. This doesnt happen with the M50. Colors are still vibrant. The battery life is better. On afull charge I can record 2h of video which is enough to cover a full day with intermittent 3-7 mininterval recordings at a recent family trip. I didnt like the removal of the physical picture takingbutton. Now it is on the touch screen. This makes it hard to capture the spontaneous, nonposedphotos because the touchscreen can be unresponsive at times, other times I wanted to take photobut actived a reticle on the screen so the picture was missed. What Im doing now is justcontinuously holding the photo button and hoping I can capture a good image. Again I dontconsider this a big loss because the picture taking capability of the M30 was just OK to beginwith. The touch screen is mostly responsive. Luckily I stick with the auto settings so dont fiddlemuch with it. You can do all sorts of enhancements to the video on the camcorder itself but I findit superfluous. The wifi couldnt connect to my router which I suspect I can get to work if Ichange some router settings but also seems superfluous. Otherwise good camera. Great videowith good lighting, good video in low lighting.See all 43 customer reviews...My Associates Store | Shopping Cart Browse by CategoryPatio Furniture SetsCamera & Photo Similar ItemsRainbowimaging Infrared Remote C...$9.09SanDisk Extreme 32 GB SDHC Class...$33.96
