Canon LEGRIA HD camcorders feature Wi-Fi, MP4 support


Three new camcorders announced by Canon at CES include Wi-Fi connectivity and support MP4 for playback on iPhones and iPads, and for uploading to social media sites.

Canon's LEGRIA HFM52, HFR38 and HFR36 all feature Wi-Fi connectivity, with DLNA support to allow easy wireless playback on compatible TVs, plus the Movie Uploader iPhone app to upload videos to Facebook or YouTube.


The camcorders also support MP4 recording for direct playback on iPhones and iPads without the need for transcoding.

Other features include backup to an external hard drive via an optional USB adaptor, intelligent image stabilisation, and a Story Creator tool to help build a finished movie without complicated editing.

The HFM52 features the Canon HD CMOS PRO sensor (as used in the company's XF professional cameras), audio scene select (to obtain realistic audio in various situations), 32GB of internal memory, and an optional waterproof (to 40m) case. It weighs 310g.

The HFR36 and HFR38 offer 32x optical zoom and weigh just 250g. The HFR36 comes with 8GB of internal memory, while the HFR38 has 32GB.

A range of accessories are available for the LEGRIA camcorders.

The three new models are scheduled to ship in March. Prices have yet to be announced.
